Nice spot along Gillies lake. It's absolutely quiet and very clean. The host are nice. We stay only for one night on a primitive campsite but we enjoyed it. It's located about 35 minutes from Tobermory. More

Thanks for you nice review. Hopefully you can stay another time for a little bit longer to see what the Northern Bruce Peninsula can offer you.
We stopped here for one night with our rental RV and sadly our plans changed so we couldn't stay our original planned second night. Nevertheless we had a memorable time particularly as it was hog roast night when we arrived to raise money for a defibrillator which was such fun and delicious. The 'locals' were really friendly and invited us to sit with them, it was a great experience for us Brits! The site is immaculate and our three girls had a great time on the inflatable and then we also hired a reasonably priced motor boat to hang out on the lake for an hour. The pitches are a good size and facilities very nice (love the piped music in the washrooms!). We stopped in over 10 sites on our road trip in Ontario and this one was up with the best.
Thanks for the wonderful review and I think we all had a great time at the Pig Roast it was so yummy, I especially like the "Crackle" the crunchy outside skin and thank goodness the weather co-operated! We had many generous donations and we surpassed our goal for the AED machine so we hopefully have enough monies to purchased the outside casing for it:) it was a pleasure to have you for your short stay. Kindest Regards, Ron & Kathie Parker
My boyfriend and I camped at mountain trout camp and had an amazing time! The owners were so friendly and welcoming and gillies lake was so nice to swim in. We rented kayaks one afternoon and explored the lake which was so beautiful. The bathrooms were very clean and our campsite was nice too! We will definitely be back.
So happy to hear you had a wonderful time, kayaking Gillies Lake is I think one of the most peaceful relaxing things I love to do here. Maybe you will come for a longer visit next time. Thanks for the kind words, Ron & I expect cleanliness to the max, we use to be campers too:) and we thought that was 1 of the most important drawing cards to a campground!
Hospitality at its finest. If you are fortunate enough to visit the Bruce peninsula and are looking for a clean, professional, relaxed environment with family oriented campground this would be the place to go. Ron and Kathie are well respected owners of this campground and are very courteous and understanding to the need a of a very large family. If anyone that is looking for a clean and well run campground that will meet your expectations and beyond look no further then mountain trout camp. Look forward to another drive to the peninsula and enjoy another stay here. Thanks Ron and Kathie.
Hey Jason thanks for the kinds words, yes we are very family oriented here and quite enjoyed your family of 6 children! The twins were little dolls. Take care and enjoy the rest of your summer.
We camped at MTC after a long day of hiking on the Bruce Trail. Ron and Kathie were extremely accommodating, they were happy to help us in any way they could. The campsite was clean, quiet and beautiful. Can't wait to return and "put our feet up" as Ron invited us to do.
Thanks for the kinds words, both Ron & I can't believe the milage that some of you hikers do in a day! Hence the words 'put your feet up." Hopefully our paths cross again.
We stayed on site F6 site was a good size and gravel which suited our small trailer perfectly. this site had water and electric hook up. There is no dump station at this campground. they have a pumper truck that can suck out your trailer at the end of your stay or when needed. The charge for that was $10.00.
We very much enjoyed (both the adults AND the kids) the jungle gym on the water. there was one day we spent the entire day on the very well maintained dock.There is no sandy beach but there is sand that was brought in that kids can enjoy. There is a sandy shallow area and a slide that younger children can play in.
All of the staff were very friendly. The store is well stocked with items you may have forgotten. WIFI is very poor. do not expect service here.
Toilets and showers are clean and there are also some clean porta potties around the campground.
The lake is beautiful and so quiet. the whole property is very well maintained and I could tell just pulling in that Ron and Kathie take great pride in the gem that they have. We will for sure be returning!
Thanks for the lovely review and yes Ron & I take great pride in our hidden treasure of beauty, Gillies Lake where our campground is situated. Our dump station is located in a awkward spot and it is much easier to take the pumper truck to you. :) Thanks again and hopefully we see you next year here at Mountain Trout Camp!
