  • I decided to spend one night in this park because I was too tired to continue driving to Toronto. The park was almost deserted, the office was closed and I quickly drove to campsite number 132, where ...  more »
  • This is a lovely campground on a lovely lake. We camped there on a Sunday, Monday, leaving Tuesday. The trains ran all night long on Sunday in both directions and they blew their horn each time - long...  more »

  • So beautiful! There is an active bear but it's only a small black bear. The train sound is not bad at all; if you are an extremely light sleeper I would suggest picking a campground on the point! The walk in campsites are very quiet and much more private. Washrooms are clean.
  • Impossible to sleep! Trains pass throughout the night and so close the ground shakes. Oastler drive is also busy just adding to the noise. Too bad because it is a beautiful park.
  • Trains sounding off on the hour every hour throughout the night. Tried the place twice on different years. Same result. No sleep. Also be warned. Leeches in the lake.
  • We camped during the wicked storm on July 7th that shut the campground down. For as nerve-wracking and unsettling as the entire experience was, the one thing that surprised me the most was how wonderful and attentive the staff here were. The staff were out immediately checking in on every one, multiple times throughout the night we'd have someone come by to make sure we were alright. We could hear the chainsaws going all night making way for us to leave safely in the morning. Come morning, I could only imagine how exhausted they all must've been (I know we were after sleeping in our car all night!) But all the staff members were very polite and helpful. I'm sure they were tired of answering the same questions over and over again and repeating themselves to all of the campers, but not once did they let you know that! Upon exiting the park, they had someone station there to take down all our information to ensure everyone got out safely. Needless to say, I am very impressed by how well the staff here handled such a tragic event.
  • i've camped here a few times and always enjoy coming back, great little park with amazing views clean facilities and a nice little beach. lots of wildlife in the park including black bears, keep your campsite tidy and you wont have any issues
