This resort is everything that previous reviewers had to say - it is quiet, beautiful and serene. The staff can't do enough for you, the sites are large and private and the location on Hilton Head can't be beat. We were surprised that other than single washrooms in the clubhouse, which can be quite a distance from many sites, there are no other washrooms or showers, so you really are limited to the facilities on your unit. The resort claims to have a heated outdoor pool which certainly was not the case when we were there and also claims to have wi-fi, which simply doesn't work. We met many frustrated people who were attempting to connect, all without success, even in the clubhouse. They say that the system will be updated at some point but for the time being the only option is Starbucks, which fortunately is very close. I would have rated this a 10 if not for the wi-fi and pool issues. The rate reflects a 15% Family Motor Coach Association discount plus $1 per day for maintenance and $4 per day for electric - we were on a lakeside site.

We pulled in for a couple of days and are staying for 10, we are enjoying this place that much. The resort is very well laid out with large sites, washrooms and showers conveniently located so they are never far away. The clubhouse is stunning and beautifully furnished with a sauna, whirlpool, infinite pool and a fitness room with all the state of the art equipment you could possibly want. The staff are always available, extremely friendly and willing to help and offer advice whenever asked. Have nothing but positive comments about this place - wish there were more like it!

Basic campground in a quiet and convenient location with a pretty lake and paddle boats for rent. The owner Chris spent an hour with us after we arrived to brief us on local highlights, directions and things to do - couldn't have been more helpful or pleasant. Well worth a few days to tour the Bonavista and Trinity Bay areas.

This is a convenient campground in which to leave your rig and use the car to tour Gross Morne (about a 45' drive) if that's what you wish. But it is nothing more than a large open field right on the highway and offers no "amenities" and is anything but scenic. There is no staff on site other than a student who mans the check in hut during business hours and can't offer any help or advice. Would suggest that you bypass this campground and keep going to Gross Morne where there are many facilities and the highway is excellent.

This park is beautiful, quiet and extremely well maintained - the only reason it doesn't get a 10 from me is the lack of sewers on site and no Wi-Fi. We had a very large site next to the river which was delightful. A caravan with 20 units was in the park at the same time but there is an area set aside for them apart from the main campground and one barely knows they are there. The owner Levi can't do enough for you, helping with advice, reservations, directions or whatever else you may need. We highly recommend Triple Falls.

We selected this park based on the positive reviews on this site so we were surprised and disappointed to find out that the only sites they have that are suitable for a "big rig" are in an area that is nothing more than a gravel parking lot. All the more scenic or private sites are relatively small and have no electric or sewer hook ups. On the positive side the lake is beautiful, there are facilities for kids and the Wi-Fi works well - but you're still in a parking lot!

This is a very large campground with great open spaces for walking, exercising pets etc., but the few large rig transient sites are much too close together given all the space that's available in the park. Having said that, the park is well maintained and looked after and is very conveniently located relative to all the attractions in the Tobermory area. We looked at a couple of other campgrounds while in the area and don't hesitate to recommend this one as the best in the area.

We were very pleasantly surprised by the ease of access to the campground and the sites for our large motorhome - the sites are huge and quite private. The campground is well maintained with new and clean facilities and of course offers all that Algonquin is famous for - hiking, swimming, scenery, canoing, relaxation etc. Don't forget to bring in everything you're going to need, there is a small store nearby but for groceries and most essentials the drive would be about 50km.

This is a city owned campground in the middle of the city bordering Little Lake and the Trent boating system, but it is well protected by many large trees, is quiet and scenic. The city had just fired the previous managers when we arrived but the new people couldn't do enough for us, were very friendly and helpful - hopefully that attitude will last. Sites are large and easy to access, with a choice of treed or open. We would recommend this campground to anyone interested in spending time in the Peterborough area.

Although we only stayed for one night, the staff were very friendly and helpful, brought their mobile pump out to our site right away and helped all they could. They seem to have a separate area for transients which was pleasant and away from the full time trailers etc. There were a lot of activities for kids and all in all seemed like a fun spot.

We reserved a site suitable for a Motorhome but found upon arrival that we couldn't even get the rig to the available sites because of the dirty, narrow, rutted and pot holed interior roads. The Park is full of old full time trailers and is obviously not interested in catering to transients.

We booked a pull through site that was supposedly suitable for a large vehicle but it was extremely difficult to get into and no way could we pull through. Sites were very close together, the number of campfires at night made it literally hard to breathe, it was always crowded and noisy. I guess if what you're after is activity as opposed to a quiet relatively peaceful camping experience this may be the place, but not for us.
