Sparrow Lake Camp is situated on the southernmost tip of the majestic Canadian Shield.  The site is known to have been a campground for bands of the Huron people prior to the European intrusion.  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.  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.  Today, the property is a thriving summer camp that also offers overnight tent stays with stunning lake views.

Peace of mind
Absolutely beautiful camping spot. My partner and I stayed a week and wish we could have stayed longer. The hike in is pretty steep in one spot but overall not toto bad, depending on age and shape :p, canoeing items in would be the easier route and a free canoe to use at any time along with the firewood is a major bonus! In terms of privacy this was the most private spot we have hipcamped! and the amount of area you get to yourself is amazing. We brought our kayaks and fished, lots of bass and some pike, its nice when the lake is calm. The milky way came out a little bit and some shooting stars 😎. Super friendly hosts and very responsive! Going into town isn’t toto far if you need anything. Lots to explore in the surrounding area. Lake is weedy but we just cleared a spot on our site to dip in. Note the lack of respect some people have, soaked toilet paper rolls tossed around, and a towel thrown on the box privy, cigarette butts everywhere right in front of the firepit, baby wipes and random garbage in areas. We cleaned up some stuff but it takes two seconds to throw something out or make a garbage bag and hang it somewhere, there was also a blue bin on the site that you can toss things in and take it with you when you leave c’mon people!!. Highly recommend and can’t wait to come back! Thanks again!!

Brendan was very helpful and clear with his instructions about logistics and directions. The set up and location was very 4-year old friendly. Canoeing to our site on the lake was very fun for her and we had lovely views. Thank you for hosting!

'Final Campfire' Camp Site
The Final Campfire was great, the site was huge and private. The views are amazing of the main lake. The water is weedy so you can't really swim but there is lots a fish swimming around.

Final Camp!
We loved the scenic view along with the rocks. There was also a good swimming area. The canoe was a plus! Would definitely go again! The raccoons were quite cute, such a plus!
