The camp grounds were amazing and everyone was so nice. Brendan was a gracious host and was kind enough to show me around the grounds and made me feel extremely welcome.

This is a fantastic spot. It is my second year and I’ve already booked a third summer! Fantastic fishing, beautiful views, and extremely friendly staff. Firewood delivered to the campsite on a quiet bay. Recommend to paddle your equipment in as the walk is challenging, but pleasant without your gear. Padding over to the marina for a burger and ice cream can’t be beat! Highly recommended 😀

We absolutely loved our stay at the Cranberry Bay Campsite. Such a quiet place to camp, all the while enjoying a beautifully view. They even gave us some fire wood and allowed us to use a canoe. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Would 100% camp here again!

My partner and I go camping every year for our anniversary and this has been our favourite spot by far! The canoeing, clean and beautiful campsite, and nearby hiking trails really made this a special trip. Thanks Brendan and Jon!

The Cranberry Bay camp site itself is very nice.
We found it tidy and no garbage was visible.Super!
There was two small pieces of fire wood left for us. Nice!
Brendon, please emphasize in better detail how long and challenging the trail walk in is!, suggest light equipment. (If your in shape and have 4 people to spread out the load you’ll do fine.)
The Canoe and paddles and life jackets were all in brand new shape!!!.Great!
( Canoeing your stuff in is way easier!.)
No parking near site trail was a real pain.
We had to ask for fire wood a few times on Sunday and got it just before dark on the last request, requested wood on Mon but never arrived!, thumbs down.
All the water around the camp site is full of weeds makes swimming hard. No good almost 40•c.
Great fishing!.
The beach and volleyball area were kept nice but the water in and around the small marked out swim area was full of weeds and water was full of oil and red algae. Couldn’t attempt the platform dock too much weeds!. Thumbs down!.
Hosts were nice and very approachable but all the staff seemed like kids who were at a camp themselves.
Please warn campers that your camp is in the train corridor and loud train horns are sounded every 2 hours every 24!!!!!!!!!!!!. Not a quiet spot!!.
People in the last cottage were loud and partying until 3 in the morning on Sunday. Not cool!!.

All in all for the price and the distance it’s a great spot but bring your ear plugs , and THC or no sleep!.(would be a slice of heaven without the trains!!!!!!!!!!!! ) bring with you ice, and all supplies hard to resupply without a boat!.
