Date of Stay: July, 2012
Over the summer we stayed at Victoria Park Campground. This was our second visit to this lake front campground. There is an amazing view of the lake and beach and lots to do in downtown Cobourg. Unfortunately, they cram the campsites too close together trying to make all the money they can. Our RV awning was touching another campers RV. When you walk through the oval shaped campgrounds all you see is campers jam packed together. One of the seasonal people told us they did this to get more people in. It didn’t used to be so jammed. They didn’t have enough staff to keep the washrooms clean. We found them to be dirty most of our stay both times. They don’t check on the campers often so strange people are hanging around at all hours of the night. Make sure you don’t travel alone. For the amount you pay, and the little service you get, I don’t recommend this park. We tried it twice and don’t think we will be coming back. They also have a lousy reservation system for the Canada Day long weekend. Forcing campers to wait all night in a line up.

This is a nice, clean campground with spacious lots and good, paved access roads. We found that people drive very fast around the park. We were someone disappointed with the price and thought it was high for what you get. There was no 50 amp service, no sewer hookups and no water hookups. There is a fresh water station and dump near the entrance to the camping. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel and found it very easy to get around. If your looking for a simple GTA area camp ground for a quick weekend stay. This will definitely work. I would not recommend staying near the entrance of the park as you can clearly hear the 401 all night. Stay further back near the water & rest rooms. Not much grass and mostly pine needles everywhere: very dense pine trees.
