2 Parks near Vermilion Bay, Ontario

One of the nicest provincial parks we have stayed at. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Very impressed with the comfort station which was not only exceptionally clean but boasted granite counter tops. Lovely beach and incredibly clear water. Lots of hiking trails and a very nice playground for younger kids. About 40 kms from Dryden but we found that Vermillion Bay which is 9kms away offered all the shopping that we needed. Would definitely stay here again. - talbot

This was an unexpected surprise - truly a "10" rating!!!! A tiny little campground on a lovely little lake, just off the Trans-Canada highway with 5 super-generous, satellite friendly big rig sites! 100+ ft long level gravel sites with 50 amp electric and full-hookups (but not).
There was one BIG problem here though. Their water supply comes directly from the spring-fed lake and is not treated. The written rules to the campground noted this, and said that while they (the owners) were highly confident of the cleanliness of their water, the government compels them to advise campers to boil water before consuming it.
This would not have been a problem for us had we known in advance, as we would have arrived with a full tank of fresh water on board, and an adequate supply of drinking water, ice, etc. But we were not advised of this on the phone when I made reservations, and we arrived with less than 10% of fresh water in our tanks. Not enough for bathing, cooking, etc. And I only had a half-dozen small bottles of water for drinking.
We chose not to risk a GI illness from unfamiliar (to us) untreated water. So our rating of this lovely spot must reflect this unanticipated surprise. If they'd told me in advance, so I could come prepared (as I do when I know I won't have a water supply) we would totally give them a high score. - MerBee

As we drove into this small campground (28 sites, no seasonals) I commented to my wife that the grounds were so immaculate, that it reminded me of a golf course. This 40 acre property sits on a lovely little lake with a sandy beach (where we enjoyed a couple of hard lemonade before dinner). There is a 4 km hike, though we only journeyed to the lookoff point where the owners made a tree-log bench for viewing. There is a playground for the children, as well as Adirondack and zero gravity chairs for enjoying the tranquility at the sandy beach. Most sites are 100ft long EWS, but tenting is also possible. $39 for EWS pull-through. Washrooms and showers were immaculately clean. Unfortunately we only stayed one night as we were on our way to the Rockies, as this is a true gem. - driftdiver1

This is a completely awesome park. The owners have put so much effort into making this a welcoming place. You can take a walk in the woods, take a swim, sit along the sandy lake shore, play a game of basketball or volleyball, or just sit quietly at your site. Sites 1-5 are very big rig friendly. They are 100' long, pull-through, and paved. Other sites are nestled in the trees and work well for shorter rigs or tents. Wi-Fi worked very well. There is a well maintained gravel road coming off the highway into the park, but it is only about 1 km. The entrance to the park and all park roads are paved. - DiplomatTraveler
