We were disappointed with Albion Hills. The call center has no knowledge beyond what you can see on the website. Our site was supposed to be a 'short walk' to the pool. It was more like a 20 min hike (1 way) through the woods. The sites vary GREATLY in size. Some are huge and others are tiny. The pool was not included in the camping fee! Our three kids (10, 11, 14) were sent back saying that they weren't allowed in without paying extra (about $20 daily for the family). After I complained, the staff gave us free passes but having to argue for it was certainly was not enjoyable. Also, the pool and splash pad will fill up with busloads of daycamp kids. Campers should be aware. The fire pits were literally pits, just holes in the ground. Although sites were very close to one another, the campground itself was very spread out so it was too far to walk anywhere. There were only two showers at the closet comfort station. The dump station receiving hole was at the very limit of my dump hose. Lastly, we stayed here as a basecamp to visit Toronto and it was over an hour away. This was our mistake, but I don't want anyone else to do the same. We camped at Albion Hills Conservation Area and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I had a great time here. The campground has lots to do, the kids and I took bicycles and enjoyed the great trails available. Would definitely recommend it. We camped at Albion Hills Conservation Area and Campground in a Motorhome.
A very disappointing campground! We made reservations in May in order to be sure of getting a site that was easy to get into and included in our information was the size of our rig (32’). We were sent to a site that was very hard to back into and learned after we were set up that there were convenient pull-thrus available for the same price! Several campsites were overcrowded (10 to 12 adults and a few kids). Some inconsiderate campers chose to chat loudly until 4 am and others left their garbage on their sites when leaving The few staff who frequently drove around on carts to make sure that the occupancy card were on the posts ignored the litter and green garbage bags left behind. The fire pits were simply grates that campers had move to a convenient spot and most of them were damaged making them unsuitable for cooking over (we didn’t try). The picnic tables in our area were in need of repair/replacement as well. The chemical toilets were very dirty and smelly and were hosed out about once a day. The main bathrooms were somewhat cleaner but still not in the least appealing, especially the showers. To make matters worse the water pressure for the push button showers was terrible…a frustrating and unsatisfactory experience. The worst Conservation area campground I have stayed at in 55 years of camping. We camped at Albion Hills Conservation Area and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
