This was a beautiful, quiet park. The entire park was extremely clean, staff were friendly, campsites were very private, and everyone was extremely considerate of their neighbours! I would recomend it in a heartbeat!

While living in the small town of Penetang it is nice to have a place to go close by just to take a little break from life. Strolling on the many trails of Awenda grounds you. There's a peacefulness when sitting by the lake side on the dock or on the benches located along the trails. So many beautiful views... More

Our original plan was to stay in Wasaga Beach, but we decided to keep going and check out Awenda. We're glad we did. We stayed from Wednesday 'till Friday in the Snake (radio/pet free) campground. The peace and quiet was great, with the exception of one idiot who figured everyone would appreciate his "WOO HOO" at 2 am, but as... More

Just finished unloading the car after another fantastic week in Awenda. For the past three years we (family of four) have finished off our summer with a week in this great park. It's a 4 hour drive for us but it's one we're willing make. We stay in Turtle and love the room and privacy of the campsites. The washrooms/showers... More

The great thing about this park as many reviewers have mentioned is it's close proximity to Toronto, and how easy it is to drive to. It was only an hour an a half drive home with no traffic. When you get there you check in, buy your firewood (I bought 1 bag of kindling and 1 bag of wood for... More

Situated only about an hour and a half from Toronto on beautiful Georgian Bay, Awenda has something for everyone, whether you plan to camp or just take a day trip. We rented a cottage at nearby Thunder Beach (10 minute drive) and came to the park for the day ($14 day pass). Even just driving into the park o the... More

Visited Awenda Provincial Park for 3 days and 2 nights at the end of August. Main attraction is that this is a beautiful park not too far from Toronto. The first thing you do when you visit the park is to register at the park office. Remember you are NOT allowed to bring in outside wood to burn so you... More

A great thing about this park is that it's only two hours north of Toronto. We were able to leave home at a decent time and arrive at a decent time to set up. The comfort stations were the cleanest I've experienced in a Provincial Park! I could of walked in without flipflops and had no worries. Mosquitos were moderate... More

A park close by with something for everyone. Dunes,beaches,trails,fishing, kayaking. It's on Georgian Bay so there are some wonderful beaches...2 for people and 2 for dogs. Beach 4 is the best but a longer walk for the little ones. Kettle's Lake is in the interior so safer for kayaking/canoeing when it is windy. The only con about the park is... More
