A small wilderness area that's usually quiet. Great to see turtles, small wildlife. Best time to see mammals is dawn and dusk. Extensive marsh is good for viewing turtles and frogs, herons, eagles and red wing blackbirds.

Rondeau is a very strange setup. The peninsula seems to be a Ontario park that is also shared with local cabin owners and a trailer park. Because of this it can be a bit confusing to explore at first. Because of this unique setup its no wonder this park has some mixed reviews. The only electrical sites seem to be... More

It looks to me like things are a way out of hand in Rondue Park. I traveled far to come see this beautiful park. Wow was I surprised to find all these cottages in park? Wow again when you look to see how they got around building codes so they can crowd more people in to this eco sensitive area... More

We stopped here on our way to Point Pelee National Park. Paid a lot to get in for the day (around $17 for 2 people and car) and stayed just a couple of hours. To our utter amazement, SEEDY LOOKING COTTAGES LINE THE LAKEFRONT WITHIN THE PARK. We just couldn't believe what we were seeing - it certainly wasn't the... More

I titled this review "little brother to Point Pelee" because if you had the choice between the two I'd suggest Point Pelee instead. The trails in this park are ok, but all very limited. The southernmost point trail had too many flies to walk the full length. There is a bike trail along the length of the park but it... More

We are big campers and have hit up most of the "popular" parks but were very pleasantly surprised by this park. The washrooms were clean - they actually seem to hire a "molly maid" type of service for the washrooms! The sites were a great size and we could walk to the beach - we were in the south loop....

My wife an I will often go to Rondeau for a nice day trip. To avoid the cost of the park, bring your bikes and park at the beach access spots that are just outside the park gates along the beach (take any of the roads to the left as you head toward the park gates). There are 3 or... More

Been going ever since i can remember. Clean beaches, friendly staff, and lots of things to do but it's also a great place to sit back and relax. Nothing but fond memories here.

We just recently went camping for the week and enjoyed our week there. However the people at the gate were very inconsiderate and wanted us to pay $17 just to go in and move the fifth wheel trailer off the lot. Since my husband had hauled it there they wanted to charge him $17 to go in and get it... More

We had 2 cars full of adults and children. Cost $17 each car. Great deal for the whole day. We took in a picnic lunch and used the family pavilion by gate 9 and had a wonderful time. The beach was clean and perfect for the children for swimming and fun both on the beach and in the water. This... More
