Very clean and friendly park. Easy access to highway and convenient for the RV traveler. Excellent dog park and walking trails. Level full hookup sites with WiFi at many of them. Internet station available 24hrs for others. Pool was empty but being September that was expected. They were sandblasting the pool in preparation for paint - should be magnificent next year. Hot Tub was available even during pool renovations. Many improvements to this park in the past few years and more to come according to the staff. We (and our 2 dogs) thoroughly enjoyed our extended stay and plan to return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We too where camping at Brighton for the soccer weekend referred to in the last posting. I think that mom should recheck her facts. I was in the play area when her son starting abusing/kicking the chess pieces around and then throwing the checker pieces into the wooded area. The owner asked him to stop, his friends where watching not participating with him. When asked why he was destroying the game he didn't answer, he was then asked to leave the area for that day. I would have banned him forever! My question. Did the parents offer to pay for the damages he caused? or just complain? Our kids where in the soccer tournament for the last 2 years and have camped at Brighton KOA both times and plan to again next year. It is a great park and I am glad they take the time to stop other peoples children from destroying what they have to offer. And are you serious about complaint about Free Dog Treats that the store hands out? Buy your own if this is such a problem for your daughter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is your basic campground, good for a short stay. Clean a couple planned activities, pool and decent sites. We however will not stay here again. They are friendly enough with adults but do not relate well with kids. My son was silly at the park and played a little rough with chess set. He did not get a warning but his understanding kicked out forever and he was in tears. We support them talking to him but they were a little harsh for a first ever offense. They were also rude to my daughter at the store when she went to take one dog bone for our dog. She was told they had to give the dog the bone, they snapped at her and she refused to go back to the store. When I mentioned in my review that they could have handled things a little more age appropriate they started expanding adding untruths. I was ready to admit my sons fault and consequence appropriately but he is just at the age he sometimes earns some freedom and their treatment of the situation was overboard. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly check-in to a well maintained campground. Site was level and extra long. Good services and clean laundry room. Close to highway, but highway noise from 401 was not disturbing due to elevated position. Good for a stop over and a longer stay. Stayed here before and will stay again when in area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed for 2 weeks. Loved the park and the managers and work kampers were great. Lots of information available. Managers had made great improvements in the park. Large pull through sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in the Bluffs section site 62. were across the road from the waterfront sites but was still outstanding. Grass with shade, level and what a view! Most sites the same. This is the best section of the CG. Brand new bath and showers(free)which I think is the same in the whole CG. Could not control water temp though so on the 90 degree days it was a bit warm but plenty of it. Sites along lake book early (90days) so don't wait and they are all great. Sites are very spacious and many are open but still lots of privacy. Some of the sites in other sections do have very nice water views and access but are not right at the water's edge like in the Bluff area. A bit pricey for just electric but the views are worth it. Beach is OK and very long but lots of birds and their droppings everywhere. CG tries to rake the beach regularly. Great biking and birding here. Free shuttle into town. Definitely will return and stay longer and hope to book a water site. Only reason for a 9 is that water is not that easy to get in the CG. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A beautiful park on Lake Ontario. There are a wide variety of sites, from heavily wooded to wide open. If you're camping in a trailer or motorhome the CGs of choice are The Pines and High Bluffs. There are many activities within the park, and a lighthouse and interpretive center as well. We usually avoid the beaches (there are three) because they collect algae and sometimes there's a strong smell. Swimming can be had off the rocky shores on the south side of the park. We've stayed here many times and will keep coming back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There are several campgrounds in this park. The High Bluffs Campground has a number of large level sites along an 8 foot high bluff overlooking Lake Ontario. About half have some shade, the other half are open. Every second site along the bluff have 15 and 50 amp service and some have been provided with 50 to 30 conversion cables. Sites 71, 75, 79, 97 and 100 all have 50 amp service. In general all sites from the entrance down to 63 on both sides of the bluff road are suitable for large rigs. Sites that are further away from the lake are typically small and some have a significant slope. After the May 24 holiday weekend the bluff area quickly filled up with large trailers and motor homes and almost everyone had dogs with them. Its a very popular park: reserve early for a good site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Another reviewer seems to have mixed reviews on Presquille because of the fact that it is heavily wooded. People should take note that Presquille is a "Natural" provincial park and as such is this way quite intentionally. Not all RV'ers enjoy the sterile atmosphere of an RV park with paved roads and little forestry. For what it is, Presquille is one of the premiere camp grounds in the Ontario Provincial Park system and it's level of occupancy attests to it's popularity - if you want a site during the prime summer period, you'd best reserve! We typically visit Presquille at least 2 to 3 times per summer staying an average of 2 to 3 nights. Negatives are many low level sites - wet weather can unfortunately have negative effects on some campsites, but again, this is little different than almost any campground. Presquille is located in a naturally wet woodlands area and as such there are issues that come along with that. There is only one fresh water fill and dump station, but again, this is typical or almost all provincial parks. Extra large trailers (ball trailers in excess of 28' or Fifth Wheels in excess of 35') may have some problems navigating the roads in some of the campgrounds so it may be wise to stop at the main road and plan your entrance. Overall, we love it! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is Presqu'ile Provincial Park. We paid way too much for our non-prime electric site - about $34 a night for the campsite, $11.85 for the reservation fee, and $5.48 for the GST tax for our 3 night stay - for the jungle-like atmosphere we got. I can't remember when I've seen denser shade. The sites have privacy but the vegetation is out of control. The electric hookup for our site was ten feet into the jungle and shared with the neighboring site. There were no showers in the Trail's End section where we were. It was muggy and there were lots of mosquitoes. The best sites would be the prime ones directly on the lake which have a breeze to keep the bugs down and have more sun since they face south. Thank goodness we had only one light rain shower during our stay - a hard rain would have turned the place into a muddy swamp. There is a single dump station for the entire campground and only one water source to refill our tanks. This campground is really for tent, pop-up, and smaller trailer campers although there were a few smaller 5th wheels and motorhomes. It was very full for a weekend in late August so reserving in advance to get a site in the sun would be required. However, we won't be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Now this is a camp site. We pulled up unannounced without reservations for a one night stay on our way back home. We were able to rent a site with hydro for the night and since check out is 1400 gave us plenty of time to enjoy the almost full 2 days we were there. The kids 7 and 9 enjoyed swimming in the big lake Ontario waves and our site was big enough again to let me drive my truck and trailer around with ease. There was lots of shade as well as nice bike trails. The staff was great and tried what they could to accommodate us in the best location and they did a great job. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
