Pine the Sky

7 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents8 acres · Southgate, ON
This beautiful spot was re-forested with pine a number of years ago, and was sectioned off from the surrounding farmland, which is now maintained by the mennonite community. It is 8 1/2 acres of wetland and forest, with a mown perimeter, and cool places to tuck into the forest for the night. The current owner was a special educator, and now is slowly turning the land into her homestead. There is a beautiful, spa quality outdoor shower next to a tidy and 'fancier than most' outhouse, a strawberry patch as well as wild alpine strawberries all over the property, a big dog and a small indoor cat keep her company. Here is what the land offers: -Bunkie in the Forest: A sweet 8x8 ft. space with new bunk and mattresses as of April 2023 -Strawberry Fields bunkie: an 10x12 space with a loft with a queen memory foam mattress and a main floor with a full futon and a small table -Campsites: Meadow, Forest and River spots. Close to each other, but you'd never know it! All three are chill and serene places. The property backs onto a ten-foot swimming hole in an otherwise shallow part of the Saugeen River. -RV Spot: With electric hook up ideal for RVs 30 feet and under -a connection to the organization, 'Black Folks Camp Too'! Welcoming to all!!!!! So much to see and do in the area!

Various bird species flock to our native trees and bushes, offering birdwatchers a diverse and enriching experience. You're welcome to bring tents or small tent trailers, but we kindly ask that large RVs and generators remain at home to preserve the tranquility for our guests, neighbors, and wildlife. Given the presence of wildlife such as Black Bears, Coyotes, and the Massasauga Rattler, we urge guests to exercise caution by securely storing food and garbage away from tents or trailers at night. Please understand that our responses to messages may be delayed due to weak cell phone signals in the area. We strive to check messages several times a day to provide timely assistance. As we work to restore our orchard property to its former glory, you may experience activity on-site from mid-morning to suppertime. However, evenings and nighttime offer the serenity and tranquility you seek after a day of adventure. We're excited to welcome you to our little slice of paradise at Orchard Acres and look forward to making your stay unforgettable!

The best camping near Sauble Falls Provincial Park guide

Overview

About

Just three hours north of Toronto, Sauble Falls Provincial Park is a gateway to exploring the Bruce Peninsula. The highlight of the park is Sauble Falls, which once powered a timber mill and generating station. Now, they’re best enjoyed by families and, come fall, spawning salmon and trout. There’s excellent fishing in the area and would-be anglers can rent canoes and kayaks onsite. On the smaller side, the park has just two campgrounds.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for families: The eastern section of West Campground is perfect for families. It has easy access to showers, laundry, and recreation facilities like the basketball and volleyball courts and the playground.
  • Best for hikers: East Campground’s easternmost section is next to Sauble Trail, a 2.5-kilometre route that travels through ancient sand dunes.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Sauble Fall is a small provincial park, with about 150 camping sites. If there’s a particular site you want (say, with a view of the water), you should book well in advance.
  2. You can make reservations up to five months before arrival. However, you cannot cancel bookings more than four months out. As such, should you miss out on a spot at the five-month mark, wait for a month or so when some cancellations come up. 
  3. Opting for a mid-week visit or choosing a less popular site (like one that’s further away from the water) will greatly increase your odds of securing a last-minute booking. And if you’re hoping for a truly last-minute spot, you can try calling the park just after noon on the day you want to visit. Campers who leave early will receive a full refund provided they cancel before 12pm on the day of their departure. You might just be able to snag a spot that opens up.

When to go

Sauble Falls Provincial Park is open from late April until late October. Like many parks, Sauble Falls bans alcohol on Victoria Day and for the 10 days preceding it. Canada Day (July 1) and the August Civic Holiday (first Monday in August) are two very busy long weekends for the park. Book your reservations well in advance to avoid disappointment. In mid-September, you can see rainbow trout and chinook salmon swimming upstream over the ledges of the waterfall to spawn. 

Know before you go

  • If you want to fish at Sauble Falls Provincial Park, you’ll need a license. They’re available from a number of regional businesses. 
  • Bruce Peninsula National Park is just a short drive away. The park is home to hiking, birdwatching, camping, and even bouldering. Those keen to climb along the shore might just spot the endangered Lakeside Daisy. 
  • Everything from groceries to hardware can be found in the nearby town of Wiarton. Just outside Wiarton is Suntrail Source for Adventure, a comprehensive outdoor outfitter.
