  • I like this park and we enjoyed the short hike to the Little Waterfall. Could use a better map to keep on the trail.  more »

  • We loved our time camping here. Sites were spacious and not too close together. There are a few lakes, so a lot of availability to swim, and other water activities. Facilities were spacious and well kept. It was nice to drive around the roads of the park and see the beauty of the area. You hold definitely go check it out. . .
  • Took Egypt Meadow to Bruce Lake Trail. Nice wide trail, great for kids (met someone with a stroller). Also walked Little Falls trail. Short trail, beautiful in spring. A lot of rocks and roots to step over
