Kenisee Lake RV Campground

This is a Thousand Trails park.  It seems to be hard to get a site close to the lake since they had become a seasonal park.  We lucked out and got one though.

The club is nice but does not seem to be used much since it is become a seasonal park

The pool is a fine size for this small of park

Clean and they have lots of weekend events

It is out on the country so you need to get your groceries ahead of time.

During corn season local corn is near and yummy

Letchworth State Park

You can see why we like this site

You can see why we like this site

This is one of my favourite Fall campgrounds.  The colors are fantastic with the leaves changing

The campground has a separate loop from the rest of the park and is situated a couple miles back beside the Gorge.  There is a store with lots of things for campers.

For firewood we always go out the north entrance to the campground to the right.  There is a farm market that has fruit, vegetables and lots of wood cheap

We always have more wood than we need plus it burns great

In town at the south entrance there is a fantastic wine store with great deals

In town as well is a restaurant with homemade pasta (no liquor licence though). They make great chocolate lasagna.

In town has an adequate grocery store and drug store.

We did have problems finding propane so make sure you are full

Our favourite loop is 6 but it is the farther of the loops.

Some of the sites are huge.

At Thanksgiving weekend (Canadians) Columbus day for Americans there is a fantastic craft show so you must book the sites early as they book fast

Selkirk Provincial Park

beach

beach

Heard a lot of bad reviews of this campground but found it fine. The trailer sites have individual water which is something I have near seen in a provincial park. Many pull thru sites but they were still large and someone private. Very grassy sites. The non electric site have some have great privacy especially loved site 7 in non electrical.
The beach was still stoney and had not been cleaned up for the summer. We were there mid June 2014. Very quiet very few children. The one loop had a lot of winter damage and they were fixing up the roads.
The showers were great

For wood for $6.00 you get a wheelbarrow full, paper and matches.  Just before the Selkirk sign on the left hand side of the road.

We have come to really enjoy Lakeside Beach State Park in New York State.  It is on Lake Ontario between Niagara falls and Rochester.  Many sites are on the water’s edge or in woods.  There are 6 loops.  Loop A has the most open view of the lake, Lake E and f are the furthest from the lake.  My favourite is D and B.  D has great sites with view of the lake.

Many weekends they have entertainment at the pavilion.  There is a fantastic golf disc game.

There is many on farms nearby with vegetables and corn.  There is also a butcher shop near the campground as well.  Near the campground there is many places selling wood from 2.00 for a small bundle to a large amount for $10 that will get you thru a long weekend

Point Breeze is close by with quaint restaurant and pizzeria

While the name has a beach into there is no swimming, you must go to Hamlin Beach 12 miles down the road

Golden Hill State Park

This is a small state campground with only about 50 sites with electricity.  It also has a boat launch but no swimming.  Almost all the sites have a view of Lake Ontario.  The streets are mainly paved and the sites are gravel.  Great for a rv’s.  There are plenty of picnic tables.  Two of the sites include a small pavilion great on a rainy day.

There is also a lighthouse that you can rent as accommodation or tour for a nominal $1.00 price.

Hamlins Beach is down the road to swim at if you need to take a dip.  Great for adults but there is really little for kids to do but ride a bike.  The hike trail is basically a grass walking path with little interest.

Elora Gorge Conservation Area

The Elora Gorge is located near Elora  on the Grand River valley. The Grand River rushes through the gorge, which has 22-metre high cliffs.

We were looking forward to camping there and doing the Gorge on tubes on August 2008.  Unfortunately the Gorge is not open when the river is high which is was our entire 3 days there.  It had rained with a downpour as we arrived to our flooded out campsite.    No mention was made of either the sites being flooded or the gorge closed at the gate.

We spent the days at the quaint village of Elora.  The town has antique stores, craft stores and olden days charm.

The sites in this park go from so small only a pup tent would be able to fit into it to a decent size.  You definitely only go to this park for the gorge not for quiet time.  Great for families.  On weekends when the gorge is open they have a bus service from bottom to the top.  Or you can walk it.  Beautiful gorge with some walking trails.

McRae Point

This provincial park is located near Orillia Ontario on Lake Simcoe part of the Trent Severn Waterway. Like all provincial parks it does not have water but most sites have electrical. 

The beaches are beautiful for sunbathing, boating  and swimming.  The park has a boat launch.    The sunsets are spectular over the water at night. 

Most sites are close to each other.  The park is divided into two parts north camp and south camp.  We prefer the loop north loop as we have a fifth wheel.  The tent site are better in the south side. 

We have camped twice on site 125 which I think is a premier site.  It is across the road from a seldom used dock which you can see from your trailer.

We have had site 95 as well which is a large site.  During a wet summer alot of the campsite were muddy and campers were getting stuck. 

This campground is close to Casino Rama for the gamblers.  It is also close to Orillia which has a great summer farmers market.
