This campground (cg) is old and run down. It's run on a cash only basis - so be prepared to have everything you need in cash up front. The cg is messy, and not well laid out. There are no dead end signs for example - not fun when your rig is 55’ long in total. Their map is hand drawn with markers and then photocopied for the last 20 years it seems - so it’s pretty much illegible and useless. Cell signal (not the cg’s fault) is abysmal and seems to move constantly. We were placed in a ‘previously’ seasonal site. The only way to fit our rig was diagonally. It took us 1 hr of jockeying back and forth for that entire time to fit our rig in - not due to the size - which was generous - but the horrid topography — there was a 8 ft tall rubble hill on onside (seemed to be just rubble and weeds dumped there), trees all placed ‘purposely’ but in such a way as to block any logical way to get into the site, not to mention the garbage on the site — and rubble such as old broken patio stones etc. On the site there were numerous beer caps, zip ties, garden hoses - it was a mess, as well as several points where you could simply drop your RV down a steep hill if you weren’t super careful. We spent a lot of times clearing crud out so it wouldn’t spike our tires. After finally getting the rig in - the pervasive smell of garbage took over - being that the site was about 100 yards from their ‘dump’ area - also a mess. We damaged several areas of our roof due to the very low branches on either side of the narrow ‘road’ (I use the term loosely). The same trees also pulled clear off our vortex vent on the roof (a feat!). Also, prior to the cg entrance is a super steep gravel hill - about 40 degrees, right after you turn on to their road - so you don’t have any real momentum to get up the hill nicely. (we received no warning of this when we called and reserved.) I would not recommend trying that hill with an RV in any sort of damp weather. The owners / managers themselves seemed nice, as did fellow campers (the few we saw). First night there they had a horseshoe contest - which was really rowdy - lots of loud yelling, loud cursing and beer clinking clearly heard even from several hundred yards away. The next day that area was still messy with debris from the ‘party’. We asked about return time for the gate locking and were informed ‘we only lock the gate on long weekends to stop people going into town late at night for more beer’! The water is completely undrinkable - in fact the supply was a buried green 20 year old garden hose … completely unsafe. The sewer hookups were a disaster and really seemed like an afterthought. And the water itself was terrible smelling. I think they were pumping it straight out of the pond. On one of the days we were there we had the pleasure of watching, smelling, and hearing their tractor pump the sewage from the front lawn pipes and go back and forth past our site with it to some ‘other’ place - all day long. The land is beautiful but the campground needs to be basically rebuilt. The cg store is really nothing but some old ice cream and t-shirts with the cg name on it (unlike the website ads). Wood is 8$ a bag (very large bag). The place is overrun by mosquitoes due to the stagnant ponds. Some of the seasonal campers are quite rowdy at times. The cg managers advised me the pictures on their web site are not even ‘their’ cg. I would not return. - ciara

Site was a grass back-in and not level. Canoe rentals across from park. Adjacent sports fields get noisy at times, but it is usually quiet. Walking path leads into town. - Onemoretrail

Nice family campground with decent-sized sites. Trees in between offered privacy in Maples campground section. Some seasonal sites. Good-sized playground for children. Horseshoe pits for adults. Covered pavilion with electricity and tables. Camp store was only open on weekends but ice & firewood was available for purchase at gatehouse. Though no swimming pool, there was a small wading pool for children. Cell phone reception was available only near the gatehouse and not at the campsites. A 15-minute drive to Port Elgin where there is a Walmart. This campground is an access point (#11) along the Saugeen Canoe Route. - naturelover

A tad expensive, but you do get what you pay for : a clean, well kept park, a clean heated small pool, lots of areas to play, wooded sites, open sites, concrete pads or not, super excellent wifi, power, water and sewer in all sites, free firewood, nice little lake with beach perfect for the kids, 1 TV station with antenna. Very, very friendly and helpful staff, garbage pickup. My kids came and stayed in fancy fully equipped cabins. Loved it, well except for the very hard mattresses in the bunk beds. Well worth it. - dshelston

We have stayed at this park many times. The campground is very very well maintained. Garbage is picked up 3 times a day. Free fire wood is provided and stored on your site in wood containers. They deliver the firewood daily to your site.
The swimming pool is a salt water pool and is well maintained.
Our experiences with this park: if you want a nice quiet camping experience, then camp during the week. The weekends can be very busy and therefore a bit noisy. - SharonO

A real class act. Concrete level pads, free firewood, super fast wifi, heated pool, worth the cost when compared to other campgrounds. Also have real nice sites in forest, with all 3 services. Owner has invested lots, and still does, and it shows. Staff is friendly and super helpful. Like beach on small lake, and great trout fishing. Very quiet and well behaved clientèle. Hard to beat. - dshelston

This park has very friendly and helpful owners who were around very regularly. Most sites are occupied by seasonal campers. The transient sites are very heavily shaded and thus satellite access is virtually impossible. Even the roads are somewhat tight for our 36 foot fifth wheel. Their laundry is small but clean and inexpensive. On the whole, this is a reasonable place, but we would likely not stay again because of the poor satellite access. - wandrr

Beautiful park, excellent amenities! Would recommend anyone to stay here. There are a lot of activities going on everyday. Beaches are clean and have great water activities for kids. Loved our stay, looking forward to our next visit. - Kate86

Well maintained grounds, and the seasonal guests are friendly and welcoming. These are the only two positives that I can report from our recent trip to Fisherman's Cove. We arrived well in advance of closing time as per the instructions found with our reservation email, only to find the office closed. None of the posted phone numbers resulted in human contact. 3 hours away from home in a thunderstorm, there was no turning back. We camped in a parking lot for the night without any of the services that we paid for. We were charged full rate for that night. The good: Well groomed sites Clean bathrooms The bad: Very high rates Constant nickel & diming. Read the price list carefully before you book. Staff is argumentative and unhelpful LGBT community: read the price list for their definition of 'Family', then decide for yourself if you feel welcome. The advertised hot tub is rarely cleaned No cellular reception Office hours change without warning If you have a pet Rottweiler, Am Staff, or pit bull you aren't welcome here. Coin operated showers are traditionally 25 cents. They are a dollar here, shorter than normal, and cold even in the off season. There are bible passages posted all over the place. The advertised free wifi is only valid at the front office. If you want it at your site, it costs extra per device. The coverage is not complete, and you may not be able to connect from all sites. There are no refunds if you can't connect. There is no cellular reception at all for Rogers & Bell, other providers unverified. - ihatefishermanscove

In considering that we would be passing through the Kincardine area late in the day, my wife and I chose this park based on the description in a major directory. Being a Saturday and thinking good parks would not have any vacancies we decided to call ahead to secure a space. We accepted the only pull-through they had left, a bonus as we wouldn't have to unhook the toad. Upon arrival and checking in we saw we were being charged $54 for the site. A bit pricey but acceptable. However in addition to that they were charging $10 as a reservation fee. Altogether with taxes a total of $71.19. I was informed that the free Wi-Fi was only available at the office building, if I wanted it at my site there would be an extra charge of $5. The lady in the office went through all this without blinking an eye. Anyway because of the time of day and that we were tired we bit the bullet and checking in. On the plus side this park presents itself very well. Located on a spring-fed lake it is picture postcard beautiful. Buildings are all relatively new and spotless. Roadways are paved, sites are huge with concrete patios, hookups all work well and are properly placed. All sorts of activities for both adults and children. The majority of the sites are for seasonal campers (?), which are well kept. However due to their outrageous pricing policies we won't be back. - BillandEila

This is a lovely park within Owen Sound city limits. Great multi-use park including a full-service campground. Sites are of varying sizes and some gravel roads are a little narrow. Trees hug the roads in some places too- we drove out the "wrong" way as there was no way we could make the 90 degree turn through the trees to go the "right" way when we left the park.
We highly recommend this treasure of a campground. We would stay here again for sure. - DCM/JMB

I cannot say enough nice things about this park and area! It was stepping into a Norman Rockwell painting. Beauty everywhere! Wonderful people, 5 gorgeous waterfalls, a short drive to a massive white-sand beach. Fishing, boating, tours, shopping, and dining in abundance. Something for everyone. I loved the smells and sounds in this park. It's nestled in a wooded ravine where a river runs past the r.v. sites. There is a little bird sanctuary nearby. You can hear the gentle rustling of the leaves, the rushing water and the cry of an occasional bird. There are trees everywhere. There is a walk that takes you through an almost primeval forest. The park offers a lovely restaurant, childrens play area, pool, wading pool, boating, fishing, and mini golf. Picnic areas everywhere. We were there when a national dog show was going on. Enjoyed ourselves immensely! - penny & Ron White

This is in a city park. Campground is the older type with newer rigs trying to fit, many people have many cars at their site. If there is a vacant spot, it will be a camping site. Few big sites. Picnic table and fire ring (might be close to you or the next site). Stream runs past on one side and creek runs in middle. Has a nice restaurant in the Park and the pool looked nice. Can rent paddle boats or play miniature golf. Has caged pheasants and geese. Easy to get to dump station. Some walking and biking trails. - pegdiver
