Camp site is very nice. The beach is small but very pleasant and not over populated. There is another part of the lake where people do cliff jumping ( it is not advisable by the staff, but it is not prohibited) The only real downfall is that there are train tracks very close to the park and we woke up...

My husband and I recently visited this park on a weekend, as we had some events to attend in Parry Sound. I know this park is getting bad reviews based on it's location (close to the highway) and the trains, but really...it's car camping, you're not exactly out in the wild. We do both car camping and portaging, and for... More

I would give this site a 4 except the noisy trains. The kids and I slept through them but not my wife. Site 304 is where we stayed, I would rate it above average privacy and quiet (again minus the trains). We had a tent trailer (24' open) and 10x10 shelter tent and truck on site with room to spare....

The train tracks close to the park bring so much noise that it really ruined the trip. They run all through the night and wake up the kids several times a night. With numerous camping options in the area, it really makes sense to look elsewhere.

I have stayed in this park a few times over the past several years, mostly while driving to some other parks up north or returning home and I never camped for more than two nights. It is located close to Parry Sound and thus is quite popular and can be busy at times. A few years ago we stayed on... More

We have been coming here every year for the past 3 years to have Thanksgiving dinner with my Mom and Dad. Fishing on the the lake by canoe is so peaceful and quiet. We will be back every year.

I have been coming here for over 10 years. Our family loves it.The staffs friendly and they do try to help you. The sites are not that private and some are small,we tow a 32ft trailer so you have to know the park. The sites along the lake are nice but only if you have a small trailer or a... More

Our site here was beautiful. There are a couple of site right along the lake, and there's nothing better than being able to jump in the lake right from your temporary home. (Tip: 129,130,131 and there are few on the other side) Sites however, are pretty close together, and some in the oddest of places which remained empty all weekend.... More

The park itself is nice, love the dog area. The sites are not very private and the noise level is very high. Not to mention the trains that run many times during the night. We were beside a campsite with TONS of kids and people coming in and out. Only one vehicle per site but our neighbours had up to... More

Just came back from Oastler Lake PP and as a first time camper enjoyed my time here. Went with some friends who had experience here and recommended coming there. I appreciated the "comfort" bathrooms that were there. You will need a car here. There is not much to do outside of the beach and canoeing. Port Perry is ten minutes... More
