Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
July 20 Not a good map
park review stars; one to five Please note that Canadian land is not made of water. Not sure why you do not want to show Canada on your maps but it is very confusing to see all blue as if Erie and Ontario lakes where a big and only one lake and to have water where there is no water.
