Backus Mill buildings

Camping site 5

Our first time camping at Backus Mill but not our first time exploring.  Backus Mill conservation area has a full area of the past.  From a church, building from the war of 1812 and more.  Unfortunately the building are only open in the summer and we arrived in May.

The campground is well kept up even with the seasonal campers.  There were no refrigerators on sites outside and the yards were all beautifully landscaped.

The campground is not laid out well though.  The spots on the map do not totally correspond to the sites.  They seem to be all over the place.

There is very little sites with electrical outlets due to the seasonal taking most.  Some have water hookup too.

They do have a lot of sites without services.

The firepits are poor with the sides too tall for the fire to burn well

FIREWOOD:  scored well here just outside the campground straight half a cord is only $30.00 and it is nice hard wood

Close to long point and Port Rowan

There are very friendly at the park.  Lots of hiking trails in the park for enjoyment
