Pretty good private campsite (#9) nice view of the ridge. Pit toilets and showers are quite a walk. Ranger checking in wss too busy on her phone to give us a map. But it was very peaceful and quiet.

Have camped at several Prov Parks and found this one not be on par with say one like Cheeseman near Port aux Basque. The park staff were quite good. The sites need some dressing up with grass cut etc.

Yeah, definitely. It is a bit cool in the morning, but being freshwater in a closed albeit large pond, it does heat up enough to be tolerable and even pleasant after about noon!
