Great place for camping, the slot is big enough for 2 big tents and a parking slot within. Clean and tidy when we arrived. Pretty close to the washroom so it's convenient in fact. I want to be back here in the future. Recommend this place.
Very close to Grotto at a walking distance. The campsite was very clean and close to Cyprus lake. The washrooms are very well maintained and cleaned up regularly. We hiked until the Grotto and spent the entire day swimming and watching around. The sunset was very beautiful and we were lucky to have clear skies for star gazing at night.
The campground is noisy on the weekend but really tranquil Sunday to Thursday. Nearby Cypress Lake is perfect for a swim! Washrooms were clean. Buy firewood from the folks who live near the park. They advertise at the end of their driveways along highway 6. The wood sold at the campground is wet/green. Ice can be bought at the campground if you need more throughout your stay. Consider hiking to stormhaven or halfway log dump instead of the grotto, which is cool but really crowded.
Great camp ground, sites are spacious and distance between sites makes it feel a little more secluded. The site we had, 228, was very close to the lake and the trail that takes you to the Grotto in about 20-30 minutes depending on your pace. Good sized fire pit and a grill to put over the top if you want to cook over the fire. Two picnic tables and a good space for two, maybe even three 3 man tents. The toilets we're interesting in that they were composting, but had a flash system that stopped the smell coming back up.
Easy access to trails and washroom was awesome for just a compost toilet and sink. Staff patrolled area to make sure people were keeping a bare campsite. Our neighbours didn't listen and unfortunately had a bear visit their campsite. They were very disrespectful of the rules and were loud at 230 am. When staff were contacted to be told of bear and kids I was hung up on. HOWEVER this did not ruin our experience. Our campsite was bare so the bear went right around us. The campsites are widely spaced so you have enough privacy to get away from the distractors. The back of Our campsite was heavily wooded which was very nice. Our campsite was large and allowed 3 structures and a vehicle. We stayed at campsite 250. Close to Cyprus lake for swimming and canoe rentals and Cyprus lake trail connects to all the other trails that lead to the main attractions of the park. I will go back :) firewood and ice are provided at cost at check-in.
