A former Provincial Park but deteriorated since turned over to private owner. The road to cg is paved but interior road is a disaster. I drive part way in and viewed sites which were unfinished and unkempt. It reminds me of a gravel pit surrounded by trees. I wouldn't take my RV over the roads and certainly wouldn't stay. I don't know the price but whatever it is would be too much. We camped at Cochrane Pond Family Campground in a Motorhome.

The filthiest campground we've ever seen. Arrived very late so little choice. We didn't have a hook-up hence the rate but it was a disgrace. Had we known we'd have stayed by the highway. Litter everywhere - bags of garbage just left around for the crows to tear open. And there was a terrible smell. We camped at Cochrane Pond Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The worst campground I've ever seen. Dogs running loose, loud music playing until midnight, site 6 had a water hose in the sewer connection that looked like it had been used to clean out a clogged line because it had what appeared to be dried toilet paper and other material from the sewer on it and on the electrical hook up beside it. We camped at Cochrane Pond Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.
