Just got back from a 4 night stay, and enjoyed every minute. The sites are some of the biggest and most private of any Provincial Parks out there. The beaches are stunning and if you are willing to go the distance, beach 4 is definitely worth it! Nice sunset viewing too, but a good half hour hike. Be warned if... More

We have visited this park on two separate occasions during the Day. The first time we visited in October there weren't a lot of people. We biked the trail connecting the beaches and visited all of them. The beaches ranged from Sandy to Rocky and everything in between. We tried visiting again in the summer and the beach areas were...

After reading all the reviews and not having gone camping in a couple years, i wasnt sure what to expect from awenda. My fiancé and i were completely blown away with the beauty, tranquility and overall camping experience we gained. The campsites were big, spacious and so shady. It feels 10 cooler on site then outside the park which is... More

Just returned from our eighth year camping at Awenda, our fourth with grandson. Note to Joyce L and future 2016 campers The campfire restriction from 7-10pm is because of the dryness. Many parks in southern Ontario have imposed an outright fire bans so we felt fortunate that Awenda had not. The 7-10 campfire restriction was reasonable considering the conditions. Still... More

The place was breathtaking I absolutely loved the views. It was my first time camping and I did not know what to expect (keep in mind I also don't have anything to compare it to). I stayed in the turtle campground. Beaches were really nice, make sure you drive up to it. I stayed at beach 3 which was the... More

Awenda Provincial Park is a well cared for park with large, well treed campsites. We have now visited twice, and stayed in the Turtles campground (non-electric) each time. The park has great family hiking and biking trails, and the beach is large with a good sized sandy shore and a fun rocky swimming area with crystal clear water. Wasaga beach... More

Beautiful provincial park. The campsite we had was big and private. We took the path with our dogs down to the beach. It was a long walk. Near the end of the walk there are a lot and I mean a lot of stairs. We took them and we went to the dog beach. The dogs loved it. I would... More

I scoped out the park last October and knew I had to be back. A bit out of the way as its at the top of the peninsula but worth it! 4 great beaches each with a different flavour, #3 was calm and family oriented. #1 & #4 had large boulders in the water and waves to keep it interesting,... More
