Driving through the park, we noticed that owners had taken advantage of natural landscape elements but have avoided the closed-in feel of many wooded campgrounds. Premium 50-amp site was gorgeous but this newbie found it very tight backing in with our 37-foot fifth wheel. Excellent power and good water pressure. We are self-contained, but visited washrooms and they are spotless We love this park, and will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Well maintained wooded campground just a short distance from downtown Tobermory. Most campsites are spacious and had lots of trees in between for privacy. The only difference between the regular and premium serviced sites is that the premium are a little larger in size; none have sewer hookups. It'll cost a quarter to use the shower for 4 minutes. There's only 1 shower in each of the men & women 2 washroom buildings and there were line-ups at times. My only complaint is that they charge too much for extras. Each site is for 2 adults and 2 children under 18 plus 1 vehicle. Extra adults are supposed to be $9 per night, extra children $6, extra vehicles $7; however, I observed several times that management doesn't enforce their own rules about this.

Tobermory is a beautiful area, especially for its green and rocky sites. However, my stay at Lands End Park left me with mixed feelings. On a positive note, the camp site appears to be well maintained. The trees are luscious green and pathways are very well maintained. However, here are a few things you need to know from what I saw and experienced. (a) Beach front view campsite: there are none. Large evergreens block any view of water. The beach front water is like swimming in a marsh like pond. What was noted in their maps does not provide a true reflection of what I saw. (b) Staff personnel. Young lads work the area and try to be hospitable. However, this is not true of some of the Management staff. Some of the senior members are arrogant and condescending when dealing with client needs. (c) Curfew. Being in this place was like being monitored by strict parents. At 11pm, they have their curfew wardens going to various campsites asking families to keep it down and settle in for the night. You cannot even stay up with friends and have chats and laughs over a fire without having the wardens flash you with their flash lights. It is amazing on how much they try to control your evenings and force you back to bed. If you like to spend some time watching the stars, talking to friends over a campfires: well, this is not the place for you. (d) If you are planning to bring tents, guess what? The grounds are solid bedrock and will require you to go through a ton of stakes. So bring you hammers, drills and iron clad stakes to keep your tents down. (e) If you have an RV: well good luck parking them in such tight spots. I heard some decent reviews, however, experiencing it myself makes me doubt some of the reviews, especially regarding the management staff. If you like a warden-like environment then this place for you. If you want to have fun, then go somewhere else, and enjoy your day and night under the stars. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Nice clean well ran family park. Park is located a short distance to downtown Tobermory. We had a enjoyable stay. Park was a little tight for our 40' rig, but was maneuverable. We were here early in the season and manager said further limb trimming was yet to take place. Would return if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There’s no question that Lands End is a nicely maintained and spacious RV park. The literature and web site, however, may lead one to believe that there’s just a little more direct proximity to Georgian Bay or Lake Huron. In fact the only water view is from a tiny beach on a tiny “bight” a fair walk across the street from the actual campsites. Everything else is deep in the forest.It is a nice forest, with nice sites but definitely “forest”. The only other glaring deficiency is the dump site. It’s very inconvenient to access down narrow roads on a fair slope, towards the back of the campground. It is not exactly the kind of terrain you want to negotiate when leaving early in the morning. They do have a pump-out service but unless your there on a Thursday ($10.00) it will cost you $15.00. The Wi-fi works well if you park next to the office but not elsewhere in the park. We’d stay again in that Lands End is probably the best in Tobermory but we’d be less naive about the actual site environment. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very well kept family campground. It doesn't have everything, but everything it has is excellent. This is an example of a campground where the details are taken care of. Directional signage is very clear and well maintained, both leading to the gate and within the park. The gravel roads are well mainained. The trees are trimmed back from the roads. The gravel sites are level. Each site has its own power post and water tap (they aren't shared). The location is very convenient to attractions in the Tobermory area. The sites are wooded and private. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice family park but some roads very tight with trees for Class A's; a few premium sites with grass and very level. A small beach across the road on a small bay is available for campers and is owned by campground. Convenient to town (and ferry). We had 30 amp. Pay phone outside of office. Pay showers. A duck pond and a nature trail are on property. Wood for sale for fires in fire ring. Dump station is in back. Nice people own it. They are expanding so might have more larger sites soon. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lands End is a very nice campground in a "natural" setting. The sites are are fairly large and most are surrounded by trees. There are not a lot of activities for kids, however, the beach is very nice and there are great docks for the kids to fish from. The campgrounds (including washrooms/showers) were clean and well maintained. It is very close to the ferry and there are a lot of things to do in the area if you like hiking, boating, swimming, etc. I will certainly go back there if I am in that area again. We camped here in a Tent.
Very nice well maintained campground. I'm sitting in the clubhouse as I'm writing this and they have a religious show on the TV and the walls are decorated in religious sayings. It feels a bit like a Bible Camp. Which is okay as long as they don't come around knocking on my RV door. It's close to town, people are very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice wooded sites. Some might find them a little tight. Sandy soil lets things settle in a bit. Excellent access to the parks and tours. We'd go back when at the tip of The Bruce. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great large gated park, lots of activities for the kids: a petting zoo, W
wagon rides, a pool and splash pad. Cabins are for rent as well. The store has essentials, they will deliver your fire wood to your spot. Staff is pleasant and friendly. It's a five minute drive from Tobermory. There is a golf course across the highway. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were very impressed with the campground and would stay here again. The staff is very nice and helpful, very efficient. They had a sale on good quality campground T-Shirts which was a nice touch. The grounds are very well maintained, the pond and boats are a good attractions. We also liked the pool. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent park, it's well run. These people can't do enough for you to make your stay good. I was very impressed! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Great super clean campground. Kids loved the playground, pool and petting zoo. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They enforce quiet hour - we loved it! The roads are gravel, we hade a nice grassy site with trees. You can go online in their store but no wifi. Perfect location for all local attractions. Great doggy day care service! We camped here in a motorhome and would stay here again in a heart beat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very rude staff, campground is not as portrayed on their web site, dog kennel was a muddy cage under a tree, we stayed one night then paid $10.00 per day cancelation fee ($70.00) just to get away. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very large campground with great open spaces for walking, exercising pets etc., but the few large rig transient sites are much too close together given all the space that's available in the park. Having said that, the park is well maintained and looked after and is very conveniently located relative to all the attractions in the Tobermory area. We looked at a couple of other campgrounds while in the area and don't hesitate to recommend this one as the best in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean and fairly new facilities. Friendly staff who always seemed to be busy with something - hence very well maintained. Some pullthroughs, bit tight access because of nearby trees. Lots of shade sites, and some open sites for satellite access. Overall, this was a very nice park with convenient access to the Bruce Peninsula National Park and town nearby. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice family campground about 1 km south of Tobermory. There are 3 ponds on the property. It's very quiet and pretty. Lots of places to cycle and walk. I've really enjoyed our stay here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
