Went to Sandbanks Provincial Park on Saturaday. What a cool place. The dunes are a lot higher than I expected and you can walk on them along the water front. Although this is late in the year, there were still a few hardy soles swimming....More

We came in September and stayed 3 nights on lot 4 of Outlet A camp ground. The process was very easy. Site was clean. Clean comfort station nearby. The most beautiful sunsets and beaches I've seen!

So much beach!! and you can bring your dog to one part. You can walk out forever and it's still shallow. In September it wasn't too crowded, but the ice cream shop was open!

The beach area is reasonable and large with swimming possibilities in Lake Ontario. Probably best visited, as we did, during the week as it gets extremely busy on hot weekends with day trippers from both Toronto and Ottawa. There are a huge number of camping...More

Too windy this year and cool overall (throughout the time we were there). However, when the sun came out- it was all better. Lots of relaxing spots. Kids and adults had a great time relaxing. During the summer, remember the Ontario Park coupon for parking.

Outlet A is the most sought after area. Yes I have camped at all sections but book early as this is a very popular park.
