Jul 2016 - $39.00
Price reflects one night stay under USA amount. Paved interior roads and sites. Had a 60 foot pull-through, 30 amp electric, water, and sewer that worked great. TV antenna received 15 channels. The Internet was worthless in the evening. Good in the morning before we left. Need to cut back tree branches. Some road noise. Allows campfires. Somewhat easy in and out with a 60 foot combo. - Tallboy

Rate based upon monthly stay in 50 amp site. Nicely kept park in great location. Large park with paved roads and paved 30 amp sites and gravel 50 amp sites. Some 30 amp back ins are gravel. Would stay again after considering the following. Power at my site ranged from 128 volts to 131 volts. Talked to others and all 50 amp sites had high voltage but 30amp sites seemed OK. I would stay in 30 amp site next time. Monthly power charge was $111 which seemed high for Apr/May and minimum A/C usage. Wi-Fi was useless. - Kbob

Rates are reduced for weekly or monthly stays. The staff were friendly and informative with helpful tips re shopping. The campground was beautifully maintained and landscaped with fairly level and well-spaced sites. The location was convenient for visiting family in Brampton and the GO station with access to Toronto (allow about an hour). There were several conservation areas for hiking and access to the Bruce Trail was within walking distance. There was constant noise from the nearby 401 Hwy but it was not noticeable after a few days. Unfortunately, the wifi access was totally unreliable. We stayed here for 6 weeks and would definitely stay again. - rvbravo2

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

What this park lacks in upkeep they make up for with friendly staff. The sites were wide and long. The restroom facilities (shower and bathroom) need updating! - ETCTA

To call this Toronto KOA is a misnomer. It is 40- 60 miles away from anything in Toronto you might want to do. The staff is friendly, but they are new to the area and do not know anything about Toronto or any attractions. There is no cable TV, and we could not get one channel with our antenna. The showers offer little privacy. There are 4 washers/dryers, which cost $1.50, but no hot water. The Wi-Fi worked fine. We would not go back. - Capt.Deb
May 2015 - $34.00
I grew up in the area so my visit here in my own RV was a sort of return to my childhood. The park staff is friendly when they're here, so if you're one to require much of a personal touch you might be out of luck.
The park books quite fast with summer workers and regulars. Proximity to Toronto can't be beaten. This is the closest park to the city with access to major highways within minutes.
50 amp service is reliable. Drive-through spots are quite long but drives are shared between 2 campsites. My impression is that it's a touch overpriced but that premium is for the location.
Hiking trails and the conservation area are a treat for the DW and the dogs. I'll be back for sure as it's close to friends and family. - Outlaw Pilots

This Toronto and Region Conservation district campground is located one of the residential areas on the outskirts of Toronto. Though it is a campground that closes for the winter, it feels like a poorly run trailer park. Some of the seasonal trailers are very well kept, and some of them are trashy. We arrived after a rain storm, and our first site was a swamp. Our second site had had new dirt put on it that hadn’t been compacted so we sunk in to our axles in mud. Our third site was damp but better than the first two. We had water and electricity. The laundry facilities were great. The campground has free internet that is best accessed from the laundry building area, so I made friends with a fellow camper who has using a washer as a desk for his computer while I did my laundry. We had read in these reviews to avoid the side of the campground near the train tracks, so we did. We got traffic noise instead along with the train sounds in the distance. After a while you learn to block those out and it didn’t really bother us. That said, the campground was VERY convenient to the people we were visiting and the work we were undertaking in Toronto. Price quoted here is in $Canadian. - ShoreXplorers

We expected more. Grass wasn't cut, garbage on our site, fire ring broken. Lots of staff, not sure who was looking after the place. Pool was busy and clean. Another disappointment was the old trailers that appeared to be stored near us. Be prepared for 24 hr freight trains, rail line goes next to the park. Water park and drive in located down the street. We were disappointed considering this is run by the Toronto conservation authority. - The Allens

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

Our camping spot consisted of all dirt had to travel to grassy areas. so many bugs, quite the hike to get to the water....need to have bikes or car. - simpkees
Jul 2006 - $24.00
Wonderful place. Shaded, treed sites. Most were good size. Our area had a huge lawn off the restroom so kids could play games, frisbee, etc. Many of the sites in our area had huge boulders on them- just a quirk of note. Many people had dogs- very dog friendly. Great trails and lookout towers. Nice playgrounds and swimming beach. Tons of picnic areas. Our dog loved the special dog beach. It is a long walk from the campsites to the beaches though. Laundry was conveniently located in same bldg. as the restrooms and there was a sink where I could wash dishes. - siberian

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

This one is a hard place to give a rating for. The water area is amazing, awesome water slides, splash pads, a lake you can swim across and jump off cliffs. Site was OK, a little small but still OK. All sounds good until the train literally passes right through the middle of the property tooting its horn while screaming through. 2am my daughter practically hit the roof when the train blew it's horn. If not for the train this place is a 9. - barrie_camper

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
Sep 2015 - $50.00
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

Fairly new park with potential. Family oriented with weekend activities for kids. Pool has 1 hour per day for adults only. Basketball, horseshoes, volleyball are available. WiFi cost me $20 for the month, but is soooo slow. Management unresponsive to complaints. I used my cell phone browser and got far better speed. Camp roads are very dark at night with few road lights. Our son fell and injured his knees walking back on the main road to our site after activities. Camp shop has some general items. Nearest decent stores about 10 km away. Management requires every day visitor to pay a fee, this included my Mom & Dad who are in their 60`s and didn`t use any camp facilities! Again, this camp COULD be good in a few years with some changes. - CCCI

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
Jul 2007 - $30.00
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

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. - southernsky
Jul 2014 - $80.00
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. - Zoey and Reba

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. - wandrr
