7 Parks near Huntsville, Ontario
Sep 2010 - $45.00
If you and your kids are into cycling there are 2 main mountain bike trails and lots of smaller ones. There are 2 sandy beaches on the lake for swimming. Canoes and related equipment are available for rent. With the greenery of the underbrush and trees, most sites have good privacy. This was the third time I've camped here. We had two major thunderstorms and there was a few inches of water (for a short period of time) on the site. Not a problem for us in a travel trailer, but not so good for tents. Also, bears were active in the park this summer. One wandered thru our site as we sat in the trailer eating breakfast. The day we arrived I had seen one at a nearby site. We stayed in the East River campground. - revrnd

After a long HOT drive, we checked into this park - we should have kept on driving.
Office staff was pleasant. Computer went down when I checked in so I did not receive itemized receipt until a young man showed up at our RV later and asked me to sign their paperwork. That's when I saw the $3.50 "reservation fee". I told him I'd sign it if he took off the reservation fee. He went back to the office never to be seen again.
Sites out back are serviced, if you call 15 amps and water service. The $45 +$3.50 +HST (tax) amounted to $54 and change Canadian!! The full service sites in front appear to have mainly "permanent" residents.
Wi-Fi was free, but not usable unless you were very close to office.
Washroom appeared to be new, but the floors were wet when I visited each time - safety hazard??
I know the reservation fee is minor, but it is the principle. We showed up unannounced - we did not reserve, so why the fee?
I would not recommend this park. I certainly won't stay there again. - DCM/JMB

Campground was mostly full of seasonal campers and permanent locals. Sites were grass or gravel, with roadways being also gravel and dirt, which was a problem because of dust with every entering and leaving vehicle. Also, Wi-Fi was free, but not usable unless you were very close to office. Sites were partially wooded, but I managed to get a satellite signal and used a booster for Wi-Fi. Dump station was way in the back and hard to get to with my 32' motorhome. Office staff was helpful, but that did not improve the facilities. I will probably not come back here again. - judy_online

Although I didn't get the warm and fuzzies when I called to reserve, it was a decent park. Making the reservations was a little frustrating. I was given "yes" and "no" answers, had to calculate what I owed and I had to initiate an email confirmation. However, when we got there, the owner (who was the same lady on the phone during reservations) was very pleasant and helpful. The store didn't have set hours so when we needed something we had to knock on her trailer for her to open the store. That was annoying!
The Dump Station is 10 feet away from the childrens playground. That was weird. They didn't seem to have Sewer for transient sites but our spot was wonderful and clean. Right by the river. The locals were really friendly. The bathrooms and showers we found to be very clean. The whole park in fact. It seems like an older park. There wasn't anything fun to do except for the river and horseshoes. They did have a carnival for the kids that weekend and a Tiki Party at night. It was only for locals but they encouraged us to attend. The only thing that bothered us from not going there again is that the train passes right by the park and it sounds like its going through it. Our whole camper shook. Scary!
Would we go back....only if we had to. - Gabriela

Definitely a communication problems. Called two weeks prior to book for a three nights stay. Asked if we could bring our own wood, was told yes but was not informed there was a fire ban. Never told that the pool was out of commission before booking, when we did ask once on site, we were told that it was gonna be working hopefully that day, but the whole decking around out was torn out for repair, obviously was not a small fix and was not fixed by the day we left. The store was open at random hours, couldn't quite figure out the hours. We were there for four days and not once did the washroom get cleaned and never had paper towel or soap to wash your hands. Was quite difficult to figure out which site was what number and no help from staff on site. We would definitely not go there again. - melspring25

The park itself is beautiful, set in among mature trees. A sign warns of no units longer than 25 feet. Even with a 22 foot trailer, we found it difficult to maneuver through the park. The hostess was not particularly friendly, or helpful. The hookups are placed in the wrong locations, with the result that we had to drive into a back-in site, then use the next-door site to free up our tow vehicle. She then booked a fellow camper onto that site while we were away from our site. That meant that when we went to leave the next morning, we had to have the neighbor move off his site in order that we could get our tow vehicle to the front of our trailer to hook up. The dump station cannot be accessed by a 22 foot trailer easily. Although the camp itself is quiet and beautiful, we will not be returning. - Kaygee

Called ahead and said I had a big rig and was told it would not be a problem. I was given a pull through site. It was a tight squeeze getting in and there was no way I would be able to pull out forward when I left. The owner needs to do some major tree trimming through out the park to make it big rig friendly.
This campground is in need of some sprucing up as far as the facilities go. The location is great and if you have a smaller rig it will do fine. Definitely not big rig friendly as it is now. - cypressdrive

Although this park is not in immaculate condition, it is a natural hidden gem. We prefer wilderness camping over RV parking lot type parks, and absolutely loved this park. With mature trees and spacious sites you get a real feel of wilderness camping like at Algonquin park, yet you have 30amp, a pool (mind you it's pretty cool but covered in a greenhouse so air is very hot), and free wifi that worked! There is a small playground. Our kids had freedom to play and be kids here. If you are looking for a Disney quality resort this place will not be for you, but if you want a peaceful camping experience for families in a natural environment than this park is awesome! We will be back! We were in site C7 which is a large pull thru and had no issues getting in or out with our 40' rig. - Siaylaaa

Campsites are in a natural wooded setting; most seemed spacious with trees in between for privacy. As nice as this is, I found the owner to be unfriendly with poor people skills. Perhaps this is why the campground was less than a quarter-full in the prime of summer, yet nearby Prov parks were at full capacity. If you want a campfire, you must pay $10/bundle of wood, as no outside wood of any kind is allowed. There is a fee to use the dump station if only staying a few nights. Could be a great place with some improvements to the facilities which are showing their age, and with a happier disposition from the owner. - naturelover

We had fairly low expectations before arriving here after reading earlier reviews. We decided to try it anyway given that it is across the street from Santa's Village, which was where we were headed. The park itself was fine. The sites are really small and packed in, but there are lots of trees around, which made it a bit nicer. The bathrooms were acceptable - not the best we've seen, but not the worst either. We know there was a pool there, but we didn't go looking for it because we had enough stuff to do. The staff were helpful. Most people camping here have young children, and the go-carts from the theme park are a stone's throw away so if you're looking for a quiet place to camp, this isn't it! However, the deal they offer with two nights of camping plus two-day passes to the park is a good one, so it's worth checking out for that reason. - happy-camper

This campground is affiliated with Santa's Village across the road. It is all dirt and pine needles. There is no sewer hookups as they have been outlawed by the town. You pay top dollar for a poor site then have to pay an additional $5.00 to dump your tanks. The showers and restrooms were filthy. The worst we have ever used. The roadways are very narrow and you have to be very careful that you don't clip trees when using them. There are a number of permanent units there that are in various stages of decay. All together a very poor place to stay. There are other campgrounds in the area including a KOA. I wished I had stayed there. I will never stay at this campground again. - murph164

This is one of the worst places we have ever stayed. Muskoka Ridge is a very old park and it appears as though no upgrades have been done. We only had 30 amp, no WiFi, no cable, and at times the water was only a trickle. The owner just doesn't seem to want to put any money in the place. Even the picnic table looked like the original one from 40 years ago. The road was very narrow, with vehicles parked in front of their sites, so we had a very tight jockey to get out with our 40-footer. Maybe if you had a 30-ft. unit, you'd be all right, but we will never stay here again. - wallysmom

I have stayed here before and thought I would check it out again, the washrooms have not been painted for years and are very dirty. only 2 sinks are working the other one has been out of service for years. The grounds are not very clean, and the site are pityfully. the owner does not care about you or the sites just money as you see in his rates. I have checked out other parks in the area and they are all booked full, this one is half empty. So that will tell you something. Spoke to some of the seasonal people are they all seem to to be very nice and helpful. Could not find the owner, gate is locked and no one in the office. Is this really how you run a business?... the owner does not touch the sites it is all up to you to fix them for them. I must say thou the pool was clean. was not overly happy with the park or the owners at this time. not very helpful with the sites getting in or out of them. In the spring they are all full of water and the campers are not too happy about it.Our site that was given to us was full of water up to our ankles... lots of better parks out there. - wideopen

Not worth $56 a night for sure but it is the only one there I could find. The owners are very friendly and try to help. There is no WiFi and I knew that going in. The park is mostly seasonals with children playing. The site they gave us first was a back in and I would have to unhook. Being only there for 1 night they gave me a longer site right next to the swimming pool ( the kids playing ). It was a grass site with some gravel. The electric was 30 amp, water was OK. The sewer was a white PVC pipe laying on the ground dumping into a larger pipe. I would look long and hard for another place if going through here. I did and this was it. - nedmtnman
