4 Parks near Cayuga, Ontario
Jun 2013 - $35.00
We did not camp overnight. We wanted to stop by this park and pay to dump our black and grey tanks. We called ahead, and they said they were big rig accessible. Even though it's a small park, it was a 45 min drive through their park having to go 1-2 miles an hour due to incredibly narrow roads, pot holes (huge - several feet across!), and an incredible amount of low branches. The employee had us follow him down a 30 plus degree hill, and a super narrow dirt path, and we took out several trees branches with our RV (NOT HAPPY about those scratches). We also had to put the truck in 4x4 to get up the hill (nearly didn't make it, and there was nowhere to back up and get a 'running start'). Campers were stopping us and telling us we nearly lost our entire sewer pipe system on the steep hill and that we 'shouldn't be trying that hill in that rig!" (which we wouldn't have if the employee and owner hadn't insisted it was big rig friendly). Then we finally got to the dump station it was a mess. They use chunks of concrete to help you hold down the hose, but their pipe it too small, so it flies off, and we have to clean up sewage. It's super muddy and messy. Then it takes another ten minutes to get out of the campground thanks to the same issues. We burned about a 1/8th of a tank of diesel just driving in this park. Don't camp here. It's mostly seasonals. It's not well maintained and in NO way can it handle anything larger than a20ft trailer and SUV. Lastly we had called ahead to ask how much to fill our fresh water tank with potable water and were told it would be $50.00. It costs more to get water than to camp there for the night which makes no sense at all. - ciara

The first weekend it was packed. But it was Canada Day and the USA's 4th of July, so we should have expected that. We stayed for a week and the longer we stayed, the more we liked it. The beach is nice, but don’t be fooled. Lake Erie is not the Gulf of Mexico. There is some sand in the water, but mostly rock. - mike9v

Had to drive through the tent area to get to the site. Mostly seasonals at this park. Good beach, well groomed and clean. Was pretty expensive, and not really setup for motorhomes. More of a trailer setup. Store had pretty much nothing but nice restaurant and arcade on site. - atss2006

Sites were spacious, though sunny with no shade. Conveniently located off QEW between Toronto and Niagara Falls. Staff was friendly and helpful. Marina, beach, and fishing. Very well maintained. Big rig friendly, though no pull thrus, but site was easily long enough for rig and tow. Quiet: could hear some noise from QEW, but not bad. A bit more than we like to pay, as we spend most of our time away from the park, but well worth it if you use the amenities. - DYK 640

A generally quiet campground in a county park. Occasional noise from the QEW but only if the wind is from the west. The beaches on the lake are ok.
Asphalt and gravel access roads. The asphalt portion of the access road is "two lane" but iffy on two rigs passing - especially at the curves. Gravel access roads are single lane. The trees are not well trimmed for taller rigs. The older section sites are close together with heavy foliage and are not big rig friendly. The newer section is an open field with young trees. Mostly level, gravel sites are not overly long (44' class A fit with toad parked sideways) with large separation between sites. Big rigs do NOT take first two roads into older section. Wait until you pass the bath house and see the open field before turning.
Power ok even under heavy load, water ok, sewer ok (needs a donut). Wifi has very poor signal, but with a couple of high gain antennae was very usable with decent speed. Verizon (Bell) LTE 2 bars, but did not check speed. T-Mobile (Telus) LTE 2 bars with ok speed. Note that both the Verizon and the T-Mobile devices defaulted to the wrong carrier when on auto-carrier select.
Full single stream recycle on site. 3 mile loop on interior roads suitable for road bikes. The waterfront bike trail goes past the campground all the way into Toronto, but first 7 miles are street riding before getting to the shoreline. Did not ride past Hamilton as the lift bridge was closed.
We will return when in the area. - SeaLandSkyPhoto

One of our sites was littered with cigarette butts and other small trash. Told them at the gate and while they said they'd see to it, they did not while we were here. The gate/phone staff was very pleasant and otherwise quite helpful. There is a $12 Canadian reservation fee, which makes a 1 night stay less reasonable than a longer stay. Luckily the exchange rate was favorable for us! - SaneJane

Norfolk Conservation Area is a provincial run park along the shores of Lake Erie. In the area there are a number of "Conservation Area" parks dotting the lake coastline with perhaps the most popular in the area being Turkey Point Conservation area because of its beautiful sandy beach on Lake Erie. We stayed at Norfolk because a family member has a seasonal camper there. This is an older park filled mostly with seasonal campers in mostly very very old trailers. Sites are all gravel or grass, somewhat flat to very uneven. Some, such as the site we had 104, are on the cliff side bank of Lake Erie offering beautiful views, especially at night of the surrounding coast line. Though the rangers where very friendly and helpful in providing us with a site big enough to accommodate our 35 ft. class A, I don't think anything larger would fit. We did encounter some low hanging branches entering the park. Roads are rutted gravel/dirt. We only had 30 amp service and the last day at the park the temps got down to the mid 30s, and my surge protected kept cutting power to our rig, probably because of all the electric heaters running. We would visit again only if we got the same site 104 and because we did enjoy touring around Port Dover, Long Point and some nearby wineries. - vincee
