Stayed here in early September. We stayed in a more remote site, I believe it was Hawk and site 67 or 69, I think 69. It was walking distance to the showers and proper bathrooms as well as equal distance to the outhouses. All other things were a car ride away, like the beaches and trails. There is a one... More

We travelled as a couple to Awenda park from Toronto (the route offering views of the fall colours along the way). Since we booked our site (71) for the last couple nights before the park closed for the season, there were very few groups camping in our campground (Hawk) so it was nice and quiet for the duration of our...

Located North of Midland and Penetanguishene, Awenda Park borders Lake Huron in Georgian Bay. It has a camping ground, beautiful beaches and facilities to accomodate families.

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
