great although not extraordinary sceneries, best one is probably Champlain Belvedere for cars and bikes, or better Mont King for hikers Nice mountain bike rides as well as roadbiking. Hiking is not as thrilling. Kingsmere is nice to visit and accessible by car If you arrive by Philip's Lake, nice beach in summer where you can canoe and camp but... More

I make sure to visit the park a couple times a year. The Fall Rhapsody is absolutely gorgeous from the top of the park at the Champlain lookout and definitely a must see. The various walking trails make the park a joy for hours. The winding roads to the top make the drive very enjoyable for any motorcycle enthusiast.

Nice park to have a walk through and enjoy the scenery. Not much to see in the Winter so will return in the Spring when things start to bloom again.

The park offers a great experience for all season, for all types of athletes and non athletes. Be part of the nature, enjoy what we have in our backyard. Refresh and reenergize. People will be able to take a great walk or a run spring, summer and fall. Winter is a paradise for cross-country skiers, snow showers, fat bikers (the... More

It helps that there was fresh snow, but the skiing in this beautiful park is excellent. Very well maintained trails. Excellent visitor center. Very peaceful place. Expansive and extensive trail system, most quite easy.

Went with a group of friends for a two night winter camp. The trails were beautiful and well marked with a good variety of talisman for different skill levels. The cabins were great.. a note of caution, don't over stuff the wood stove cause you will be sweating all night.

I hike all year long. I love having dinner in one of the refuge. Great variety of trails that would cater to everyone. Great beaches. Parc is great for cycling, snowshoing, cross-country skiing, hiking, walking with your dog on a leash.

This park was great, we have traveled and camped a lot as a family and this one is up there. The water was great for swimming, tons of hiking and canoeing. They also have a great park to play in for kids, so much to do and so little time here. No one was board on our trip here. The... More

Stunning place particularly during winter for winter sports. Great place for SnowShoeing, skiing and even causal hike. Very friendly and helpful staff at the visitor Center. Make sure to pick up a map
