This has been a favorite camping and hiking spot for me since I was a child. The campsites are spacious and many offer above average privacy. The beach area is large (though the rockiness along the shoreline makes it a bit difficult to swim) and offers a beautiful view of Georgian Bay. The area is surrounded by dense, beautiful trees...

I have been many many times over the years. It always a memorable walk. I feel it's best in the fall with all the leaves changing. I often choose to walk around Kettles Lake. It's a good hour and a bit to walk right around the lake. There are so many different natural settings as you walk. There is a... More

The attraction here, in my opinion, is the water. Although the beaches are not to wide the water quality is very good. There are four different beaches so explore them all to find your favourite. The park is spread out. There is an elevation difference between the campsites and the beaches. So it is a bit of a hike uphill... More

We often camp out at state parks in the Adirondacks where sites are generally larger, but it is hit or miss on a sites size and privacy. Not here, every site is huge and private. Particularly liked the radio-free loops where you could just hear nature. Bathrooms were immaculate and many loops had a comfort station with a laundry with... More

My boyfriend and I went up to this provincial park for a night with our dog. Of what we saw of the campground during our short stay there we thought it was a beautiful park with Well maintained trails, clean bathrooms, private campsites and crystal clear water! We went to the dog beach for our dog - we all enjoyed... More

This provincial park is amazing. The nature is spectacular. We had visited the park several times as day users, and only stayed at either beach 3 or 4. This Labour Day, we camped at the Deer campground and our site was great, just behind a comfort station, which was accessible and clean. We decided to walk the Bluff trail, which... More

The kids love this park! When you they tell you after 4 days they don't want to go home and want to know when we are booked again you know. The beach on Georgian bay are beautiful and the water was nice and warm.

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...
