I have always wanted the secluded, peaceful camping experience you see in movies. I have camped all across Canada and have found that Brent will live up to your ideal camping expectations. Things you should know: 1. From the main office at the highway, you must drive an additional 50 mins on a secluded gravel logging road to get to the campground. Motion sick ppl bring remedies. 2. There are no modern amenities such as a store (it was closed for who knows how long) once you get to the site. Make sure you bring everything you need because the trip back to the main road is looooong and winding.The park ranger drives around and sells firewood from his truck, though. 3. There is ZERO cell service beyond the main office. 4. During the day the wind picks up on the lakeview sites, but it dies down in the evening. 5. These are the cleanest washrooms I have ever encountered at a campsite. 6.All the staff were super friendly and welcoming. Everyone waves to each other everywhere. 7. We stayed 2 nights at site 6. Had 2 picnic tables and a spacious area. Private water access. Site was very private and lovely.

My wife and I stopped here to camp for a night on a road trip from Wisconsin to Lake Placid, the location was perfect for breaking the drive up. The drive into the campground is lengthy, on a gravel road with minimal views. Walk the Brent Crater trail to the lake, its worth it. Once in the grounds the views a pristine and undeveloped. A short walk from your campsite leaves you immersed in nature. Bring everything you need, very few amenities.

We came during the Canada Day long weekend. The place was beautiful and peaceful. Great for canoeing and kayaking. However the mosquitoes and bugs were terrible. Unless you hide inside the tent or stay on the water far from shore, the army of mosquitoes will swirl around and bite you. We went though bottles of repellent. Couldn't go on any trails because of the bug situation. We cut the trip short and fled home.

Will definitely be back in the fall as the deer fly and mosquitoes had a feast on me in July with the ongoing forest fires the air was constantly thick with smoke and then the onslaught of rain didn't help however bad the lake is beautiful perfect for a quiet kayak and the privacy is the best no crazy boaters or jet skis the way nature intended

Rented the Deputy Ranger Cabin for the weekend and loved it. Rustic, with a bit of a carpenter ant problem - but good layout - propane fridge and heater worked well, spacious for two. The kitchenette outside is a great idea, and the views were beautiful. Rented kayaks from the Brent store & spent the day on Cedar lake. No cell service at all, very peaceful. Really enjoyed reading the traveler's log book in the cabin. :)
