CALIPER LAKE PROVINCIAL PARK
If a quiet get-away is what you seek, look no further than the woodsy oasis on Caliper Lake. Walk among Caliper’s towering old-growth red and white pine trees.
SIOUX NARROWS PROVINCIAL PARK
Nestled in Regina Bay is a little, hidden gem—beautiful and lush Sioux Narrows Provincial Park. It is picturesque and peaceful. Sioux Narrows Provincial Park is ideal for the lake lover: boating, swimming, sailing, and world-class fishing eagerly await.

10 CAMPING TRICKS & TIPS
Get ready to be a happy camper! Your cultural, outdoor adventure awaits. With two incredible provincial parks, sandy beaches, hidden coves, and lonely islands. Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls is the perfect place to get away from it all.
ONE After cooking a meal, fill a pan of water and leave it on the stove/fire, so the water will be warm enough for clean up.
TWO Bring a throw rug or welcome mat to place in front of your tent/camper. A small broom and dustpan are a must-have as well.
THREE A crumpled ball of foil makes an excellent scouring pad for pots and pans.
FOUR To save time and prep work, create a bin of essential items that you can keep packed and ready-to-go. Make sure the bin is rain and rodent proof.
FIVE Bring two coolers—one for drinks only and the other for food. This will help keep the food cooler from being opened and closed too many times.
SIX Hang soap in a stocking or sock from a tree to keep it off the ground and clean.
SEVEN While it’s best to cook on coals, sometimes you have to cook directly on open flames. For easier cleaning, run the outside of your pots with dish soap. Allow it to dry and then cook with them. This will make the black soot come off easier.
EIGHT Don’t overpack. Pots and pans can be used as mixing bowls to save room, and heavy duty aluminum foil can be used to cook vegetables and meats on or in the fire.
NINE Always pack duct tape. It’s useful for many things.
TEN To keep marshmallows from burning dip them in water before holding them over the flame.
