This is our first trip to Manitoulin and the staff here were determined to make it a trip to remember! They are proud of their camp ground and their island and it shows! The camp ground is small but the people are incredibly friendly. Campground is well Maintained. Bathrooms are Clean as well as free clean showers. You can tell they are working on updates with the bathrooms. When we initially booked, they were full but offered us an overflow site. When a cancellation came up, they called us and offered us a regular site instead. From the phone cal to booking, to changing our site, to our arrival, to our departure, their staff was incredible. The beach is beautiful. Lots to do, rent kayaks, peddle boats, fish. Newer playground for kids. We thought coming to Manitoulin was a one time trip for us, but my kids are asking to come back here again!…
We were disappointed by Batman’s; the campground is cramped and seems to be mostly for untidy stationary trailer home for seasonal rentals, not for campers. We drive an 18 foot converted cargo van and all of our camping has been in provincial & national parks so far, where there is more space, privacy and cleanliness to the sites and washrooms than Batman’s. The first site we were assigned, #12, was tiny, no view, and right up against a trailer home and the next site. The nice lady in the Office gave us#45 for the night, which had a lake view and was much nicer. However, nothing else was available the second night so we departed and found a much nicer site at Lillians Camp Ground, next to Lillians Craft Shop. At this site we are right on a clean beach with a wide view facing North. Batman’s is likely popular because it’s the first campground off route 6 and they advertise heavily…but keep looking if you want a cleaner site, more privacy and better views.…
Stayed here for two nights in August with two families (4 adults and 4 kids) and we all loved it. Clean, well kept campground with all of the amenities you could ask for including paddle boards, canoes etc. Next time we will stay longer.
This is our second visit to Batman Cottages and Campground. We absolutely love it here. The campground is very quiet. The owners are always available snd are very much involved in the daily routines. The washrooms and showers are immaculate! The entire campground is so well looked after. The bay is quiet and a perfect spot to enjoy all sorts of water sports. We will return for many years to come.
Clean facilities and friendly staff. Washrooms/showers were impeccable.After a torrential rainstorm, our sites 139 and 140, were mostly submerged under water and remained so for a few days (had to move the tent to the edge of the site but even then we were still dealing with a saturated tent and a site the kids wore their rainboots on. Beautiful view/access to the lake from the sites but we would choose other sites next time. The pic I have included was from 2 days after the rainfall and we were still dealing with excessive water.Surprised at how unfriendly many of the other campers were. I'm not used to walking around a campground, saying hello, and just getting blank stares back. Good location-close to trails and towns.
On February 24, we made a reservation for Site 10 at Batman’s Cottages and Campground on Manitoulin Island, for June 15 and 16. Our plan was to camp our way from Craigleith Provincial Park (Collingwood), to Willow Lake Campground (Woodstock), and then proceed up the Huron Shore, camping at the Pinery, Point Farms, Inverhuron, Sauble Beach, and then to take the ferry over to Manitoulin Island. So, we reserved two nights, June 15 and 16, at Batman’s Cottages and Campground on Manitoulin Island. We paid them with our Visa on February 24. a total of $125.43. But the Premier of Ontario announced new restrictions on May 23, and no campgrounds were/are to be opened before June 14. So we cancelled all of our reservations. We have received full refunds now from six campgrounds. But NOT from Batman’s. They first attempted us to accept a credit for the 2022 camping season. We said, no, we wanted a refund on our credit card. They (a certain Lisa) said their policy was to charge one night’s camping in that event, even though we were cancelling 23 nights before our June 15 arrival date. We find that very unfair. It feels like gouging to us. They have refunded $67.52 of our initial $125.43 Visa payment. We will never reserve at this campground again. I found this campground listed in Camping in Ontario. Batman’s treatment of us gives this publication a very bad name as far as we are concerned.…
We had booked months in advance and close to our arrival they contacted us a switched us to a lakeside site that came available. Wonderful sunsets and very quiet lakeside with fire each of our 3 nights. The camp is located just outside of Little Current and was ideal for us as a "base camp" to explore the rest of beautiful Manitoulin Island. The reception on arrival was extremely helpful pointing out numerous sites to visit and the camp office staff were attentive throughout our visit. Only downside was the toilets being completely closed. (We stayed at 5 camping parks on our trip & Batman was only one with no washroom available). Notwithstanding, would recommend this camp.
We were told the internet would be available prior to our visit and we had booked many months in advance in order to receive a good placement for our RV. We did not however know that we would not have any Internet at all and would need to use our own Data which we needed for a trip out West the week after our Batmans Visit. We would have to walk to the store and sit at a table or just stand around to use their Wifi. Our spot and overall Customer service was A+ or 5 stars, we are a technical family and could have used this feature.
We booked our campsite several months ago and luckily we were still able to go. Lisa was really accommodating and explained that a restroom would be available to us, just no shower due to COVID-19 restrictions. Our site was great and partly shaded. The restrooms were very clean and staff cleaned them often. The store was well stocked with anything we needed. The beach was nice as well. Great to take a dip on a hot day. We would stay again! One thing we did notice is that not all the sites are shaded so I recommend checking with them when you book to ensure you know what you are booking.
We were at Batman for a week in September and loved it! We had a beautiful site across from the lake which was so nice to wake up to. Campground is very clean including the bathrooms! Had a tree come down with a hydro line right behind trailer one night in a storm Andre quickly arrived to make sure we were alright. Very great experience in this park! We will be back next year!✌️
