I kayaked on the bay and then went for a swim in the lake. The bay was calm, and I even saw a pair of swans with their young, although I gave them a lot of room to avoid upsetting them. The lake is warming...More

We go here about 5-10 times in the summer and it’s great for having space between fellow beach-goers. Unlike Sandbanks, people don’t travel from larger cities like Kingston & Toronto nearly as much. Mostly just locals. The water is usually clean, although sometimes gets algae...More

Well maintained like most provincial parks that I have been to. The beach options were nice, we opted for the bay rather than the lake. We were sad that the flood waters limited the available beach space, but nature does as it wishes. We will...More

I have written a review on North beach before and in general it is a good beach to visit. Unfortunately this year (summer 2017) because of flooding from excessive rain and high water levels the beach is eroded. I contacted someone from the county and...More

I'm not sure I want to share this wonderful beach with others, it is the little sister to Sandbanks provincial park but deserves to be noticed! A long strip of white sand - for us huge waves and warm water! There 5 other people on...More

This beach is really stunning. It wasn't too busy while we were there and the water was very clean and warm. Our children loved it there.....

It was a hot day, but still lots of parking and beach space for everyone. It has very limited shade, so people were crowding under tiny trees, or else brought their own sun tents. It is $14.50 per car to enter, a great deal for...More

Price tag to park is a bit steep, but if it's just one or two people, park on the street outside and walk in for $2pp. Beach was great, shallow water with baby waves, warm, sand....really it's just like being back home in our local...More

If you like toilets that are stinky holes in the ground, this is the place for you. In case you were wondering, it gets even worse in the heat :(

Check the Ontario Parks website under Frequently Asked Questions under the heading, 'Dogs/Pets'. The short answer seems to be no dogs on the beach at North Beach. Sandbanks seems to allow dogs, but it would be best to... More
