The campground is mostly grassy and the campers were very quiet. The only two negatives were the traffic noise (of which the campground has no control) and the showers were lukewarm. Other than that the check in person was more than helpful when we thought our credit card number had been stolen. He went above and beyond to help. If... More

My spouse & I love staying at this campground. We book here for every single long weekend. We got our families to come & also loved it. Its close enough to home(just in case an emergency comes up). While there, it doesn't feel like you're in the city at all. Very clean and the staff is very friendly. I recommend... More

Today is the first day of a week long stay at this urban campground. Since selling my house and moving into my tiny house on wheels I've been exploring campgrounds near Toronto so as to be close to my family. Next summer I'll stay predominantly in one spot to take advantage of long term rates. This could be the spot!... More

We chose this campground for the location. Just inside Toronto city limits, not very far from the zoo and a short drive to downtown Toronto. When we booked we thought it had 3 services but only had electric and water, so that was a problem for us. Their dump station is not located well, especially for a motorhome towing a... More

No access to the river which is a bummer. They are very proud of their firewood at $12 a bundle. Other than that it's a nice clean campground with hot showers that are relatively clean.

We camp here occasionally. Nice relaxed vibe, many birds, big trees, the creek that you can paddle on, and great hiking. If you need a cheap place to stay instead of paying for a Toronto hotel room, this fits the bill. Or if you want an easy escape from the city, this campground is accessible by public transit.

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
