im booked for a GIANT family camping trip there this summer. they best not get their skins in a bunch and bugger this up for me.


Not a chance for that to happen .... that will be when the park is in full swing and full. Do you think Ontario Parks would allow that to happen? Ontario Parks thinks of only one thing, themselves and their money! Case N Point ..... when they advised campers in November on the Thursday they had to leave the park for safety reasons. Screw that ****, if you believe there may be safety issues, you send in a few more Ontario Parks Security people, but no, that would mean they'd have to spend more money. The people in Toronto have their heads up there you know whats, and this was a great example. Imagine planning a weeks vacation, waiting all year for it to arrive, get there, and than be told you have to leave, because of 3 individuals?? It was just poorly handled, and the people at Ontario Parks should be ashamed!

I don't know what happened but I was able to book from May 15th to the 22nd. Went into site 691 again as my son wants to dry camp down the road from us. He said put in up to 32 feet long and no problem. I'm 35 feet long and fit into 691 with lots of room.There are sites with hydro but we can dry camp and I carry 2 collapsible water bladders and a 35 gallon sewer tote. 691 is kind of secluded except for the road that goes by the front. I just park the truck sideways across the front of the site. So the Pinery it is for the May 24 weekend. Then out to Alberta in June until August sometime.

It’s nothing to do with the cost, it’s just not protocol. These days confrontations are to be avoided at all costs, it’s all about de-escalating things.

A couple years back I was at Agawa Bay and there was a large group of young men celebrating the end of an important Islamic observance in the next site. They had booked multiple sites to get past the number of people per site rule but in reality they were all tenting on 1 site. I knew there was going to be an issue when they started putting up multiple quartz work lights in the trees around the site to act as street lights. Those lights were not unplugged for the entire time they were there. There was loud talking, sometimes yelling and singing until well into the wee hours of the morning, etc, etc.

Despite multiple calls to management by many, many campers there was nothing but a single visit by security to ask them to keep it down. That worked, for as long as it took for security to drive away.
