With an information centre, spots to get souvenirs, an amazing playground for the kids, water access, a kayak shop and the giant lobster, this was a great spot to visit! We came here for the playground and lobster but enjoyed looking around at everything else.

This was a very relaxing place to take photos and browse in the shops and sit on adult swings while the grand-children played on the slide.

Tourists seemed to love this place, taking pictures on the World's Largest Lobster -- like a lobstrocity out of a Stephen King novel. Several trinket shops dot the shore of the lake, providing souvenirs to mark the occasion.

Quick stop. The shops are very tourist oriented. Nice place to stop for a picnic if you are going through the area.
