Great day at the beach with my family. It is a busy park but well worth visiting. The water is beautiful and great for little ones to play as it gradually gets deep.

Bring a large extension cord, many sites have the electrical power source on their neighbour’s property, about 30ft away. Toilets are mostly latrines, except for two stalls near the showers. The showers were very clean and nice, with warm water. Laundry is expensive $3 for wash, $2 for dryer. Wood is $8 for a tiny package, but that does last... More

We stayed in a serviced trailer for two nights at Blue Lake. It is a lovely park, with a forested campground, clean toilets and showers and helpful staff. Our serviced trailer slept four and had electricity, a fridge, and a sink with water. The campsite also had a fire pit and a bbq. We appreciated all of these amenities. The... More

We now live on the east coast, but had the chance to revisit a few of our favourite Northern Ontario spots on vacation last week. A good campground experience is dependent on a lot of factors - how busy it is, the weather. The lake level was very high that week leaving no 'beach' and it had been very windy... More

The campgrounds are immaculately maintained and the staff at the grounds were very helpful and friendly. The beach is beautiful and the water is like nothing I've seen in the Canadian Shield. Swimming in the water felt like we were back in the ocean it was so crystal clear. We did some fishing, it was fun whether in kayak or... More

This is the wrong address it is about 45-60 minutes out of Dryden you turn off of the only highway #17 in Vermilion Bay. This is a Provincial Park no restaurants or food available unless you bring your own and cook it while on a day pass or while you are camping there.

Half hour drive west of Dryden on a beautiful lake. Great camping facilities which seem to be so busy all summer that reservations should be made early in the spring. Close to Vermilion Bay for food and coffee.
