There is absolutely no sleep here. The train passes by every hour or so throughout the night and blows its HORN!!!!! So be expected to get woken up every hour. If you want to escape the city and the noise, definitely find another campsite. Campsites are small and are next to each other without trees in between. So there is... More

While at Parry Sound, we spent a few hours at the park, mostly canoeing. The parks rent canoe / SUP / pedal boat in 2 hour / 4 hour / day.

The camp site is situated on Oastler Lake in Parry Sound, On. Beautiful beach but bring some crocs to wear in lake. Has lots of amenities with showers washrooms. Assortment of camp sites ranging from some on the water, Close to restrooms. A variety of fun for the whole family.

I prefer this to other larger parks, We used to purchase a seasonal daypass just to be able to come out and enjoy the beach here when i was growing up. It is still the same as I remember it as a kid.
