We had been here before but came in for some winter snowshoeing. We were out for about 90 minutes on a tough-enough trail that took us down to the beach. The warming hut at the start of the walk was great, and it was a...More
My wife and I were there for a long weekend with a bunch of other families... the camp sites are beautiful... the beaches are lovely.... and to top it off... they offer canoes on rent ... we hand a great time canoeing...
Mid-October and the leaves were anything from a brilliant gold to russet red. This is the Canada we had been hoping to see.
The carparks were close enough to afford us short walks to viewpoints for some photos.
At every turn, the views were breathtaking....More
The best time of the year to visit this park is between mid-September and Thanksgiving in October (after that time you cannot camp inside park with limited entrance access). There are very few people around compared to the summer season that you can have your...More
Really impressed with the privacy and size of our Turtle site 10. Surrounded on three sides by green forest. The shade keeps things cool and calm. The tips on here helped, picking something not too close to comfort station. And it was good to know...More
We have visited the beaches at Awenda Park a few times this summer and loved it each time. The only down side to it is that beach 4 is by far the best but it is a good 10/15 minute walk from where you park...More
We stayed in Awenda as the first stop in a tour through 4 provincial parks and it was our second favourite overall. The sites among the trees are large (we were in wolf campground), but the vegetation between the trees is pretty short, meaning that...More
Turtle camp ground, no radio zone, The camp grounds are so close together, all we heard was our neighbours conversations, screaming baby all night so close we could hear the other campers snoring
I did not hear one cricket ! I would never go there...More
Seriously, walking for 30 minutes to get to Plage 4 was so worth it. The water was perfect, the sun was lovely, the people weren't annoying... it was fun!
I love how there were all types of people there: young, old, friends, couples, kids and...More
A family cottaging week placed us on the doorstep of Awenda PP. We took our British visitors in for a walk and a view of Georgian Bay. $20 for a day use pass for the car allowed for access to all the hiking trails for...More

There is canoe rental with the park at Kettles Lake. We haven't rented for a couple years but from what I remember it was very reasonable and you can rent for an hour or longer. Kettles Lake is very calm(when the weather is good of course-compared to Georgian bay)and good to take kids out on. I don't believe you can take the canoes to the
beach - they are just for the small lake.

A few comments: - Given your interests, try to spend more time in Killarney and the Bruce, and maintain your current allotment for Algonquin and Killbear, by skipping a few of your other destinations (see below) - Skip Bronte Creek, unless you just need a place to camp for the night - it's not worth traveling to in and of itself - Awenda I'm not a huge fan of either, it's nice but doesn't compare to some of the other places - Presqu'ile and The Pinery I haven't been to but my...More
Trip Review - Ontario camping (2 Replies)
My husband and I just got back from a camping trip (small tent) through Ontario - it was beautiful! We started in Toronto and camped in Glen Rouge outside the City. The City was on strike and almost shut it down - we got lucky. It was small, kept up and very nice. We heard two raccoons fighting in the middle of the night but that was it. Next we head over to Awenda Provincial Park. It was nice but a little gray and rainy while we were there so I don't think we got the spectacular feel i...More
