We have been going to Valens for almost 15 years now. We take our young kids ages 2 and 7. There is nice trails in this park as well as a great beach. Camping here is also great. We have always found this place to be clean for the bathrooms to the beach, property and trails.

My daughter and I have been camping every year for a few days at Valens, it's close to home in case we forgot or need something. We are getting a hydro spot which is closer to amenities. From most spots, you need at least a bike to get around and to the beach. We usually drive the car there but... More

Nice beach, offers camping as well. Facilities, boat rentals and fishing. Small store and picnic shelters. There are volley ball nets up and lots of shade. No lifeguards on duty. A close drive from Cambridge or Guelph.

Always a nice getaway. Private sites, clean washrooms, water and hydro hookup on site and very close to home! Have been a couple of times now with friends for a weekend and always enjoyed it. We will be back!

I love coming here for hikes with my family, no matter what season. Great views around the lake, lovely scenery and an overall fun hike! Plus the dog loves dipping in the water.

Perfect camping spot for when you don't want to drive far. Very clean facilities and the camping spot we got was big enough for our pop up trailer and another tent with 2 cars parked on site. We booked site 165. Also nice for kayaking and fishing, my daughter had a great time there. Definitely would go back when we... More
