We were looking for a CG in the general area to break up a long drive. We are self-contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a weekend in late October in our 8 metre (25 foot) MH. This is a very nice, clean and well maintained CG right on the shore of Lake Ontario. There are 2 loops. Sites below #46 are the 'old' sites where half are double-wide pull-throughs (2 sites share utility posts in the middle) and half are back-ins in a nicely treed area with shade and privacy. Sites above #50 are the 'new' sites, all back ins with few trees and full sun. All sites are gravel and mostly level. All have electric, water and sewer and the utilities work well. There is wifi, although slower speed than our cellular data. We had good ATT and Verizon service while roaming on Rogers. We camped at Fifty Point Conservation Area in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The CG is within a recreation area that includes a swim beach, marina and restaurant. There is fishing and birding. There are bike trails/routes leading to different sites in Hamilton. The CG is also a great location for visiting/ exploring Hamilton.

This park is very conveniently located just off the QEW (major highway between Toronto and Niagara. There's a new Costco and large LCBO (liquor store) 5 min from the park. Nice large area with walking trails, lake and marina. We stayed in the new section (site 62). The site was level with 50 and 30 amps, sewer and water hookups all in great condition. The negatives were a reservation fee of $15 added to our bill, WiFi that we couldn't access on any of our devices, constant traffic noise and a military gun range adjacent to the campground. We inquired about the WiFi and were assured it was working - but my iPhone, iPad and MacBook Pro couldn't even sense the the connection. Traffic noise is a function of wind direction so maybe we were just unlucky. The biggest negative for me was the adjacent gun range - it was in use all 3-days we were there with loud rapid-fire military weapons. Now in the midst of residential developments - I thought this training facility had been decommissioned years ago - but apparently not. We camped at Fifty Point Conservation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to Webster Falls. We went to the African Lion Safari, which was okay. But, nearby we ate at the Cookhouse which is definitely worth a visit. You might want to make a reservation. Try the Ridge Road Estate Winery and then drive to the Devils Punch bowl.

We stayed for the Tall Ships in Hamilton on Canada Day and did some winery tours on other days. The park is conveniently located, well managed and clean. We will go back. We camped at Fifty Point Conservation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

We paid $55.94/night CDN (which includes 13% tax) plus a one-time reservation fee of $14.13 CDN. Converting 1 CDN to 75 cents USD. CG is very easy on/off the QE Highway. We were in the new section which is very big rig friendly. Our site had 50amp, water and sewer. It was spacious, level and offered an open sky (no shade). All hook-ups worked perfectly. We had good Verizon cell and DirecTV satellite signals. Verizon data while roaming is slow. Park wifi was iffy. The online reservation system was easy to use and check-in was fast and friendly. This is a large property with a lake, marina, sports facilities and walking paths. While the CG area was clean, we did see lots of trash around the greater conservation area which was disappointing for such a lovely location. We enjoyed our time here and, if in the area, would be happy to stay again. We camped at Fifty Point Conservation Area in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Toronto is about an hour - expect traffic. We had mechanical issues and received excellent service from Sicard RV about 15 minutes from the CG. We also had pet issues and received quality care from Grimsby Animal Hospital about 10 minutes from the CG. Truck-style fuel stops seem few and far between so plan carefully. They're not typically next to a freeway off ramp as we find them in the US. We filled up at Flying J in Mississauga on the way to Toronto.

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. We camped at Fifty Point Conservation Area in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

About halfway between Toronto and Niagara, so convenient to lots of things. We spent our time in Niagara Falls. Enjoyed the Grey Line Tour (Rainbow-Boat, Skylon Tower, etc.). Great food at Antica Pizzeria in Niagara Falls. Beware of construction on QEW right now. Well marked but often required detours depending on time of day.

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. We camped at Fifty Point Conservation Area in a Motorhome.

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! We camped at Fifty Point Conservation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park not far from Lake Ontario. Large marina with a bunch of small ponds. We were in the newer section with lots of room between sites. Small planted trees so no shade. We stayed here to visit Niagara Fall. Careful if you travel Hwy 407 because the toll is very high for truck and 5th wheeler. We camped at Fifty Point Conservation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

The Canadian version of a State Park campground. Large area that also includes a marina, local restaurant (not bad but overpriced). Not much else in the immediate vicinity. Very nice area but surprisingly close to the interstate and fairly noisy at night. Pads were crushed granite and absolutely huge - probably 50 feet between sites. Good utilities. There is no campground host, you come thru the same entry point for the marina or day use of the park. Surprisingly expensive but very close to freeway - GPS coming into the park is off by one street. Good for a day or two. Forget going to Niagara Falls and head to Lake Niagara City. It is about 30 minutes and sensational - you can do the Falls later if you need to see it. We camped at Fifty Point Conservation Area in a Motorhome.

This park is a marvel, but the price seems a bit high. They have added several excellent sites in the past couple of years. The new ones have lots of space between sites, and have an excellent clear satellite view. Their laundry is inexpensive, though small for the number of sites. We have stayed here in past, and we will be back. We camped at Fifty Point Conservation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our first-time at this CG. There are two areas - the older area has less privacy between sites. The spots in the newer area are further apart and on paved slabs. The comfort station was clean and well maintained. Wi-Fi was good until the CG filled up - then slowed to a crawl. Water pressure was excellent. The CG is located close to highway for access to local attractions and restaurants (you must go to Memphis Fire BBQ). Niagara-on-the-Lake and Niagara Falls are close by. My only complaint is that the sites don't have good drainage. It rained all day Thursday and Thursday night and we still had wet ground on Monday. The staff at the front gate are very friendly. Highly recommended. We camped at Fifty Point Conservation Area in a Fifth Wheel.
