This park is an 18 km drive in on 624 from Hwy. 66, but the road is paved. There are just over 100 sites - #1-65 are electric and #66-103 are non-electric. No cell reception from our site. We only had a one-night stay here, but we did the Lonesome Bog Trail, an easy 1.5 km walk, and we had a magical evening! Hundreds of geese flew overhead in formation, a few otters swam by, loons were calling, and there were so many stars and a full moon!

Beautiful park! We spent three nights in a tent on site 81 at the start of July. Park was very quiet during weeknights, you could hear loons and other birds all day and night. We had a chipmunk visit us. Our site overlooked the lake and was very cozy. Washrooms are dated and need a refresher but were fine. The check in shop was cute and had snacks and park patches. The beach is cozy and the water was crisp! I’m not sure if the visitors centre was just closed during the week but it looked closed up. We really enjoyed our stay. We started the Lonesome Bog Trail but didn’t finish. The path was very narrow and I was scared of ticks-even though we didn’t see any! Mosquitos abound! We cooked 4 times on the fire, it was clean and easy. There is a playground at the beach if you have kids but not really much else that I saw. There’s a ‘baseball diamond’ with sand. This is a perfect place if you just want to go sit in nature and be peaceful. You can do a trail, go canoeing or kayaking, go swimming and get a great sleep! The closest town with amenities is Kirkland Lake, which is a 30 min drive right on the highway. Larder Lake is a decent sized town with amenities at a 30 min drive left on the highway. This area boasts high densities of minerals and crystal formations. There is a beautiful energy in the park!

Beautiful Northern Park with large campsites and amazing starry nights. Washrooms are very dated, and the showers were temperamental--leaving you lathered up with no rinse water. Lots of leaches in all the lakes and bring lots of bug spray.

It was a wonderful time of year to revisit the park after over 50 years. We used to canoe and camp there in the day.

We were there for only two nights and it was great. Camp site was big. We had a fire every night and was very relaxing and quiet. Facilities were clean. Beach area was small but well kept. Water was clear.

Warm, welcoming and helpful reception at the main gate. Empty, as every camper was moving out. Hiked the Bog Trail, the park should call it the Blueberry trail. Scenic, hiked in cold, windy, rainy weather. Blueberries were awesome!
With stops, we hiked it in one hour. Not difficult, solid pair of running shoes did the job. Some small hills. Took in the beach areas, had a picnic at the main beach, with little sandpipers running about. We were the only people there.

This is our second summer on Esker lakes and we loved. Visited last week of July with my teen sons and daughter.
We have the chance to connect as a family and completely disconnect from the world (there is none to very limited service in this area) The lakes are pristine and the wild blue berries are amazing!
We did lots of paddle board and kayaking as well as hike the longest trail to visit all the lakes in the park. plan to bring deep woods mosquito and insect repellent.

Worked here as a Junior Ranger in late 70’s and continue to work in the area. This park is a wonderful gem that few people from down south are even aware of. Lots of trees and private campsites. Older style PP. Love spending time here.

Nice place to canoe, hike and camp... did a lot of canoeing with the kids, some nice routes. Some routes with portages that even the kids could handle.

Making the rounds of the provincial parks as our way of enjoying and celebrating Canada's 150th by exploring parks within reach for a day trip.

Great park for walking trails, pet friendly.
