We were on 348. Any of those would work. That area has some very large sites. The sites along the water are smaller though. Stick to the back two rows.

We just made the step from tent camping to a Rockwood Roo 19. We take delivery tomorrow RooWoo! We already have 6 separate outings planned between May 24 and the end of August.

Does anyone know if any Ontario Provincial Parks offer site specific hook-ups for water?

In addition, If we are planning to travel to the parks without any fresh water (in order to minimize the weight), do they offer a central spot to fill Fresh Water Tank and at the end of the camping Black Water disposal?

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new camper!

I haven't come across a provincial park in Onartio yet that has water hook-ups at the site...don't think they exist. There'll be water spigots throughout the campground and usually fresh water at the dump stations. We usually fill the FW tank there on the way in.

Hey Dave,
You missed Selkirk Prov Park on Lake Erie. It is the only one I know that has water hookups.

I had no idea about that either. I assumed none had water at the site.

I fill up at the dumping stations "potable" water section. If there is a dumping hole don't use that water. Typically there is another spot just ahead in the same location. The potable water is usually a blue hose stand and the dumping hose is typically red. The signs will help you.

You can also fill up at a tap inside the park if you forget or drive past the dumping station on your way in. Yep, done it a couple of times! Not recommended though as they are usually spring loaded taps and they are not hose bibs meaning you won't be able to attach the hose.

I have a 6 gal container for topping up the tank on long stays.

If memory serves......I think Cragleith PP has a few sites with water hookups.
Area D along the water.

As stated most PP in Ont. do not have water hookup. Plus I have found that most of the electric post are over 30 ft away from the site. I always have to use an extension cord. You can purchase a water thief that will allow you to get water from the spigots near the sites using your water hose. You might need 200 or more feet of hose in order to get water to your trailer.

The pictures of Grundy that you posted look great! We have booked for 2 weeks at the end of July We were there for 1 weekend last year and my kids definitely wanted to go back for a longer time this summer.

Nice pictures of Grundy. My wife's family has been camping there every year since it opened, we've been there every year for the past twelve years. Lots of lakes to swimming and fishing.
Cliffs for diving and best of all no motor boats allowed ...very peaceful. Loons galore !!!!!
