  • Berry BINGO

      Thursday, May 16, 2024 - Monday, September 2, 2024
    Berry BINGO

    Tour the campground and hiking trails in search of edible berries from the forest! When the berries aren't out yet, you can still identify a berry-bearing plant based on its flowers and/or leaves.

    • While it is okay to taste a few edible berries in provincial parks, they are very important food sources for the wildlife and they play an important role in re-seeding the ecosystem, so you must get permission from a Conservation Officer before picking large quantities.
    • Never eat any berry unless you are 100% certain of what it is and that it is safe to eat. 

     

    Where: Marten River
    Registration:

    Request a Berry BINGO booklet at the campground booth.


    Fee: Free!

  • Discovery Packs

      Thursday, May 16, 2024 - Monday, September 2, 2024
    Discovery Packs

    Discovery Packs can be rented on a per-day basis from the campground booth. Age recommendations are based on the complexity of the included Activity Books. We strive to include topical story books and non-fiction books that may be suitable for other age ranges for families with several children. Each pack includes activity books for one person; you can request more activity books from the booth staff at time of rental if you need more.

    Astronomy Discovery Pack (Recommended for ages 10 and up)

    Can you identify a constellation? Have you ever seen a shooting star? Camping provides a great opportunity to view the stars and other astronomical events. Rent an Astronomy Discovery Pack and explore the night skies at your own pace. Each backpack includes astronomy binoculars, field guides to the sky, story books, and an activity book. You get to keep the activity book when you return the Discovery Pack!

    NOTE: Due to the long days of summer, your children will get the most out of this Discovery Pack if you are willing to wake them up when it's dark out for an extra special camping experience.

    Birdwatching Discovery Pack (Recommended for ages 12 and up)

    Provincial Parks are awesome places to spot wildlife! Rent a Birdwatching Discovery Pack and learn birdwatching basics while you're camping. Each backpack includes birding binoculars, a field guide to birds, story books and an activity book. You get to keep the activity book when you return the Discovery Pack!
