ontario camping

Hello All, just wondering if anyone one out there if from the Barrie or surrounding area and has some favorite camp grounds to visit that they might want to share with us. Does not have to be provincial parks. Thanks

Well,

I am not from Barrie (anymore that is) but we stayed at the Barrie KOA for 10 days this summer and it is very nice. Of course if you live in Barrie than that is a moot point. Another place we camped was Happyland campground in Kakabeka Falls. It is very nice there and lots to see. Of course that would be a 2 day drive from Barrie as it is just west of Thunder Bay.

Happy Land Campground

THose are the only 2 that we stayed at that I would comment on.

There is a nice provincial park is Sutton. It is on the other side of lake Simco. The name of the camground is Sibbald Point. The KOA in Barrie is very nice, we camped there several years ago. It even has a pizza palour on site that will deliver to your camper.

Had their pizza on a few occasions while we were there and it was pretty good.

Bryanne7...........

Are you looking for a campsite real close to home, or are you looking to travel a little? We've stayed at the KOA at Cookstown (HWY 400 and 89) and the KOA just outside of Gravenhurst. Both are great.

How far do you want to travel? We are 2 and 1/2hrs or so southwest of you but one of our favourite places is Grundy Lake Prov. Park between Parry Sound and Sudbury. We mostly like the fall season for the quiet and the lesser amount of bugs (I guess you know about blackflies and mosquitos already though). We have never camped in any of the private parks but all the prov. parks along that stretch right up to just past Sudbury seem quite nice. We often stop in to check out parks we pass on the way home just by asking at the gate and using our expired pass from the night before. Good luck and enjoy yourselves. Old Guys

thanks, Grundy was on our list to do this year, sounds like a great park. Wish the parks web site was up and running so we could book

Ontario camping

We are from Rochester, NY and travel to Ontario quite often. Our favorite camping spots are Green Acre Park in St Jacobs and Shalamar Campground at Niagara on the Lake. This one is good for scenic bike rides. If you are looking for spots in NY, there are many.

If you want to really explore eastern Canada, you should plan a trip to tour all of the Maritime Provences. We did that last year. We started in the 1000 islands, thru Ont. Quebec, NB, NS, PEI, back to NS, bay of Fundy, Maine, NH, Ma and NY back to Rochester.We were gone 6 weeks and that really was not long enough. Some of the most beautifus sights we ever experienced.

Being in Southern Ontario, we find ourself going states side more than staying in Ontario. The prices are cheaper, the sites are bigger, and the parks seem to be better taken care of.and of course lets not forget about the shopping. We have a jellystone 2 miles from home, we will drive 20 miles states side before staying there.
