Awenda Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada

Campground Review from Donna

I found out about this campground online and from friends, and I RV camped there in May 2008.

Describe your camping trip:

We camped here for the May long weekend with a couple of other families. We went on two of the trails, which were really interesting. The campsites were almost all private, good size and good quality. The campground was a good size for seeing most of it in a weekend. There was not much noise from other campers, no partying teenagers and the staff at the gate house as well as the store were friendly and helpful. The roads were in good repair. The comfort stations were cleaned regularly. Even though it was very cold and rained a lot on the weekend we were there, we had a great time.
Pros: Great sites, good variety of great trails. A few beaches to choose from including a pet beach. Nice staff.

Cons: none
Nearby attractions:
Further comments: You have to book far in advance, as for most provincial parks, in order to get a site.

Park is okay,reception is garbage, dirty washrooms, Member Jvercetti

We booked our camp site online, only to find out when we got there that they charged our credit card but did not book the site. We spent 3 hours there with crying kids trying to sort everything out.. Then we were faced by rude park manager who told us to shut our kids up and took us to our camp site.... there we were faced with dirtiest washroom and a dirty campsite.. When we asked for a cleaner site we were told we should have booked earlier... when we told them we already did they asked us for a receipt which we didn't have cuz we booked over the phone.. The park is very nice but unfortunately the service is horrible.. We made some friends there who also complained about park management saying employees spend their time watching sunsets rather than emptying trash or helping those in need.. overall one of the worst parks ever and unless you want to ruin ur trip dont go here
