This large, wooded campground is located at the base of a lovely stone cliff with a stream babbling along it. The campground is equipped with all kinds of activities for family play and has several miles of trails through the woods and along the creek. It is a beautiful setting. There are only a few seasonal campsites. Our electric/water campsite was level and gravel. Cable TV and Wifi worked well. The campsites are pretty close together, though at the time we were there not many people were camping. Campground staff work hard to keep everything nice and to make you feel welcome. The price reflects AAA discount, they also have Good Sam discount – you will need to bring your card inside with you when you register.

This large campground is located on Lundy’s Lane in Niagara Falls, ON. There are two major other campgrounds nearby. The stop for the town bus that runs down Lundy’s Lane to the Falls is practically on the property. There is very limited parking near the Falls, so the bus is really the best option to get there, and it is very convenient to the campground. While the campground does have some seasonal folks, it is really set up for temporary visitors coming to see the Falls. The staff was extremely helpful. Our campsite was gravel, level and full-service. The Wifi speed was better earlier in the evening and degraded later. Price reflects Good Sam discount and $Canadian.

This was the only campground open in Tobermory after Canadian Thanksgiving, though it does close later in the month of October. It was clean and had zippy fast internet. The campground is about a mile from the center of Tobermory and a few miles from all the hikes and other things to do at the Bruce Peninsula National Park and Fathom Five National Marine Park. Our full service site was level and easy to get into. Price reflects off-season discount and $Canadian.

We actually stayed at this Ontario provincial park twice, the first time when we arrived on the Bruce Peninsula and again as we were leaving. It is a heavily wooded park along the Sauble River at the lovely tiered falls. We were told that we had missed the salmon running up the falls by a few weeks. At the time we were there, the East Campground was closed for work, and only the West Campground was open. During the off-season, the camp hosts will check you in if you arrive when the office isn’t open, which is very convenient – though the camp hosts only take cash. We were running out of Canadian money by the time of our second visit so arranged in advance by phone with camp staff to pay them when they came in the next morning. They communicated this with the camp hosts and all was wonderful. Our electricity only campsite was large and level and had a view of the river and the falls in the distance. The trees were beautiful autumn colors which was an added bonus. Price quoted here is in $Canadian.

This Toronto and Region Conservation district campground is located one of the residential areas on the outskirts of Toronto. Though it is a campground that closes for the winter, it feels like a poorly run trailer park. Some of the seasonal trailers are very well kept, and some of them are trashy. We arrived after a rain storm, and our first site was a swamp. Our second site had had new dirt put on it that hadn’t been compacted so we sunk in to our axles in mud. Our third site was damp but better than the first two. We had water and electricity. The laundry facilities were great. The campground has free internet that is best accessed from the laundry building area, so I made friends with a fellow camper who has using a washer as a desk for his computer while I did my laundry. We had read in these reviews to avoid the side of the campground near the train tracks, so we did. We got traffic noise instead along with the train sounds in the distance. After a while you learn to block those out and it didn’t really bother us. That said, the campground was VERY convenient to the people we were visiting and the work we were undertaking in Toronto. Price quoted here is in $Canadian.

This huge Ontario provincial park is located on a narrow, hook shaped peninsula in Lake Ontario. Our spacious, level campsite was right on the water. There are beaches, trails, opportunities for boating and a lighthouse here. Price quoted here is in $Canadian.

This large campground is located on Colonel By Lake that is part of the Rideau Canal system. Our level water/electricity campsite had a beautiful lake view. Many of the campsites are for seasonal folks, but there are still good ones for temporary visitors as well. The campground is close to Kingston, ON and very close to the Kingston Mills locks of the Rideau Canal, which are very pretty. The park has free internet at an “internet Café” and in a multipurpose room. Price reflects a Good Sam discount.

This enormous, beautiful New York state park in the 1000 Islands region is located on the same island as the bridge to Canada, though you would never know it while you are in the park. Most of the 6 camping areas were closed when we were there, the park closed for the winter a week later. Our campsite was a few yards from the St. Lawrence River and some of the many islands that give the region its name. There are informal put-in spots for canoes and kayaks throughout the campground. It was several miles from our campsite to the main entrance, and miles beyond that to a town. I wouldn’t suggest using it as a staging point for touring the region, but there is plenty to do in the campground, so you may not need to leave. We were here for only one rainy night, and will definitely return here again to enjoy all that this wonderful park has to offer.

This pleasant campground is located on the shores of Henderson Bay, Lake Ontario between the towns of Henderson Harbor and Sacketts Harbor. It has a gazebo for watching the lake, a boat ramp, and a small rocky beach area. The area closest to the shoreline has seasonal folks, and the temporary visitors are placed closer to the road. Our full-service campsite was level and unshaded. The campground is well-maintained. The laundry facilities were excellent.

We stopped at this pretty New York state park for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by it, enough so to warrant writing an entry here. We had camped at another state park the night before so we did not have to pay an admission fee as a day visitor, I put $1 in for this form because it would not accept 0. The campground has about 60 campsites. At the time we were there (mid-week, off season) fewer than 10 were in use. Many campsites have water as well as electricity, which we hadn’t found in the three other NY parks we stayed in. Most campsites can see the Lake. There is a lovely historic lighthouse on the property, right next to some of the campsites. If we are ever come this way again, we will definitely try to stay here.

This is a huge New York state park with several camping areas that are really spread out from each other. The campground with electricity is called the Bluff Camping Area. It is a wooded area on the top of a high bluff with a steep road going to it. Next to it on the bluff is the Lakeview Camping Area which overlooks Lake Ontario and has 2 electric sites on either side of the restrooms. The beautiful wide, long sand beach was about ½ mile from our campsite. There is a lovely pond (that is connected to the lake by a channel) with swans, ducks and geese and a place to rent or put in your small boat for paddling around. There is a boat launch on Little Sodus Bay (that borders the park) for boats that arrive on trailers and a dock for tying them up. There are cabins to rent here as well. The town of Fair Haven is very close to the park. Our site was large, and level and very shaded.

This beautiful, spacious, well maintained New York state park is on the shores of Lake Ontario. Our campsite was large and level, and located on the edge of a very tall bluff overlooking the lake. The view was mostly obscured by trees, but the sunset was fantastic. There is a small area where you can reach the rocky shoreline of the lake. This park is very popular for people visiting Niagara Falls that is close by. Even in the off-season it was pretty busy. There is lots of green space in the park. Sites only had electricity.

This beautiful, spacious, well maintained New York state park is on the shores of Lake Erie. Our campsite was large and level, and located on the edge of a bluff overlooking the lake. What a view! There is a large sand/shale beach, though the park has “no swimming.” There is lots of green space in this park. Sites only had electricity. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a lovely, well managed campground just minutes off of I-80. The campground has RV sites, "primitive" tent sites in the woods, a cabin, a pavilion, a lovely pond, a children's play area and places to play volleyball and Frisbee golf. There are trails through the wooded area on the perimeter of the campground. The sites are gravel. We had a very level pull-through full service site. We asked for and got site 23 mentioned in another post, it is a very nice spot. There are seasonal campers on the edges. The camp store has many helpful things and hand made gift items as well. The managers/hosts are a husband and wife team who take great pride in their campground and who work hard to make your stay comfortable.

This campground is over-priced for what you get. Our site was gravel and level. The utilities were convenient. If we had had neighbors, the campsite would have seemed very small. We looked out on a seasonal campsite that looked run down. There were tons of empty sites, and we weren't sure why we had to be stuck next to this eye sore. The Wifi didn't work. The water had a terrible mineral taste - we unhooked the water in the morning and remade our coffee with water we had on-board. My husband tested the water, although it was chlorinated, the conductivity was over 800. Normal tap water is usually between 200-300. There are lots of games and activities for kids. The campground is in close proximity to Buckeye Lake which would also draw families. We were two seniors just getting off the road for the night, so these amenities didn't really apply to us. However, the campground gave us what we needed, a clean and safe place to stay for the night.
