“Average Provincial Park”

Darlington Provincial Park
Ranked #3 of 8 things to do in Courtice
Attraction details
Reviewed February 2, 2018

We used this park for breaking in our tent trailer, since it is very close to our home. The park is fine, but there is not a lot to do if the weather is unco-operative. We went and it was cold and raining, in the summer, so it was not a lot of fun. If you enjoy fishing this is probably a satisfactory park.

We tried to have a picnic at the parks Picnic area 2 on Sunday afternoon.(before 3pm). Then we found a big problem was ALL WASHROOM were locked. There was no public washroom available on Sunday afternoon in the picnic areas. The washroom right beside the picnic area was locked. We drove to the park store, the main office to find one, they were all locked as well. Then we drove all the way back to the park entrance where has a washroom, it was locked too.

Weekends are popular days for the families to visit and use the provincial park, I don't understand what is the plan to lock and close all the washrooms during the weekend days in the day use and picnic areas. You still charge admission permit to enter the park, but you close all the washrooms. That is ridiculous.

On the way trying to find an opened washroom, we met another couple and two ladies who were also trying to find washrooms. Also, there is no close by stores/business for you to use washrooms, outside the park is the nuclear energy site. To find a washroom, you have to leave the park, get back on highway 401 and drove back to the closest city to find a store to use washroom.

Very bad experience. BTW, no staffs onsite to offer any information or help

We were pleasantly surprised to be able to book this campsite the same week. The park is well kept, washrooms and showers were clean. We loved how close to the water we could be at short notice. Love the radio free area so not to have to deal with partiers. Will definitely be back.

The campground is very close to oshawa - which is a 10 minute drive.
The campsites are well kept and the campground facilities are decent - its a nice campground for a family/friends weekend trip close to the city.

42 dollars for camping whose toilets and showers are absolutely disgusting. The trains passing continuously and sounding their horn all night. People yelling and playing music until 2:30 am. The person at the front desk barely smiles and does his job to the minimum. I strongly disagree with this place.
