  • This is a must-visit spot if you are in the area. Bring your camera phone and shoot some slow-motion videos of you and yours jumping off the cliff and "pouffing" into the sand. It's like mogul skiing ...  more »

  • Not what I remember as a child but nothing stays the same forever, still a nice clean place to take your family, no litter, clean beaches, fairly clean bathrooms, I mean it's a beach your going to have sand everywhere, parking is pretty close to the beach where we were. A enjoyable time for everyone. Parking was I think about $17-18 not bad for a whole day and to be close to the beach.
  • Bathrooms near each campsite & showers. Firewood for sale at entrance also near by out of camp grounds at local store & road side stands. Gorgeous beaches near by with very fine grain sand. Also there's a animal allowed beach as well as non allowed ones
  • Beautiful all Sandy beaches in Ontario. A great place to go hiking or camp for a few days with the family.
  • Car camping is great in this park. The sand is white and soft and plentiful. Sand bars run along the beach allowing you to walk a fair distance before entering deeper water.
  • The place is amazing for a family with trailer parking and cottage rearking you can ride your bike and there are public showers after the beach the beach is very nice with a great veiw at sunset.
