Beautiful safe campground, lovely pool, clean washrooms. Nice quiet family friendly park. Playground could use updating. It's not really safe. It is a wooden handy man special that makes you a little nervous with little ones (splinters, falls, etc). Owners are friendly, seem to be on a bit of a power trip at times. Not tons for kids to do, but the activities committee seem to do the best the can to organize activities. Not sure if they let in weekend campers any longer (only seasonal) as the info is not on their website. Seasonal guests only. - User3551

Stayed here for a week while visiting family nearby. Arrived on Civic Holiday and the place was packed. Staff at checkin was cordial and helpful. Back in site with a little bit of gravel and grass. Utilities worked fine - no problems. This looks like an old, repurposed farm, so everything is out in the open and there is no shade. 1/2 of the park are full time/seasonal, but are pretty neat and well-kept. Our site was immediately adjacent to the dumpsters which were full when we arrived and didn't get picked up for a week (I assume because of the holiday). Staff came around a couple of times and tamped them down with a backhoe....which just succeeded in stirring up the flies. Pool looked good (but crowded). There were no campfires allowed due to a burn ban in effect. You pay for wifi - and it was terrible. Use your own hotspot. They charge for visitors - $5 each for seniors). Good security with strict gate access. No cable, but we were able to get satellite very easily since there were no trees.
This park met our needs for a convenient spot close to family. I wouldn't call of a resort - that's a bit of a stretch. - FireFlyer

Since we were here last, 4 years ago, many more sites have been added (I would estimate an additional 50-60).
Still only 2 washers & 2 dryers in the laundry !!
In the Ladies washroom only 2 sinks with no water available at 1 of them.
Kids Splash Pad is now finished and open, but the main pool was overcrowded and "Adult Only Swim" sessions from 4 - 5 pm daily were non-existent.
Advertised regular activities (Euchre, etc.) did not happen & we were told they haven't happened in more than 3 years.
The "Club House", which consisted of 2 old school portable a few years ago, STILL consists of the same 2 old school portables, but both are always locked unless you get management to open them for you.
WiFi is $6.00 per day!! It is OK but don't try to Skype or do anything more difficult than reading email & basic browsing.
Management/ownership appears keen to get every dollar from customers, keeps expanding the number of sites, but has done little to improve the infrastructure.
Groups of teens regularly congregate near the laundry/washrooms well after dark even though park rules say them must be supervised and on their own site after dusk.
This COULD be a great park, but currently, in my opinion, is average at best. - IANDG79

Site # 157 Stayed here 30 nights. The campground is clean and well maintained. Very few trees throughout the park and none in the north section where 50 amp and sewer is available. The roads and sites are dirt/gravel. The south section is dedicated to the seasonal RVs and most have add-ons, etc. The campground hosts events throughout the season. There are plenty of activities for kids; pool, water features, playground, fishing pond. Tent camping is allowed. Check-in was easy. The office has short hours on most days. A pass is needed for the gate which needs to be re-issued every week. The train can be heard occasionally, but it’s minimal. Sometimes the approach to TOR changes and planes fly over. The only other noise is from the typical weekend camper that thinks they are the only people in the park and make noise until very late. The campground is rather new. They are still adding sites (the area we were in is the newest), improving the playground, etc. Hopefully they will add some trees. In a few years this should be a very nice campground. 50/30/20 electric, although 50 amp is only in the north section along with the sewer. Most of the campground is 30/20 and water only. With no shade the AC ran a lot to keep the RV cool on sunny days. The site is not level; blocks were needed to level the coach. Good quality water. Steady pressure (40 PSI) except occasionally on the weekend. OTA reception is fair with few channels. Internet: Pay. $20 per connection for the month. Good for most Internet activities. Streaming was fair and you cannot stream US sites (ABC, CBS, Hulu, etc) in Canada. Very small laundry, near the pool. 2 washers, 2 dryers. Older machines. Did not use. Same showers as the ones used for the pool and cost for hot water. Did not use, we use the shower in our coach. Large pool. Busy most of the time. Staff pleasant, talkative. Tried to get a different site (with trees) but got no cooperation from staff. They seemed reluctant to let us move. Many events on the weekends which causes the campground to fill up. Remote, quiet area. About 10 miles to shopping, etc. The usual issues with weekend campers. They are there for a few days and plan to get as much in as possible; noise, partying, smoldering campfires, etc. We stayed here because the campground we wanted was full. We will probably find a different campground the next time we are in this area. - Wiyndog

The previous review of this park is way out of date. We stayed here for 6 weeks in a 35' 5th wheel. The management is extremely friendly and helpful. Yes, there are some older seasonal trailers, so what! The residents are friendly, there is a large pool that is lifeguarded (wish it was heated) and a new playground for the kids. We had our grandkids there with us for a month and they loved it! There is a new section in the back that just opened up that are all pull through, that section isn't shaded though. There are also some pull-throughs closer to the front. The shower facilities are limited, only one shower per gender by the pool. However, it was clean. There is a dance every Sat night during the summer. We enjoyed our time there and would return. Most reasonably priced campground around! - stormdancer

We reserved a site suitable for a Motorhome but found upon arrival that we couldn't even get the rig to the available sites because of the dirty, narrow, rutted and pot holed interior roads. The Park is full of old full time trailers and is obviously not interested in catering to transients. - bandb

Nice family owned place. Clean and tidy. Rules are enforced, so it is quiet at night. Friendly staff. Family oriented so there are a lot of kids around. - rpm2203

Although we only stayed for one night, the staff were very friendly and helpful, brought their mobile pump out to our site right away and helped all they could. They seem to have a separate area for transients which was pleasant and away from the full time trailers etc. There were a lot of activities for kids and all in all seemed like a fun spot. - bandb

The Resort could have so much going for it. The listing says trails, I live here year round no trails. Indoor hot tub has been down for years. Too many Abandoned trailers and Module homes, cars, front end loader, Maintenance Building, etc destroy the beauty of what could be. Roads need repairs badly. We have no security entrance for entering and leaving the Resort. This causing problem with stealing and breaking into Trailers and homes The front Office and indoor pool are not being maintain Roof and Ceiling have major leaks. The indoor and out door pool are in good shape ready to swim, out door hot tub with water fall very nice. Bands that play every Friday Saturday Night in Bar, Sunday a band plays by the out door pool very nice. The restaurant is not reliable for opening hours. Hamilton Zoning and Bylaw and Owner have us in a Time Capsule" (there words) Sad that this once Beautiful Resort is going down. I/We as residence, campers would love to see money spend in the Resort for the many issues. We're in the woods, every unit is different and unique. Rather than being like most Parks that are cookie cutters. Nature and their sounds are great. Neighbours talk to one another and help out in so many ways. Support staff, both friendly and courteous. Different Events by Fernbrook are planned and other events organized by residence. If Only Hamilton staff and Owners of the Park would put more time, energy and money back into consideration of the problem in a timely manner, If Only. - Dawn Ashford 2017

This naturalist campground has been for sale for several years, but the deal never closes. The previous reviewer was correct in saying it is a bit run-down. The main building's facilities are clean and in decent shape, but outdated. The grounds could be nicer, but crowded and not tended to on a regular basis. Many seasonal/full time residents, and only about 10-15 "first come first served" sites. They do not accept reservations, nor do they have numbered sites.They have a nice pond and stream,with hookups and water every 30 feet or so, and you just park where there is room. The restaurant/snack counter is excellent and has fair prices for good food. The full service bars (in and out) are well stocked and the bartenders are friendly. The heated pool and hot tub area is beautiful, natural rock and good seating. They have a band or DJ in the pool bar most Saturday evenings during the summer. You can have a fire at your site, which we find is getting scarcer in the area... Remember, since it's a naturalist resort, you will pay daily grounds fees of about $33 per couple per day, in addition to the camping fees. - NY Nudist

The park was in disrepair. It is about to come under new ownership, so hopefully the new owners will fix it up a bit. Many things were old and worn (bathrooms, play area, lighting, showers, etc.) It was okay, but could be much better. - hedoTravelers

Beautiful campground, once we found it that is! (Campground website says it's in Cambridge but you will need to program your GPS for the City of Flamborough or Hamilton, as if you indicate Cambridge, it will lead you nowhere and wondering where to go next. From exit 268 on the 401, it's about a 25-min drive to the campground entrance). The campground has sites of all sizes from x-large to medium, either pull-thru or back-in, all with 2 picnic tables each and a fire ring, most with lots of privacy with trees/shrubs in between sites. There is a gated entrance; they give you a swipe card to enter which was no extra cost. We camped the week before school was out for the summer and there were plenty of empty sites. We walked the Boardwalk Trail around the lake and climbed the Lookout Tower. There is no internet available anywhere in the campground so please be aware. We had a few tv channels. As for their alcohol ban, we brought some along but drank it discretely (we enjoy some wine with our dinner). Park staff (young students) would drive around the campground a few times a day and waive hello; not sure how much the alcohol rule is enforced but we didn't see anybody interrogating others about it. Didn't appear lots for children to do, though some were fishing. Anyway, we enjoyed this natural & peaceful campground and would return again. - naturelover

This conservation area is generally very heavily shaded and treed with fairly tight access roads. It is also quite heavily used. We found the access for our 36 foot fifth wheel to be extremely tight, despite the fact that they advertised access for vehicles of our size. The campsite signage is poor, making access even more difficult. In addition, the large dense trees meant that we had no satellite connection. On top of that, the place does not have a laundry and is very heavily used. We would not stay here again, particularly considering the rather expensive price. - wandrr

Been here 3 times, on the south side furthest from the train tracks. Barely hear the train if your AC is running. Lots of tree coverage. Some mosquitoes. We only go for the kids. - Cannonball

This campground had nice size yards for each site and a very nice firepit ring. There is not a ton of shade for the non-seasonal sites. Unless you are a permanent, seasonal resident, you are not allowed to use the swimming pool. But everyone does have access to their "waterpark" which consists of a very nice swimming lake, a large inflatable water playground and a water slide. We really enjoyed our stay here and hope to return at some point. A few drawbacks to note: a train goes through at regular intervals, so if the sound of the horn bothers you, this might not be a place for you to stay. There is virtually no cell phone reception and we were unable to get any antenna reception for TV. They also charge an additional $10 residence fee for your stay besides the nightly charge. It's a bit pricey, but you still get a lot for what you are paying. - happy wi camper

We camped here in a travel trailer on what they called a double site (we had family on the site in a pop up). What it turned out to be was a small site that they charged us double for. The quarry was loved by our teenage nephew, until he came out with a leech stuck to his foot and had his shoes stolen. Our 3&5 yr olds liked the splash pad but were not big enough for the other water attractions. The big surprise is the train, not a train ride but an actual CP rail train that screams threw the center of the park all day and NIGHT and sounds it's horn LONG and LOUD, our 3 year old son was terrified and we had to let him sleep with his ear phones on (that he would wear to watch pro mod race cars). That staff was rude and belligerent the prices outrageous ($10 for a small bag of wood), no camp store, because they have the food concession at the beach (which took 15 min's to walk to from our site). Overall we had an awful experience at this park - chevelle

Couldn't wait for May so I dragged the family here for a one night so I could test all controls in travel trailer from winter storage. Hard spot to back into with my 59 foot setup. I picked a bad spot. Not all the camp sites flat. It was mud soaked from weeks of rain. Keep in mind that this is a provincial park so no water on site. You have to haul water jugs to your fresh tank filler. Which was 10 trips for me. Lucky the faucet was close and there's no threads to screw on to either. I recommend this park when it has dried out. - Cannonball

Very close to Toronto if you need a place to stay. The sites are a good size and most have good privacy. - Adventure-as

We wanted a site near the greater Toronto area so we could meet up with friends and this park fit the bill. The cost seems high for electric only service, and as mentioned in other reviews, the electric post may be a long ways from where you need it to be. In our case, it was located between sites 110 and 112, therefore, for site 110, on the non-utility side of our RV, and very close to the front of the site. We ran the power cord under the bus, and parked the bus with its front right at the road, and with an extension cord, we could plug in. The tow vehicle had to be parked in the grass next to the site. The site was plenty long for our 43' bus and would have been great if we had had two extension cords or the power pedestal was closer to where we needed it. We considered pulling into the site rather than backing in, but the roads are narrow and we weren't sure we would be able to get turned around to leave if any additional sites were occupied. The roads inside the campground are gravel and have lots of potholes - maybe to be expected by end of the season.
There are beautiful wildflowers growing in the "Prairie" section at this time of year - so it is very pretty. It appears that only the Prairie and Savannah sections are open, and, since it is mid-week, less than 1/3 of the sites are occupied. - pattic777

We chose the location due to its closeness to our friends and family. In this respect, that worked out well. I think that some parts of the campground are better than others in terms of what kinda neighbours you get. The staff is extremely pleasant, the main bathroom (near the office) was spotless at each visit and the pool looked decent.
The cons: proximity to the 401, low water pressure during peak demand, sites have raised common areas (so your trailer is lower) and the dump station is awkwardly located near tent sites, so if you are over 30 ft and there's a car at the first tent site by the dump station, it'll be challenging! - chantalcnrobw

This is an old park set up for old RVs. They can accommodate a 45' RV but it's not comfortable. Low hanging trees, narrow roads and sites. All of the RV sites are lower than the patio areas for some reason. Site 43 was just made a 50 amp site but we couldn't hardly access our basement storage due to how high the surrounding patio is. The sites are very close together with fire rings in bad locations. You may enjoy your neighbour's camp fire, loud music, family dynamics? We've never seen a park with a worse layout. Our pull through site was actually two sites back to back and all of the pull through sites are like this. The site next to ours did have two RVs, each facing opposite directions so that the one at the rear of ours had their patio on the mound, right beside our patio. The water connection is set up to service four adjacent camp sites. We needed a 50' hose. Also this campground is right on the very busy 401 hwy. Steady hum from the traffic. First and last time here for us. KOA Toronto north is a much better choice. - coehotrodder

The campground is well laid out, very well maintained, and upgrades are ongoing. It is convenient for visiting Toronto. The staff was helpful in recommending things to do and how to get into Toronto. The staff was friendly, but the owner tried to be invisible when making his rounds. He wouldn't even acknowledge or speak to anyone when meeting them on the roads. Certainly not a people person. The only complaints: The shower water was not hot enough, apparently trying to save on propane. Just barely warm enough to tolerate. IF YOU ADVERTISE THAT YOU HAVE WIFI, AT LEAST HAVE A SYSTEM THAT WORKS. It connected easy, but there was not enough bandwidth to even check email. It was that way all week. - dehdave

We hit town on a Canadian 3 day weekend so could only obtain a 30 FHU site when we would normally use a 50 amp site. Several OTA TV signals are available from Toronto. WIFI is always problematic regardless of park loads. This weekend the park was packed full and the signal was very weak, this is a recurring situation which the park seems to simply accept rather than remedy. There is also constant highway noise which had increased when the border trees became insect infected and had to be removed last year. - Bob & Stephanie

Not a destination, but fine for one night while traveling through the area. We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area. Got fairly close to restroom/shower building - the only 1 on site. Had appearance of having been updated with full tile on floors and walls but shower curtains are in need of replacing. Had a bench for seating, no rubber floor mats for your feet when exit showers, no hooks or shelves for your stuff - also none at community sinks area + no paper towels - air dryers only. (towels would have helped to reduce the messy area and campers would use them to keep area cleaner) no convenience items (aside for the nice bench) for campers Showers are adequate and hot Overall park is ok with fairly level paved (cracking asphalt) level sites and paved roadways. Sites close together, but not cramped each with picnic table & fire pit with narrow strip of grass between each - hey this is a rv park after all not like camping at public campgrounds although they have tent sites on the grass and under the trees, however not handy to the restrooms - dido
