If you are looking for a sandy beach clean and close to Toronto I suggest this park.It has $14 entrance fee but you get lots of services. There are camping ground for extra charge.

This is a good place to go and near by from Toronto. Except nuclear plant, it's good to go for day visit and camping. Very quite and relaxing site. I'll go again.

Hilltop is best for shade & privacy and the sites in the 240 -250 sites are big. Just go on website click on campground map & most sites have pictures.
