There is some wheelchair access in the park.
The boat launch is located at the south end of the park, accessed by turning turn left at the park entrance. The boat launch is accessible all year. The boat launch extends down to the water line even at low water levels. Adjacent to the launch is a long floating dock that parallels the launch suitable for tying up vessels. A 25 vehicle parking lot is available nearby for overnight parking.
Cold potable water is available for cooking and drinking. The water is pumped up from the lake into a treatment facility where the water is filtered (sand, cartridge and UV filters) and chlorinated. Six taps are conveniently located in the park, four in the campground and two in the day-use/picnic area. Taps are shut off during the off-season.
The day-use/picnic area is located along the lake shore, adjacent to the wash house. Facilities in this area include 6 picnic tables that over look the lake, fire pit, garbage receptacles, a playground, 2 pit toilets and two water taps. The beautiful sandy beach is ideal for spending time lounging in the sun and enjoying the great swimming opportunities. Although this area is recognized as the main day-use/picnic site, many visitors stroll along the entire length of the 2 kilometer beach to enjoy the sun, sand and water.
For information on the park and surrounding area, visit the information shelters at the campground entrance and opposite site #46 , the park host at site #19, or talk to any park staff.
This park has nine pit toilets conveniently located throughout the park, and one shower building that has a single flush toilet in each of the men’s women’s and family rooms.
While campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood can be purchased in the park for $8 per bundle or you may bring your own wood. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.
The shower building is located adjacent to the day use parking lot (for registered camping parties only). The facility has 3 showers (including a disability accessible stall) as well as a flush toilet in of the men’s and women’s side of the facility. In addition, there is a barrier-free family room complete with shower, toilet, sink and infant change table.

It has three convenient turn around locations strategically positioned along its entire length. The park has 73 vehicle accessible sites; of which four sites have tent pads, and seven sites (#22/23, #34/35, #41/42, #47/48, #55/56, #57/58, #66/67) are doubles suitable for two or more camping parties.
