Beautiful secluded quiet location. Site not all that level, but ok for my 25' travel trailer. I agree with other reviews re access to water fillup and dump. Scout it out before you pull in, to be sure you're in the right position.

Pros: Nice river, beach, tubing (what a hoot!), Voyageur canoe rides, museum, activities for the kids. This is a must-visit park. Cons: We stayed in Jingwakoki again, site 204. Great big site, but hard to get onto because of the trees. Most sites in this area are badly sloped. Get one on the top road for the best chances of having something level. On our final night there were some partiers going until the wee hours. As usual the provincial parks do nothing about it (even if they patrol, it's hard to hear anything from inside a Crown Vic or a pickup truck -- they need good shoes, bikes or hybrid cars. Luckily the new trailer is quiet inside! Cautions: (1) The water fill for trailers is at a pull out about 1km in from the main gate, but the tap is on the right side of the trailer. You may need your freshwater hose to fill up your tank. (2) The dump station is quite well hidden in a bush, and the road is a loop. Signs say to go to the left if your valves are on the left, and go to the right if your valves are on the right. I've never seen a trailer with the dump valves on the right-hand side, but with the dense bush it's hard to tell if anyone is in there. You could end up coming nose-to-nose with another trailer, and one of you will have some tricky backing up to do down the typically narrow dump station road (never room to get around another rig). They should have a stop line to hold trailers back so you can check before going in, or just make it one way.
