4 Parks near Massey, Ontario
Sep 2016 - $32.00
We visited this provincial park in late September, so it was closing down for the year. There was a self-pay kiosk and a site with electricity was $42.00 Canadian. The weather was still great so the park was busy despite the lack of staff. There were 4 camping loops, 2 with electricity and 2 without. There is water available in the park but no water or sewer hook-ups. Most sites are back-in. The camping sites are nothing special, dirt with 30 amp power. But the walking in the park is exceptional since the park includes a very large area of waterfalls and waterfront where you can walk/hike/fish/explore. Our dogs loved it. And we enjoyed the beautiful property and peaceful area. - virginianola

Rate is in Canadian Dollars. We were in Area A. Very Large Sites, We have 40' 5th Wheel and had more than enough room. The only downside was that it was easier to back into the site by going around the loop in the wrong direction, but no problems. The even numbered sites are easily accessed going in the right direction.
There is no water to the site but potable water available at spigots throughout the park. Roads are narrow with the odd overhanging tree, no issues but be aware. - MDM

Arrived here without reservations and was pleasantly surprised to find many available spaces. Staff were very pleasant to deal with. Roads in the campground are a little tight for motorhome with dinghy and we were advised to unhook before going to our site. Sites are huge with plenty of space between them. Only negative was the electrical hookup was out of reach of our power cord which required the use of an extension, the proper 30 Amp one which we didn't have, leaving us to use regular extension with an adapter. This is a wonderful place, the natural surroundings are spectacular, including swimming hole, hiking trails and wildlife. Bear alert in effect at time but didn't see any. - BillandEila

This is not a resort at all! A campground, no more, no less. Our rating is simple to explain: 1 is the least you can rate, then this campgrounds earns one point each for the gorgeous view over the lake and the very silence at night. Other than that it's just ridiculous what you get for your money (No discounts whatsoever). Our back in site was the most unlevel we ever stayed in, sloped from front to back and side to side. The electrical hookup (15 amp) is flimsy, the water hookup OK. No sewer, no Wi-Fi, no cable. No privacy at all, nothing between the sites. The road to the campground is a 1.5km bumpy gravel road, inside the campground it's narrow but manageable. However, if the opposite sites of yours are occupied, backing in might become a bit tricky. Our 5th wheel is 34 feet and we did just OK. We had a peak inside the washrooms but didn't have the courage to use them, so we left the place unharmed. We won't return, if you want to stay there, don't use the website's official address because your GPS will send you somewhere in the outskirts of Espanola. The problem is known by the owner but doesn't seem to care about it. From the Trans Canada Hwy take Hwy 6 through Espanola and turn right at the large "Lake Apsey Resort" sign on the right about 5 km past Espanola. - TheSchweitzers

This park caters more to full timers or seasonal campers. Not worth the trip if you are a larger RV or motor home.
Next time we'll keep driving, if this is the best the island has to offer we'll stay elsewhere.
30amp power. Sewer available, some sites it must flow uphill. - birdbrains

Very dusty 1/4-mile narrow road leading in, as well as dust within the park. This campground was built in the 60's evidently for pop-ups and tents. Our 40-ft. motorhome barely fit in a 30-amp w/e site. Only 8 sites had sewer and we booked 2 months ago and couldn't get one. We couldn't get water our last night there, which they fixed with a new filter on their system; then the next morning we were out of water again. They advertised free wifi, but the only place you could connect was at the rec hall. It appeared to be a good family place with a nice beach and small marina. There didn't seem to be many campgrounds to choose from in the area, and it was a good location for exploring Manitoulin, but we won't stay there again. - wallysmom

Great family campground. Polite and courteous staff. Always helpful. Rec hall, badminton and shuffle board. Good size sites and fairly private. Small marina with kayak, canoe and small boat rentals. Two good playgrounds for children. Full service store. We have camped here often and will continue to return. - lombardyon

Sites were not very even and were gravel with a lot of grass growing through. When we leveled our 39 foot motorhome the front end was so low that the steps would not open fully. Since we were only staying 1 night we did not bother trying to add pads and re-leveling. When we were ready to leave in the morning it looked like it would be difficult to get out of our pull-through site as the trailer next door had stayed hooked to its tow vehicle and it looked like it would be tight squeeze to get past the vehicle and the post marking the site across the very narrow road. Luckily the trailer across from us pulled out and we were able to cut through their site. We were able to get satellite TV and our Verizon was strong. Campground was OK for spending the night while passing through. - Ramblin On

Very nice park on hwy 17. Lots of seasonal campers but the sites were all well maintained and the park was quiet. Nice playground and pool and a good dog walk area. The lady in the office was very friendly and they have a well equipped store for supplies. Road noise was not an issue. There is a train that goes past twice a day. We would stay here again. - 69636

Very nice campground right on Highway 17. Nice friendly easy checkin. Security gates at entrance. Gravel roads and grass/gravel pads with lots of grass between pads. Easy access with large, long, spacious pull thrus. There are two sections to the park - the back section is seasonal and the front section is short term. The sections are separated by the pool and large playground. The wi-fi was fast but a little difficult to sign in at startup and did cut out a couple of times.
NEGATIVES: Lots of highway noise that did lighten up after dark. We had to sleep with windows closed and a small fan on for white noise. The water pressure was quite low.
This was a great overnight stay and we would definitely stay again. - lyzzards
