CAM – CH”A”LETS READY


The summer is starting to shape up for Sugarloaf Provincial Park, and its
proving to be a busy one. The park is well known for its bike trails, hiking,
and camping.

But one of the newest park features is proving to be quite popular. The “A”
frame shelter chalets have proven to be a hit for both their convenience and
ability to get out of the elements.

Park manager Greg Dion tells the Tribune, all people really need for the huts
is a pillow and a sleeping bag.

The chalets have two bunk beds, sleeping up to six, a table and chairs, and a
barbecue. They can be rented by contacting the park.
