We stopped by to see the fall colours, and were not disappointed. Though a relatively busy park in the summer, it was mostly empty in the fall (as far as we could tell we were the only ones there.) We didn't have time for all of the trails, but we did have a chance to walk down one, to where a spur leads to a bench overlooking the lake. In one of the better areas to see fall colours, it was a good place to see them.

We have not been here for over 30 years so did not know what to expect. What a pleasant surprise!!! We camped here for 2 nights in our old VW Westy in the Pincer Bay area and had the place to ourselves. The site was huge, clean and beautiful. Even if there had been other campers we would still have had a lot of privacy. The weather was warm so hiking and swimming we great. Next time we will bring our kayaks to enjoy the lakes and we will definitely stay longer. The only negative comment would be the design of the new park office and roadways. It seems a little backwards for parking, access to the desk and the water station.

Beautiful and clean campground. The girls at the front office were great but one person sticks out even more by the name of Danielle. She was an absolute pleasure to speak with, provided information without us feeling like we should know the answer. Always willing to help!! Kudo's to Danielle!!
Canoe rental process went really well, beach is clean and washrooms as well. Our site was a good size as well. We celebrated my hubby's 60th BD with family and friends; having two sites. The park is nice and quiet. Would go again in a heartbeat!!

Bucket List: visit every Provincial Park in Ontario. We were up at the cottage and decided to check out Silent Lake PP. We had camped here in 2001 but had not been back since. It is a very nice park. Took a look at the cabins and thought that would be a fun weekend trip. There are also a number of yurts here. The washroom facilities were very clean. The beach is small but nice. They have walk-in sites along the water. The sites are a fair walk from the beach but you can drive or bike over. Hope to come and stay here some time.
