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

I went to Mew Lake in late September 2014 and had absolutely perfect weather! It had been cold at night and very warm during the day for about a week before going. Because of the conditions their was no bugs and it was absolutely wonderful. Like other reviews have stated and what I pieced together from the low lying water... More

A wonderful family camping trip. We had Yurt #54 and it was great. large lot and close to water/toilet. There is a raspberry bush right beside us and we were picking and eating berries throughout our stay. I also know the the blueberries were amazing but we didn't have time to go get any. There was a bear in the... More

Found a great looking site online, backing right on to the water, with lots of space and a good mix of sun and shade. The photos looked perfect. And when we arrived the site was indeed spacious, with a good mix of sun and shade. The lake wasn't very accessible from our spot thanks to some very thick plant growth.... More

We are avid family campers and have been all over our province to stay at provincial parks. We stayed at Mew Lake Provincial Park this past weekend and had a great time. The sites were all very large and if you were tent camping (or didn't require electricity) there were some FANTASTIC waterfront sites. The park has some amazing trails... More

We were three complete newbie families, booked 2 sites at Mew Lake with no idea what to expect. The sites at this location were huge - could easily accommodate 3 tents per site, plus vehicles. Or, you know, 1 monster RV. Our sites were flat, had fairly good privacy (compared to other campgrounds we visited while at Algonquin) and drained... More
