Spent the night at the first camp ground which was nice and quiet . There is absolutely no service up there at all so you'll be disconnected from the world for your stay. Also no gas station after Bathurst although you can buy small quantities of gas at the park ( for more money and only enough to get you... More

This information is specific to the Heritage cabin where we stayed on Nictau Lake.I just wanted to add a review that answers questions that I had before my trip that I couldn't find information on. Our cabin did not have a bathroom or kitchen so our concern was the proximity of the common kitchen and bathrooms, which turns out were... More

This was a bucket list item that got put to the sidelines each and every year. Today was the day and I was not disappointed. It is very challenging and offers a great workout. There are two routes to the peak of Mount Carleton and the 5.2 KM trail is tough and demanding. The 4.4 KM is less strenuous and... More

Arrived after park closed so "camped" outside the gates. Very friendly in morning, paid our park fee, drove to trailhead,ascended the moutain(take a clockwise route with the scramble at the top) and swam in the lake afterwards. Straight forward and enjoyable.

It's doesn't matter your age or how fit you are... anyone can do it! I've done Mount-Carleton twice, once as a teenager and now that I'm 23. Both time it was just so nice! If on a hot day, bring a lot of water. The lady did recommend us to do the long way going up... It does make a... More

We camped for two nights at the Armstrong campground and had time for one hike, the Mount Carleton climb. The campground and facilities are fine, standard campground fare. Everything is consistent with the descriptions provided online. I do, however, have one relevant suggestion for the Mount Carleton hike. The fine folks at the entrance office will advise you to make... More

My partner and I spent 2 nights in the Armstrong campground, and hiked the Mount Carleton trail on a Saturday. We had perfect weather - low 20's, no bugs, clear skies. We walked counterclockwise along this trail and, including lunch at the top and some picture taking/view admiring, it took us just shy of 4 hours to do the entire... More

We decided at the last minute decision to go there. It's in the middle of nowhere, there is no electricity and we loved it. Be prepared to be stunned with the natural beauty of the place. Day-time there are lots of places to hike and at night, the stars and northern light show will take your breath away. We were... More

I visited Mt Carleton park in June and October this year. Both visits were superb and I wished I had more time to explore! You instantly feel like you are in the wilderness, and there is plenty of space to feel like you're alone in nature. Note: it's cash only so plan ahead! There is a store in Armstrong campground,...
