Four members of our family rented a canoe for 4 and spent an enjoyable hour on the lake. Life jackets were readily available and all equipment was in good condition. Price was a reasonable C$30. Picnic tables and restrooms were nearby.

Was a great relaxing experience. One of our friends was pregnant. She found it comfortable. The birds swimming around elegantly add to the experience. It's a regular place for me.

I am not sure if I would call it a lake, but potatoe/potato. Maybe a large swamp? The staff is usually teeny boppers there for a summer job so take it with a grain of salt. The lake is gentle (no waves) and just large...More

I visit this place quite often during summers. It's best place for a family day out or friends. The view is nice. It's best for families on budget.
