Craigleith Provincial Park Reviews
We knew in advance about the proximity of the road to the sites, but it was a meeting place for three different groups of people, so equal driving for all. Weren’t really prepared for the how loud the... more »

However, the grounds are small and unfortunately we hear Highway 26 passing just at the entrance to the campsite. The Georgian bay is beautiful, but there is no real beach. Lots of rocks to get into the water. You've got to have better beach shoes. However, the water is an incredible blue reminiscent of the Caribbean. The location of the campsite is perfect. About 10 minutes from all the amenities in Collingwood. The village of Blue Mountain is minutes away. It is a village similar to Mont Tremblant. Several bike paths near the campsite, including one that literally passes through the door.
Great site, probably the best night we could have had weather-wise, water level was really high and no beach to speak of, but it was still beautiful. Dog beach was actually one of the nicest areas. Amazing to sleep with the sound of the waves hitting the shoreline. Camp store has a good variety of sundry items you may need if you forget something, and staff were very friendly. Staff are also great at being out and patrolling the campgrounds constantly. Washrooms were clean. Would definitely recommend, although be warned there are only a few really amazing sites. Limited number of private / shady sites, and most of the west end sites of the park have absolutely no shade or privacy. Can't wait to go back!! ❤️
I do like many aspects of Craigleith Provincial Park, but not all. There are some things that I feel that they were lacking compared to other Provincial Parks I have camped at, but its still a good campground overall. They are positioned almost right on the lake, many campsites are maybe 50 feet from the water, so very nice for proximity and if you want a quick dip. They also have a playground for the little ones, a volleyball court with net which we used for badminton, a open field for various sports, and a horseshoe pit. The Office doubles as a Park Store and is open late (11 pm) for any last minute quick purchases of camping essentials (but their selection is small). Unfortunately, their waterfront lacks sand and consists of rocks, many many rocks, so bring water shoes. There is no actual beach, but campers of Craigleith Provincial Park get free parking at Wasaga Beach (if you want to drive that far). Many campsites have limited privacy and many simply have 1-3 trees between campsites. You can often see through many campsites as there is no brush to offer privacy between sites. It looks as though they recently planted baby trees between some sites so that should help offer privacy and protection from the sun, in about 20 years. Lastly, the washrooms are not quite up to par with some other Provincial Park washrooms, they could use a little work but I'll admit they are still better then many other campgrounds I have visited. Overall, my family had fun here and this is a campground I would visit again if some of my other preferred campgrounds have no vacancy.
