What a beautiful lake and we really enjoyed the trip there, so quiet and peaceful. It would be nice to just sit out there and watch the world go by.

A very nice cruise around the lake one afternoon. They offered a 2 for 1 on Wednesday!! Was a bit disappointed in their beer selection, when they only had Coors but had a big ad for Flying Monkey a craft beer! Tour was informative of the area shore line.

I stayed on a small island, uninhabited on a permanent basis (well, we don't know that for sure, do we?), in Lake Simcoe in 2011 during a three-week stay in Toronto. Lake Simcoe was definitely a place to relax, almost away from civilization - the trip via a little boat from the port onto the island was basic and peaceful,... More

Our annual fishing trip is always on lake simcoe. The kids love the boat ride, live bait, catching & throwing back the fish, BBQ and icecream of coarse. Nothing beats the scenery and fresh air.

the actual campground sites are very decent. the park itself is best used if you just want to kick back and relax. there's only one trail, i think, for hiking. and the first time we went, the sibbald house/museum was interesting to visit. beaches get packed fast due to a lot of daytime users from the towns/cities close by. what...

My young family 1 and 3 year olds have camped at Sibbald for 4 years now. We always come up with several other families and camp near each other. I have heard horror stories of poor campers stuck in the Radio Allowed zones or the electric serviced sites, since the teenage morons can't camp without electricity or music. Stay away... More

We deicided to come here on Sunday and we expected quite a crowd in this park as per past experiences. We came early at 9:30 AM, it's only 45 minutes drive from Markham. And there are already a good number of people at that time, mostly to get the best/desired spot in the beach. The park store sells items for... More

The site we stayed at was nice and spacious (non-electric) - there's a lot of space between the sites, didn't even see our neighbours (only those across road from us) to our left/right. The beach was PACKED! We went around 3:30PM and literally only stayed for 10-15 minutes because it was overcrowded and nowhere to sit on the beach itself.... More
