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

Visited Awenda Provincial Park for 3 days and 2 nights at the end of August. Main attraction is that this is a beautiful park not too far from Toronto. The first thing you do when you visit the park is to register at the park office. Remember you are NOT allowed to bring in outside wood to burn so you... More

A great thing about this park is that it's only two hours north of Toronto. We were able to leave home at a decent time and arrive at a decent time to set up. The comfort stations were the cleanest I've experienced in a Provincial Park! I could of walked in without flipflops and had no worries. Mosquitos were moderate... More

A park close by with something for everyone. Dunes,beaches,trails,fishing, kayaking. It's on Georgian Bay so there are some wonderful beaches...2 for people and 2 for dogs. Beach 4 is the best but a longer walk for the little ones. Kettle's Lake is in the interior so safer for kayaking/canoeing when it is windy. The only con about the park is... More

This park is pretty big. Very mature trees - which is beautiful but it means most sites are in the shade. It depends on what sort of camper you are whether or not you'll like this park. If it rains, the shade makes it difficult for things to dry out. The wood/ice depot is in one spot, but you have... More

Visited Aug 3/2014 for a day trip. $14 for a day pass for the both of us. Walked the Wendat Trail and took a swim in Georgian Bay. The park is gorgeous, lots of tall trees keeping it cool in the heat and humidity. Because we went on a long weekend we were expecting it to be busy, but compared... More

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
