We travelled across Canada this summer (from mid-June & we're still currently travelling - Sept. 10th!). As I have family in the Toronto & outlying areas, we booked 2 nights in Port Perry at Goreski's (July 12th & 13th, 2012). I checked ahead of time, specifically asking if they were big-rig friendly. Of course, the answer was yes or we would have booked elsewhere! We are a 40' motorhome, 3 slides, tow vehicle - makes us 66' total length.

Imagine our surprise to find out on our arrival that our "big rig friendly site" is actually an uneven piece of lawn with minimal services that backs onto the marina. This RV resort is actually a fulltime trailer park with a few RV sites. But that's not the worst of it!

1st nightmare - We got ourselves situated, and while I appreciate a park with security, this was unbelievable! We've stayed in many RV parks with security - often requiring a key card or code - but this park simply expects you to figure out how to get through the gates yourself. As a result, we were locked out! I ran around until I found someone with a keycard that opened the gates for me. We had been told that, if we got back to the park before about 9 PM, the office staff would open the gates for us. We did that, and returned to a fully-darkened office - not a soul around to let us in to our site!

2nd nightmare - a huge young teen's party at the clubhouse attached to the parking lot of the park. Incredibly loud music, and large groups of teens milling about in the parking lot & throughout the trailer park. VERY intimidating if you're on your own running around trying to find someone to let you in to your RV site! Not to mention, there wasn't anything resembling adult supervision!

3rd nightmare - a large number of permanent residents in the trailer park felt compelled to share the joy as far as loud music went. We went to bed around 11:30 PM to strains of Loverboy from across the street! And I assure you, I could hear every note clearly - even though we shut all the windows & had our TV on!

4th nightmare - This is a ridiculously-expensive park for what you get! We paid $45 & $55 respectively (Thursday & Friday nights) for half the services of other parks - water & 30 amp power only. No sewer, no cable, no wifi. That is THE most expensive "RV park" we've stayed at on this trip, and we make a point of staying in the nicest parks we can find! We stayed at the Brighton KOA on our return trip - 50 amp, water, sewer - for $32 / night.

5th nightmare - Garbage. Everywhere! Floating in mounds in the marina, dropped by lazy people all throughout the trailer park. I pick up after my dog & make a point of putting garbage in the appropriate places. Apparently, I'm one of the few people staying or living there who grasps the concept of cleaning up after myself!

6th - and final - nightmare - Try telling these people about the problems..... clearly, they couldn't have cared less! I emailed them directly and was ignored. I suggested they do as other secure parks do - attach a deposit to a keycard so even temporary visitors (such as RV owners) can access the park. The deposit is returned when you check out & leave the card. I gather they had no interest in my difficulties or my suggestions as they never bothered to respond!

Would I stay here again? Most definitely not! In fact, on our return trip through the area, we opted to stay 30 mins further away at the Brighton KOA rather than deal with the nightmare of Goreski's!

We have been at this park for 8 seasons. We pay the highest fees of any park at $4000- a year. The power and water go off frequently during the season but this labour day weekend was a nightmare. We had no power or water for most of the weekend. All during a heatwave. The management does not communicate anything and is not prepared to rectify the situation. We got new management this year. There is tons of new rules and security now but the service is the worst we've ever received. Cut down on the policing and fix the infrastructure of the park.

We have a small trailer and have been trying out some new parks in the area. Last minute decision to find a site for the may 24 long weekend we ended up here. We paid $170 for the long weekend which we found expensive for the amenities available. The park has a pool and a splash pad for the kids but were not open at the present time. The over night sites are basically a field 20ft x 40ft, not to mention they are backed on to the marina. This is alright for us cause we love to fish but if you love to sleep this is not the sites for you! The boats are very loud when the pull out at 6am. The fire pits are just a hole in the ground with no grill on top. Privacy is next to none and the local trailer Parker's have no regard to your space. We had drunk teenagers at all hours of the night walking down the main road laughing and causing a hell a lot of noise, and not to mention a group of grown adults saying " screw these overnighters, we are the ones who pay our seasonal fees why should we be quiet for them. " The bathrooms are close to the sites but haven't seen a mop in a while. The showers are hot and cost about 50 cents a turn. The in park restaurant has some awesome food and the staff is very friendly. Overall this park would be an option if there's nothing else available but we are still fans of the Ontario provincial park system. We may return in the future but with having very little privacy and shade the summer months will probably be too hot for comfort and I can only imagine when the park is running at full capacity how much trailer park trash will be causing trouble here . But close to Toronto and Durham can't go wrong with location .

We checked in to a clean, cozy and well-equipped cabin (with refrigerator) for one night, for cheaper than what was advertised on website.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Facilities were clean and wonderful park/ play equipment for children, great rec activities and ball courts and lovely pool.
There’s a charming little beach with beautiful, tranquil water - we saw a heron fishing for his dinner. Picturesque and peaceful atmosphere, very relaxed.
No issues with power, in fact the only improvement would be bigger lots. Wish we were staying longer!

This park is incredibly horrible! Every single long weekend the power goes out and no water! Canada day long weekend power was out for 14hrs. They closed all washrooms and pools! Only cooling station was the front office that closed at 7pm leaving many people without a way to cool off. The park has now disabled their Facebook page because of all the complaints!!!

Spend your money elsewhere!!!

We own a trailer in this park, we actually just bought it. Yes there is dances at the main front dance hall, some people can be loud but the park is fantastic, we have young children and they love it! We don't use public showers as we have our own and it's very peaceful around midnight & quiets down ... This up coming long weekend will be our real experience I will be sure to write another review

We went to visit friends who have parked their trailer here for the season. Their permanent site is very nice with a large deck and wooded area behind...leave their sight however, and you are instantly transported into what looks like a scene from Deliverence. We walked past one sight were ther were beer cans strewn all over the sight...i didn't actually think that happened.
The overnight sights are rammed so tightly together you feel like you are camping at a trailer storage facility. They are located on the edge of the marina boat slips where the water is filthy and the sights are covered in goose feces. There is no sewer hookup meaning you can't freely use the water in your trailer and the dump station is stupidly located on the wrong side...on a hill that does not allow you to empty your tanks completely.
Admittedly the pools are nice and the bathrooms are new and clean BUT it's a dollar to run the shower, which, considering it was $200 for 3 nights, is ridiculous. I will most definitely go back to visit friends but will NEVER spend a night there in my own trailer again.

Our second year here and may be our last. Constant power outages and indifferent management at the front office. For 4 k plus a season I expect more. Or a discount on the following year anyways Stay away, its called camping, not a trailer park when these issues are so consistent.

I was at this park for many years and left do to the constant power outages, wells running dry daily and poor septic. Park smells like sewage and the septic beds are weeping through the tops. Power goes out when park is crowded or every long weekend. They ask you not to use your A/C on hot days to conserve power. For the money I don't advise this park. I was at the park again in July 2018 to visit with friends and nothing has changed.

This was our first visit to this park and won't be going back. Constant power outages which also affected the running water. It was the hottest weekend of the year and no air conditioner either. No shaded spots so you roasted. Several people complained and wanted refunds but they don't care and won't refund anything to you. Several people pulled out as they were tired of the outages and lack of support from the park. I was informed by a friend that was there to call and complain as they were given a future 2 night free stay. I am going to call but as for going back the only reason is that is will be free. I have been to several campgrounds around this area like Shelter Valley in Grafton which offer 50 amp service, hydro and sewer for $88.00 for 2 nights. Also one on Cameron Lake that was $88.00 with all the hookup also. This was the most expensive place we have been too and it was crap to say the least. Even the store was more a boating/marine store. We ran short of bottled water which we were told we could buy at the restaurant/bar at a cost of $2.00 per bottle. We chose to drive up the road to a small store and paid $5.00 for a case of 24. We could have gone to Port Perry to the grocery store but why bother. We were here to camp not drive all over the place to get something you would think they would carry. I have heard that the power outages are an ongoing issue and will never go back because of this. They need to use the money they charge from the seasonal and non seasonal people and fix the infrastructure and offer more for the money. On the good side they do have extensive things for the kids to do and fairly clean grounds. That is about it though.
