We stayed in a "Bunnie" which is a small basic cabin with two bunk beds and and a fold out full bed. Basic camp style thin mattresses on a board. Not fancy, but clean, dry and reasonably priced. They have a nice little store, and free Wi-Fi and a phone charging area. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Right from the very welcoming check in to the 'never want to leave' goodbye, we loved our stay at Gordon's Park! Not only are the staff friendly beyond belief, the surrounding environment and night sky was beautiful. We stayed over an early May week, so it was a little chilly at night trying to star gaze, however, nothing a sleeping bag can't solve! Besides, my fiance said 'Yes' under the cool night sky! :) The clean stargazing Cabin was perfect for us and had working lamps, plenty of water and a great view. On site hikes were great (we'd recommend bug spray!) and the showers and bathrooms were all clean. We will definitely be back, hopefully to see the progress/completion of the lake restoration! Thanks again!

We went for the Peresids (?) star party in 2015. The owners were very friendly and the star party was fun. There were plenty of telescopes with enthusiastic owners who loved to show them to the curious. Educational and fun. I would go this year if it wasn't for a scheduling conflict. I can't say much about the accommodations as we were just there for the day. It looks well equipped with a pool and mini golf.

We came out this past weekend for the Aurora Borealis weekend and had a great time. It was our first time on Manitoulin Island so it was very helpful to get a map and some information from Paul at the front. We then settled into the dark sky preserve and headed up for the pot luck. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly, plus the pot luck was perfect after a long drive. It was cloudy Saturday night so we went to bed early. We took advantage of the beautiful day on Sunday to go hiking around the property and check out a couple of places around the area. Sunday night was so clear and beautiful to see the stars. We got a cool lesson in some constellations and looked through the telescope at some of them. It was so magical to see the night sky like that with no light pollution. We were able to get water, rinse dishes and use the cooking station if needed up at the front so that was a huge plus. The privies were very clean and it sure beats a thunder box.

Though the evening/night was hazy Paul our host for the evening made the best of it, the astronomy presentation was informative, and once outside a lot of time was spent demonstrating star hopping and viewing key stars and other objects in the night sky... he clearly knows his stuff Our plan is to return for the Gordon's Park Perseids Party next year and/or head North this year once again once the temperature drops in hopes we can see the Northern Lights.
