Killbear Provincial Park, Parry Sound, Ontario

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

Very beautiful park which is extremely busy in the summer making it hard to book a site. To solve this problem, I reserved for the first week in Sept after Labour Day. Our site was large and private, surrounded by trees and shrubs, with a ravine behind us. No tv reception nor internet access. We attended an evening program at the Amphitheatre and enjoyed it. Lots of deer in the park, heard loons & owls, spotted a Pilleated woodpecker, and also saw a black bear in Blind Bay campground (closed to campers at this time). We went on all 5 trails in the park -- absolutely wonderful and the scenery can't be beat, just like a "Group of Seven" painting. Wish they had better signage for the "Twin Point Trail" as we only saw a picnic area sign and missed it the first time around. Great visitor centre but no camp store within the park to buy a few groceries. All in all, a terrific place to visit, especially in the off season when it's quiet, peaceful, and the leaves have started to change colour. We camped at Killbear Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Falls Reserve Conservation Authority, Benmiller, Ontario

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

Peaceful campground beside the Maitland River with spacious, grass-covered sites, all back-in. Some seasonal sites. Main attraction of this campground is the falls area which you access by going down a flight of stairs. You can place your chair on the rocks to view. Many jumped into the water, though small children will definitely need supervision as the rocks can be slippery and the current is swift. Some fished off the rocks though there is a stocked pond available for a fee. Water too shallow for canoes/kayaks. There are a few small playgrounds and lots of great walking trails throughout the park. No internet, tv channels or camp store. We camped at Falls Reserve Conservation Authority in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Town of Goderich is about 10 min away and has a Walmart, Canadian Tire, and grocery stores. Visited Stone House & Cow Bell Breweries as well as Maelstrom Winery, each within a 30-minute drive from campground. Town of Bayfield's main street is a must-see with its quaint shops and restaurants.

Valens Lake Conservation Area, Cambridge, Ontario

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $51.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful campground, once we found it that is! (Campground website says it's in Cambridge but you will need to program your GPS for the City of Flamborough or Hamilton, as if you indicate Cambridge, it will lead you nowhere and wondering where to go next. From exit 268 on the 401, it's about a 25-min drive to the campground entrance). The campground has sites of all sizes from x-large to medium, either pull-thru or back-in, all with 2 picnic tables each and a fire ring, most with lots of privacy with trees/shrubs in between sites. There is a gated entrance; they give you a swipe card to enter which was no extra cost. We camped the week before school was out for the summer and there were plenty of empty sites. We walked the Boardwalk Trail around the lake and climbed the Lookout Tower. There is no internet available anywhere in the campground so please be aware. We had a few tv channels. As for their alcohol ban, we brought some along but drank it discretely (we enjoy some wine with our dinner). Park staff (young students) would drive around the campground a few times a day and waive hello; not sure how much the alcohol rule is enforced but we didn't see anybody interrogating others about it. Didn't appear lots for children to do, though some were fishing. Anyway, we enjoyed this natural & peaceful campground and would return again. We camped at Valens Lake Conservation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Log Chateau Park, Fenelon Falls, Ontario

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Mostly seasonal campground but some overnight/transient sites. Best sites w/30 amp & H2O would be 426 - 428 as they were private and treed. For sites 329A-D which were all open except for trees in behind, you drive up a grassy hill. The campground lacks signage as these sites were difficult to find without direction from the staff. The campground office isn't marked either so we guessed on where to register upon our arrival. The website needs improvement for the info they provide for overnight campers, as all it says is "$17 per person, children free". Found out that extra adults are $5 each after the first 2 adults @ $17, though staff didn't monitor or check to see how many people were on a site. No fee for extra vehicles. Got 1 tv channel with our antenna. Free internet was available near the office. This campground caters to people with ATV's as they were everywhere in the campground due to the Victoria Rail Trail which cuts through the park. The campground has a clean large shallow pool which was unheated but refreshing. Well-kept playground equipment at the playground fields and near the pool. The beach area was small and steep; the water gets deep there quickly. We were able to dock our canoe & boat near the beach for free. Bathroom & showers were tidy. To access the dump station, you had to back in your RV which was awkward. We camped at Log Chateau Park in a Travel Trailer.

Ivy Lea Campground - Parks of the St. Lawrence, Lansdowne, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

Lovely scenic campground situated between Kingston & Brockville along the St. Lawrence River, perfect while visiting the Thousand Islands area. Secured gated campground with a variety of campsites, some open, some shaded. Many beautiful hilly sites along the water which are suitable only for tents. For those with a tent, check out site #118 -- simply gorgeous! There is a small beach for swimmers with a section dedicated to divers, as well as 2 boat docks for those with watercraft. The base of the Thousand Islands Bridge which crosses into New York state is located in the campground; you walk underneath it to go to the beach. Wifi was available at the campground office but did not reach our site. We had 4 tv channels with our antenna. Staff were pleasant and made their rounds to ensure a wonderful camping experience for all. We camped at Ivy Lea Campground - Parks of the St. Lawrence in a Travel Trailer.

Paintsville Lake Campgrounds, Staffordsville, Kentucky

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

Large level site with pebble-stone pad. Only room for 1 vehicle to park on the site; visitor had to park on grass beside us. Sites 19 - 32 have good evening shade. Didn't have any tv reception with antenna. Would be willing to pay a higher camping rate if they included free internet. Beach area wasn't visible due to bushes & shrubs; would be nice if they cleared the area. Only 1 bathhouse near walk-in sites. We camped at Paintsville Lake Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Finn Road Park Campground, Essexville, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Small, quiet campground in middle of farm land; our site backed onto a cornfield. Campground is neat & tidy with paved roads and cement pads for each site. Can't beat price of $23/night, incl tax, for full hook-up; also no reservation fee. Phone reception & free internet worked great. Had over a dozen tv stations with our antenna. Some seasonal sites but all had modern large units and were well kept. Not much for children to do although there is a small playground & horse shoe pits for older children. Public boat launch adjacent to campground parking lot. Nice paved trail from boat launch leading out to the bay. There's also a Nature Trail Walkway, about 2 miles long that starts at the campground and leads out towards Bay City. Sadly, you cannot see the bay from either trail due to thick high plants/weeds that grow about 6' tall. We camped at Finn Road Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Hammock Harbour RV Park, Orillia, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Mostly seasonal sites. Smaller section for transient/overnight guests; these sites are mostly open, smaller, with few trees and little privacy. I would recommend sites 110-113 if you want some shade. We were escorted to our site and shown where to place our trailer. Staff were pleasant. Campground could use some updating but is kept clean and tidy. Roads were dirt but they coated them to prevent dust. Showers cost a quarter to use but it gave plenty of time and worked well. While we were there, the pool was not heated and even though it was July, was too cold to stay in for more than a few minutes. Wading pool had no water in it for several days. We used the tennis court and mini golf. Great place to dock/launch your boat and enjoy the lake. We caught good amounts of perch and bass. You have 2 hours free internet during your stay but once you access it, you have it for the next 2 hours and not 2 hours for the duration of your stay. No reservation fee to reserve a site (which is a bonus) and visitors/guests were not charged a fee to enter or for parking. Overall, a pleasant stay! We camped at Hammock Harbour RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

My Old Kentucky Home State Park, Bardstown, Kentucky

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

We had site #22 -- very spacious, trees in back for privacy and quite level -- probably the nicest in the park. Water and 30 amp hydro easy to connect to and no extra hose needed. Free Internet was available in the park, though you had to go to the front gate/booth to access it, as it didn't reach our campsite. Small playground for children, though not much else to do for kids. Awesome 18-hole golf course next door, in fact, you could see the carts go by behind the trees. We used this campground as a base to tour the bourbon distilleries and see the Stephen Foster Story performance, which is a must-see. Note that the actual campground address is 836 Hwy 49 and not Stephen Foster Avenue -- just follow the signage. We camped at My Old Kentucky Home State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hocking Hills State Park, Logan, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Great location for visiting the Hocking Hills scenic trails; in fact, Old Man's Cave Trail & parking lot is right next door. Good-sized campsites throughout the park. There are no water hook-ups, however some of the sites are next to the water tap and you can do a quick fill-up of your tank with a hose. Lots of trees behind most sites to provide some privacy. Some sites pads were on a slope due to the terrain. Visitors are allowed in for free which is a nice feature. Pools weren't yet open when we were there but looked inviting and clean. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Algonquin Trails Camping Resort, Dwight, Ontario

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

Campsites are in a natural wooded setting; most seemed spacious with trees in between for privacy. As nice as this is, I found the owner to be unfriendly with poor people skills. Perhaps this is why the campground was less than a quarter-full in the prime of summer, yet nearby Prov parks were at full capacity. If you want a campfire, you must pay $10/bundle of wood, as no outside wood of any kind is allowed. There is a fee to use the dump station if only staying a few nights. Could be a great place with some improvements to the facilities which are showing their age, and with a happier disposition from the owner. We camped at Algonquin Trails Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Saugeen Bluffs Conservation Area, Paisley, Ontario

Nice family campground with decent-sized sites. Trees in between offered privacy in Maples campground section. Some seasonal sites. Good-sized playground for children. Horseshoe pits for adults. Covered pavilion with electricity and tables. Camp store was only open on weekends but ice & firewood was available for purchase at gatehouse. Though no swimming pool, there was a small wading pool for children. Cell phone reception was available only near the gatehouse and not at the campsites. A 15-minute drive to Port Elgin where there is a Walmart. This campground is an access point (#11) along the Saugeen Canoe Route. We camped at Saugeen Bluffs Conservation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Another nice COE campground with large spacious sites throughout. Our site, #61, had a newer picnic table and large decorative stones/boulders leading down to the water. You could walk down to the shoreline to fish, whereas some of the waterfront sites are not accessible. Visitors were charged $3 per car. Peaceful & quiet family campground.

Hill and Hollow Campground, Pentwater, Michigan

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

The campground is divided into 2 sections, 1 on each side of Highway 31. You could hear & see traffic on the sites bordering the highway. All sites were spacious, well-kept, and offered privacy with the mature trees and hills in between. We stayed prior to the Memorial Day weekend and no reservations were needed as barely any campers present. No extras at this time either (pools, restaurant, activities were closed) but price reflected this. Saw several deer in the campground. Would definitely return if in the area again. We camped at Hill and Hollow Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Charles Mears State Park, Pentwater, Michigan

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

We didn't camp here but drove through the park to check it out while in the area. When we first entered, I thought it was a parking lot, as all I saw was asphalt with patches of sand in between and the odd tree. Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that this was actually the campground (the electrical posts gave it away!) If you like zero privacy and like to eat sand, then this is the place for you. Only benefit is the scenic location right beside the lake and sand dunes. We camped at Charles Mears State Park in a Travel Trailer.
