Only stayed one night ,looked like there was lots to see and do but we didn't have the time , we arrived late and had to catch the early ferry. Campgrounds were clean and well laid out. we stayed in a tipi which was great . campsite came with 4 muskoka chairs and a picnic table.

We were not disappointed with our stay at Gordon's park! The purpose of our stay was for the dark sky preserve, the darkest in Ontario and even though most of our 2 night stay it was cloudy we did catch a small glimpse of the sky early the first night and we still loved our stay at the park!

We loved the Eco-friendly aspects of the park, recycling, eco-showers, compost pile etc and the hiking trails were fun to walk around during the day.

Loved the signage they have around explaining the different types of trees and fossils in the area. The staff was super friendly and the items in the front office for sale are definitely worth checking out as well. Lots of activities and things to do for families or couples alike including mini put and a pool.

We look forward to our next stay at Gordon's park in the near future.

Thank you so much for enjoying our park. It has definitely been a labour of love for Terry and I over the last 26 years when we began the journey from an empty field to a campground and eco park. So glad you shared your stay with us and took the time to write this review. Thank you very much and also for the praise for our staff, we consider ourselves blessed to have these amazing persons taking care of us and our park. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

We loved it here. It was quiet and the dark skies and stars were amazing. The park was quaint with a lot of added touches we had never seen before. Clothes lines were on each campsite. The campsite numbers were all hand made with a picture and a quote. There were solar lights on darker campsites. The firewood came with newspaper. All these little added features made us feel welcomed and that they cared for there campers. The summer kitchen was awesome. We did not have to bring our pots and pans and BBQ and we could wash our dishes right there. We did the Mother nature trail, where the trees were labeled with a little history of the tree. It is a great place to camp while you explore the rest of Manitoulin Island.

Peaceful, dark zone sanctuary, Sky gazing!
Perfect for us to relax. Not very busy during the week. Staff were friendly. Spent our days at local beaches, and other tourist attractions. The evenings and nights were quiet. Had to pay extra to use the pool, mini golf, etc.

Thank you for your review, glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet of our park. The stargazing is definitely amazing and we are glad you got to see it as so many in the cities have forgotten what the Milky Way looks like. It is true we do charge for the pool and mini golf but we do not charge for our Nature Interpretive Center and educational Hiking Trails and provide a free recharging station for cell phones, etc., a summer kitchen with a BBQ, and free WIFI. We give people the option to create their own package based on their interests. Again, thanks for your review, we appreciate your time completing it on our behalf.

I stayed at Gordon's Park for 1 night with 3 girlfriends. We loved it! The property was beautiful, serene and very clean. I was pleasantly surprised to find flush toilets and hot shower facilities. We stayed in a tipi and that was quite an adventure. The tipi was clean, spacious and comfortable. The only issue we had is that a tonne of moths got in and so we had a very hard time sleeping. Our fault for leaving the light on! What do we know? It was all our first time camping!
We did the night howl hike and spent the rest of the night looking at the amazing night sky! We do not get to experience that many stars in the city! There was a cell phone charging station available to all campers, bbq & sink facilities and a pool.
I highly recommend Gordon's Park for the seasoned and novice camper. We loved our time on Manitoulin Island!

Thank so much for the excellent review, glad you and your friends got to enjoy our tipi tenting experience and creating some valuable memories. We hope to see you again in the future, perhaps in a tree house if we ever get it built, lol:)
