Top 10 Ontario Camping Spots
Posted on September 28, 2020
Owning an RV makes the whole of Ontario your vacation destination. But with so many places to visit in this huge area, how do you know you're seeing the very best of the province?
In no particular order, here are ten of the most beautiful, comfortable, and accessible camping spots Ontario has to offer.
1) Agawa Bay, Algoma Country
With its wide, waveswept beach and great views across the vastness of Lake Superior, this drive-in campground offers a stunning location to relax in solitude, despite its closeness to the Trans-Canada Highway.
2) Gordon's Park, Northeastern Ontario
This large park close to South Baymouth offers unmatched seclusion, even amidst the campgrounds facilities including a swimming pool and mini golf. However, the main attraction is the inky night sky, famed for its excellent stargazing opportunities.
3) Grundy Provincial Park, Parry Sound, Explorer's Edge
If you're looking for full electrical and other amenities to base your RV vacation around, this selection of camping grounds is a perfect fit, and is ideally placed for kayaking adventures and more.
4) Black River Wilderness Park, nr. Washago
As well as amazing natural surroundings, this full-feature campground offers a chance to connect with the area's Indigenous heritage through a roster of organised cultural programming.
5) George Lake, Northeastern Ontario
Take your RV to this campground in Killarney Provincial Park, and you can set up a base for exploring the area's spectacular natural scenery. And while you'll be firmly in the backcountry, the site offers enough drive-in conveniences to make it a comfortable stay all year round.
6) Mew Lake, Algonquin Provincial Park
Open twelve months a year, this makes a great place to take in some backcountry hiking, canoing, or swimming in and around the forest lakes. However, be sure to reserve a spot in advance: its location close to Highway 60 means it's often fully booked.
7) Slate Islands Provincial Park, Superior Country
Containing dozens of unspoilt wilderness islands, this park is a haven for wildlife spotters and sea kayakers alike. Don't expect much in the way of facilities, but in your RV home from home you'll enjoy full comforts in the Ontario backcountry.
8) Glen Rouge Campground, Greater Toronto Area
RV owners aren't exactly spoiled for choice with camping grounds in the Greater Toronto Area, but this large site has space for close to a hundred RVs with full service facilities.
9) Fitzroy Provincial Park, Ottawa
This large site offers over 200 spaces, some with electrical service, and many with waterfront views over the Carp and Ottawa rivers. Fitzroy makes an ideal location for kayaking, canoing, or just paddling in the shallows of the Ottawa river.
10) Silent Lake Provincial Park, nr. Peterborough
This full-service campsite offers plenty to do all year round, with 40km of summer biking and hiking trails transforming into cross-country ski runs in the winter months.
The sheer size of the province and the number of camping options available makes Ontario a wonderful option for RV owners, whether local or arriving from further afield. Any one of these sites will make a vacation to remember, and with an RV, there's nothing to stop you visiting several in one trip..
