Situated in the middle of the town, their visitor bureau is located at the building beside it, which also shares a ServiceOntario.

The washrooms are located outside the building and are clean as well.

The toonie itself, well it's there if you're collecting coin monuments in Sudbury and Echo Bay, this completes the Holy Trinity of Canada's coin monuments! One seemingly small step for an average Ontarian, one giant leap for the traveller's heart!

Now if some other places in Ontario build a dime, quarter, and, maybe, even though decommissioned, a penny monument!

A neat place to take a picture! It is also nice to sit and watch the boats and the water that is nearby. There are picnic tables to sit at if you wish. Many trees to sit under that provide shade.

It's hidden by a lot of trees and if it hadn't been for another couple telling us why it was there we'd never have known. What we were told is the person who designed the Canadian Toonie is from Campbellford. Sure would be nice to see a plaque or something for the person!

It's difficult to find this at this time of year as it's nearly hidden by the trees. (That's called Poor Planning.) Pity there was no explanation of the monument, although years ago I read that the person who designed the Toonie lived in Campbellford. Don't know his name. Didn't learn what his name is.

Campbellford is a nice town. It is a little congested during the summer months because it attracts alot of tourist. You can stop by the big monument and have a relaxing coffee.

On our way to a cottage we stopped in Campbellford after reading there was a suspension bridge and a giant Toonie. You can't miss the Toonie that is right at the park gazebo next to the Trent River and close to downtown. It's a quirky fun little monument dedicated to the person who designed the logo on that particular toonie. Interesting to stop by and see if you're driving through the quaint little town of Campbellford. Being Labour Day, unfortunately all the little shops were closed so we didn't venture into the village.
It's a giant Toonie...not sure what people expected when they got there but we enjoyed it!

This is something to see, a nice park for a picnic, or a stroll along the river . This is a monument to the person who design the coin.

We stopped here on our way in to camping at Ferris Provincial Park. We went into the tourist info to ask
why it was there and they explained that the person who came up with the design was from there.

Glad you enjoyed your visit - you made a great choice with Ferris Provincial Park, quiet, close to town, lots of trails and the suspension bridge. Thanks for sharing your review.

Find a bigger, better toonie and I will retract this statement. Campbellford is lovely and quaint and provides ample opportunities for outdoor activities. Like blazing.
