Dropped into Gordon's Park while visiting Manitoulin Island to play a round of Mini Putt golf. The course, and Park, are located on Hwy 6 in the Town of Tehkummah just outside of South Baymouth.

The Mini Putt cost $35 for a family of four. The course is in a small forest located near the parking lot. It was good fun!

We did not stay at Gordon's Park so I am unable to comment on any of the Park facilities beyond the Gift Shop, Mini Putt and the washrooms/change rooms.

The young lady at the Gift shop was friendly and polite. The washrooms were not the cleanest.

All in all, would recommend the Mini Putt at Gordon's Park.

Good Morning, thank you for your review of our mini putt and park. We are very fussy about our washrooms and clean them several times a day so we are very surprised to read your comments, however we have had the busiest summer in our 26 years of business and are stretched to the maximum to maintain all our facilities in the park. It is not often that people take the time to review the mini putt. We did build it in the midst of a cedar grove so it is shaded and people love that. It is also different as in that you putt through tree trunks, around rocks and under the ground. Since it is in among the trees we have to blow the fairways every morning which we would not have to do if it was in the open same as most mini putts in the city. Have a great summer and fall!

Clean, nice playground but checkout is early (10:00am) and I agree with some previous comments that paying to use the pool seems a bit much as the cost is more expensive than community centre pools. However, we had a spacious and quite site and the staff and grounds were lovely.

Hi Diana, thank you for the trip advisor review, we always appreciate positive feedback. We allow customers to make their own packages based on the amount of time they have, their interests, and weather factors. While we do not include the pool in the basics of booking a campground we do include our nature interpretive center, educational hiking trails, summer kitchen with BBQ, picnic shelter and free WIFI, all available to our guests at all times. We cannot include the pool or the mini putt or we would have to increase the camping and accommodations rates to reflect these additional services and not all people would be interested to pay more, especially if they do not want to swim, cannot afford it or the weather is bad etc. We do however only ask persons to pay once and then they get to enjoy unlimited use for the duration of their stay which then typically amounts to pretty much no cost. We have analized this many times as a management team and feel this is the best approach we can take while offering services that people can pick and choose from. I'm glad you had a chance to meet our staff and to enjoy our spacious and forested sites. I'm also glad you family was able to enjoy the playground and our park.

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.
