13 RV Parks near Sauble Beach, Ontario

We chose this park for its location, walking distance to the falls and the river for paddle boarding. While the park brochure and outdoor sign seem welcoming, the handwritten rule signs posted around the office were not, and the staff was not particularly helpful. In fact, if we hadn't already reserved and paid the reservation fee, we would have left and gone elsewhere. No WiFi. We were told there was a pay wifi (that the staff was not knowledgeable about) but we couldn't access it. Showers were available at $2. There was a 'security deposit' of $50 per site, refundable after we left. Give me a break - what is there to damage on a grass site? There was also a $8 reservation fee, not refundable, so in fact added to the cost of the site. Sites were not level, and on grass. There was a picnic table and fire ring at each site, with a $50 fine if you moved the ring. There was no dump station. We had a full service site, but there wasn't a second one for my brother's unit. Not a problem as he figured he would just dump on his way out. Wrong. No dump. In order to check out we had to wait for the office to open, wait for the staff person to call another person to go and check our site and then wait for them to process our deposit return. Fortunately we didn't have a tight schedule! We gave the park 3 stars, probably 2 more than it deserved for attitude and service, but there was a good playground and it had the location we wanted. We would never camp there again, we would go to the very nearby Provincial park which looked very nice. - D and M

We actually stayed at this Ontario provincial park twice, the first time when we arrived on the Bruce Peninsula and again as we were leaving. It is a heavily wooded park along the Sauble River at the lovely tiered falls. We were told that we had missed the salmon running up the falls by a few weeks. At the time we were there, the East Campground was closed for work, and only the West Campground was open. During the off-season, the camp hosts will check you in if you arrive when the office isn’t open, which is very convenient – though the camp hosts only take cash. We were running out of Canadian money by the time of our second visit so arranged in advance by phone with camp staff to pay them when they came in the next morning. They communicated this with the camp hosts and all was wonderful. Our electricity only campsite was large and level and had a view of the river and the falls in the distance. The trees were beautiful autumn colors which was an added bonus. Price quoted here is in $Canadian. - ShoreXplorers

Classic provincial park with rustic facilities. Two sections including one with radio free area. Weekends can be a bit trying with party goers. Park staff are usually very young and have there hands full dealing with the weekend warriors. Pretty area with direct access to the Sauble River and nearby water falls. Electric sites and water are almost all out in the open. Bathrooms are cleaned 2 times a day, but are not for the faint of heart. - Tybrooke

We had a huge site with enormous concrete pad, shade trees and privacy cedar hedge between sites. Hookups were good. There is a wide range of sites in this park, some much larger and more private than others. The grounds were very well kept. Roads were gravel and a bit narrow in spots, but were treated to minimize dust. The pool was OK but not luxurious enough for "resort" designation. While close to town, the highway is not safe for walking or bicycling so you need your vehicle to leave the park. Very quiet at night. Staff were professional and personable. Washrooms & showers were clean but need updating. - sue123

I would highly recommend not staying at this so called "Resort". Campsites are too expensive for a postage stamp site with zero privacy. Washrooms were disgusting. Service was awful. The owner is very draconian and feels like is a supreme despot/very rude. Overall our family along with two others will ne er camp at this location again. The town and beach are very nice. Unfortunately the camping was a huge letdown. - Yubbie

Carsons Camp is a beautiful treed and well kept campground on the shores of Lake Huron. The sites are concrete and level. My only negative comment is about the lack a useful park wide wifi. An very expensive system is available, but I would expect it to be included in a high end campground like this. - Dragoon

This is a beautifully maintained and landscaped RV Resort and Cottage Community with a majority of seasonals in everything from travel trailers to park models. It really isn't a campground at all, so if you are looking for a "camping" experience then you've come to the wrong place. It is, however, very clean and has plenty of amenities including a pool and well equipped playground and splash pad for the kids. Contrary to some of the reviews, in our experience the staff was friendly and only asked that we not put more wood on our fire after midnight. There are a number of great tourist attractions close at hand as well. The price is a little steep in my opinion, but given the proximity to such a popular beach town, it isn't surprising. For those who are looking to pinch a penny, avoid the camp store. There is a small grocery store about 5 minutes away and there is local firewood available for about half the cost if you go to some of the "trading post" type stores run by the local First Nations. - JJ Spectre

Big rigs beware. We camped here with a 38 foot 5th wheel and had a very hard time getting around the hedges that line all the lanes and sites. We saw others holding back hedges for the driver to get out unscathed. Not easy to get around. - stil

Landscaping is complete (reference to a past review), so we found this to be the quietest, and best-maintained park we've ever stayed in. It's a different experience with no evergreens: hardwood trees provide ample shade. The park has a residential feel, with luxurious sod and double-size concrete pads for each site. Staff was friendly, and appreciative of our positive comments regarding appearance of the park. Easy walk to the lake! Hubby loved the cable TV access; we didn't pay for WiFi (used our vehicle's WiFi). We enjoyed our week so much we're going back later this summer. - B and B

Very clean and updated sites with all amenities and many more activities.
Very far from beach and unless you are at the front of the park, all the activities and pool are at the front. Many extras that are not explained during the reservation process, like each person is an extra $20 per night. Only 2 adults covered under the $60 nightly site fee. Very expensive for any extras required. - kmnpcampers

Very nice campground. Landscaped beautifully, everything is very clean and well kept. Indoor pool. Charged $5.00 a day for WiFi for up to 3 devices. Only complaint; there was a tractor driving by all day long doing landscaping and planting trees in another area of the park. Overall though, one of the nicer Ontario parks we have stayed in. - Bayfield2

Town owned campground right on the bay. Good grass sites, well drained and flat. Office is a renovated train depot dating back to steam days. Some nice walks along the bay. A 2 block walk to downtown that gave access to several stores without driving. If you tow a boat there is an excellent town launch ramp right alongside the campground. - Billb1

Very nice park operated by the town. The only thing that keeps this from being a 10 is the lack of laundry. However, the town has a commercial laundry very close. The Wi-Fi was fast and powerful at our site (#1). Some sites (1 though 5) have water, power, and sewer, but most are just water and power with a convenient and clean dump site. The price of this place is outstanding. We will definitely stay again. - wandrr

Worst experience camping so far. Last weekend of summer with the kids and will never come back to this park. The advertising of this camp very misleading. Very old, outdated and very strong odors. Embarrassed to have my children here. Will go to a more respectable park in the future. - Lets RV

The only good thing for this campground was walking distance to the beach. Not going back again. - Born to camp

Great family owned and operated park. Extremely clean and friendly seasonals occupy most of park. Was Thanksgiving weekend here and we were able to talk to a lot of people who gave us great suggestions. We have already booked for next year. - JD62

This is a lovely park within Owen Sound city limits. Great multi-use park including a full-service campground. Sites are of varying sizes and some gravel roads are a little narrow. Trees hug the roads in some places too- we drove out the "wrong" way as there was no way we could make the 90 degree turn through the trees to go the "right" way when we left the park.
We highly recommend this treasure of a campground. We would stay here again for sure. - DCM/JMB

I cannot say enough nice things about this park and area! It was stepping into a Norman Rockwell painting. Beauty everywhere! Wonderful people, 5 gorgeous waterfalls, a short drive to a massive white-sand beach. Fishing, boating, tours, shopping, and dining in abundance. Something for everyone. I loved the smells and sounds in this park. It's nestled in a wooded ravine where a river runs past the r.v. sites. There is a little bird sanctuary nearby. You can hear the gentle rustling of the leaves, the rushing water and the cry of an occasional bird. There are trees everywhere. There is a walk that takes you through an almost primeval forest. The park offers a lovely restaurant, childrens play area, pool, wading pool, boating, fishing, and mini golf. Picnic areas everywhere. We were there when a national dog show was going on. Enjoyed ourselves immensely! - penny & Ron White

This is in a city park. Campground is the older type with newer rigs trying to fit, many people have many cars at their site. If there is a vacant spot, it will be a camping site. Few big sites. Picnic table and fire ring (might be close to you or the next site). Stream runs past on one side and creek runs in middle. Has a nice restaurant in the Park and the pool looked nice. Can rent paddle boats or play miniature golf. Has caged pheasants and geese. Easy to get to dump station. Some walking and biking trails. - pegdiver

Campsite in Algonquin section were big and spacious. Neighbours not too close. Lots of trees and shade. Electrical outlets are far away. My 50' cord wouldn't reach. My B.I.L. had an extra 25' and that made it. - crunch27

This campground is AMAZING! They are open all year long! It is a huge campground with various levels of privacy and can accommodate large camping groups too. The size of the lots will vary based on accommodation type (30'+ RV versus tent).
The online reservations site is extremely user friendly and they shows multiple pictures for each site so you can see what you are getting before you get there. Their website also gives a good description of the type of site you are booking (i.e., full/partial sun vs shaded, level of privacy, etc.).
They have huge bike/walking trails. They have a general store that offers a great variety of goodies. You can rent bikes of various sizes. Their beach is AMAZING! Bathrooms are super clean and are checked on multiple times a day. They gates are open until 11 pm. They are not far from the Port Elgin beach and the town has a lot of box stores and great restaurants if you want a night off from cooking.
The staff are always smiling and extremely pleasant and accommodating.
Lots of wild life to see and hear (turtles, frogs, variety of birds singing, raccoons, chipmunks, squirrels).
All around.... you just will not be disappointed. - Salen

The park needs a good cleaning up. Trash was laying around in several areas (shame on the campers). This park is a nightmare for a large rig. Limbs need to be trimmed on roads and at sites. I booked a site for a unit over 32' and had a 2" limb about 20' from the entrance of my sight at a height of about 10'. Instead of workers driving around they should try to work at making this park the jewel it should be. Our RV is 40' long. - illini777
