Sept 14, Neys Provincial Park, Marathon, Ontario, Canada -site 13 in the #1 loop looking out to Lake Superior, dump station, Visitor Center, $42 with electric, bathhouse with showers, beaches This campground is located right off HWY 17 along the north shore of Lake Superior between Thunder Bay and Marathon, Ontario. Once you turn on the park roads it is another two miles down to the campground. There are four sections to this park. Sections 1-3 are located along the shore and many of the sites have electric. Section 4 is more inland and on the Little Pic River. There are seasonal sites here during the summer. We stayed for one night on our way from Thunder Bay to WAWA and it was first come because the park was closing the following week. We self- registered around 3pm and chose a site and within the hour most of the lake sites were taken. The beach in front of section 1 is a no dog beach but 2 and 3 pets are permitted. This campground is very busy during the summer months and reservations might be needed. Hwy 17 east is a scenic route going up and down hills and driving along the northern point of Lake Superior. Beautiful drive and a great stay. - gsnakehill

Area one has many fine pull through sites. Beware of dead tree branches that will poke through side of RV with ease. Park is very uptight about the dead logs on the beach, you cannot remove them. Also got scolded by park warden for picking wild blueberries obviously they have nothing better to do. Seasonal campers do feel that they have the right to walk or ride through your campsite to access beach. - too tall

When we checked in, we got the best site in this RV Park. Site #12. Surprised they honoured Passport America discount in the summer time. Made reservations but wondered if it was necessary. Stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed Pebble Beach and the geocaching nearby. - Barb McLaren

Price reflects Passport America rate, including tax. Campsite was decent enough with fire ring and picnic table. Noise from highway and trains. Bathrooms seemed like they hadn't been cleaned in a while. Water was almost scalding in the shower and you cannot control the temperature. Glad I didn't pay full price. - MSSW

Nice separation between sites with trees. Only 14 spaces. Good for overnight or bear hunting. Some highway noise. Small store. - suerover

The main road into the park goes to the day use facility. A small sign for the campground points to the left off the main road. The RV sites are both pull-throughs and back-ins. Two long pull-throughs are at the entrance and the back-ins are on the perimeter of a loop road. The rest of the pull-throughs are inside the loop. Tent sites branch off the loop road where RVs are not allowed. A few of the sites have a water view or access. Our gravel back-in site had a beautiful view of the lake. There was plenty of trees and bushes on either sige of our site for great privacy. Notwithstanding that our neighbours had two excitable grandchildren who we definitely heard, but we are used to that. The electric and water posts are shared. They were situated in the bushes between the sites. My electric cord was long enough, but I had to add an extension to the water hose. The sewer was towards the front which meant I had to extend my hose as well. All utilities worked fine. There were Cable TV connections near the electric post, but they no longer work. Also there is no OTA TV. The park has Wi-Fi, but it is weak (couldn't get it from our site) and the closer one is to site 4 the better since the antenna is near the dumpster. There is a playground and small beach at the day use area. Other than our little neighbours, it was very quiet and we would definitely stay here again. - Onemoretrail

This is a city park. It's really nice. Wide sites and very good wifi. Lake was very nice too. Good hiking trail around lake. There are a couple of other trails too. Full services. Not much else on offer in Marathon though. Might note that there are only a few sites in this park that can accommodate big rigs so reserve early especially if it's in the summer season. - jeffnbarb

A small city-owned park with all the facilities you want, full hookups, free wi fi, and free cable tv (though it wasn't working when we were there). There is a small lake for fishing, the restrooms are large and clean. Lovely spot for overnight (as we were) or for staying a week. Apparently you can get free firewood as well, we didn't have a campfire. - Ontarian RVers

We really loved this campground. They don't take reservations but we had no problem getting a site in July, right after Canada Day. However, it was the middle of the week. I noticed many of the previous reviews mentioned the bathrooms being out of service due to renovations. Well, they are complete and the bathroom and shower facilities are very nice and clean. Once of the attractions of this park was the hiking trails. Some are a bit of a climb, but the views are spectacular. If you like to fish, I was able to pull in 2 northern pikes early in the morning right from the shore. Be aware that many parks in Canada don't allow live bait. - Tony and Becky

We loved this beautiful park. Our site was level, with good privacy and separation from other sites. Most sites are spacious; a few are a little small. None of the sites can be reserved in advance. Fortunately, there were few campers at this time of year. The friendly kiosk guy told us that generally sites are available even in the height of summer. (This season was an exception because national park entry was free in honour of Canada's sesquicentennial.) Backing in was very easy and the electric post was within easy reach. One site housed volunteer camp hosts who were helpful. We got a brilliant low-season rate. Unfortunately, however, the toilet/shower/laundry blocks were closed for renovation. We took several of the interesting walks; they were not always well signposted and we had to search for the route in a few spots. We stayed two nights but wish we had had more time. - Ian in Nelson

This is a great National Park. There is only one pull through site, which we were lucky to get, but even the back in sites are pretty good. The sites are widely spaced apart and it is heavily wooded.
The park has many hiking trails that are great for the average person. 2-4km and not difficult. The multiple views of Lake Superior from the multiple hiking trails were fantastic.
The park water and showers were shut down in October, but since we are self contained that wasn't an issue.
If you have the opportunity to camp here, do it. - cagvc
