Considering the inconsistency of Ontario Provincial Parks this one takes the cake. Nice large well groomed sites and that's the end of the pleasantries. One male and one female shower for hundreds of campsites. They can't keep them clean. There's crud in the corners and...More

The place was easy to find and there's a road directly to the parking lot above which makes it easy for those to access the hanging bridge. Many go for the hanging bridge, but it's so so. The floor is see-through with skeletal metal frames,...More

Visited Ferris with husband and teenaged daughter on June 29 and 30th. This is a great park to visit for the weekend - it is beautiful and right next to the town of Campbellford, so lots to do here for a weekend or long weekend....More

Nice well maintained paths to hike, walked down near the river and sat on the rocks although afterwards noticed signs that recommended not to do so because of the dam. We only went for the day but they do have camp grounds.
