Small lakeside boat launch with picnic area. No signs indicating that overnight camping is not allowed. Another camper in a tent was setup on the grass. Near the main road so a little noises but not bad.

Such a beautiful place right by the water. Perfect for staying a night with your car, VR or tent. There is some table to make some food and eat in peace so it’s really nice. Would really recommend it :)

Still open but I would be surprised if it’s not closed soon… since the washrooms are closed people have decided to use the bathroom on the cobblestone outside of the washroom house. I think it should go without saying that you shouldn’t do this here or anywhere… great spot otherwise.

Good spot for the night clean, beside a river. Parks guy came by to empty the garbage in the morning didn’t have any problems. Washrooms still locked due to covid

Washroom facilities day time hours, security camera and lot lighting, potable external water at side. There was also a johnny-on- the-spot for 24-7 use. Covered picnic area, and a small boat launch for the Black river. Several neighbourhood kids enjoyed swimming off the dock.

The place is ok for a night with nice view of the lake and picnic area, however the noise of the close by road gets worse with big truck driving from early morning

Great place by the black river. Some locals came to chat with us asking us about our destination. We stayed one night. You can hear the trucks on the highway but otherwise it’s a great area with a dry toilet for the construction workers right beside you.

Construction being done but not overnight. They didn’t mind us being there. Busy spot people fishing and launching boats. But pretty spot and okay to sleep at and have some food!!
