A beautiful beach walk at the end topped it off. A very relaxing spot to visit. I would allow at... More

Lake St Clair is a beautiful area with a good gift shop and great restaurant..we did not stay here but were told they have cabins. The staff in the restaurant were lovely and went out of their way to make us comfortable..there was an easy walk around the lake to the boat ramp.

This is a national park and is always amazing. The walks are fantastic although always better in good weather which is rare.

The signage is a little confusing but once you find it, the walk is moderately easy. The views are fantastic, the path easily identified and moderate in effort.
