Gordon’s Park Eco Resort, on Manitoulin Island, is a unique outdoor destination. They are a recipient of the Attractions Canada Award, as well as being named the 2015 Campground of the Year (small category) by Camping in Ontario. Gordon’s Park is also a Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (R.A.S.C) designated Dark Sky Preserve and a top destination for astronomers and star-gazers from Canada and around the world. The stars were amazing. The night was bug free and even warm. This campground offers a lot of different kinds of camping, tipi tenting, a stargazing cabin, wilderness campsites, camping cabins, and even a bed & breakfast. They have a nature interpretive centre, solar heated swimming pool, 18 hole mini putt, and even archery. The RASC designated this place a dark sky preserve
Disappointments were the Internet Access, it was touch and go and Overnight guests had to pay a fee to use the pool!
Overall experience though was very good.
