5 RV Parks near Bowmanville, Ontario
Jul 2017 - $39.00
As remarked by previous reviewers the roads are narrow and overhung with branches. Many trees show the scars of meetings with RVs. The sites vary from open, cheek by jowl with your neighbors, to secluded and enclosed by vegetation. The showers are individual separate tiled rooms. The park has hiking trails and regular ranger-led educational activities. There is also a large sandy beach. - Appleknocker

Like most provincial parks, the roads are narrow, low hanging limbs to hit your unit, uneven ground to set up on, BUT you get to pay the same as any good park with amenities. Too bad...otherwise a lovely setting. - new 5th wheeler

Park is between the 401, train tracks, and the lake and is quite noisy from the traffic, even in the middle of the night. Train engineers seem to delight into blowing their horns when passing the campground at night. Restrooms are very clean; laundry room is very clean. There is a small store with the usual junk food; nothing really nutritious. Campground is quite large, with several sections in amongst trees. My first site had a horseshoe shaped road bordered by trees and was a challenge. The second was at the end of a road and not even close to level. There is an enclosed dog park a few exits east. Stuff for kids to do -- lectures and get togethers, play areas, playground, beach, etc. Nice hiking possibilities. No internet. - Meeska

This was an amazing place to camp! The owner was on site and there were constantly young, polite, helpful staff working on the grounds, helping campers and staffing the small camp store. There is no swimming pool, but there are two ponds on site, one for camping and one for fishing. There are a variety of seasonal sites available depending on if you want to be private or social. The activities and amenities on site were great and nothing was in need of repair or broken. The bugs weren't as bad as I thought they'd be for an inland campsite. There is a definite pride of ownership with this park. Tremendously kid friendly, we really enjoyed it here. We will definitely be back. - HendersonClan

Beautiful location. Sewer and water supply needs upgrading Sites can be hard to level on. But the view and proximity is a absolute gem! - Samuelbc

Campers crammed in so tightly we could not use our awning for the first 2 days until someone left.
The very worst part was the condition of the permanent sewer hook ups. None of these were properly installed or came with sealed tops. Many had plastic bags held down with chunks of stone and in our case, ours was covered with a plastic bag full of water to seal the hook up when not in use.
Beach was pristine and well kept. The nearby park was magnificent and well tended. On walking back from it in the evening the only sour note was the faint but definite smell of sewage which hung over the trailer park. - Mrs Toto

Best beach in on Lake Ontario -- really. City campground, office staff was very nice to us. Not the cheapest place we stayed at, but our RV was literally less than 10ft from the beach, and a huge very clean swimming area. WOW. Nice place. - User2756

Extremely clean and well run with a lot of activities. Very large lots that are cut and trimmed by the park weekly. Management socializes well with the guests and are very accumulating. I highly recommend this park. - albie

Very clean park. Quiet. Could hear a pin drop at 10pm. Enjoyable walks on the trails, thru woods to wooden bridge, pond. Staff friendly. - Robert Richard

We stayed in this park for only one night though we booked for two nights. Very noisy due to large grass cutting machines and tractors and backhoes leveling adjacent sites to ours. There are 80 sites total but of the 80 only 5 are available to transient campers. Nice large sites with gravel base and large grassy area with picnic table and a fire ring. Heated indoor large pool and hot pool as well. No satellite reception if using a fixed dish like a King Dome. Large trees blocking all southern exposure from all 5 sites. Staff very friendly. Rate reflects Passport America rate. Would stay here again but only at reduced rate. - noelfawc

A really nice change from standard RV parks and campsites. The site has a huge area for seasonals along with a large marina for small pleasure craft. The "transient" RV section is on the other side of the marina canal, with a great view of the boats and the restaurant. The store has a good selection of RV supplies and the staff are great. The transient RV sites are spacious and level, and there's only 10 of them, not 470 as listed here on RV Park Reviews (that refers to the permanent seasonal sites). We stayed during the week and we were the only ones there. Transient RV Sites have electricity and water, but no sewer. The dump station is deep within seasonals territory. Highly recommended as a stopover for travelers heading to or from Toronto, especially if you like to boat or fish. It's only about 40 minutes straight North of the 401, 20 minutes north of the 407. Set your GPS, though, because there is very little in terms of signage to guide you. I would have given this site top ratings if there have been sewer and decent wi-fi. We'll be back! - SteveP42

Predominantly a seasonal campground, it still makes a nice weekend getaway. Located on Lake Scugog, it's perfect for boating and fishing. Very well kept, bathrooms are clean, although the showers are pay. The transient sites are located on the boating canal, which makes for nice viewing while camping. They have a licensed restaurant on site, with live music on the weekend. All in all, it's a fun place to go. - accmplce
