Campground Review: Rondeau Provincial Park, ON
Campground Review: Hayes State Park, MI
August 26th, 2014 What campsites?
Whose idea was this place? Can you say TRAILER PARK the only thing missing is cement pads to park the honking big rigs on. I doubt there is another Provincial Park in Ontario that has as poor quality of campsites as Rondeau. Calling this camping is a joke half the sites don`t have a tree on them. A shame really as the rest of the park is nice. If you`re tent camping skip this place it only suitable for giant trailers with TV,AC, satellite dishes, couches and a travelling circus.

August 26th, 2014 Not our kind of Park
We stayed July 2014. Very small sites and most are in full sun. If you want some shade try to pick something at the end of the loop. There is no privacy at all.
If you have a big rig you may have trouble fitting it on a site and if it does fit you will not be able to fit your car.
There is a beach area that is nice but not much sand for the little ones. There is a concession stand that rent water toys. A bit of a problem with goose poop on the beach though.
The staff was very nice but the bathrooms could be cleaned on a more regular basis. The water for the sites is very brown but I sure fine for drinking but we bought water for drinking and cooking.
The park had no wood for sale when we were there.
I would not return to this park.

August 26th, 2014 Great Park
We visited this park August 2014 and loved it. It has HUGE sites and is very wooded with very little shade. We were fortunate enough to have a water front site. Canoe and kayak enthusiasts would love this park. Launch right off your site. There are no hook ups at this park so you mostly see tents, pop-ups and small trailers. There are very few big rigs.
There is a beach, change house and concession stand. The only place to buy ice is the concession stand so if it is after hours you must leave the park to buy ice down the road at the gas station.
The bathrooms and showers are very serviceable but could use a little updating.
They are closing after Labour Day for some renovations. I just hope they don`t do much to loose that rustic feeling.
Campground Review: Emily Provincial Park, ON
August 24th, 2014 First visit
I and my husband just spent 8 days at this campground. We had a great time. We had a nice private site in loop B, washrooms were clean, and most of all it was a quiet stay. The parks people were friendly. The only down side I saw was the lake is in trouble of disappearing. The lake is not for swimming anymore, but for me that is fine as I do not need to swim to have a great holiday. Oh and by the way the golf course you can get to through the park was a nice surprise. If I had to recommend one thing it would be for the huge potholes in the loops to be filled with gravel.Thanks L & J

August 18th, 2014 Drainage is Poor. Power wires overhead.
We just stayed on this campsite for 18 nights. It is in a fairly convenient location with a path straight to the main comfort station while not being too close. There are 5 campsites in close proximity, 4 with good buffers and 1 with no buffer. There are electrical wires running overhead. It was comfortable in dry weather but literally turned into a pond when there was heavy rain. ALL the surrounding campsites drain into it and the path to the comfort station changes into a stream flowing into the campsite. The fire pit is made up of broken concrete chunks, not as nice as many others in the campground. I do not recommend this campsite and won`t be staying on it again.

August 18th, 2014 Private but not flat
This site was long but had sloping hills on both sides which gave you privacy but limited choices for tent placement. It had very little traffic but was close to the boardwalk and comfort station/water.

This is a fantastic campground with something for everybody. Miles of trails for biking, running or walking, calm lake for floating, beautiful scenery with pristeen views of Mt. Hood, gorgeous sunsets from many of the sites.
Campground Review: Whitefish Lake Provincial Park, MB
August 16th, 2014 Loved It!
Chewacla State Park was great. Small park with about 36 full service RV sites, 16 primitive sites and 6 cabins. Since the park was built during the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps there are lots of stone structures, cabins, bridges, waterfall and concrete picnic tables through out the park. Each RV site has water, 30 & 50 amp electric, sewer and satellite tv. I was able to pick up 5 television channels over the air but the signal was too weak and wasn`t watchable. Bring you coax cable and you can hook right into cable tv at your site. Bathhouse was clean and air conditioned. Sites were clean and had picnic tables and a fire pit/grill. Cell service was good and I had plenty of signal. The park was full Friday - Sunday and on Monday we had it pretty much to ourselves. Even though it was full it was very quiet and peaceful. Dogs are allowed - if kept on a leash. Ours did fine and had plenty of space to go for walks. There are plenty of hiking and biking trails, even one that is rated for experienced riders only with lots of wood structures to ride over and through.
Considering the park is in Auburn the crowds at the park may be different once college football starts.
August 13th, 2014 Beautiful, Mature Campground but Poorly Managed
We recently camped at Whitefish Lake campground for a seven night stay. The campground is very beautiful, the lake is not huge but it is not small. There is good fishing in the lake.
The only down side to camping at Whitefish Lake, and it`s only a down side if you are one who actually tries to abide by rules and etiquette of a campground, is that there is no visible supervision of the campground. Because of the lack of supervision, there are some campers who simply do as they please whenever they please.
On our most recent visit, those in the neighbouring campsite ended up with no fewer than three vehicles parked at their site and one parked at a neighbouring site, they had a camper and two tents and they had two dogs running off-leash. Their buddies at a nearby campsite had two more vehicles there, a camper and a tent. The campers also would frequently carry on a yelling conversation from one side of the camping area to the other...very rude and disturbing.
Because there was no visible supervision in the campground, there was nothing done about this situation so it just made for a less enjoyable situation for everyone in the vicinity.
Other than this, the only negative aspect to camping at Whitefish Lake is that you really should bring your own firewood as the wood they provide is mostly rotten black poplar that doesn`t burn very well at all...or NOT at all.
