We camped at Awenda for a night only...we will definitely go back! A little cool but great scenery and hikes!

We visited this past weekend to the park. It was our second visit. Our campsite was in Deer near the comfort station and play area (great for occupying the kids). The campsites are quite nice with very large trees making it shady. There is good distance between the campsites for a little privacy unlike many other parks where you are... More

Came here for a day trip this July. The park is wonderful, beautiful isolated beaches and no crowds. The park has spectacular views of some of the larger islands in that part of Georgian Bay. The park is a real mixing of southern Ontario and northern Ontario. I would highly recommend as a day trip for hiking swimming or relaxing... More

Awenda is a jewel and I cannot recommend it more highly to campers looking for a fabulous "glamping" (glamour+camping) OR slightly more rugged camping experience. We started as a family going to Awenda when our daughter was 3 years of age, and it remains a yearly treat for us twelve years later! Snake and Deer campgrounds are our preferred tenting... More

I've never camped at Awenda because I have always lived close enough to drive whenever I wanted to go so I can't comment on that use. I have always gone for day-use only. There is a lot of walking involved and you have to stay on the trails because there is plenty of poison ivy. The beaches are worth the... More

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
