It's going to be a long 3 months waiting for camping season to get here!

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to get my Snow Blower out, and do the driveway again...
We are in Barrie and the KOA Toronto North not super exciting but for first trip out it will be great as you are 500m from an RV dealership if you need anything. Sometime try the KOA Barrie which is on Hwy 93 just north of Barrie. We stayed at the KOA Niagara Falls, bit of a parking lot but you are super close to Niagara, right outside the entrance is a dinner theatre that I highly recommend, not to mention you need to go to Niagara on the lake.

I live in Cape Breton and stayed at most of them. Stay a few times at the KOA campground at seal island and it is a very nice campground with great views. Have stayed at joyful journeys, English town, maybe the best sites out there right on the beach but only two way. Englishtown ridge is very nice, one of the cheaper campgrounds. Glenview in Whycogamah is very nice, family orientated with lots of activities. The two right in baddeck are ok, found them pricy. Macleods and Inverness beach campground are very nice, port hood beach is great if you really like the beach but found the campground itself blah, old parking lot but well spaced lots and grass.

The campground in New Waterford I like, $20 a night cash only for a three way site. It is aged but the owners take great pride and keep it clean. 20 amp service but my camper had no issues. Only downfall is the water has a very strong sulfer smell so you will want to have your tank full.

Never been to arm of gold but heard great things about it, everyone I camp with won't try it as it is a big open feild next to the highway. But those who stay there praise it.

The only Private Park we have stayed at in Ontario is Barrie KOA. The park is nice, we had the upgraded spots in the midway campground. The only issue with the whole 3 nights was some person with a extremely noisy Cummings diesel driving all day and night to the store, pool, pizza or shuttle visitors to his huge site in the back area with many long term seasonal campers.

Iíve heard good things about Ferris small but peaceful and clean.
By the time the end of Winter Semester I take a extended weekend off from work before we get ready for Summer at the College. We like the flat land and biking around the trails, can be cold but winter jackets and a campfire keep us warm! It is a shame the Pier was destroyed by Ice in 2014, hope it is back for watching sunsets.

Thank you for all the great places to camp on the Island. Next time I go home it will be a fun trying the different CG.

We'll be in the upper 70's here in N. Texas, so I think we'll take a run down to the River.

Here where I live, in the Florida of Canada, it's 9 months of warm weather and then 3 months of hard swimming . We start on the 2-4 weekend up in northern Michigan in a state forest. We've been dry camping there for 30 some years. Sometimes we get snow and sometimes we don't. We finish in October and sometimes we get snow and sometimes we don't. It was 15 below F here yesterday morning so the swimming was real hard. The Detroit river is frozen over in spots. The government forced us into Celsius so I rebel and only talk Imperial but I am byhandual so I can talk in both. I had to because of my former job. It's -2F here right now. Stay safe all.

Cold I can take just glad we are not getting that Eastern SNOW. Already booked may long weekend in Amherstburg Willowwood campground (close to home). At this moment we are looking for a few campgrounds to book 1st wk of July near the Williamsport Pa area (any suggestions). When we part from there we will spend another week in the Syracuse area (finger lakes) then home through buffalo/Niagara falls. With four families traveling together we plan early. In august we will spend 7 day Pinery prov. park(one of the nicest parks in Ontario in my mind, but you have too book 6 months in advance). Oh yes a weekend fishing trip with two grand kids to family weekend at wheately prov!! In addition to this we will spend a wk in Mich. somewhere and a few weekends chasing the son around who races 1/4miles track in grand bend, in fact he is one his way to Georgia now for the Georgia lights out drag. Happy Camping.
After all this we will winterize once again

That's pretty much the attraction for the Cookstown KOA - convenience... I know we'll need 'something' - and between being 15 minutes from home, and 2 minutes from an RV dealer, should be easy to resolve.

As for Niagara - we were at the KOA there last year; and really liked it - a little tight, true, but great facilities - my daughter loved the bounce pad!

I think i'll keep my Texas weather. Was a fantastic 72 over the past weekend. Was perfect for Galveston Mardi Gras. But today we had a cold front blow in mid 30's for a couple of days and back to the 70's for this coming weekend for a beer festival Saturday im helping out at. I dont care for snow and cold.

Consider yourself lucky to live where the weather is nice year long.
We don't all have this luxury !!

We love that CG, been there a hundred times, always try to get site 82 facing the treeline in front of the pull throughs. Always get the delivered pizza, order when checking in. You are right, some of the seasonal people in the back do have a sense of entitlement, but if I was paying $3500. for the season I guess I would want to own it to.

Love Presquille, we are always in the loop closest to the lighthouse and next to the water. Alot quieter than being at Sandbanks. Love the biking trails and the lane along the lake past the Host site. Also love Mew lake, we used to tent in the No Radio Zone, but with the TT always reserved a spot right across from the beach.
