Woodland Park Campground in Ontario is located a short walk from a unique 7-mile stretch of natural sand beach on the clean, blue shallow waters of Lake Huron, famous for excellent swimming and spectacular sunsets.
Woodland Park Campground is one of Good Sam’s top-rated 10/10*/10 parks. The park has over 770 total sites, with 155 being overnight/transient sites, plus tenting sites. Each site includes a large cement patio, paved roads, free cable TV, picnic table and fire ring. High-speed WiFi is available. The indoor heated pool and hot tub provide family fun — rain or shine.
For those who do not have a camping unit, the family can still enjoy the camping experience in one of Woodland Park Campground’s two- or three-bedroom Trailer rentals. Trailers are stocked with dishes, plates, pots, pans, glasses, cutlery, microwave, toaster, coffee-maker, TV and FREE CABLE.
There are supervised children’s activities and two playgrounds for the younger members of the family. If you have some spare energy, hit the courts to enjoy a game of basketball, get some sun playing sand beach volleyball or play a game of ping pong or billiards.
Back to the Beach
Sauble Beach’s 4.3 miles of pristine sandy beach constitute the second-longest freshwater beach in the world. With that much beach, there’s lots of room to bring the family and spread out. Swim, surf, kiteboard, jet ski, play in the sand, play volleyball or visit the famous Piping Plovers. Why fly to the Caribbean when a slice of the Caribbean exists in Ontario’s Sauble Beach? It’s sandy, clear, family-friendly and a short distance to all types of amenities. Whether you like to swim, shop, golf or just relax in the sun, there is something to do for everyone.
Just up the road is Sauble Falls. Take your time and explore both sides of the falls. In season, keep a keen eye for fish trying to jump the falls. It is a natural spawning ladder in September and October for trout and salmon. Another interesting area is the Fishing Islands in Oliphant. Continue up Bruce Rd. 13 to Oliphant and enjoy the shoreline drive while checking out the Fishing Islands.
Then take the short drive to the numerous tourist areas such as the Sauble River, the Bruce Trail, the Provincial Parks & Nature Reserves, the majestic Niagara Escarpment, Wiarton and Tobermory.
