We stayed here for 2 nights. I phone them up first to register and booked my stay. I was told that I will receive an email for confirmation. I have to phone them back for email confirmation 2 days before I leave, the receptionist sounded like pissed off for requesting my email confirmation. We arrived late for some circumstances and they have to leave my map to the site, luckily they still have staff manning the facility and we were guided to find our site in the middle of the night.

The utility hook up is too far from the cement pad they've provided for each site, you have to backed up away from the pad to be able to reach their water and electrical hookup. I have to wait until the next day to correct it by buying an adaptor that I may not use ever again.

The swimming pool is big hit for both youngster and adult alike. It is well maintained and properly guarded in kiddie side.

Lots of room to play around and wide open space for dogs and playground are substantial and well taken care off. I just thought that it is a little stiff for the not so shabby place like this. We camped at Sturgeon Woods Campground and Marina in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed for 6 days. Originally they had us by the pool but we explained we wanted a quiet site, & that our dogs would be disturbed by constant traffic walking by to the pool (and may bark). So they switched us to Maple ave. That turned out to be a much better site-much bigger & a view of the bay. Wi-fi only works at the rec center. There is another wi-fi that announces itself but is not free, therefore we never tried the wi-fi. The speed bumps are fairly steep on the 1st road of the park. And the alignment of the gate and 'safety' posts made it a bit tricky to leave with our rig. The rest of the roads are well kept. However, there are several roads that are unmarked dead ends - which can be unnerving when your new. We were given a pass for the mirror so that they would raise the barrier each time we returned from town. However, never did the see the pass, we would have to ring the gatebell & show it out the window every time. They should have a gate card option. Our site was level, & clean - except for the garbage in the firepit left by the previous campers (that was cleaned out by their crew 4 days later on their own (we hadn't use the fire pit). The park is fairly quiet where we were sited. The dog park is quite large & clean, with trees-our dogs loved it. A double gate on the dog park would be a nice addition. The recreation hall is quite impressive. Very few negatives - they need more garbage cans - i didn't find a single one except for 'at' the dog park (so walking your dog you're carrying the 'refuse' all the way back to your site). There was no recycling center to be found. There were mangled tin cans with sharp edges & frequently garbage on the little park by the bay. (I picked up the cans because it could cut little bare feet or dogs feet). There is very little shade in maple cr. All in All we will return - and the area is really nice too :) We camped at Sturgeon Woods Campground and Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Leamington is filled with great farm stands, and awesome restaurants, point pelee is stunning hiking area, and hillman marsh is another great hiking area.

My family loves this campground and we return to it often since it is close to our home of Windsor, Ontario. We visited 3 times this summer and will continue to frequent it next year, I'm sure. The main washroom facility is usually very clean and well kept. There are often lines on the weekend to use the showers but the water is hot and the showers/ toilets are well maintained. The pools, including water slide, are always a hit with the children. The lifeguards are friendly and do a good job of controlling the area. The addition of the dog park was a nice surprise this year and we appreciated having it available. We also liked the added security that was driving through the park during the night. We also love the proximity of this campground to Point Pelee and Leamington for day trips and visits to the beach/ waterfront. My only criticisms/ suggestions involve the main park next to the bathroom- this area needs some TLC and new equipment. We were also disappointed that there was a fence extended to the waterfront this year that blocks walking/ bikes from passing through to the bathrooms from the main part of the campground. This was a very well-used path and it was missed. We also had some concerns with the hydro hook-ups along our street. They needed some attention and when we had a problem, we were instructed to just "use another plug". We camped at Sturgeon Woods Campground and Marina in a Tent Trailer.

An update for 2012: nice park, primarily a seasonal situation, an easy bike ride to Leamington and Pelee Is ferry. Friendly staff and residents. Sewer pipe was broken but useable at our site. Two unheated pools weren't open in mid-June, nor was the rec hall. The heated indoor pool is a 3-ft deep kiddie thing within the closed rec hall. Couldn't find showers or a bathroom unlocked during our stay. All this should be corrected in July. If you park near the rec hall the Wi-Fi is free but very weak and slow. A stronger Wi-Fi is available at a price, but we didn't try it. We camped at Sturgeon Woods Campground and Marina in a Motorhome.

Stayed here during PT Pelee birding weeks because it was closest to park. It is mostly a seasonal park with pull thru sites WITHOUT SEWER. Had to take a back in site to get sewer. Sites are tightly packed in, ours was soggy with surface water, could not access free internet from site, only in front of closed rec centre, no cable, staff was not friendly or helpful. Only 1 restroom / shower building for entire campground in off season, long walk to it. Location was best thing going for this campground. We camped at Sturgeon Woods Campground and Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

Large campground very convenient to Point Pelee National Park. Mix of about 70% seasonal and 30% transient. Wi-Fi was adequate but very expensive, even for the weekly rate. We might stay here again. We camped at Sturgeon Woods Campground and Marina in a Fifth Wheel.
