We primarily chose this campground for a weekend getaway due to its proximity to Montreal. You can’t beat a drive of about an hour! The campground is well laid out and has a choice of primitive sites as well as those with power and others with both power and water. Ours had both and the rate reflects this. There are two playgrounds and some organized activities for younger kids. The views of the St. Lawrence, the ship traffic, the south shore of the river and the foothills of the Adirondacks on the horizon are spectacular. One downside was the train horns at night. We ran our ventilation fan the second night and that helped. Also, although they do their best to clean it up daily, there was Canada Goose poop on the beach. Lastly, while swimming, the kids and I went out too far (beyond the sandy area) and cut our feet on zebra mussels, which we didn’t know were a hazard! We reported it to the friendly and helpful staff and they posted warnings right away. Despite these hitches, we'll certainly go to this campground again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We visited this Provincial park in May. It was still too cool for the beach. The campground features many shaded camp sites as well as those that are more exposed. Like most Ontario Provincial parks, there are no full hookup sites. The centrally located dump station offers easy access. The campground is located along Lake St Francis where there is lots of fishing. The premises were clean and well maintained. Since it was early in the season, we were practically the only ones there. That was great. The bicycle path just outside the campground takes you out to some very picturesque areas. We have come to this campground several times and enjoy each visit.

This past weekend my family and I spent the weekend at in the non-serviced sites by the water (422). The view at this site was amazing! This came with a premium of extra $$$ per night which is fully understandable. What is unacceptable was the pile of rubbish that was within 100ft of our campsite. At first I thought it was just a large pile of wood to be burned in the off season. However upon closer inspection I saw there was garbage bags, old furniture, and even baby diapers within the pile. I find this disgusting and I feel that this should not be considered acceptable at any campground, especially when paying a premium. Second issue was on the Saturday night there was some sort of volunteer party being held on site. This party went on until 2 am with loud music and screaming that could be heard from our site. What was even worse was to arrive at the men's bathroom the next morning with my son only to find what i believe to be vomit in one of the urinals. Overall we had an enjoyable weekend but due to the above mentioned negative points I would not consider coming back. Very beautiful campsite but what I witnessed this weekend makes me wonder about respect for fellow campers. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
