My partner and I went to this park for the May long weekend, and frankly, I expected worse. I thought there would be more 'rowdies' and I'm glad to see from personal experience and some of the reviews on this site, that the park is cracking down on noise complaints. Anyway, Awenda is a decent sized park, with good trails... More

The reviews of those annoyed with being told to keep quiet don't surprise me - but this is the treasure of this park. I do not have to listen to other's music nor be kept up at night but can fall asleep peacefully to the sounds of nature. I can count on being supported in my quest to be in... More

I'm sure the park is great in the summer. I chose to visit in the off season as I travel with my dogs and I thought there would be a little more freedom. I was surprised by the cost of $14 to walk trails that were not maintained. I also did not like that I had to use a machine... More

Beautiful park Groomed trails Incredible vistas over Georgian bay islands and some of the park lands encompasses the islands Safe Clean Friendly people Not very busy In winter, there is a parking daily permit or can use annual pass. =. All very inexpensive! There is a wood stove - heated cabin at the main trail entrance. A gem

I have enjoyed both summer and winter in Awenda Provincial Park. The hiking trails and beaches are beautiful and the cross country ski trails are well maintained and fun to ski.

Due to our work schedule we had no choice but to go during the week and that was the biggest mistake we made as it was more family oriented. We were not allowed to talk in a normal voice volume after 9 pm and the security guards asked us to go to sleep!!!!!!, couldnt have a big fire, wasnt allowed... More

Awenda Provincial Park is great in the summer time when it is hot and you need lots of shade. BUT not so good in the fall when it is raining and colder. Well treed for the summer heat means dark and dingy in the fall. It has large sites and good restroom areas including great laundry rooms. But will try... More
