Beautiful park Groomed trails Incredible vistas over Georgian bay islands and some of the park lands encompasses the islands Safe Clean Friendly people Not very busy In winter, there is a parking daily permit or can use annual pass. =. All very inexpensive! There is a wood stove - heated cabin at the main trail entrance. A gem

I have enjoyed both summer and winter in Awenda Provincial Park. The hiking trails and beaches are beautiful and the cross country ski trails are well maintained and fun to ski.

We were not allowed to talk in a normal voice volume after 9 pm and the security guards asked us to go to sleep!!!!!!, couldnt have a big fire, wasnt allowed... More

Awenda Provincial Park is great in the summer time when it is hot and you need lots of shade. BUT not so good in the fall when it is raining and colder. Well treed for the summer heat means dark and dingy in the fall. It has large sites and good restroom areas including great laundry rooms. But will try... More

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!
