We have been camping at this PP for over 23 years. We return every summer and love it. It used to be a real hidden gem...The secret is out, but due to the camp sites you still feel the seclusion and privacy your looking for...More

Myself and five friends canoed in to Massasauga for 4 nights in August. The trip was relaxing; we were only 12 km and two portages from the Three Legged Lake put-in location, and had no trouble bringing amenities. Our site (#200) was fairly isolated at...More

Went on a three day canoe trip from the three-legged access point. It is a beautiful park. We stayed on two different lakes. The campsite on Speyer was fairly low and poorly laid-out. Our other campsite was excellent. Both had thunder-boxes and good fire pits....More

None of the sites we stayed at (or saw) had wooden decks; each just had a ‘thunder box’ and a designated place for a fire.

The Vacation from hell... Sailing Georgian Bay goes Wrong (5 Replies)
Imagine the bliss - I had saved up a month's worth of vacation time, and we were going to sail our family sailboat from Barrie area up Georgian bay to the North Channel. If you are a boater you know that this is a trophy trip. We didn't win the trophy... To get from Lake Simcoe to Georgian bay we had to transit the Trent Canal. 4 locks, including th e"Big Chute Marine Railroad". We took the mast down in order to fit under bridges and headed down the river. After leaving Lake Simcoe we...More

When we got to Sans Souci, the staff at Henry's pointed us to the nearest open dock, where we tied up, and with borrowed snorkelling gear I went swimming to inspect the damage to our keel.

In th emeantime I could fix the rudder. I removed it from the boat and...More
