I went camping here just on a whim, and only stayed one night. I was in the riverside campground which is not part of the main grounds. You need a keycard to enter. The sites are private and fairly big, with lots of trees. We were right near the washrooms (vault, but with no sinks)Very quiet, no train sounds no traffic. This park is very big, with tons of trails. We walked the lookout point trail which was totally worth the view. The bugs were non-existant. The staff I saw and talked to were very friendly and accomidating. The only downside is you pretty much have to drive everywhere. The park is very big and the pool is far. (you also pay for the pool but it is discounted if you are camping) There are lifegaurds by the pool at all times, and they play music! Overall its a great park and I will definately be going back again.

WARNING do not throw your money away on this camp site. Was there jsut over the weekend and it was the worst camp site i have been to. Were to start, payed over $50 for the night. Payed extra for zone that we can play music in. That wasnt allowed so that is the first part of the false advertizing. Second they said that there is abeach to swim in. False again is was contaminated that would of been nice for them to tell us before we drove down hour. But i guess they will try to get every dollar they can get from people, We also payed for asite with a outlet or electrical source and that didnt happen. When calling in the next day to the supervisor and asking them to be nice enough to offer something back for our terible stay they wernt helpful at all and couldnt care less. As well every additional car was charged 12 bucks for parking. Its pretty bad the world is coming to this owell. I learned my lesson and will never come here again. I travel the world been camping to tons of places and never complained before then you know there must be a problem on this resort. Do your research before you go here, i wish i would of.

Stayed 3 nights with my sisters and kids and it was wonderful. The showers were actually HOT, just the way we like it and the sites had a lot of privacy. Unlike, 3 other camp grounds we went to last year, we didn't hear any traffic noise or trains horns that seemed to haunt us all the other times. The weather was cold for August, so we didn't get a chance to check out the beach/pool. We hiked up the "Lookout Trail" which is 5km and was tiring going up hill, but the view was well worth it. Above our great experience, its only an hour from home, which makes it all the more ideal for us. Definitely returning in 2010.

The initial impression you get when arriving is that it's OK. Some sites are good but on closer inspection, you will realize that this is NOT what you expect from a provincial park. The main problem is the man-made lake. It smells bad, has goose droppings all over the beach and the bottom feels muddy (not sure what it really was). The pool is OK but you are not allowed to take any food/drinks along. You also have to pay a fee to enter the pool area, even if you are camping overnight. That is unacceptable since it is the only place worth swimming. The park is right beside Alliston and it has a public roadway going through it. This makes it relatively noisy. Some people keep coming so I guess it depends on what you are looking for in a park, but I would never return.

The park is actually very nice but the lake is man made and that isn't what a provincial park should be. Although the park is kept well and looks nice the major drawback and the reason I will never return is because it's literally located in the city, you drive out the gate and your on a very busy highway with all the noises you want to leave behind camping, all you hear is road traffic, horns, sirens, trucks. I can imagine the park was nice when the city was smaller but it has grown up and around the park..

This campground is small but enough for kids to do. They have an olympic sized swimming pool enclosed by a large fence. This pool is monitered by several lifeguards. The only maddening thing is that you have to pay to get into the swimming pool (pain in the neck). If you have a large trailer when checking in, you have to obtain a key from registration and go back out of the park and unlock a gate to get into the park (a little bit more of a pain). Nice lake, but Canadian geese have made it their home so there is alot of droppings all over the sand.
