Good if you can get a waterfront site. Washrooms are older but kept reasonably clean. Showers in a separate building which is quite a walk from some areas of the park. This park is right on the highway and is noisy at night. In the...More

This is a small campground on the shore of Georgian Bay. Nice swimming but bring water shoes/crocs as the beaches are rocky and not sandy. The footwear will give you grip on the smooth rock and help you walk over the not-so-smooth rocks. Some sites...More

We had a breeze all the time we were there. There were a few bugs but that was around 8-9 pm at night. There were a few flies BUT nothing too major.

We recommend making a reservation to avoid disappointment if the park is full. That said, if you arrive and a campsite is available, no advance booking is necessary.
