Overnight Camping Frequently Asked Questions

Overnight Camping Frequently Asked Questions

Great question! We know that it can be confusing, so we want to provide a quick snapshot of the pros / cons of each site to allow for you to pick the one that is best suited for your stay. 

Group Campsites: We have two very large campsites that are best for groups of approximately 8 to 20 adults (there is no limit for children). They are private and can accommodate tents or trailers. The sites do not have hydro or water hook-up at the site. A private outhouse is dedicated to each site. The site fees for our group sites are: $25/night site fee + $12.39/adult/night + $65 firewood (plus HST). 

Multi-Family Campsites: We have two campsites that are large and private. They are called The Pines, and The Cedars. These sites are best for 2-3 families who would like to stay on the same campsite together. The site fee is $49.50/night +HST for up to 4 adults, each additional adult is $12.39/adult/night + HST. 

Serviced Campsites: We have two serviced campsites (#116 and #120). These sites have 30-amp hydro hook-up and water hook up at the site. They can accommodate trailers up to 32 feet in length. You will need a 30A male / 15A female RV adapter for these sites (similar to this). The site fee for these sites is $65/night for up to 4 adults, each additional adult is $12.39/adult/night + HST.

Unserviced Campsites: We have a number of overnight campsites that do not have water or hydro hook-up at the site. These are best for tents or small trailers not requiring power. Each site is unique and we are proud to be able to offer campsites that are private and natural. The site fee for these sites is $49.50/night +HST for up to 4 adults, each additional adult is $12.39/adult/night + HST.

Park policies

Please be aware that along with our overnight campsites, we also have seasonal campers and cottage rentals within our park. As such, all amenities are shared among park visitors including the beach, play park, nature trails, and boat launch. It is expected that all guests are respectful to others within the park, including respecting Quiet Hours (11PM). 

Dogs must be kept on leash at all times when walking throughout the park. We ask that no dogs be brought to the beach. Instead, when it is not busy, dogs are welcome to go for a swim at the boat launch. Picking up after your pet helps to keep the park clean for everyone.

No, there are no shower or flush washroom facilities in the park. 

There are outhouses throughout the park to use.  

Bundles of firewood can be purchased at the park store. To ensure the sustainability of our forests in our park and to reduce the risk of the introduction of invasive species, no firewood is permitted to be brought in to the park. 

We have drinking water in the park that you can fill your water containers with. The water is tested regularly. Ask at the park store for staff to show you the location of the pump house.

You don’t need to pack anything special when camping at our park. Just your basic camping gear and goodies will do the trick! 

Water: We have two locations in our park that you can get your drinking water from. We test the water regularly. Bringing a water jug will be helpful. 

Electrical sites: If you are staying on one of our serviced sites with 30-amp hydro hook-up and you want to run a regular extension chord or plug in, you will need an adapter similar to this

Yes, we are lucky enough to have cell phone coverage in most of the areas of the park. Of course this can vary depending on cell phone provider and some areas are better than others. Ask at the park store for the best places to check if you are having difficulties. 

We ask that you bring your garbage up to the dumpster and recycling bins located near the main office at the entrance to the park. We strive to recycle all materials possible, so we ask that you sort your recyclables in to the designated bins. Do not worry – we have made it easy for everyone! There is a bin for each material type and they are all well labeled. All other household garbage can be placed in the dumpster. Please note that we only accept household garbage.


At this time we do not rent boats, kayaks or canoes. We do have a boat launch located in the park though, where you are welcome to launch your own boat from. The boat launching fee is $10.

Regular serviced and unserviced campsites: Each campsite rental includes the use for up to 4 adults (there is no limit on children). If more than 4 adults will be staying on the site with you, they can purchase a day or overnight pass at the park store. 

If you wish to pay the registration fee in advance for your visitors, that is no problem. You can make arrangements at the park store by providing their names and their arrival dates. 

Quiet time in the park is 11pm. In order to respect everyone in the park, we ask that music be kept low after this time. Songs around the campfire are always welcome!

We ask that ATVs and mini bikes are not brought to the park. This is because the roads throughout the park are narrow and there are many families with small children playing throughout the park.

If you are hoping to go on local trails with your ATV, you are able to bring it trailered or in the back of your vehicle. We just ask that you trailer it into/out of the park. 

We ask that you do not smoke or vape near the play ground, on the beach, or on the nature trails.
