Camping in ontario

I'm looking for a campsite in Ontario, near a beach (lake or river, it doesn't bother me), also I have a tent and I search a wooded site...
maybe one of you could help me? thank you in advance!

Top place, but you'll probably have to drive through Renfrew, if you don't kill yourself from how terrible this town is, you'll enjoy camping.

Kilbear is highly recommended. Sandbanks is also great, but very busy in the summertime. There is one near Darlington (Darlington Provincial Park, I think) that is not too popular but actually very beautiful.

Hope that helps.

Killarney is gorgeous and worth the drive. It's on a beautiful lake that doesn't allow motorized boats so it is very peaceful. There's one small beach and lots of good rocks that you can jump off of and swim from.

Pinery Provincial Park is like sandbanks (massive sand dunes), but has gorgous oak savanna trails as well. Been going there for years and love it!

Glad people mentioned halfway and killarney, both nearby my home and both beautiful. Other ones I like are windy lake and grundy lake. If you go northwest ontario neys provincial park is gorgeous I only went for the day though I don't know if you can actually camp. I've heard ivanhoe park is really nice too.

I was just going to say Killarney is awesome too, great park and if you want to portage and see a lot of lakes and camp on some islands it is a great place to go to.

Voyageur Park is where I go camping in Ontario. Granted, it's right next to the Quebec border, but theres a lake there.

(I can't compare to any other Ontario campsite, it's the only one I've been to.)

As someone already mentioned, Algonquin is by far the best but it's pretty far (like 4 hours from montreal)

Charleston Lake is closer and pretty nice too. good beach, lots of trails.

This is what I was gonna say. It's a great place to go camping with multiple people. The Park is enormous and accommodates everything from one person to a huge trailer.

My favorite spot is Bruce Peninsula National park.

Algonquin is my #2(and is also a lot closer to Quebec)

I didn't even think to check where the O.P. was from when I suggested Killarney. I still think it's worth the drive but if you want something a little closer you might want to look into Samuel de Champlain provincial park. It's on the Mattawa River, has 2 beaches and some good hiking trails. I spent a few summers there when I was a kid because I had an uncle that worked in the park but it has been a while since I was there last.

I kind of like Bon Echo. Full range of camping experiences there. Standard camp sites as well as backwoods camping. Beaches. Surrounded by lakes. Lots of trails, some with camp sites along the way

Beautiful setting but not too far away. It's about 90 min north of Napanee. About 2 hours ESE of Ottawa. Very easy to get to. Almost 5 hours from Montreal. About the same distance I travel from London to get there

The Grotto was bloody crowded when I visited. There must have been at least 1000-1500 people in that small area!

Bon Echo is amazing, incredible picturesque rock face, great lake with a decent beach, and it comes with all the facilities if needed.

My favorite places are Sherbot Lake and Silver Lake near Perth, Ontario. I went to Riverside-Cedar Park this weekend and it was pretty terrible, except for the St-Lawrence river which was fun to kayak on. But yeah Sherbot or Silver Lake are pretty cool.

Yeah, but there is a great ice cream place in Renfrew.

I second both Algonquin and Killarney. Killarney has the most beautiful sights and climbing Silver Peak is nice.

Cheers,
