Dark Sky Camping

Our dark sky camping features truly untouched, private wilderness campsites that are situated in the fields and meadows of the Dark Sky Preserve in the interior of the park. This area is accessible by private road, only a five-minute drive from the main campground, or campers can travel by foot through our trails to access the amenities that are unique to the main campground area. Amenities in the Dark Sky Preserve include picnic tables, cook stands, clean privy’s, a dishwashing station, and an eco-shower stall. Also located in the Dark Sky Preserve is the Baden Powell grove, and a large picnic shelter. The area boasts the darkest skies in Ontario and is perfect for astronomy. It’s also a great spot to hunt for fossils or spend some time birdwatching, or you can head out to explore our network of hiking trails. All overnight guests get free access to our nature centre and hiking trails and have the option to pay once and play as often as they like on our 18 hole mini putt course and solar heated swimming pool.

People planning to come to the Dark Sky Preserve to camp should be aware that we have a NO WHITE LIGHT rule on the preserve.  Any light has to be red in colour or covered in a red filtering material such as a red garbage bag or red plastic.Read more about our Dark Sky Preserve.
