Really it's the only place to stop for a quick stretch for many miles. The facilities are kept clean and in good working order. The staff have always been very friendly and helpful. The whole area is absolutely stunning. Definitely a favorite part of Canada. If you are driving through this area make sure to stop here for a break... you won't get another one for a long while anyway!
We love this little rest stop. There are wonderful clean washrooms and a host of park info officers to answer any questions. Wonderful displays and information as well as an amazing souvenir store. Near the water are picnic benches and a play ground for the kids. Definitely worth the stop to stretch your legs and breath in the air.
