We camp here every year in August. A nice family campground and you don't even know you are right in the city. Lots to do with walking trails, fishing, playground, bird sanctuary, history and a great little restaurant if you don't want to cook.

Nice family oriented park with two playgrounds seperated by a stream. Miles of paths to follow through trees, fields, streams,bird santuary and camping. Choice of a sit-down restaurant or 2 take-out windows.

Surprisingly big with lots to interest the young-birds, park with play apparatus and ducks etc. and older with walks and restaurant. Sometimes special events are held there-concerts , films sponsored walks but it offers a pleasant sojourn any time..

Visited the park after several years away, and found it still to be a beautiful place. It has lovely, well tended walk areas, great spots for children, and fun mini-golf, and those special paddle boats. I think the end of the waterway nearest the restaurant,...More

From walking around the park sevea times, there do not appear to be any camping areas that have any real privacy. I definitely love the park but would probably choose a provincial park in the area to camp at.
