What is there to do in the area? What activities do you have at the campground?
How far in advance should I make a reservation?
We accept reservations up to one year in advance. Popular weekends and sites may book up very early so the sooner you reserve, the better chance you have to get your preferred site. Remember, we do not process your credit card unless you fail to adhere to our cancellation policy.
Does your campground allow dogs?
Yes, we allow pets as long as you keep them under your control at all times and clean up after them.
Can our dog stay in the rental trailer?
No, many people are allergic to pet dander so we are very firm about not allowing pets in any of the rental units.
Can I take my dog on the scenic boat tour?
Pets can go on a boat tour only if it does not bother other passengers and the Captain approves. (Your pets size & temperament and available space on the boat are factors)
Do the campsites have fire pits and picnic tables?
Yes, all of our campsites have fire pits and picnic tables, with the exception of site 19 which does not have a fire pit. We also have cooking grills available free of charge at the office.
Can we put more than one tent on a campsite?
Yes, but your equipment must not be in the way for other campsites or pathways and a fee for additional persons must be paid if you have more than four persons on your campsite.
Can we have more than one vehicle on our campsite?
No, but there is parking available near the office. If you also have an additional tent on your campsite, you will be required to pay for an additional site.
Can I reserve a serviced site with just a tent?
Yes, we have several campsites which are suitable for tents requiring electricity.
Do the RV sites have sewer hookup?
No, but we do have a dump station which is available for free use on any stay of 2 or more nights.
Can I access wireless internet from my campsite?
Most of our campsites are within range of the access point. However, if you cannot access the internet from your campsite, our recreation hall has a wireless access point inside.
When is quiet time?
Quiet time starts at 11 pm and ends at 10 am. This means that there must not be any loud noises during this time including excessive yelling, laughter, or music. You are permitted to continue your campfire after 11 pm as long as noise levels are kept to a minimum. However, our communal campfire often goes beyond 11 pm on Friday and Saturday nights so we encourage you to join us at this location. Very little noise radiates from the communal campfire area due to its location and surrounding terrain.
Are alcohol, cannabis, vaping, and/or cigarettes permitted?
Yes, we have an open policy. However, other guests and our employees must not be disturbed or bothered in any way. (This includes smell, smoke, loud noises, loud music, swearing, etc…) Smoking and vaping are not permitted in any buildings (e.g. Office, Washrooms, Sailors’ Rest, Traphouse, etc…) Aggressive and/or disruptive behaviour will absolutely not be tolerated and the police will be called if necessary.
