When are you going? Many campgrounds up here are closed for the winter.

West of Toronto, Bronte Creek Provincial Park is fantastic. North of Toronto there is Albion Falls or if youíre more into that kind of place, thereís a KOA.
My recommendation would be to do Bronte and take the Go train into the city. Toronto traffic is hellish 24/7/365!

I would recommend any of the Grand River Conservation Authority campgrounds, in particular Pinehurst Lake. It's a short trip to the 401- the major route into Toronto and also close to the GO commuter train system if you don't want to try Toronto traffic. Here's the link to the site:

If you’re coming from the east you could stay at either Darlington Provincial Park or Glen Rouge campground.

Only KOAs will have full hookups if that’s a priority but there aren’t any that are close to the city. Toronto West KOA would be the closest.

Taking the GO Train into downtown Toronto is a good option to avoid miserable traffic and parking expense, but be aware that the parking lots will be near capacity on any weekday.

Once you’re downtown, there are a ton of things to see and do. Enjoy your trip!

Link does not work, here is hopefully a good one!

We agree. Glen Rouge is closer to the city and other amenities, and has huge sites. Darling is further out and away from stores, etc., a little more rustic, doesn't have water to all sites, but is right on the lake and there are lakeside sites.

Ditto on Glenn rouge...it also has the advantage of the one by train station which will take you right downtown with a short walk to the HOF.

Toronto campground

Agree on the Glenn Rouge campground. Take the GO train downtown and the Hockey Museum is a short walk from the main station.
Highly recommend the double decker bus tour. Plan to spend a full day on the bus.

Hello ... if you are coming next spring, then would recommend KOA north of Toronto ... as someone already said, most campgrounds are closed from mid oct to first of may.
Try Google winter camping ontario

Cheers

You could try Grangeways RV park and family campground in Sandford. It is north of the city but only about 20 minute drive to GO transit which will get you downtown Toronto

We have stayed at both Rouge and Indian Line campsites. Both are operated by the local conservation authority and are reasonably priced. Make sure to get reservations as they are both busy on the weekends. Cheers Ed

Welcome to the forum!


As HESN22 said there is the Cookstown KOA.

It's near the 400, 55km north of highway 400 and 401 interchange (Toronto).

Depending on your idea of amusement, there is the giant 400 (flea) Market and a big outlet mall within spitting distance.
Muskoka (Toronto cottage country, small stores, North America's oldest operating steam boat, etc) about 90 mins north; Algonquin Park (3000 sq miles) a little over 2 hours north of the KOA.
Canada's Wonderland (amusement park) less than 30 mins south.

I am not sure where you are coming from but if you are west of Toronto then you might enjoy Bingemans in Kitchener. You can walk to the new Go train which will take you right downtown in Toronto. Bingemans have a water park for the kids and the Waterloo area is a great place to explore. And your not dragging your trailer through th GTA traffic. Toronto has many attractions as mentioned above but Iwould check tourism Toronto to see what might interest you.
East of Toronto there is an awesome zoo.
I hope you enjoy our area.

We agree on Glen Rouge. Great place with large sites and close to Go Transit or TTC. We stay there when we go to baseball games and visit family close by. They have water but not sewer hookups but have a dump station and are reasonably priced. There is an extensive nature walk / hiking trail system too. Make a reservation for sure.

We stayed at Glen Rouge in July this year. Big site with power and water. No FHU available but there is a dump station at the entrance/exit. They have toilets and showers which are kept clean. These are at the top a quite a steep incline so if you have mobility challenges it will be difficult to access them. Once the trees all have a full canopy of leaves there is lots of shade and it also helps reduce the road noise significantly. Easy access to downtown via the Go Train as others have said.
We have also stayed at Toronto North KOA in 2017. That is abut an hours drive north of downtown but easy for Barrie. When it rains, this place becomes a swamp - including the obligatory mosquitos. Lots of road noise here and being a KOA, lots of kids.
