5 Parks near Bruce Peninsula National Park, Ontario
Jul 2006 - $22.00
242 sites without electric or water (available at central spigots.) Flush toilets are spread throughout. There are no showers in the campground but available just outside the camp (private). The location is what makes this park such a gem and as difficult as can be to get in during the summer. It is on the famous Bruce trail and a 1/2 hour hike takes you to the crystal clear blue waters of Georgian Bay, looking down from high cliffs. There is great swimming including a grotto and other fascinating creations in the limestone cliffs. The campground is located on a small lake with a narrow beach. If you like to hike, this is the spot. If you like to swim don't pass this up! - Gandalf

This was the only campground open in Tobermory after Canadian Thanksgiving, though it does close later in the month of October. It was clean and had zippy fast internet. The campground is about a mile from the center of Tobermory and a few miles from all the hikes and other things to do at the Bruce Peninsula National Park and Fathom Five National Marine Park. Our full service site was level and easy to get into. Price reflects off-season discount and $Canadian. - ShoreXplorers

We stayed for about a week. The campground is spotless. The dog kennels could be improved - for example they are no longer on grass as advertised but concrete stones, and there is no cover for rain (our dogs were soaked as we couldn't get back in time to avoid the sudden rain). Dog kenneling prices are good and they will keep them til 8pm which is nice. Our site was ok - treed, but not level. It was easy to pull in -however, very tight exiting (the forward road was quite narrow). The rest of the roads in the park are easily travelled with a big rig. The site we had backed on to one of the parks main thoroughfares, so we were inundated with dust day in and day out - traffic, people, bikes etc constantly walking behind our RV (past our 'living room' window), made it noisy and dusty. Watering the road down would reduce the dust considerably. The exercise area, ponds, roaming ducks, restrooms, and petting zoo are all wonderfully cared for. There wasn't really any hiking or walking trails that we found to walk the dogs etc. For those that use it - the pool area and splash pad is clean and well maintained. There's a giant dumping bucket for the splash pad. There are carts to rent - very popular with the kids, and giant duck and swan paddle boats. There is a strict quiet time after 10pm which really makes it enjoyable in the evenings. They charge a 10.00 reservation fee if you reserve by phone - none by web. We paid 8.00 additional /night for a 3rd adult (no children however). We walked around the CG and simply picked better suited sites for our rig and preferences for next year - as we are definitely coming back. All in All a beautiful campground well run, clean, and lovingly maintained. We will continue returning. - ciara

We stayed here seven years ago, and the review I submitted then is still pretty much valid. "Very clean and fairly new facilities. Friendly staff who always seemed to be busy with something - hence very well maintained. Some pull-throughs, 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." The major change since 2007 is the price. Last time, the price was $36 per night. Now it is $50. That seems to be bit much of an increase. Next time, we will try some of the other places in the area, some of which are new. On top of the basic high price, everything else is added cost. Their laundry was very inefficient and expensive. We spent $20 for four loads and even then, the dryers did not work adequately. In our ten years of full-time RVing, this is among the most expensive and inefficient laundries we have used. - wandrr

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. - Gilligan

Great park. Sites are mostly large and private. The post with our site # on it was kind of hidden/camouflaged, and we hit it with the side of our trailer. Put a hole in our trailer door. Sooo, drive very slow and watch for posts/obstacles. Roads are very twisty and narrow. Premium sites at the back are very nice. Try to get those if you have a big rig. Great location for exploring Tobermory and area. Note; water tap at dump station didn't work. Hope they fix it. We will definitely camp here again. - Monique_F

NOT big rig friendly. Reserved a premium serviced site, and once you got in, it was very nice, but roads are VERY narrow with overgrown trees and very narrow site entrances. Very hard to make turns just to get to site, and ended up with pine branches scratching side of vehicle. Had to back up just to make one turn. The turn on other approach would have been impossible for my 32' motorhome. Neighbors took an hour to get their 5th wheel backed into their site, and I had to get help from two people, which is the third time in three years I have needed help getting into a spot, with more scratching from pine branches. They need to do a LOT of tree trimming in this park, plus widen the roads a bit! Premium sites are on level gravel and have water and electric, but no sewer.
Getting in site was not worth the effort and scratching of paint. Not appropriate for big rigs, regardless of what they tell you in the office. Also, not appropriate if you want to come and go a lot, as I usually do. I am not going to go through the pine bough scratching again, so will be riding my bike into town.
Also, "free Wi-Fi" means 30 minutes of free Wi-Fi--after that you have to pay $5 per day--so that is a little misleading. I will not be returning to this campground. - judy_online

Beautiful private campground. My entire family had a great experience and would return in a heart beat. Very close to downtown Tobermory and all of the awesome Bruce Peninsula tourist destinations/beaches etc. Good service, friendly. - Yubbie

Wonderful campground. No outside radio play! Very quite in the evening.
Best site to ask for is N28. This is further away from the amenities but it's worth the extra walk. - TMinett

Excellent stay! Used our Passport America pass and stayed off-season for half the usual rate. Clean, extra friendly, lots of activity even in the pouring rain! Despite a hook-up issue we were having with our hitch, the staff gave us an extra hand to solve the problem. Thank you. We would be happy to return there anytime, and highly recommend it! - camping folk
