Hey Forum,

I'm new to Ontario. Just moved out here for a job about 4 months ago from Calgary to Kettleby (tiny town outside Toronto).

Can anyone give me some good ideas of Campgrounds that may be near lakes?

I also really enjoy renting cabins on the waterfront for a week or so.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Aaron

You'll need to drive a bit. Look at the Ontario Provinical Parks website for ideas and parks near you. You will really like the provincial parks.

Arrowhead Provincial Park is on a great lake. There are some private cabins near-by.
We are currently in Costa Rica in a cabin overlooking the Pacific Ocean on a small tablet so we can give you more suggestions when we get home.

My favourites are the Provincial Parks. Check out the website and try them all. Grundy, Awenda, Arrowhead and Bonnechere are some of my favorites. We enjoy McGregor Point and Inverhuron as well. The Pinery has fantastic beaches but is a little big and busy. Closer to Toronto are Sibbald Point, Mara, McRae (all on Lake Simcoe). Not Bad, but being so close to Toronto means they are usually packed, loud, and smoked out with charcoal BBQs. Try the Bruce National Park near Tobermory as well. The grotto is a must.

Don't forget that the parks here book up fast. The reservation system starts 5 months to the day in advance and opens at 7am. It's a little easier to get sites for non-hydro and tent only but you still need to reserve in advance. They do hold a small number of non reservable sites for last minute shows but they are rare and first come first serve.

Ditto on the Ontario Provincial Parks, lots to choose from, lots of lakes to choose from. Sibbald Point, Craigleith, Algonquin smaller lakes. All have different facilities, access to water etc.
The Parks website does have pictures and descriptions of the individual sites.

Arrowhead provincial park has a lake in it but it's not a "Great lake". It's an OK lake at best..

Can anyone tell me how to prevent mice in my A-Frame? I was doing a winter inspection last night and found droppings and chewed up cardboard and other things in the cabinetry. I took a look at the undercarriage and it looks to have some damage as well. This is my baby and I just bought it! Someone Help!!

I think Lake Phillipe is populated. Fitzroy Harbor is a fantastic for camping and hiking with a little harbour, and vessels for lease, etc. They're very good about noise.
