It was a great summer for many campers across the province and that includes here in the southeast.
"It was absolutely fantastic in the park," shared Joan Adams, Parks Manager. "We had a really good summer."
"We had rain early on in the season and everything was lush and green. And then it just got hot and dry which makes for good camping weather."
She added that numbers are still being crunch but she thinks that they are close to or over the normal amount of visitors.
"Moose Mountain Park is just an absolutely beautiful park and we are an anomaly here in the southeast corner of the province that we are a forest. So I think that's a big attraction. People like the privacy and the campgrounds. Plus there are seven commercial businesses in the park so there's something for everybody. And we have a big beautiful lake and people like to get out there and enjoy that kind of recreation."
A number of upgrades are planned for the fall.
"Right now in Fish Creek Campground, it's closed for the season because we are doing some electrical upgrades to some of the sites and also paving. We have a paving crew in there right now that is improving some of those interior roads."
"Fish Creek Campground is closed by Lynnwood is still open. So we still have 30 electrical sites that are open with full services meaning showers and bathrooms and water until the end of the month. Half of them are first come first serve and half you can go online and reserve."
She does note that the ATV trails have been closed since Monday.
Tent caterpillars that were a bit of an issue last summer were nowhere to be seen this year.
