  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • We love camping here! Very clean park with a lovely beach. You need to book way in advance or get there really early to get the electrical sights but that's not uncommon.
  • 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.
  • A small park for camping. Pros: - Good beach of decent size. - Big swimming area on the beach. - No fear of Bears. - Modern and clean Washrooms. Cons: - Lots of mosquitos, 24 hours a day. Don't forget to bring mosquito repellent cream. - No store in the park. But city isn't far away. - No bike trails. - Too crowded on Saturdays. One bad personal experience: one of the park guard selectively stopped me from unloading cooler and other usual stuff at the beach and asked me to move on. I would be ok, if he had done it for every one, but people before and after me did the same thing uninterrupted. I confronted him, then he said he didn't noticed others... Really???
