A peaceful walk in the woods. Seeing dragonflies along the boardwalk. Viewing beautiful Kettle's Lake. These are all experiences that one should not miss if they visit Awenda Provincial Park, whether they are camping there for a few days or are just visiting for a few hours. The Wendat Trail is located at the eastern end of the park and... More

I first went here when it opened and have been back numerous times. The camp sites are a good size. They have good and clean washroom facilities. They also have a small store and firewood you can buy. There are numerous trails to hike or just walk along the beach on both sides of the point. Very scenic. I always... More

Our family had a great time at Awenda. This was our second trip, and we stayed in the dog and radio-free part of the park, which was great as dogs tend to ruin the quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The park has a lot to offer, including canoeing, and several beaches. If you like to explore, you can walk to the... More

Awesome park! Stayed 5 nights with our 2 kids (7&9) and had a great time! Park and bathrooms are very clean and well kept. Beaches are not over crowded. Sites are large and pretty spread out, we had no problem finding room for our large tent, dining tent and truck. Kids enjoyed the guided nature hike and craft. It was... More

What an amazing provincial park. I really enjoyed my campsite. It had enough seclusion but also close enough you can make friends. The restroom areas are clean and we'll maintained. The beach is nice and has a few different sections. Firewood is for sale on site for a reasonable price. Staff was great and very helpful.

Great trails, and many choices from very easy to moderate, and varying in length from a kilometer or so to 13 kilometers. Lots of choice. The campsites are well spaced for privacy and offer no radio and/or no pets areas. Some areas could do with a bit of work. The picnic tables for example are beginning to grow moss so... More

It is a very long drive in off the main road to get to the registration building. Thankfully there is an express line on weekends for day passes only so you don't get delayed behind people buying campsites- bring cash and you'll be completed in minutes. Lots of parking near the beach areas 1 & 2. Beaches 3 & 4... More

Beautiful sandy beaches on Georgian bay. Not to crowded and somewhat secluded. This provincial park is a must for someone who loves sun and sand without the crowds.

This park is huge and very nicely organized. There is plenty of parking very close to the beach, clear signs and it is all very clean.
