  • Full Closure - Closure of shower and flush toilet facilities

      July 28, 2020

      • Due to lack of resources required to clean and sanitize the facilities required for COVID-19 guidelines, showers and flush toilet facilities will remain closed for 2020 season.

  • Water Advisory - Miquelon Lake not suitable for swimming

      July 23, 2020

      • Through natural processes, the water in Miquelon Lake has become undesirable for swimming.  Increasing lake temperatures and decreasing water levels have created high concentrations of salt, and plant and bacteria growth. Fecal coliform bacteria is typically present and can cause illness.
      • Park visitors are encouraged to take advantage of the many other summer recreation options at Miquelon Lake, including birdwatching on the lake.

  • Partial Closure - Localized Flooding in Campground

      June 16, 2020

      Due to consistent and higher than average rainfall, a number of campsites in Loop A and B of our campground are flooded.  Please bear with us while we attempt to pump out water from these wet sites, move campers and adapt to changing weather conditions.

      Some of these sites will not be reservable until they are dry and ready for use.

    Affected Areas
      Loop A and Loop B
