4 Parks near Windsor, Ontario
Jun 2015 - $35.00
Store was understocked. Mini golf was extremely poor quality. No privacy. Bring ear plugs - Too close to the 401.
Located minutes from downtown, which was convenient. Sites are way too small and fire pit was in fair condition. Staff was accommodating but not overly friendly. We felt a little mislead by what was advertised on the website and what the conditions were when we arrived. - A_0

The cg is laid out in several sections. My lot was fairly level with full hookup. Roads are dirt and makes for a dusty environment when the wind is blowing right. Staff was friendly and helpful. Monitored the park on a regular basis. The park is about a half mile from Hwy. 401 and sometimes you could hear the road noise. but not often and not too loud. Appears to be many permanent residents. They were in an area of their own. A large pond has fish (catch & release). Wash room and showers were clean, free and large. Downtown Windsor is about 25 minutes away. I would stay there again. - eaf14131

We originally chose this park because of the proximity to Detroit and that was a big mistake. Crossing the border by bridge or tunnel was a major hassle. We will never even think about using this campground again and unfortunately it's not the campground's fault.
The facility was adequate and well kept, but if you don't play golf there's not much to do there. The sites were pull-thru and full hook-up, but they are all jammed in next to each other.
There is no park store on site in case you forgot something, but they do have ice and overpriced firewood.
The resort is filled with seasonal campers as well as park models, so I'm not sure the nightly rate reflects the lack of amenities. - semodan

Very large park, lots of seasonals. This seems to be largely a snowbird park. Our rate reflects an off-season discount of 10%, but it is still expensive. The transient sites are all pull-through but are back to back. Still, by parking the right direction, you can face away from your closest neighbor. The park is very open with only a few trees, and is surrounded by a golf course. We were here in the final week of operation, and the few other users all seemed to be full-timers like us, just staging to cross the very nearby US border at the appropriate time.
We would probably stay here again. - wandrr

This was the first campground we have ever experienced as we are newbies to the RV world, but not to towing long trailers - we routinely tow a 36 foot utility trailer. Park closes and so does the gate at 8 pm, so if you're going to be late make sure you call and get the gate code. We found out quickly that "pull-through" isn't the same as "easy in". The spot was very tight to get into, with narrow in-roads. Park was very clean, lots of seasonal trailers. Golf course looks decent but didn't play it. No garbage pick-up, you have to carry it to a central spot. Owners were super-nice. - MaRVey and the Monster
Jul 2011 - $60.00
We had the worst time here; so much so we paid 3 nigts and left after only one. There is no swimming, no playground, and they charge $45 a night plus $5 per child and I have 3 kids! Only one washroom so one person at a time. Sites have no fire pits unless it's a seasonal site. There are trees but not much shade at all. Check it out on google maps before you go; we will never return. Staff was very rude, but nice on the phone at time of booking. - biscayne

We camped here right on the shores of Lake St. Clair. Big trees provided shade and flowers were blooming. The campground is older but adequate and the hostess is nice and accommodating. The only con is that it is not 30 minutes from Windsor but more like 45 minutes to an hour. We would stay here again if ever this way. There is a fishing dock where you can fish just steps from your campsite. Everything in Canada just seems so much cleaner, especially contrasting to Detroit. - JWT

Park features a sandy beach that is sometimes closed owing to water safety (bacteria readings). Hawk tower is a popular observation point. There is also a large day use area for picnics, games, dog walking, or whatever. Trout pond for fishing. Nice recreational trail. Plenty to do in the area especially if you like visiting wineries. Sites start at $33 (unserviced). 15 and 50 amp sites are also available, as well as water connections. Some turnover in staff including a new park superintendent means some old problems have finally been addressed to the park's betterment. Enforcement has been stepped up. Parkview campground has been closed and is returning to its natural state. Marshview remains open and is frequently booked to capacity on weekends, so reserve well in-advance. 3/4 of park is seasonals. Very laid back and peaceful. Officers address any noise/rowdiness promptly. Lots are mostly shaded and of good quality, although not as private as what some provincial parks offer. Not all is rosy though: the comfort station is frequently closed on the weekends owing to problems with their septic system pump failing. Portajons are provided but many campers are disappointed to find showers, laundry, and bathrooms closed by Sunday morning. Staff are working diligently to find a permanent solution. Also, pedestal power can vary from site to site. Best to check your power with a meter or have in-line monitoring/protection in event of brownout. In conclusion and overall I'd like to say that in the last five years Holiday Beach Conservation Area has risen a few notches and is a fine place to stay whether you are a tent camper, RV'er, or seasonal. Both staff and guests are very nice to deal with. Highly recommend. - John-in-SWO

Friendly gate staff, camp store with basic needs, scenic walking trails, low user fees, beach. Initial impression was good. But there are no conservation officers - and it shows. The park office closes at 9pm whereupon the area becomes a free-for-all, supposedly with municipal police patrolling (we saw them drive through twice in the afternoon). The bathroom facilities consisted of a trailer on a platform (not handicap accessible) which was absolutely filthy. At the CG, the screaming of profanities, loud stereos, harvesting of firewood from the forest, cruelty to wildlife, etc. only left us wondering what it must be like after 9 when the park closed. Neighbors were pretty rowdy and we decided to break camp early and not spend the night rather than take our chances staying there overnight. Now please keep in mind that there are TWO camp grounds within Holiday Beach. We apparently picked the wrong one in our quest to get a spot close to the waterfront. There is a no-alcohol campground closer to the park entrance which is also resident for some seasonal campers who probably don't put up with any nonsense. The no-alcohol camp site also has a proper comfort station with showers. If you are a family camper looking for a safe and peaceful place to stay and not a carload of underage drinkers looking for somewhere to party with impunity, you may want to pick your campsite from the ones in the nicer campground closer to the park office. - John-in-SWO
