This park is beautiful. The trees are old, large and bigger than life. The beach is lovely; although cold water, my golden retriever loved the freedom to swim on a private pet beach without crowds of people to compete. This park has great hiking paths, and we had the privilege of spotting a white tail deer and a great many... More

My family (husband and I traveled with 2 kids ages 6 and 7) visited Awenda using a day pass. We enjoyed the clean, beautiful beach and easy Beaver pond trail. Next time we will try the canoe rentals at Kettle Lake.

The campsites are fine and the facilities excellent but we could not walk to the waterfront...had to take our car. Beach is a bit stony in places but otherwise a relaxing place to be.

For the past 30+ years this provincial park has done a great job of balancing a relatively large number of visitors given the size of the park and the natural habitat. For "campers" the size and privacy of the campgrounds should be very impressive. The trails are great, and the birdlife is very good for the amateur ornithologists. A highlight... More

Very Beautiful beach, the water was cold but after your first dip it was all bearable. Depending on which beach you are going you have to have a Dolly to tug all your stuff down to beach number 3 or 4. There was no internet signal, so don't expect to surf the net. Just enjoy the beach, sunshine and the... More

We recently took 2 kids and our dog overnight camping at Awenda. We camped in our Volkswagon van at a dog friendly, radio free site in the Hawk area. We were so impressed at the size of the sites, they are nicely spread out for privacy. The washrooms are so close by and have running water! Very clean. Once we... More

I stayed at Awenda this past weekend (June 6/7, 2014). I have been camping a lot - but Awenda is by far my favourite. It was so private and felt like you were in the wilderness. If you get the right campsite, you can't even see your neighbours! (We got lucky in that department). The washrooms are fairly clean, and... More

went here with my daughter to do the beach bike trail. Was great trail, well groomed, washrooms along the trail, not too hard for our 7 year old but not like riding in city either. Highly recommend.

I spent last Sunday afternoon at Awenda Provincial Park and had a fabulous time. I decided to get a year's pass so that I can return to Awenda anytime - it is just that gorgeous. The woods are intoxicating and the beaches are sublime. If you are in the area I highly recommend a visit to this treasure- bring a... More
