Oh, it is way to the west of London, Valens is far away indeed. Pinery is a better choice for sure.

P.S. For the record, I have nothing against Pinery I camped there a few times and it was ok.

We are REALLY looking forward to it.. When I was a kid, my family did a lot of boating (eg a floating RV) out of the Detroit area (Lake St Clair) and stayed several times in Chatham and Wallaceburg on the boat. What a great time for a preteen and early teen age kid.

Been boat and RV camping ever since.

"My Mom's family was from Westport, Ont"

That's about 45 minutes north of home. If you haven't been there in a while the main street has become a bit of a go-to area on nice summer and fall days. Lots of maple and birch around there and a zillion little lakes so fall color is spectacular and there are some really scenic backroads. (but some with tight twists and not flat - so not well suited to towing bigger rigs through) And there is some good camping nearby. If your plans grow to include this area PM me and I can give you some camp and tour suggestions.

If you are going to make it as far east as Westport there are several CG along the St. Lawrence River both private and provincial. The KOA in Kingston is a nice place to stay and a visit to Fort Henry would be interesting. Our base is 1 hr away from Westport. There is a Provincial CG just east of Toronto and Rouge Valley Cg is on the border east border of Toronto. There is a nice CG about 1/2 hour away from Niagara Falls. It is Sherkston Shores, located on the shores of Lake Erie. This CG is close to the Welland Canal.

To backup what others have said.

I would recommend the Pinery 1000 %
yes I said 1000%
https://reservations.ontarioparks.com/Pinery
I camped there a lot as a teenager and still do in my 40's

I can also recommend Valens it is smaller but very nice.

The DW and I, 4 or 5 other families camp there every Canadian Thanksgiving and listen to the coyotes howl all night long.
