I visited Awenda Provincial Park on my 13 day long trip to Canada this summer. Following our stay at a fancy Air B&B in Collingwood, ON, it was time to go back to the wilderness. Hearing nice things, we decided to check out Awenda Provincial Park on the Georgian Bay. Once there, we found it a bit hard to pick... More

This is an older provincial park so the sites themselves are pretty big. The trees are old growth and tall. While the trees aren't dense, and you can see through to the next site, it's not bad at all because there's so much space between the sites and the trees themselves break up a lot of the view. There are... More

This was our second time camping in this park and we loved it both times. It is a beautiful park with lots of trees. Beach 1 was very crowded this year but the water was still enjoyable.

We camped for a week at Awenda with our two kids under 5 and loved it! Pros - spacious private site in Wolfe campground - clean comfort stations - many beaches to explore - good trails, although short on average - good activities near by (Discovery Habour, Sainte Marie Among the Hurons, both historic sites that our young kids loved)...

Went here with 2 other couples besides myself and my boyfriend, it is a very beautiful park with tonnes of greenery. Lots of shade always because of the tree canopy. Its great because it protects you from the rain a lot as well! Very minimal bugs, lots of chipmunks, and one very friendly deer lol I went into the bluff... More

This was my first time at Awenda and I was pleasantly surprised with how quiet the park was. We lucked out in booking our site in a radio and dog free area. (Snake) The comfort station was clean, not busy and the water in the shower was wonderfully warm. The camping sites were quite private with lots of tree coverage.... More

We booked Awenda with another family that we have camped with many times at various provincial parks. Upon arrival we were told we would need an additional site because the 6 person limit is STRICTLY enforced (we were 4 adults and 3 children.). The attendant at registration was rude and unhelpful. We asked to speak with a warden since we... More

We just got back yesterday from Awenda. We had a great time! We stayed from Thursday to Sunday at site 131 in the Bear section. I liked the Bear section because it was not as heavily wooded as the other sections we saw. Our site was right across from the Privies which worked really well for us because we like... More

We stayed 3 nights in the bear campground. We enjoyed the time a lot away from the party place. The place is very clean, the staff is great. Good place to enjoy the time off.
