Sparrow Lake Camp

4 sites 路 Tents126 acres 路 Severn Bridge, ON
Sparrow Lake Camp is situated on the southernmost tip of the majestic Canadian Shield.聽 The site is known to have been a campground for bands of the Huron people prior to the European intrusion.聽 It is considered probable that Samuel de Champlain, the first European to explore Huronia, spent a night on this site in the 17th Century.In 1892, what would become the west side of the current property was sold by pioneer Captain Thomas Stanton to Toronto's renowned Massey family to act as their summer resort.聽 The resort sported the main lodge, dining room, and cottages and was only accessible by train and steamer. From the onset, the Masseys used the site as a summer retreat for the Young Men's Bible League of the Central Methodist Church.聽Today, the property is a thriving summer camp that also offers overnight tent stays with stunning lake views.聽

Cedar Creek Forest Camping

11 sites 路 Lodging, RVs, Tents97 acres 路 Tay, ON
Welcome to Cedar Creek Forest Camping! Voted second best campsite in Canada in 2021 and ranked number 2 in Ontario in 2022. I have 97 acres of very private camping. The forest is a bird watcher鈥檚 and nature lover鈥檚 paradise. I have developed miles of flat groomed trails and a 3-acre pond (plus several bush ponds). The sites are spread around the pond and are close but not right beside it. There is an abundant amount of wildlife to explore: birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects and mammals call this home. There is a small swimming hole on the island but otherwise the pond is full of aquatic life. The sites and trails are maintained all year long and the forest is quiet and beautiful. I have planted over 3000 trees with the help of the Severn Sound Environmental Association. The forest is registered as a managed woodlot with the province and habitat preservation/restoration is the priority goal. Please DO NOT bring firewood for your visit. I have large bags of cured firewood that was sustainable harvested from the forest available. Invasive insects and disease can be transferred from imported wood. Guests are welcome to quietly explore the forest trails but are asked to stay on the trail. Many birds and animals nest in the forest. My campsite is family-friendly (and pet-friendly), and 420 friendly too. Guests can easily drive up to and park at all campsites. My camp site is tolerant and respectful of all humans, animals and things. The Yurtle structures were built from Hemlock trees that were cut from this forest and processed into boards, then engineered into unique camping huts. Large windows capture the glory of the surrounding forest and sun sets, while wood stoves warm campers on those cold days/nights. Guests are asked to remove excessive garbage and recycling when possible. Thanks for viewing and visiting, cheers and peace, Dave

The best camping near Georgian Bay Islands National Park guide

Overview

About

If you don鈥檛 think of Ontario as an island destination, think again. More than 30,000 islands dot the waters of Georgian Bay, rocky outcroppings along the Canadian Shield. Northwest of Toronto, Georgian Bay Islands National Park protects 63 of these islands. Most of the park鈥檚 visitor facilities are located on Beausoleil Island, including the main camping area, Cedar Spring Campground, which has showers as well as cabin rentals. The island also has eight primitive campgrounds, plus a cluster of rustic cabins at Christian Beach. You can reach Beausoleil Island only by boat.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for families: Cedar Spring Campground
  • Best for sunset views: Honeymoon Bay
  • Best for swimmers and hikers: Chimney Bay and Oaks

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. The 45 sites in the Cedar Spring Campground are reservable, as are the 11 sites at Honeymoon Bay and four in the Tonch North primitive camping areas. Book your site in mid-January when Parks Canada鈥檚 online reservations for Georgian Bay Islands National Park open for the season.
  2. You need a reservation to stay in the island鈥檚 cabins or oTENTik platform tents.
  3. Beausoleil Island鈥檚 other primitive campgrounds, including Chimney Bay and Oaks (13 sites), Tonch East (7 sites), Tonch South (7 sites), and Thumb Point (8 sites), are first-come, first-served. Get to the island early in the day to snag one of these sites.

When to go

Georgian Bay Islands opens in late May and closes after Canadian Thanksgiving in mid-October. Fall, particularly September through mid-October, is the best time to explore the Georgian Bay region. The weather is generally cool and mild, and the worst of the bugs are gone. In spring and early summer, the mosquitoes and black flies (which bite!) can be fierce. A good repellent is essential, and long sleeves, long pants, or even a bug jacket can be helpful.

Know before you go

  • Beausoleil Island has no stores, cafes, or restaurants, so bring what you need. You can buy essentials in Honey Harbour. Midland is the closest town with a good selection of services.
  • While Parks Canada runs a boat, called the Day Tripper, from Honey Harbour to Beausoleil Island, tent campers need to book a private water taxi to transport themselves and their gear. The park website lists water taxi operators. If you鈥檙e staying in a park cabin or oTENTik, your reservation will include your Day Tripper passage.
  • To reach any of the park islands beyond Beausoleil, hire a water taxi or go in your own boat.
