Great for the photographer, the birder and the hiker. Multiple trails from easy to very difficult so pay attention to which one you might choose.

Another beautiful spot along Georgian Bay to go for a hike. Bring good hiking shoes as you will need them. Kids and adults both loved the trails.

We camped in the park late August and enjoyed the visit although next time, since we like kayaking, we would ensure that we had a site on the water. Toting the kayaks from just two rows over became tiring. Best lake to enjoy tossing the...More

This campground was fantastic. It was nice and wooded and we had a large site. We stayed in the poplars area at site number 151. The lake itself is amazing, with crystal-clear water. It is very shallow which would be helpful for young children, but...More

Hi. We're planning on coming mid June. Does our National Park pass get us in to the parking for the Grotto? Since Cyprus lake campground has no hookups, can we fill with water at the taps and is there a dump station to use when leaving the park?
