Was in the area on business today when I checked this place out. It was closed plus was gated so I as able to get in by walking in here. Therefore I parked the car and walked around thus checked it out with some time on my hands. Appears great for camping, family activities, sports plus other outdoor activities. It... 更多
The park has numerous activities, including hiking/walking, boating, camping and picnicking. The park seems spacious, and was not too busy on Sunday, Sept 11. Overall we enjoyed the time at the park, although there were signs of people not picking after their dogs. I would recommend that the park should be pet-free.
We visited on a Sunday with 3 other families. We used to camp here often when our boys were little but have not been here in about 7 years. The beach is a nice size although the sand is not that nice, and the bottom of the lake is muddy so the water gets very cloudy and there was green... 更多
We visited Valens and enjoyed this conservation area. The entry fee was typical-$10.00 for car and driver and $5.00 for each passenger. There are no lifeguards but a buoy line is set up for a large swimming area. There are plenty of garbage containers scattered around the beach area. The bathrooms are exceptionally clean and, no matter what time we... 更多

We have done a lot of Ontario Provincial Parks and find them to be of good quality but now that we have tried Valens we know that there is a very good alternative. The sites were very clean, spacious and well situated in our campgrounds and there was lots to do and see. Given that this is basically a reservoir... 更多
We've camped at Valens a few times. There is a nice beach with a lot of shallow area for the little ones. For those who like to fish there are several docks to fish off. Last time there we rented kayaks and spent a few hours paddling up and down the lake. There are also canoes available to rent. The... 更多
We spent 2 nights at Valens and am planning another trip in a couple weeks. The lot we had was very large and nicely shaded. It had 2 picnic tables, a fire pit and was close to the washrooms. Great spot! The beach was excellent to spend the day at and the bridge is great for some fishing. We didn't... 更多
