“Wonderful campgrounds”

Halfway Lake Provincial Park
Ranked #14 of 62 things to do in Sudbury
Attraction details
Reviewed September 12, 2017

We travelled here for the first time this year, and loved it. The beach was nice and close (within walking distance), the store was fully functioning (so if you run out of milk, they have it!). The staff were friendly and good with the kids. The grounds were well kept, and the lots were good size. We'll come back again for sure. The only complaint that we had was the sign's on the Highway ... we were travelling from the East, and the signs for the park were non-existent. We had to drive till we found a place to turn around (which is very difficult when you're pulling a 30 foot trailer!).

The park is nice an offers a getaway but it depends on what you are looking for in a getaway. The campsites are, for the most part, ample and well laid out. The kids playground and beach appears to be nice. Fishing in Halfway Lake appears to be good and the lake across rte. 144 is often ignored but may actually be better. The hiking trails are gradually being resurrected from storm damage. However the canoe portage trails have long been ignored so canoeing into the backcountry is a real challenge. In years past I was part of a group which marked, cleared and built access areas. Storms undid our work and the park lacks the financial and personnel to reopen these trails. Be prepared to provide your own amusement and your own activities. Now this later is great for families and individuals who really want to get away. There is cell phone service. The downside may be your neighbors. In my case, over the Labor Day weekend, my neighbors were boisterous and inconsiderate late into the night and early the following morning. I believe the later not to be a common experience.

We spent a week here with our family. We have young kids and we loved how big and shallow the beach was. Perfect for playing in the sand and swimming. We also loved that there was a playground. We hiked two of the trails which were challenging but fun. We stayed in Wild Rose. The bathrooms are really spread out, but we were able to find a couple short cuts that made it better. You can also hear the trucks from the highway. We were in site 25. We enjoyed biking to the store and the playground. I hadn't been to this park since 2003. Amazing how much different it looks! There is an excellent interpretive centre which is great for the kids. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our visit here and we will be back for sure!

Nice large sites with plenty of trees and greenery in between. The camp store is packed with lots of your camping needs because we all forget that one thing.

This provincial park is easily on par with any of the big parks like Grundy and Arrowhead. The drive from southern Ontario is easy and well marked and very good quality drive. The first impression of any park is it's staff and their staff were positivs and helpful. The trailer services are easily accessible. The store has the staples but a bit pricey but that is expected. We always review all the sites for ones we would pick and this park it was easy. They are all great sites even those that were affected by the storm in 2002. The beachs are large with huge swimming areas. Water is clear. Fishing is good in all of the lakrs . Boat launch facility is easy to access and fish cleaning shack is clean and well maintained. The hiking trails are excellent quality. Next time we visit we will definitely be getting to bailey lake.
