    This place is beautiful, a must see! However it was a friday afternoon in June when we went and it was pretty busy. We booked our parking in advance (we were able to get in them the day before- in the "off summer months"). We went with younger children and someone with disabilities and the easy route was definitely do able however the grotto was much more difficult for them but managed with some help. They had lots of clean washrooms before and through the hike.

    We used blue heron boat and the tour to get to the island was great. The island was fun. Wayyy too chilly for being in water....water is always cold anyway! But beautiful. For us, we were done in 2 hours and had to wait for the boat To come back.

    We got our parking permit online and everything went great. Hiked to the Grotto and back via Cypress Lake. Beautiful views of crystal clear waters. It was quite busy in the afternoon already but still very enjoyable! Perfect weather and temperature for us. Loved the whole experience!

    The views were absolutely beautiful! A must see at least once in a lifetime! Atmosphere cannot be explained. You must see for yourself in order to get the full experience of all the beautiful places offered.

    Beautiful spot - very easy to access. Very easy to visit in a short amount of time. Many people were swimming there. We stayed nearby and were able to walk from our place, which we very much enjoyed.

    So much fun! A little crowded. I noticed a lot of people didn't wear water/trail shoes, who seemed to wish that they had. Mosquitoes were biting, too. The trail was leading there was easy and well-maintained. The view is spectacular.

    Beautiful spot to take a dip! You need to hike about 1.2 km from boat dock to get here. It’s well worth the hike. There is a museum and a small shop to get some pop or chips. Take the early boat ride if you want to hike up beyond the lighthouse.

    Great VC. Wifi, modern restrooms, very in depth display that is covered by your parking pass fee to the grotto. Not many gifts. Trail’s unique to the VC are a nice option, as is the tower.

    This was one of my boyfriend and I's favourite spots when we went last year. There are bathrooms when you first enter the park and further down by the water area. Make sure to bring hand sanitizer or wipes, I do not think the washrooms by the water had sinks. There is no beach area, it is just rocks. We went in August and the water was cold but it was worth it. Make sure you bring WATER SHOES!!! This area is way less busy than the Grotto, I would recommend coming here instead if you do not like crowds. The water and view is amazing, there is also a trail you can hike on. Also, do not forget to buy your Parks Canada parking pass and entry fee online in advance! The parking spots fill up fast. I booked our spot in May and had no problem getting a spot for August.
