  • Nice family car camping park. Facilities are very clean even during the July long weekend. Not very many mosquitoes since your very close to the water line. Very relaxing to fall asleep to the waves rolling into the shoreline. As my 7 year old would say, "cotton candy sunsets". Only thing is I prefer sites be more segregated- separate dog sites and trailers from non-pets and tent only sites.
  • We found this provincial park by checking Google maps for something local to visit. Rock Point was an enjoyable drive from the Niagara region and was worth the trip. They offer plenty of camping spaces along with showers and washrooms. The water was very nice however I don't believe there's much of a beach, but I could be wrong. We went to walk along the rock shore on the east side of the park.
  • Camping like I remember when I was a child. A park and activities for kids on the weekend, fishing and a great beach. I would recommend to anyone! And only 45 minutes from home!
  • Best Ontario Park I have been too. Sites are great, poison ivy was minimal! Had a great time ever in the off season with no park stores open...
  • Great place. The only problem is when you go there beginning of the season on the weekend (Day pass area bi the lake) and you want to relax after week hard work you can't do it! For some reason they save cutting grass for weekend and driving tractor around you for 3-4 hours!! Usually the don't bring to manny picnic tables out beginning season! We hope this year will be better! Going this Sunday and hoping for the best. Ok.. went there Sunday June 11th. Grass is almost 2 feet hi and not to many picnic tables out yet (some one needs kick in but to get the job dun)
