Gordon's Park was everything we had expected and more...The park itself is spectacular, we stayed in one of the teepee's and had a great time. With 3 adults in the teepee there was plenty of room to spare. We took advantage of the wolf howl which was lead by first timer Anna, she was amazing. She had a lot of knowledge about wolves and also added a few fun facts about the park and other wildlife in and around Gordon's Park. Comfort stations were perfect, flush toilets and eco showers. We liked that they also provided a common area where pots\pans were provided and there was a BBQ and grill, in case you may have forgotten your own or didn't want to lug around heavy cooking items. Hiking trails and the Dark Sky preserve are a few fun things to do at the park. Overall experience at Gordon's park was fantastic and would recommend a stay there. Got to spend a few hours in the pool talking to Rita, who had so much knowledge of the island and all that Manitoulin is about.

Thanks so much for an awesome experience.

I booked 2 campsites for 4 nights over the Canada Day weekend. I'd never been to the island so didn't know what to expect, but Gordon's Park was PERFECT. Our campsites were only 2 min from showers and bathrooms but felt very secluded and private which is exactly what we wanted. The trails behind the campsites were fun and looking at the stars was incredible. The staff were all very helpful for newcomers like us and very knowledgeable. Next time will definitely visit their Dark Sky Preserve!

Room Tip: Many different types of campsites (including tipi camping) so just ask the owners what kinds of sites you prefer.

We stayed in a "Bunnie" which is a small basic cabin with two bunk beds and and a fold out full bed. Basic camp style thin mattresses on a board. Not fancy, but clean, dry and reasonably priced. They have a nice little store, and free Wi-Fi and a phone charging area. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Right from the very welcoming check in to the 'never want to leave' goodbye, we loved our stay at Gordon's Park! Not only are the staff friendly beyond belief, the surrounding environment and night sky was beautiful. We stayed over an early May week, so it was a little chilly at night trying to star gaze, however, nothing a sleeping bag can't solve! Besides, my fiance said 'Yes' under the cool night sky! :) The clean stargazing Cabin was perfect for us and had working lamps, plenty of water and a great view. On site hikes were great (we'd recommend bug spray!) and the showers and bathrooms were all clean. We will definitely be back, hopefully to see the progress/completion of the lake restoration! Thanks again!

We went for the Peresids (?) star party in 2015. The owners were very friendly and the star party was fun. There were plenty of telescopes with enthusiastic owners who loved to show them to the curious. Educational and fun. I would go this year if it wasn't for a scheduling conflict. I can't say much about the accommodations as we were just there for the day. It looks well equipped with a pool and mini golf.
