I was pleasantly surprised there were still lake-side campsites available on short notice. Although I was a little concerned about the train noise I tend to sleep soundly and can fall asleep again quickly after briefly waking so I wasn't too worried. While the trains...More

I'd have to say overall, it was a great trip but only because my friends and I made it fun. The train was the biggest issue, and yes I know there are warnings posted about this- but you wouldn't think it would go alllllllll night...More

Aside from the obvious pluses of Muskoka, the lake and canoe rental, here are the minuses: • Small park, not much to do or places to hike. • Camp store also pretty small. Warning: NO ICE CREAM! • You might run into a water snake. • THAT TRAIN!...More
