4 Parks near Toronto, Ontario
Oct 2016 - $39.00
This was my second stay this year. Really like this campground - its so convenient and multi-cultural. Pros: close to Toronto activities and attractions; good shopping; bus at road; very safe; park itself is quiet; some internet; clean; pleasant and helpful staff. Sites are large and grassed with tons of old trees; a walking trail on the other side of the small river; dog park close by; Starbucks in both directions! Plenty of diesel stations. CONS: Fairly expensive; traffic noise at night; no septic - need to dump at station; internet is good if you want to get on facebook. can't even get emails, most websites are blocked! Used showers twice and both times the water was cold. No senior or other discounts offered. - Meeska

Quiet; you don't hear the traffic. Staff keep the grounds neat and empty the recycling/garbage bins routinely. Firewood available $ in park expensive, no fire rings. Green house 2 min drive on Kingston Road better deal and local wood so it meets local requirements. Water pressure is good, all grass pads, paved roads throughout, sites well numbered. Dump station at main gate, 5 min drive to shopping, Tim Horton, McDonalds, Pioneer gas and Shell station just out side main gate, a quick right turn all on left side top of hill. 401 interchange located there as well. - The Allens

Indeed easy access to Toronto. Pool was ok, with salty water. We did use the washrooms and they were dirty, even after cleaning (?). We had a spot in front of the restrooms, and heard cleaning noises, but we could not see the results of that. The hairs were still in the sink. One of the shower heads was broken.
Staff was vriendly. We did not use the laundry facilities.
WiFi was fast, but very instable. iPhone did not login to the WiFi.
The fire ring was a hole in the ground, which was, in our eyes, dangerous with the drought. - Bisan

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

This is a big park with many amenities such as a lake beach,two heated pools, splash pad and every sport field I can think of. There are separate areas for tenters, weekend RVs and seasonals. All in all I really like the park. We are staying in the seasonal area for the first year. It is only about 45 minutes from Toronto where my daughter and family are living. Close to shopping too. My only concern is that the tenters are in rather close quarters if they want utilities. There is a nice wooded wilderness area if you can do without. Staff has been great and treated us well. - Wild Kate

We loved this lovely quiet clean park. The best part was they gave us 2 complimentary entrance tickets to Upper Canada Village, which we used the next day and returned to the park again for the next night. - SharonO

We stayed here while our oldest son was competing nearby for his track and field. It was a really nice campground. Lots for kids to do with beach, pool, splash pad, outdoor movies, playgrounds, library, etc. There was a cute little store which the kids loved. A bit of a hike to the splash pad, because it is located in the park across the road for the seasonal campers. The washrooms by the splash pad/seasonal area were modern & lovely. The washrooms by the weekend campers were clean, but a bit old. The park was quiet on the 2 weekdays we were there, but got quite busy on the weekend. - User3551

We were disappointed with Albion Hills. The call center has no knowledge beyond what you can see on the website. Our site was supposed to be a 'short walk' to the pool. It was more like a 20 min hike (1 way) through the woods. The sites vary GREATLY in size. Some are huge and others are tiny. The pool was not included in the camping fee! Our three kids (10, 11, 14) were sent back saying that they weren't allowed in without paying extra (about $20 daily for the family). After I complained, the staff gave us free passes but having to argue for it was certainly was not enjoyable. Also, the pool and splash pad will fill up with busloads of daycamp kids. Campers should be aware. The fire pits were literally pits, just holes in the ground. Although sites were very close to one another, the campground itself was very spread out so it was too far to walk anywhere. There were only two showers at the closet comfort station. The dump station receiving hole was at the very limit of my dump hose. Lastly, we stayed here as a basecamp to visit Toronto and it was over an hour away. This was our mistake, but I don't want anyone else to do the same. - Hit The Road

I had a great time here. The campground has lots to do, the kids and I took bicycles and enjoyed the great trails available. Would definitely recommend it. - rw94

A very disappointing campground! We made reservations in May in order to be sure of getting a site that was easy to get into and included in our information was the size of our rig (32’). We were sent to a site that was very hard to back into and learned after we were set up that there were convenient pull-thrus available for the same price! Several campsites were overcrowded (10 to 12 adults and a few kids). Some inconsiderate campers chose to chat loudly until 4 am and others left their garbage on their sites when leaving The few staff who frequently drove around on carts to make sure that the occupancy card were on the posts ignored the litter and green garbage bags left behind. The fire pits were simply grates that campers had move to a convenient spot and most of them were damaged making them unsuitable for cooking over (we didn’t try). The picnic tables in our area were in need of repair/replacement as well. The chemical toilets were very dirty and smelly and were hosed out about once a day. The main bathrooms were somewhat cleaner but still not in the least appealing, especially the showers. To make matters worse the water pressure for the push button showers was terrible…a frustrating and unsatisfactory experience. The worst Conservation area campground I have stayed at in 55 years of camping. - Groveite
