  Beautiful area, terrible camping

I have such mixed feelings about this park. The area is stunning and there is so much to see and do. However, the camping is undeniably bad. We stayed at the Cypress Lake campground in Bruce Peninsula National Park for the second year in a row, in July/August of 2014. We stayed 5 nights in the Poplars section of the campground. The camping was terrible. The site (#28) was listed as "good" privacy when we reserved it online in April of 2014. However, the site was exposed to at least 4 other campsites, with very little shrubbery or growth in between sites. The site itself was a mudpit, despite a fresh layer of gravel having been laid down just before our arrival. Our lightweight tent trailer sunk on one side due to the mud. The muck was caused by a continually leaking watertap nearby. It's a shame that Parks Canada decided the appropriate action was to lay more gravel instead of fixing the problem - the leaky tap. Washrooms are primitive at best, with inadequate cleaning. Showers are not available in this area. For a price not much less than camping with Ontario Parks, our experience camping with the National Parks system is far inferior to Ontario Parks. While we really enjoyed the hiking in the area and various other activities, we were very disappointed by the camping and won't be returning to the area for a few years. When we do return we may try a private campground.
