  • Great park! I have been to much larger ones, but this small park with 100 campsite was quite the surprise. Less people in general, great sized beach. Play ground at beach for kids. Washrooms were clea...  more »
  • A small park by Ontario standards, this is still nice with a decent waterfront on Lake Simcoe and a small beach. The beach is evidently not natural, as the sand has been imported, but it feels in plac...  more »
  • I liked this campground for the following reasons: Great beach, lots of space. Not too far from the GTA Close to town in case you forgot something Site 96 which we were on, was decent. The mosquitos a...  more »
  • Wonderful little gem of a park! We used it as an introduction to camping spot for our young kids since it wasn't that far from home. If things went south quick it wouldn't be much to pack and go home. Arrived in a downpour, but that wouldn't stop us. With camp set and the weather cleared, we set out to explore the park. Dampness aside, I was impressed with the facilities provided. Washrooms and showers were clean and tidy. Camp sites were fairly well kept and offered varying degrees of privacy. There is a small playground with a couple of swings near the entrance and visitor parking. The beach was like most that you will find in southern Ontario. Well groomed and generally clear of trash. Kids' playground at the beach kept my kids very entertained. Water was a bit cold when we went, but it was shallow and enjoyable to wade through. There isn't much to explore here, but it is a fairly quiet place to getaway to in the summer and enjoy some relaxing time on the beach.
  • Beautiful park not to far from Toronto. The privacy is great with the exception of the pull through section. The park is not that large with a single comfort station that is in average condition. The site we were on was huge with decent privacy. The trees are also large and old which adds a nice feel. The dump station is new and well maintained...just make sure you don't drive off the edge. It has a large beach area for the kids to play with a gradual slope into the water. Great for young kids to swim. The day use area can get busy with families from the GTA. Over all it was a good little park.
  • Nice campground to stay at or just get a day pass. Big beach with ample room even when the beach is jam packed in the summer time. The water off the beach remains shallow for a long time making it a great place for kids to swim. Has a covered area for people who reserve it during peak times of the year. It rained when we were their yesterday but we made the most of our day ! Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice family friendly campground.
  • Just a great place to camp get site 30 if u can
  • Super clean, lots of parking space and water is great. Little pebbles at the shore which make it hard to go in the water but once you go further in there is none.
