I was a regular day visitor to Wasaga Beach Prov. Park Beach Area 1 for many years until professional circumstances prevented my visiting from 2007 until 2014. I was shocked to see that Beach Area 1 has been almost completely closed off and overgrown with weeds so that "endangered" birds can nest there. Moreover, I was asked to pay $20.00... More

Went on a Friday with my whole family. Beach area 3 is the dog friendly zone. Price of admission was 16 dollars per vehicle. You could feel the quality of the sand as soon as you stepped on it. You could tell that the beach was drag groomed by a tractor every night. Security guy had an atv and ripped... More

40 years later, this is still the best beach. It is immaculate every morning, the beach allows you to travel away from the crowds and still have a great area and swim. The main beach area food places were getting tired, and many were out of business, but it still had good choices for a quick meal and drinks.

Always love time at the beach, unfortunately the weather was not accommodating this year. Always stay at Woodland Hideaway and never disappointed.

Very nice sand and beach. Not exactly a place to go swimming but a great place to float around and enjoy the weather. The water is very shallow for a long ways out but good for just relaxing. Definitely worth the value if you have a provincial parks season pass.

Regardless if you are at the beach for an hour or a full day you pay $20 for parking, too expensive for this beach. The beach is okay for an Ontario beach. The bathrooms were good and somewhat clean.

It was the worst camping grounds I've ever been too. The area is so small that all the campers are crammed in a tiny area. It didn't feel like a camping ground at all. It felt like you were in someone's backyard. The campground is right by the main road so you can hear all the cars and trucks, 24... More

It is a nice and clean beach. not too many people and clean shallow water. If you go further out it get a bit deeper. It is great to chill here on a hot day with friends, family or alone. I recommend to park about 5 min walk away to avoid expensive parking fees right at the beach.
