Stayed here in late December and it was gorgeous. Beautiful forest and lots of wildlife sign. Would love to go back in Summer. The park seems pretty accessible and there are few people in winter. There is also a lot of ice fishing, snow-mobiling and snow-shoeing

What's not to like about P.A. National Park? This time of year (November) there are no crowds, but no amenities such as a store or liquor outlet, so keep that in mind.

We were in Waskesiu for three days. We canoed The Hang Heart Lakes, Which was fabulous and Waskesiu Lake west of the Narrows, which was very good. We tried the Waskesui River but it was too shallow and scraped up my homemade canoe quite badly. I wouldn't take advice from the visitor centre very seriously. We also did some excellent... More

Beautiful place to visit any time of year, but the autumn colours were amazing. There are plenty of nature walks to take, and you won't be swarmed by people while you take advantage of them. Nice, quiet place to visit where sometimes all you can hear is the wind whispering in the treetops.

Every year we go camping in the national park. We have went on nature trails and drives pretty much everywhere. Through out our years we have seen lots of wildlife and experienced lots of different weather patterns. its been fun and joyful.

It has been about 20 years since I last was here. Sure, it has changed, but yet it is still the same. There are lots of amazing hiking trails, if you like. You can go for a swim, sit on the sandy beach - there is lots of that too. Very relaxing.

Being from the states we felt we would experience some of the Canadian national treasures. Upon arriving at the park we drove directly to Waskesiu and spent some time there walking through the town and viewing the lake. It was all very quaint and picturesque. After leaving the town and driving around we found that signage or direction to any... More

I recommend this for everyone. Its a wonderful getaway in the Boreal Forest. The Elk roam free, and can bee seen if your lucky enough early in the morning down by the beach water. Lots of awesome hiking trail if that your thing. Or just kick back at the beach and chill for the afternoon. Lots of accommodations provided. With... More

We enjoyed the Boundary Bog trail. It is 2 km with 1/3 wooden Boardwalk. The circular trial leads to a small lake. You can ride but need to carry your bike up some steps. Many mozzies so bring repellant. The trail head is just inside the park gates where you pay off 264. Very charming. Mud Creek trail is on... More

Absolutely beautiful park. Even with construction do not miss this area. Waskesiu is a very quaint town with lots of rentals and great campground. Very picturesque area with great gold courses
