Absolutely perfect

I flew in with my PA34 (Piper Seneca) from Birmingham Alabama via Toronto buttonville (CYKZ) along with 4 others on board, we stopped in to see family. And friends in the area. The runways are fantastic and very well taken care of, I've landed on paved runways that were not as good as this place. The staff and airport manager were excellent, extremely friendly and very helpful. Fuel was cheaper than anywhere else I could find in the region. I would highly recommend this little place, it's in a wonderful area and it is in perfect condition to land anything from a home build, or a light twin right up to a Kingair.. This place has no issues whatsoever.

we found the 2 runways very smooth for turf. great place to visit and tie-down for awhile.its a small airport with a lot of potential to be a very busy place of interest. the flying club there r very helpful gang of flyers.all in all its a cool place to touch-down and hang out on the huge deck over looking the runways

South River CPE6

12/30 has been reduced to 75' width; 04/22 is still full width. The idea is to make space for hangar lots on the south side of the airport property (MNR owns the land around the airport). The airport committee is taking their own sweet time to move on this, however.

Still cash or cheque for fuel (100LL). The runways have been thoroughly rolled this spring, and are very smooth (for turf on a sand base). The hill mentioned below is on the approach end of 30; be prepared to land deep, but touchdown before the intersection is not demanding for light aircraft. The rest of the runway approaches are pretty flat, although 04 could use some tree-pruning at the approach (south) end. There are some cell towers to the west and south of the field, just outside the circuit. Currently, there is one more (and bigger) hangar than the picture shows, at the south-east end of the line of three hangars.

Hills

There are lots of hills surrounding the airport -- there's nothing scary, but you do have to be on top of things. The grass runway was in fairly good shape (a little bumpy, but no holes), and there are nosewheel planes based at the airport, so they obviously maintain things (taildraggers can handle much rougher ground than nosewheel planes). I like the airport, and I plan to stop there again, though I might not want to try outclimbing the hills with my family on board on a hot summer day. The runway is good and long (over 3,000 feet), so that's not an issue.
