We stayed at Mew Lake Campground from August 29 until September 3, 2015.What a surprise to see a black bear not just once but three times during our stay! A bit scary but what a awesome time and a great story to tell everyone!

Mew lake campground offers a very good location for a families with kids, a beautiful lake, well spaced campsite providing privacy and well appointed comfort station with clean washrooms and showers !. If you stay away from campsites close to HWY 60 (which we didn't) it would be an awesome experience.

What a gorgeous park! Our site was right on the water. We could canoe right off of our site which was fantastic. You are closer to the highway than some of the other parks in Algonquin but the noise really is not that bad at all. The odd logging truck comes through at night but they don't use engine brakes...

We may have camped on Hwy. 60. There was NO indication of noise when reserving this site online. I slept only 2 nights the entire week. It was horrible. The lake was like being at a conservation area..no outlets to rivers for canoeing. Although for families with young families learning to kayak or canoe it would be ideal. We were... More

We have been camping for 4 days and 3 nights at Mew Campground on July 1st- July 4th First of all – all campgrounds are around the lake- so it is always chilly especially at night. Make sure you have warm clothes! I would say it was like late November at dusk and night. Recommend to have winter jacket. However... More

Can't go wrong anywhere in Algonquin Park!! Beautiful country. Stayed for 9 nights at Mew Lake. My favorite park in Algonquin. Nice large private lots! Lots of sunshine. Park was clean and well maintained. The old railway cycling path goes through the park. Easy access. Nice ride to Rock Lake. Unfortunately, the beach was closed for a few days because... More

This is a nice clean campground. Mew lake is on the smaller side and is right off Route 60 so I would recommend booking a site away from the road as the car traffic may be bothersome. We booked a yurt on site 49. It sits right off the lake, away from car noise and you can canoe/kayak straight from... More

Stayed here for two nights in June on site 5. Sites are very large which is nice. Not many people were there so we had lots of privacy. Bugs are bad but not the worst I've seen for this time of year. The beach is nice and we were able to get some great pics of some Canadian Geese with... More

We camped here in October and got great weather although very cold ! Camping ground is really big and there were heaps of spaces to put your tent that had lovely lake outlooks. Even cooler we heard a pack of wolves howling through the night and were told the next day there is a pack living there at the moment... More

I had always wanted to stay in a Yurt and took advantage of the quiet time. As well, with the nightime temperature below zero it was a warmer alternative. I was by myself but the Yurt had sleeping for 6 although the inside would be cramped with more than 4. It was clean and came with a table and chair... More
