This is a nice stop to stretch your legs and enjoy the views, use the well maintained, clean outhouses or enjoy a nice picnic. Clean quite spot to walk around on some of the short trails and great spot for photographers.

The scenes are absolutely gorgeous! I have compared this to the lakes in Ontario and there is something very special and different about this area. The holes are fabulous and it's a photographers heaven. A Must see!!

Fortunate with the weather, we had clear views across the sea and good chats with other travellers. We did not have time to venture from the main road.

Most people won't recognize that the huge mountain that they climb when leaving Ingonish is a provincial park. It is worth at least stopping at the lookout for the view back to Ingonish before heading on.

Stopped here just briefly to take in the views and take some photos. We did not do any kind of real hike.
