  • Despite the negative reviews about the road noise, Craigleith is still a very nice park. The electric sites offer larger pull throughs, but no water or sewer. My only complaint is that we couldn't get...  more »
  • Every two minutes a truck drives by the highway and wakes the baby! The sites are so close to each other. Zero privacy. It's like camping on the highway. There is no beach. Only rocks.  more »
  • our family and I have been visited Craigleith for almost 30 years. Over this period, we have seen minor changes to the park for the good. My wife and I just returned from a quick fall getaway ,4 days ...  more »

  • Great park right on Georgian Bay. Like, our camp site was like 10 meters from the shore with clear views of the water. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the park was clean, and sites were a good size. The sites weren't very private, however, and I did find the road layout confusing, but I managed to find my way out every time. There also wasn't any hiking trails in the park, but you could go swimming and there was a playground for kids.
  • It's very close to Blue Mountain where we had an event to go to. That was the only reason we went there and probably the only reason we will go back to it again. Not the usual Provincial park feel. Sites are nice, but, too close to the road to my liking
  • Visited 2 days after early spring opening, and with cool windy weather, we had some privacy. Scored a parking spot down at the water, and the roar of the waves drowned out the noise of the highway traffic. The tree survival rate is apparently low at this park, due to rocky conditions and no doubt a serious winter beating - with the sites left looking more like parking lot spaces, than campsites. Staff were friendly and helpful however $42 for an unserviced, less-than-pretty campsite is pretty steep!
  • We stayed here on the May long weekend. Park staff were great help and very friendly . Park is a small park but very nice. We stayed on a waterfront campsite it was a beautiful view however it was very very windy .. They do warn you about certain campsites not looking how they do in the photos due to a wind storm but please make sure you are aware.. Our site looked NOTHING like the photos however it was still nice . Sites are defentity not private .. Bathrooms are kept very clean as well. It is right off the highway, we had a waterfront campsite so we couldn't here the cars much but not to sure about the sites closer to the road .Prices are pretty high considering the park doesn't have to much to offer.. But It is a very close about 5-8 min drive to blue mountain and about 40 mins to Wasaga Beach. Overall we enjoyed are stay and would go back.
  • Before the town closed off the adjacent beach and parking, you were able to drive down and park at the beach and go for a swim. So much for freedom, because they closed it off and now you have to either park at the overcrowded public beach or go to the campsite. I have not been to the campsite, and may try it. It sounds better than the beach. I am sad that the town closed off the Rocky beach though. I do not know why they did this but I am irritated by it.

Where to stay in Blue Mountains

Most visitors choose to stay east of the main township, at the base of the Century Express gondola, where a large selection of hotels, resorts, inns, and private chalets caters to all manner of guests. This area is particularly popular between October and April, at the height of the ski season, but the summer months also draw tourists interested in hiking. If you'd rather enjoy some memorable waterfront scenery, stay anywhere along Route 26 Highway.
