Lovely beach, lots of white sand and you can walk out forever. We spent a few hours here enjoying the sunshine, swimming and having fun in the sand. I would recommend this beach to any family.

Soft sand, At least half a mile of shallow water. great for little kids. Beach 1 is where the restaurants, stores, ice cream shops are off the boardwalk. the other beaches 2-5 are located off shore. Parking can range from $10 and above. On a slow day parking can go down to $5. Would definitely go here again.

We visited Wasaga Beach on a Tuesday and it was busy. We went to Beach #2 via Mosely St. It is less crowded with washrooms and cheaper parking. We parked across the road at Beach Motel #2 for $5 for the day. I think they charge more on the weekends. A short walk threw the Provincial Park and you have... More

The beach is large and open. The annual "Wasago under Siege" re-enactment was in progress with 1812 era troops, cannons, musketry, tall ships, etc. Very exciting!

......Wasage Beach is a little too commercialized for our tastes.... We preferred Sauble Beach, about 2 hours west, along the Lake Huron shore... Nevertheless, the beach itself is still top-notch, in my view. This review gets only a 3 because the beach itself deserves a 4, but the commercialization of the central beach, the higher level of trash (not a... More

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.
