We booked this campsite because of its close proximity to the toilets which are adjacent to the site (I'm pregnant so it was pretty much a must). The campsite was large and private, and the noise at night (which was minimal) was drowned out by...More

No the free parks for Canada's 150 Celebration only pertains to National Parks, not Provincial Parks
Which areas of the beach are less rocky with better sand for kids?

Response from Wendy T | Reviewed this property |
If you want full sand on the beach I would recommend heading to Grand Bend for the day. There were lots of rocks in the Dunes 1 beach but they were small and there were kids still finding some sandy spots to dig and play.
What's the best Riverside campground to camp in for the Halloween weekend? Riverside 1, 2, 3, or 4? Thanks :)

We prefer area 4 all the time. It is a little farther from the beach not like thst will matter in October but just like the sites and privacy better
