Kettle (3.5 km) interpretive trail takes you on the path of ancient glaciers. Walk along an esker (winding gravel ridge deposited by glaciers) to a kettle lake left behind when the glaciers retreated. We didn’t get a chance to do this hike, but it was highly recommended by parks staff.

Jarvis Lake, Cache Lake, and Graveyard Lake campgrounds have unserviced sites.
- Jarvis Lake looked the most appealing as it has a boat launch, playground, and beach with many shaded sites and walk-in tent sites. Reservable.
- Cache Lake is smaller (14 sites), but has treed sites and a playground. FCFS.
- Graveyard Lake is the smallest campground with 7 sites in an open grassy area. FCFS.
- Art in the Park at the Gregg Lake Boat Launch (so much fun!),
- Amphitheatre shows at Gregg Lake,
- Presentations at Gregg Lake Campground, and
- Family activities like pond dipping.
Check at the Visitor Centre or your campground for upcoming events.
I would recommend Switzer Park to families who like to get off the beaten path and spend lots of time on the water. This is a great place to paddle!
