Wasaga Beach has about 5 prominent campsites at varying distances from their famous beach; has anyone camped there...any tips or recommendations on favorites, or ones to avoid?Any contact persons? I'm toying with the idea of plunking the Trillium at a campsite for a trip or two this Fall, while I go metal detecting on the beach or in the water.
Any Trillium owners in Wasaga? Bolers? Other F/G "eggs" ?

Joe/Peterborough

Hi Joe,

I have never camped in Wasaga Beach, but I do know that in the summer it is VERY busy with tons of teenagers, and lots of alcohol! The fall might be better though. However if you were planning on going in that direction, you should go to Sauble Beach. They have a really nice provincial park there...Sauble Falls Provincial Park. In the fall the salmon are spawning, and it is amazing to see them swimming up stream. The beach in Sauble Beach is amazing as well, and would also be ideal for metal detecting.

Hi Andrea
Thanx for the tip on Sauble Beach as an alternate;never camped or detected there, its quite a drive from Peterborough but have heard of its fame from other detectorists.Is the main beach part of S.F. Park, or is it separate? It just might be worth a trip...

Joe

Hi Joe,

The main beach is separate, but it's only about 5 minutes away. The campground shouldn't be busy at that time of year (which is nice because the washrooms are super clean then)...and its open until Thanksgiving weekend which just happens to be the same time the entire town of Sauble Beach goes into hibernation.

I think the drive from Peterborough should be about 4 hours or so. We just bought a property on Rice Lake and it takes us 2 hours to get there...and from our place to Sauble Beach its another 2 hours. http://www.ontarioparks.com/english/saub.html

Another really nice campground is MacGregor Point Provincial Park. They have some really nice hiking trails, and it's not very far from the beaches of Port Elgin...which are also great for metal detecting. http://www.ontarioparks.com/English/macg.html

Hope this helps,
Andrea

Not far from Sauble Falls is Inverhuron Provincial Park, it was closed for 29 years and just re-opened last year. Fantastic beach and beautiful scenery. We saw not one racoon the whole time we were there, while McGregor Point and Sauble falls has trubs with them. http://www.ontarioparks.com/english/inve.html

Thanx Paddy for your tip on Inverhuron...seems like we're working our way down Lake Huron...first Andrea's Sauble Falls, and MacGregor Point and now your Inverhuron. They're all worth checking out, some day ! So many parks...so little time !!
But hey...we're getting farther away from Wasaga Beach with each response !!
Has nobody camped there, at the private campgrounds? Unfortunately, Wasaga Beach Prov Park has no camping, just day-use; and yes it has a wild, young crowd, and yes there's some( !!! ) alcohol consumed. Maybe those c/g's are packed with that crowd...yes ?

Thanx again Paddy for the main link, but unfortunately I could not open the majority of the other links, nor the websites! Judging from references to poor reviews for most of those campgrounds,I may reconsider camping there at all; day-trips here I come.
