2 Parks near Bancroft, Ontario
Jun 2010 - $34.00
Rate was for a full hook-up, non waterfront. This park seems to be primarily a seasonal situation, and I’m not sure why: there’s lots to see and do in the area for a weekend. The residents and particularly the owners are very friendly. A really upscale playground for the kids and a sandy beach on a shallow (therefore, warm) small lake. We thought the park rather spartan at first, but upon walking around, found a nice variety of sites, including a fully serviced group area. Arrive prepared with food and videos: although they advertise a variety store within walking distance, we didn’t notice it. Of the four TV channels received on the amplified antenna, one dealt with fishing for three hours and the other three were cartoons each morning. The Wi-Fi, although competent, required a hike up a 45 degree hill to the office to receive it. Never mind, we don’t have a dog so we walk the laptop. They plan to upgrade the coverage with a pay-as-you- go system in future. The men’s room was clean (albeit older) and freshened with disinfectant, but the ladies’ didn’t rate quite so highly. Altogether a nice place to stay while exploring the shops and galleries of Bancroft. - ebdavis
Jun 2016 - $34.00
This is a basic campground with mostly seasonal sites; phone ahead to see if there are any serviced overnight sites available (most unoccupied sites are unserviced). Narrow winding interior roads make it unsuitable for big rigs. No WiFi or flush toilets; outhouses only. The campground is on a private lake; very peaceful and quiet, especially during the week when the seasonal campers are not around. Lots of trees (which means lots of mosquitoes too); nice sandy beach with play equipment for kids. Sites were very clean, with a picnic table and a fire pit. Cellular reception was fairly good. 2016 rates: $32/night unserviced; $34/night serviced. - Neil C.
