Mew lake offers section w/o pets and radios with most of the sites right on the lake's shore. All these are nice and quiet with enough space between sites to have a feeling of privacy. The only drawback is that the common rooms (with showers) are quite far and you'll probably end up driving your car to get into shower... More

We stayed here during the winter months while doing some backpacking(day trips). Location is perfect and the wolves at night howling put us to sleep every night. The sites are spacious and some right on the water. You can also pick up the side trail of the Track and Tower trail that leads through the old airfield. If you are... More

While the campground is located right off of Hwy 60, the noise of the highway wasn't that noticeable at our site (23). We had easy access to the bike trail - which was fantastic, being able to ride for 12 km on an old railway line to a variety of lakes set further back from the highway. We liked the... More

The campsites are really nice and big with privacy. We use tents and were in #113 in the no dog/no radio area. The lake is a bit small for canoeing but it does have a nice beach. There are lots of trails and a store nearby. I would do this again!

Good and bad here.... We actually stayed in a yurt. Yurt #36. We went in May, so we were expecting some cooler weather and thought the yurt would be perfect. It has heat, etc. Well, the heater was not working properly. The first night was very chilly... we were zipped in our sleeping bags right around our heads. We had... More

We camped here from May 8 to 12, 2016. We were on site 51 with a 32 ft. fifth wheel. The site was beautiful, right on the lake. Easy to back into, and fairly level. The weather was nice, but still pretty cold. We had to wear winter coats mornings and evenings. There were patches of snow still everywhere, and... More

Stayed in yurt number 65 with our daughter who is 14 months old. This yurt is right on the water which is nice and it is right beside the beach. The beach isn't what we expected... not a lot of sand, it's more grass but it's still a nice spot to swim. The black flies were a bit intense (we... More

We stayed in yurt 49 from the end of May to early June - it was a mid-week visit so not overly busy, but as our yurt backed on to the water, it was still busy where we were located and had neighbours on either side. The yurt and campground space itself was spacious, although I wouldn't put more than... More
