Nice family campground with decent-sized sites. Trees in between offered privacy in Maples campground section. Some seasonal sites. Good-sized playground for children. Horseshoe pits for adults. Covered pavilion with electricity and tables. Camp store was only open on weekends but ice & firewood was available for purchase at gatehouse. Though no swimming pool, there was a small wading pool for children. Cell phone reception was available only near the gatehouse and not at the campsites. A 15-minute drive to Port Elgin where there is a Walmart. This campground is an access point (#11) along the Saugeen Canoe Route.

Another nice COE campground with large spacious sites throughout. Our site, #61, had a newer picnic table and large decorative stones/boulders leading down to the water. You could walk down to the shoreline to fish, whereas some of the waterfront sites are not accessible. Visitors were charged $3 per car. Peaceful & quiet family campground. Would definitely return if in the area.

The campground is divided into 2 sections, 1 on each side of Highway 31. You could hear & see traffic on the sites bordering the highway. All sites were spacious, well-kept, and offered privacy with the mature trees and hills in between. We stayed prior to the Memorial Day weekend and no reservations were needed as barely any campers present. No extras at this time either (pools, restaurant, activities were closed) but price reflected this. Saw several deer in the campground. Would definitely return if in the area again.

We didn't camp here but drove through the park to check it out while in the area. When we first entered, I thought it was a parking lot, as all I saw was asphalt with patches of sand in between and the odd tree. Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that this was actually the campground (the electrical posts gave it away!) If you like zero privacy and like to eat sand, then this is the place for you. Only benefit is the scenic location right beside the lake and sand dunes.

Spacious wooded sandy sites with trees and shrubs in between for privacy. Very friendly and helpful campground owners. Six unisex bathrooms each with toilet, sink and shower: great idea! Sandy shallow beach area along the Ottawa River overlooking the Quebec forest. Lots of Muskoka chairs at the beach to sit on and relax. Numerous trails throughout the campground forest. Many seasonal sites but all well kept newer units. About 40 minutes from Petawawa. Would definitely return if in the area again.

Stayed in the full hook-up section. Sites were mostly pull-throughs with a few trees in between and fairly spacious. Small beach area, but there is an outdoor unheated pool, wading pool, hot tub, and splash pad. Activities included tennis, volleyball, and shuffleboard ($5 refundable deposit). There are many cottages throughout the resort, but they were older, tired, and in need of repair (i.e. peeling paint on window frames) but did appear clean. Would have been nice if staff wore uniforms and had vehicles/golf carts that identified who they were. (Didn't know if it was staff riding around or just the seasonal campers.) Were given wrist bands to wear but since staff didn't seem to care, we removed them. Overall, a pleasant experience.

Quiet peaceful campground right across the road from Pine Lake, just about 10 min north of Haliburton. Several seasonal sites. Campground website needs be updated. It lists “fully serviced sites” but the overnight sites we saw only had grey water hookup and no black water (sewer) hookup which meant we had to visit the dump station at the end of our stay. Also, the website lists 30 amp service but our site had a 30 amp fuse inserted in a 15/20 amp box which still doesn’t make it 30 amp service. We moved over to a true 30 amp site the next day so that we could run our a/c and other items at the same time without blowing the breaker. This could be a great campground if improvements are made. The owner was pleasant.

Peaceful and serene campground nestled among the hills, with spacious open grassy sites and trees at the back. Very clean country-theme bathroom/shower building. Narrow unpaved single-lane road to access campground. Gravel RV pads and road inside campground. No children's activities, pool or beach. Free internet and firewood. Owner/host was friendly, helpful and regularly made his rounds to ensure everybody was happy. Good location for visiting nearby attractions. "American Mountain Theater" show was great: a must see!

Very nice wooded campground with spacious sites, some of which were on the lake (though no direct access to lake on most because of cliffs). Stayed in a back-in full hook-up site, but would choose a pull-through site next time due to short length of cement pad for both trailer and vehicle. Low water pressure for the 5 days we were there. Peaceful campground but not a lot to do for children. There is a small beach area and 1 playground near office. The restroom/shower buildings were the nicest I have even seen--modern, spacious, had a foyer with washers & dryers, section for books to borrow, individual showers and very spacious bathroom stalls, plus stainless steel sinks and benches outside.

We had #38 which backs onto the river. Site was grass and dirt surface but very spacious and had some shade. Hook-ups were at the front of the site which is odd for a back-in site. There is just 1 washroom/shower building located up a hill beside a small playground. No campstore. No internet access. Bundle of wood was $8.00. Wish there was a beach or pool in the campground, but they did have a decent walking trail. Campground is very close to Hwy 401 but couldn't hear much noise which was a pleasant surprise. Overall, a great place to stay while visiting the Toronto area.

Beautiful campground with a fair bit of shade, fabulous scenery, helpful staff and easy access to Hemlock Lodge & Hoedown Island. We had a site along the stream (check out sites B27-B35). We could walk down to the stream and splash around as it was shallow. Only negative comment would be the location of the H20 & electrical hook-ups. We had a back-in site but the hookups were at the front of the site and on the opposite side. Luckily, we brought extra cord & hose, but had to walk over them to access our trailer. Internet was available if you pay for it; otherwise you can find a hot spot at Hemlock Lodge. Their restaurant was very good. We had visitors to our campsite for dinner and there was no fee for them to enter which was nice.

We stayed here while visiting Mammoth Cave Nat'l Park. The campground is smaller in size and located in a farm-like setting which made it feel cozy and quaint. The campground hosts were very friendly, helpful and accommodating, obviously caring a great deal that their patrons would enjoy their stay. The bath house was immaculate! We felt it was the perfect place to stay while in the Cave City area.

Very picturesque and well-maintained campground nestled in the hills. Amish buggies pass right in front of the campground to our pleasure. We enjoyed playing the free mini golf as well as disc (frisbee) golf. Pool wasn't opened but looked great. Would be nice to have more trees in between sites and a recycling program for bottles, cans, etc. The only negative comment would be the 2 trails in the campground: Tea Hollow Nature Trail and Flying Squirrel Trail, as they were not well maintained nor easy for anybody to follow. They started out well, but then the trail stopped and you wondered which way to go, with no signage to tell you if you were still on the right path. This definitely needs improvement. Overall, a fantastic place to stay while exploring Amish Country...make sure to visit Berlin, eat at Mrs. Yoder's Kitchen, visit Amish Home at Yoders, and check out Breitenback Wine Cellars.

Well maintained wooded campground just a short distance from downtown Tobermory. Most campsites are spacious and had lots of trees in between for privacy. The only difference between the regular and premium serviced sites is that the premium are a little larger in size; none have sewer hookups. It'll cost a quarter to use the shower for 4 minutes. There's only 1 shower in each of the men & women 2 washroom buildings and there were line-ups at times. My only complaint is that they charge too much for extras. Each site is for 2 adults and 2 children under 18 plus 1 vehicle. Extra adults are supposed to be $9 per night, extra children $6, extra vehicles $7; however, I observed several times that management doesn't enforce their own rules about this.

Clean quiet campground for visiting nearby attractions like Seney Wildlife Refuge, Pictured Rocks Boat Cruise/Lakeshore and Oswalds Bear Ranch (all of which were excellent). We had a pull-through full hook-up site and these sites were the best in the park as they were large, wooded and had a cement pad and patio. Other sites were more open and grassy. The campground could use some modernizing and upgrades. Also, it would be great if they'd pave the roads, especially the one leading to the beach as it is very sloped and the gravel is hard to walk on.

Very nice place to park your RV while visiting the Pigeon Forge area. Only a 10-minute drive to the "Parkway" main drag. Well maintained campground and easy to access. The only disappointment was that the sewer connection was at least 10' from the water & hydro hookups (at all sites) so you'll need extra sewer hose to connect. It would be nice if they eventually build a bathroom facility for all to use.

This campground is located 25 minutes south-west of Canandaigua. (The GPS address is Canandaigua, not Bristol). Nice, clean campground nestled in the hills with mostly seasonal sites. All the sites seemed quite spacious. They have recently added some cabins which look very attractive.

We had site 32, was very large and spacious. There didn't seem to be a bad site in the place. All the sites were well spaced to offer privacy. Our site had a water tap behind it and we were able to connect a hose and fill our water tank. The area where we had our picnic table was a little uneven/sloped. I liked that each site had a garbage can for campers to place their garbage in rather than walking to a central garbage area. It was about 20 minutes away from the River Gorge Bridge attraction.

All the sites in sections B & C were beautiful, large and had plenty of trees between sites for privacy. Our site C32 had a good view of the lake and you could access the lake from behind our campsite. I would have rated this campground as excellent except for one extremely annoying thing. The front gate is locked from 9:00 pm to 8:00 am. In other words, if you arrive back at the campground after 9 pm, you are out of luck and can't get in! There are steel gates and no way to get around them. If you park your vehicle outside the park entrance, you may find your vehicle towed. I have never been to a campground with a rule like this. It is ridiculous to have to return to your campsite by 9 pm and it is also rude to ask your visitors to leave before 9 pm so that they're not stuck inside the park. We had to pass on activities with nearby relatives just so we could make it back in time. The park was almost empty during the week: now I know why. We will not return.

We reserved our site 6 months prior in Loop #3 and were not disappointed! Most of the sites (especially those on the outside of the loop) very spacious and had lots of trees for privacy. Would have given this campground a 10 if it had water hook-ups and better nightly programs at the amphi-theatre. (The ranger who hosted the program was reading from notes which made it boring). There is a nice stream running beside the road leading to the campground where you can go tubing, kayaking or canoeing. Wished they would have mentioned this in the campground description so I could have brought my canoe along rather than renting one. Overall, a great park and I would definitely go back again.

This campground is built on a cliff and that's why the sites are small. It's true that many units had about 8' hanging over the edge of the pad. We did see all types of RV's camping there including large RV's but it is difficult to maneuver into the spots as there's only 1 narrow road between. We set up our trailer beside the paved pad, not on it, as we wouldn't have been able to open up our awning due to a large tree. There isn't any privacy between the sites and they are close together. Sites 122 to 141 are the better sites, though some of the sites at the end of the loop have tent sites below them going down the hill (i.e. 135A, 135B). Some of the B sites were actually situated on the edge of a cliff with a 50' drop below.

This is a beautiful campground for nature lovers, as the sites are all large, well-spaced, and the trees give lots of privacy. Can't beat the price of $20 including tax. Our site had 50 amp and water, a cement pad and a round cement table with seats. Some sites are on the lake. There isn't a bad site in the place! We stayed here while visiting Nashville (a short drive away), and were very glad we did. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely return.

As others have commented, there is a steep hill to enter/exit the campground but our 21' trailer posed no problem. We did not find the staff particularly friendly or welcoming. The campground needs updating. The site we had was smaller and lacked privacy; however, we did have a little view of the lake which is located across the street. There is another campground down the street called South Shore which looked in worse condition than this one.

This park is fine for a one or two night stop-over while in Pigeon Forge; however I wouldn't recommend it if you want to have a peaceful quiet time at your campsite. This is because the sites are extremely close together offering zero privacy. The sites on the water were across a narrow stream from a multi-level building. I was glad that visitors to the campground were not charged a fee to enter, as is the case with most private campgrounds.
