“Great Campground with Not-So-Great Swimming”

Emily Provincial Park
Attraction details
Reviewed 31 March 2017

We stayed in a camping trailer and loved our campsite in the Circle Campground. We thought our site was private and the closest bathrooms were kept very clean with lots of hot water in the showers. The park was clean, quiet, and great to bike around but we wished the other trail was open. We rented a paddle boat and once we got away from the weeds had a wonderful time on the river. The only downside to this park was the swimming. The beaches are nice but there were always wild birds and a lot of weeds on the north beach and the south beach was closed due to bacteria levels.

This park has everything you need; literally. Not only do they have showers, bathrooms, campsites, and swimming areas? They also have a general store, a rental area (for paddle boats, canoes and the like,) but they also have areas for those interested in fishing; you can even bring your own boat to use in the National Park! The great thing about the location of the park is that there isn't any light pollution, which means you can indeed see the milky way, shooting stars, and take in the wonderful sights and sounds that nature has to hold. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone who is looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city!

We had a great time at Emily park! It's close enough to Peterborough that you can drive there for food and activities but it also has a great woodsy atmosphere. The camp sites were huge and also private! We had a full sized camper that slept 8 and we still had room for a truck, another vehicle, a tent, the provided picnic table and a fire pit. We were there during a tornado warning and severe thunder storm but still had a great time! Our camper had a awning so we sat under it during the rain to enjoy the outdoors. The campsite was quiet at night and the other campers were really nice. During the tornado warning a fellow camper came by to warn us of the severe weather coming our way which was so kind. Great family environment for sure, there are playgrounds for kids, places to ride bikes, a beach and rentals on the water. We went paddle boating which we would not recommend because of how difficult it was to maneuver around the water, but we still had fun. Overall it was a great campsite and a fun experience!
