Sibbald Point Provincial Park, Georgina

(3.2/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Sibbald Point Provincial Park is a provincial park located in Sutton West, Ontario, Canada on the southern shores of Lake Simcoe, north of Toronto. The park is located to the east of the vacation town of Jackson's Point, and The Briars Resort and Country Club which is still owned by the Sibbald family.Sibbald Point Provincial Park has long sand beaches, sunny and shaded campsites, large grassy picnic areas and a forested hiking trail. The Sibbald family sold the property in 1951 to the County of York and it was open as a County Park until 1956 when the County conveyed it to the Province. The property was then renamed as Sibbald Point Provincial Park and opened in 1957.Two of the major attractions in the park were constructed by the Sibbald family during the nineteenth century. The family home was purchased by Susan Sibbald from Major William Kingdom Rains in 1835. She supervised its transformation from a small cottage into a rural estate, a process which was completed in the 1840s. She named the structure Eildon Hall after the family estate in Scotland. Today the building serves as a museum dedicated to life in rural Ontario during the mid-nineteenth century. The museum is also known as the Sibbald Memorial Museum. An Ontario Historical Plaque was erected by the province to commemorate Eildon Hall's role in Ontario's heritage.Another important structure located adjacent to the park is St. George's Anglican Church. The church was built by Susan Sibbald's sons to replace an existing small wooden church, and was dedicated as a memorial to her. Completed in 1877, it ministers to the community to this day. Attached to the church is a small cemetery which contains the graves of many prominent citizens of the Lake Simcoe area including writers Stephen Leacock and Mazo de la Roche as well as musician Jim Schwalm.

  • I have not camped here, but I do go here for a day trip. It gets really busy, you have up be here early in order to get a good spot on the beach and a picnic table. The staff keep the washrooms really clean. Try the ice cream, it's delicious!
  • Great camp grounds and close to city. Lots of picnic space and volleyball nets for day trip. The beach gets very crowded in summer months and the water is usually dirty with sea weed/algae and tends to smell. Used to be much cleaner. There is a free boat launch and dump area for the RVs.
  • Pets area at far end of beach. Large beach area with roped off swim area plus outer perimeter marked with buoys to separate boat traffic. Terrific playground for kids. Comfort station and water standpipe adjacent to the beach. Lots of parking but does get crowded.
  • We went there for weekend camping. The Campgrounds are nice and very secured. Lots of greens. The beach was a bit too crowdy maybe because of the weekend. Otherwise its a great place for fun and relaxing.
  • Great place to go camping. It offers good fire pits, trails and a lake for your enjoyment. The only problem, which you will find anywhere, is the raccoons. They are feisty and hard to scare away. But they do not ruin your camping fun.
