We stayed in Cabin 3 , a lovely 3 bedroom cottage. Our friends were in #5. We have also stayed in #2 and #12 during other visits. The staff are friendly and we felt very safe there considering there’s a pandemic out there! Nice place to get away from it all. Lindsay remembered as even after a few years away. Love the fire pits close to each cottage. The sunrise was spectacular! The stars at night are well worth staying up for. Due to Covid they warned us before we went that there would be a few less things( dishes,pots and pans) in the cottage compared to usual and they were very timely answering my other questions. The showers are so clean. Garbage and recycling picked up daily. Wish there were more hooks in the bedrooms. Cabin 5 has some cool upgrades( windows, lights, more hooks and a bathroom sink with a plug!) if you are looking for fancy, crowded and a busy place then don’t pick this one!

We had a lovely week in a four bedroom cottage, taking advantage of the sandy beach, boat and paddle board rentals and playground. The four bedroom cottage has hot and cold running water and a large shower room. Great lake view and steps to the beach. Staff was friendly and helpful.

My first visit here was 1971 (yikes). This past visit was my fourth. While much has changed in the world over the decades, happily this is one spot that remains constant. It's a place l can count on to rest my mind and just feed my eyes with nature, night and day...the night sky is breathtaking and out of reach in the city. The cabins are basic, rustic and perfectly fine. The shower was most welcome, proving that one really can feel like a million bucks with 2 quarters and 10 minutes. Everything is clean and the property is well maintained. Lindsay, and her team are lovely and l appreciated their hard work and conversations. The pileated woodpecker entertained me daily. The location is perfect for accessing all the glorious trails in the area. I love the Bruce and am happy to be able to stay at Miller's Family Camp.

We spent a week in this place 1 with a group of 24 people (4 cabins), a nice place, a location and amenities. We enjoyed the sandy beach, boat rentals and paddle boards.
Unfortunately we did not enjoy the cottage as it needs a lot of upgrades to provide the service they offer on their website.
1. The oven did not work at all (even after one of the staff said they had fixed it),
2. The bathroom had a terrible smell all the time (24 hours a day), we had to make sure to wash it every day, keep the door closed and draw the window curtain to help with ventilation. The smell is due to the broken flush system (one of the staff confirmed this to us about this problem in all the toilets in the cabins and in fact apologized for the inconvenience)
3. The system they have in the sink to wash dishes is not the best. You need two people to wash the dishes, as one person must keep pressing the tap to get water. On the other hand, it is impossible to wash a pot since it is a very small space.
4. Beds and futon are in very poor condition. The mattresses of the beds are completely flat and hard. And the futon in the kitchen was misshapen enough to pretend to sleep on. I knew that the other beds in the other cabins were in the same or worse condition since my friends confirmed the same. In fact, it was necessary to use inflatable mattresses.
I can say that we enjoyed the stay thanks to the company we had but we will not return due to all the inconveniences we had

Hello 216janethz, Thank you for your comments! We value your opinion, as we do hope that our guests have an enjoyable time while staying with us! Our camp has a back-to-basics atmosphere, where campers and cottagers can appreciate the outdoors. The rustic cabins are kept up where and while we can, with replacement toilets and stoves where we need them in the springtime each year. We are currently planning to updated the septic system, which will allow us more water flow for toilets and sinks. Unfortunately, we are unable to change the type of system we have in place until that time. The sink washing system is something that our cottagers have gotten used to, with water to boil and rinse basins to use in conjunction with the sink, (this is something we'd still like to change when the septic system is updated). The mattresses will be evaluated in the cottage you stayed in, as well as the futon. We were not aware that your stove was still malfunctioning after the repairman stopped by to check it. We are sorry you didn't mention it again after the first incident! We are sorry for your inconveniences! Not all guests that stay with us have the same comments, and I think you will agree that the staff is friendly and cooperative, the facilities are clean and the grounds well-groomed to help with a positive experience.

Rustic but perfect for our needs; very much like the way I remember things in the 1960’s. Not far from the lake, affording a great view through the front window. There is running cold water in the kitchen and bathroom but for hot showers you need to walk across the road to the pay showers which really just adds to the ambience of the place

Hello 795bills, Thank you for writing a review! Our cottages are rustic. We put a lot of effort into keeping things clean and tidy. The hot water showers are coin operated (25 cents gives you 5-7 min of water) this stops customers from leaving the water running and filling our septic beds.

We stayed there this september the cabins have no inside doors just a curtain .The walls are not all the way to the ceiling so everything can be heard the water tap has only cold water and you have to hold the tap open with one hand whilst trying to wash with the other no exaggeration you have probably seen thees spring loaded taps around but would not expect to see them in a cabin .The toilets are absolutely disgusting even to me a world traveler.There are no pots or pans in the cabins but there are a few mismatched dishes I asked about this and was told it was because of Covid 19 but the plates and cutlery apparently were OK .The showers are 25c bring lots of Quarters they are also very small like a trailer shower unless you use the family shower.There really is nothing much to see in the area and road trips are dull just trees and very occasional view of the lake. everything at the campsite is way over priced when compared to other nearby camps and facilities we paid over $1000 for 5 nights in the low season september We were also checking out Lions head and found that we could get a spotless cottage with all facility at about the same price right on the lake. the location is nice enough but never again. its one big rip off and the clientele tends to be the inebriated loude kind that keep everyone up all night. My advice is look around can find much better.

Hello Philip, We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your trip to the Bruce Peninsula and to Miller's Family Camp. You are correct our cottages are not fancy. We are not a 4 star resort and don't advertise to be. The cottages are rustic, clean and basic. They only have cold running water except the 4 bedroom cottage which also has hot water and a shower. The spring loaded taps in the cottages are not ideal. Each cottage has its own septic system and it can’t handle the amount of water normal taps would create. We are currently working with the MOE and an engineer to upgrade the cottage septic systems. So we can install better toilets and taps. I am not sure how long you need for a shower but a 25 cent coin lasts 5-7 minutes. We are a quiet family camp, we do have security and someone on site all the time (Day/Night) to deal with issues as they arise. Our quiet hours are from 11pm – 7am, and strictly enforced. If the issue had been brought to our attention we would have dealt with it. I am not sure when or which cottage you stayed in but I think you are exaggerating a bit with the cost. A 3 bedroom cottage with 6 people for 7 nights in the peak of the summer is $1050 plus Hst. In the spring and fall (May 1st to June 27th and Sept 7th to October 8th) there is a 20% discount off our regular summer rates. You are correct when you say there is a lot of trees! If you want to see more beauty you have to get out of your car and hike to the Grotto or to Half Way Log Dump or Devils Monument or to the Lion's Head cliffs. Or jump on a boat out to Flower Pot Island. There is plenty of natural beauty to be seen here. The Northern Bruce Peninsula is known for its outdoor adventures. Hiking, Biking, Boating and Diving.

Rented a seasonal trailer lot for a couple of years during which time there was a change in ownership.New owners are horrible,ungrateful that you are there, there is no customer service, you’re a bother to me them and very rude. They don’t offer hardly any amenities within the campground..lots of unhappy seasonal trailer renters. Do yourself a favour and spend a few extra $$ and rent at the campground down the road. There’s lots of activities inside the campground and staff is there to help and very courteous/helpful.

We, a group of family/friends, stayed in two of the cottages at Miller's Family Camp. This is a family oriented, beautiful and green place in front of the lovely Miller lake. Not too far from Tobermory, just 30 km, and closer (20 km) to the Bruce Peninsula and Singing Sands National parks.
Although we were hit by storms, lots of rain and loss of electricity, they did their best to make it tolerable. We also had clogged drains, and they tried hard to fix it in a timely manner on a Sunday! they have a nice beach on the lake and all sorts of water crafts to rent.
The hospitality and service is as good as the scenery there; however, the place is a bit on the old side. So if you are used to 5 star hotel rooms, you may need to look at the pictures on their website.

We have been coming here for 10 years. We LOVE how rustic it is. It’s nice to slow down and just enjoy nature- from the calm lake in the morning, the sounds of the loons, the sunrise and sunset. No hot running water is no big deal to us. It’s back to basics with no dishwasher ,ice maker etc etc. it takes a bit of planning but it’s all very manageable. We love the people in the office and they are ALWAYS willing to answer any questions or address any concerns. The cottages are far from fancy but we knew that going in. If you want matching furniture, dishes and cutlery this is not the place for you. I hear hotel chains have all of the matching stuff! 😜 The management is always very quick to answer emails. Love how you can pay with etransfer. The 25 cent shower is the best! Always plenty of hot water! We love our visits here. Stay away if you want fancy. Everything is as posted in their pictures . There’s wifi by the office. Love taking my own sheets! Loved chatting with Lindsay about the history of the family camp.

Beautiful, quiet and very clean. Beds were comfortable, Lindsay was awesome to deal with. We used this as a base to explore different sections of the Bruce Trail, excellent location if you’re looking to hike Lions Head, the Grotto and check out Tobermory.
