    Spent a short overnight trip here, my first time. Stubb’s falls was a pretty hike and the falls themselves were spectacular. The campsites are large and spaced out. The beaches are also well maintained with picnic tables and close to parking. They require either driving or a long walk to get to. I stayed at site 336. There was a large puddle of water at the end of my site and an even larger one at 337. The site itself was dry and backs onto a ravine with a forest area. Pretty views in the fall. My only real complaint is the park is close to hwy 11 so at times you can hear the highway noise.

    We had an amazing time at this maple syrup making venue, the owners were so kind and helpful explaining the process and allowing us to visit their woods to see the pipes that collect the syrup, they have a walking trail so you can see for yourselves.

    Travelled with 3 kids. Two 4 year olds and one 2 year old. Rides were great for the kids at this age however if a bit older and more of a thrill seeker they may be bored. Good variety of activities between elf school, animals, rides, Santa, splash pad, boat ride to easily fill the day. The park was well maintained and very clean. We visited on a Monday and were surprised by some longer lines.

    Elf school was great but a long wait if you get there just after a class starts.

    The only negative was the food. A lot of places were closed and we waited 20 mins for ice cream to get to the front and had very limited selection.

    Would highly recommend for families with young children however would make sure to pack your own snacks and lunch.

    Dorset Scenic Lookout Tower is located in Dorset and a short drive from Dwight. You can park at the bottom of the hill and pay a small amount or you can drive up the hill and pay a bit more and park closer to the tower.

    We did the latter and there is quite a bit of parking so you should be able to find a spot.

    To get to the top of the tower you have to climb a metal staircase and there are places to pause and admire the view or get your breath back.

    Obviously there are stairs and they are a bit steep so I would not recommend climbing this if you are a person who struggles with stairs or heights. You may not want to take children up unless you are sure they can manage the climb.

    That said it is a magnificent view from the top of the surrounding area.

    Back at the bottom there are other places you can get a view including Peek-a-boo Rock and also check out the giant binoculars.

    There is a gift shop which also sells refreshments like drinks and snacks there so you can get some souvenirs of your visit.

    We went there as a group for dinner after meetings. The food is incredible . We had 5 course meal for a bunch of people full of allergies , gluten free options , lactose free options , vegan options. They paired food and beer for the ones that could drink it . Everything was out of this world

    Scenery picturesque hike. Park front gate is closed in winter. Luckily snow falls on the days we was there makes it even more beautiful. Lots of tall trees looks feel secluded at night

    We only found this on the way up to Gravenhurst and bought tickets online. There is a wide variety of exhibits and a lot of boats in the centre. Not all histories for the boats were complete but they were still filling in details. Exhibits were well laid out with quite a lot of information available.

    Booked online & no problem that we were the only two on the tour. Martha was very informative.
    Thoroughly enjoyed the post-tour wine tasting, followed by a cheese platter on the patio.
    We did do one of the trails after lunch but did have to cut it slightly short because of the bugs. However, we did enjoy this too, especially when we saw a beaver!

    After a week of lake effect snow, the trees had about 6 inches of snow on the branches. It was beautiful and perfect. I have bad knees but we found a perfect 5 km hike in boots without a lot of vertical. The paths seem to be pretty packed so I don't think anyone needs snowshoes unless they're looking forward to it. Pretty quiet on a weekday.

    I have been to this area many many time not just Beausoleil Island. Parked a boat many time at other National treasures other than this island. There are incredible views and nature, great camping and great places to put your boat either on the hook, or at a park dock (if your lucky to get a spot). Its a must see place. Great out buildings for campers to get out of the rain with bear proof lockers. Some camp sites with decks for a tent and bear proof places for garbage The biggest advice is to be mindful of the weather, the rocks in the water, and watch where your going on the land and water.
