The rate paid included the online reservation fee. While it might seem high for the services provided, the venue is really wonderful. Our site was well sheltered by mature conifers. We were able to reach the 30 amp power with our onboard cord, but on some sites an extension cord is needed (they loan cords at the check-in office). The trees seem close on the drive into the site, but if you know what you are doing with your rig (ours is 30') it is not difficult. Great beach, awesome scenery and a really worthwhile visitor center. Would love to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This provincial park is on the lake and a few sites have really nice views. Most of the sites don't have electricity. The elec sites are mostly set up for trailers and smaller vehicles. While there are a few sites for motorhomes 32-34 feet, there aren't many, and the trees are difficult to maneuver around. The staff could not have been better in assisting us. Our site was hugely unlevel and almost 50 feet away from the electric post and unreachable with my power cord. Yet, the staff worked hard to get us moved to an acceptable site and we appreciated that especially on a holiday weekend. The attraction here is the lake shore and the staff. The sites need reworking and should be better for this price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park doesn't have much to offer except a stunning view of Lake Superior. Nevertheless it was worth the overnight stay to be able to walk along the pristine beach and stroll along the wooded areas. The sites are very tight and you can't get in any vehicle combination greater than 36 feet. However, we were able to squeeze in our 24' motorhome and our 8' Smartcar toad quite easily into our pull-through site. There is only electrical hookups (15 and 30 amp) and no water or sewer hookup. There was a fresh water spigot nearby. Our little puppy wanted badly to romp in the lake surf, however no dogs are allowed on the beach. We would stay here again in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It's a bit expensive for a "state park" with just dry or electric-only hookups, but the location can't be beat. Our site was literally 20 feet from the beach and it's a gorgeous beach for sunsets! Sites are small and anything larger than a Class B/C motorhome will have a hard time driving between all the pine trees. But the campground facilities are well-maintained and there's a wonderful new visitor's center there too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground stretches along the lake such that about 1/3 of the campsites are next to the beach and the others are close. The beach is sandy but many areas this year were covered in small stones which made it difficult to walk in bare feet. The water of Lake Superior is very cold but the views and sunsets are great. The lake can be perfectly flat some days and other days there will be 3 ft waves - very impressive. The electric pull thru sites are not very level and some are very narrow. The roads are also narrow - about 11 ft between trees so it is not possible to turn long trailers or motor homes into many of the sites that are classified as large. Be very careful entering this park with large RV units. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When we stayed at this campground the bugs were horrible, but we came prepared with bug spray/lotion so they were tolerable. We stayed at a site facing the lake, and the sunsets were incredible! The campground has wonderful hiking trails and nice beaches. They have a beach for the dogs which is a nice idea so you can sit out on the beach and watch the sunset with your fur baby. Our site was very narrow so that we could not put our awning out. Most sites are this way because of the pine trees. It is very pretty here but not much privacy. Bathroom facilities were very nice and so was the visitors' center. We would camp here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Terrific sandy beach campground on Lake Superior with fantastic sunsets! All sites are shaded by tall pine trees, but there is very little ground cover so minimal privacy between sites. While some sites might be accessible by bigger rigs, most are too small. Great facilities, including a new, modern visitor's center. Dogs are prohibited from the main beach in front of the campsites, but there is a nice section of sandy beach directly north of the campsites that allows dogs. If camping in a tent or tent trailer, traffic noise may be an issue as the Trans-Canada highway borders the east side of the campground. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
A good location for a couple of nights to explore the area. Full hook-ups (30 amp) are back-in sites in the trees. Pull thru sites are water/electric (30 amp) only. Tight turning into pull thru sites, but they are open for satellite service. Be specific with your requirements when you speak to campground. Very nice personnel willing to accommodate your needs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 3 nights while coming out of the back country of Ontario. Very friendly little town; the staff at the park was very nice & friendly. Wi-fi was available with good reception. They have a pool, laundry facility, and clean showers which we inspected but did not use. I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a nice quiet place on the TC Highway in Wawa. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly owner and Wawa town is nice to stop in. Pool was nice although not heated, good playground. Shaded sites. However, mosquitos the worst we've experienced, even got through some of the fly screens. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground a little north of town. Friendly and helpful owner. The sites are shaded and we got a site that allowed for the satellite dish by asking. There is a pool and a hot tub. Wi-Fi reboots itself regularly which is irritating if you are on a site for a while doing something. Sites are sandy and pine trees drip sap on what is under them. I would stay here again. We enjoyed the place. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The owners were so wonderful. Hook-ups were great. Sites were treed. Clean. A wonderful place for walking our dog. If you appreciate nature you will truly love this park as the frog's sing you too sleep. You can stargaze for hours and if your lucky as we were we were blessed with watching a magnificent black bear in the distance. This was a place that we would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Owner is very friendly. Very open to change site if you are not happy. Sites have been trimmed recently. Didn't use pool but kids looked like they were having a good time. Feels very safe. Nice pull through. Happy with this campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Located on the Trans-Canada Highway this campground is several miles north of the turn-off to the town of Wawa. There is some road noise, but since the traffic level is low at night, it wasn’t bothersome. I received a very pleasant welcome by the female owner, who made every effort to assure that I was located in a site that best suited my needs. The Wi-Fi service was often very slow, and I was informed it would not work if it rained (possibly due to a satellite connection). The connection is adequate for email and light browsing. I used the campground as a base for exploring the local area. It is convenient to town and the provincial parks in this remote region. The laundry is not particularly pleasant to use. The machines show signs of rust on their exteriors and the laundry room was either undergoing renovation or had been very crudely constructed. The rate given is in U.S. dollars and includes taxes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good for an overnight stay. Sites are very sandy and some are narrow. We had to move to another site as the one we were given was too narrow for the slid-outs. Washrooms clean with lots of hot water in large showers. Wi-Fi was good but it is not secure as we found out when my granddaughter approached the male owner to ask for a code. She came back and said he was very miserable and told her there was not one. Wife friendly. Kids enjoyed the pool. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice owner. Very safe campground. Very accommodating. Washrooms are clean. Wi-Fi works well. Only complaint is that sign at entrance has some trees over it now, and it is easy to go by. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park should not advertise itself as an "RV Resort". When we arrived it was raining and the road into the campground had pot holes and were full of water. This campground was completely mosquito infested. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A convenient site for a one night stay. It is off the main highway, and has a provincial campground setting. It is well treed and the sites are quite large. The washrooms and showers were fine. The camp manager was very cooperative. It was very close to the small town of WaWa. I would only stay here for one night and would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent location. Nice secluded spot off the highway. Very friendly people own this site. Good large sites. The cleanest washrooms and shower facilities along the trans-Canada route. Has a pool. Would highly recommend this campground. A pleasant surprise. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Really nice, quiet location that is still convenient for the highway. Level sites but the pull through spots do not have a sewer hookup which surprised me because those rigs are the ones that need it the most. Well treed with a small fire pit at each site. There is no store but anything in Wawa is just a short drive away. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I would agree with the previous review. Good overnight stop. Pull thrus are very narrow, close to your neighbor. Friendly helpful staff. Don't miss the trip out to Magpie High Falls, Silver Falls and Sand Beach. The beach is huge and wide. It was cold and rainy when we went but in the nice weather it would make for a great day at the beach. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Has a dump station on the way out. WiFi is a little low but okay. Great washrooms and clean toilets. Very friendly staff and willing to please. Very safe, clean campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good Sam rate was $35.60 including tax. We spent one night here and were very pleased with the campground. We had a backin site with full hookups and we picked up the WiFi signal very well. There is no cable TV and doubtful air coverage. We loved this area as its very scenic. The town sits on a beautiful lake. The marina was pretty as were the two waterfalls we drove to see. The white sand beach is worth the drive as it was the first one we'd seen on Lake Superior that was really white sand. The owner/operator was very friendly and the heated swimming pool had beautiful tile work on it. Showers and restrooms are in one large building in the center of the campground. Showers are secure individual unisex rooms and there were about eight of them. If in this area be sure to go see the Big Goose at the visitor center on the hill. We'd return if in that area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Clean nice setting and a very amiable staff. He even offered to trim some trees if there was any difficulty getting in to our site. The one draw back was the 30 amp service. We read about the dumping situation so we arrived empty. Like it and would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When I reserved at this campground I requested a full hook-up, but when I arrived with nearly full holding tanks I discovered they only had water and electric sites available. Had I known I would have arrived with empty tanks. I selected this particular park because they advertised 'high speed Wi-Fi' available. In reality, the Wi-Fi was very poor to non-existant and always slow. Due to the encroaching trees, our site was barely wide enough for our 40' motorhome once parked and the trees made getting into the space very difficult. Consequently, we scratched the rig accessing the site. Additionally, we had to back out of the dump station to avoid scratching the rig on the surrounding trees. We won't camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice clean park. The access road is good. We had a nice long level pull thru. None of the pull thrus have sewer. Each spot is surrounded by tall pines. Nice and friendly in the office. Nice quiet country setting. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
For being in the middle of the Ontario wilderness, this place has free wifi. It's pull thrus are big rig friendly. And there's a picturesque river at the end of the property. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good signage to campground. Owner/office friendly and efficient. Rustic campground with many trees. Easy access to large flat and wide gravel pull-throughs boarded with trees on side. Pull-throughs are water and electric (30 amp) only. There are back-ins which have full hook-up. Other services on campground minimal. Electricity a little variable and water pressure erratic. Good for an overnight stop on the Trans Canada Highway or to visit Wawa and the Lake Superior Provincial Park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
