the water is pristine, the beach is sandy, the sun shines overhead, what a great place to take the family and play! Though we did not stay at this campground, it looks super.

Love the waves that this lake has. The kids and adults love to play in the waves. Great playground for kids and their is a hidden gem to find on the other side of the really tall railroad tracks.

The beaches are clean. You have many options of beaches to go on. Bathrooms are clean. They even have a dog beach which was very clean.

My two boys and myself spent a weekend at Windy Lake with friends. It was a very nice excursion for us, and not too far as we live in Sudbury, ON. The camping sites are private, which is wonderful! The park is well treed, with lots of shade if needed. Showers and bathrooms were clean and well maintained (the main... More

My family and I travelled to Windy Provincial park for 2 days of Yurt Camping. Affordable and relaxing. We enjoyed the park very much. Lots of things for the kids to play on and an awesome beach. Very clean and nice deep blue water.

I like this location as it's quiet, they have a dog beach (it's far from the regular beach). The beach is a ways from the campground but you can walk the trails to get there. The lots are really big and they have water and hydro available.

Camping at windy lake is a nice experience. Staff is pleasant and have the services you need. The only thing I did not like was the beach areas. I find the sand has a lot of garbage and debris in it.

Nice park situated on Windy Lake near Levack. We have been camping here for 40 years. It is very convenient but getting too expensive
