4 RV Parks near Marathon, Ontario
Aug 2018 - $28.00
After staying here for a couple of days, this park turned out to be one of our favourite Ontario provincial parks. From the friendly and efficient gate house and visitor centre staff to the breathtaking location, this place has it all. The campgrounds are several km off the main highway, so no worries about highway traffic. The odd train went by, but it wasn't distracting. The park has four campgrounds. Our site was in Area 1, the first one past the entrance. It was a sandy and unlevel pull-through that required some levelling, but had a great view of the lake. The only hookup was electric which required an extension. Water fill up and dump station are between the gate house and the campground. They can be accessed in either direction. There were some trees between sites that gave some privacy. A table and a fire grill were included on site. No OTA TV or Wi-Fi, but satellite TV is possible from many water view sites. There are several hiking trails that takes one to lookouts, dunes, and even the remains of a very old volcano. This park was the location of a WWII prisoner of war camp and we were fortunate to be here when a guided hike took us to the remains of this camp. The beach here is one of the cleanest I've ever encountered. No fast food wrappers found here. The waters in the bay were fairly smooth and great for kayakers. The water is cold though and I wouldn't want to fall in. Small boats such as kayaks and canoes can be launched from the beach, but anything bigger has to go to the boat ramp near the last campground furthest away from the entrance. If I was ever in this area again, I would most definitely stay here again. - Onemoretrail

On the North shore of Lake Superior. Stayed here in late June, bring your bug spray the mosquitoes and black flies are aggressive 24/7. No dogs on the beach in Section 1. Electric (20 and 30 Amp) service only. Potable water and dump station at entrance to campground. Marginal Verizon service, no Wifi, no OTA TV channels. Easy access for bigger RVs. The train track crossing is rough. Electric connection is at the real of the site, bring extra cable. - Bburgbrewer

Sept 14, Neys Provincial Park, Marathon, Ontario, Canada -site 13 in the #1 loop looking out to Lake Superior, dump station, Visitor Center, $42 with electric, bathhouse with showers, beaches This campground is located right off HWY 17 along the north shore of Lake Superior between Thunder Bay and Marathon, Ontario. Once you turn on the park roads it is another two miles down to the campground. There are four sections to this park. Sections 1-3 are located along the shore and many of the sites have electric. Section 4 is more inland and on the Little Pic River. There are seasonal sites here during the summer. We stayed for one night on our way from Thunder Bay to WAWA and it was first come because the park was closing the following week. We self- registered around 3pm and chose a site and within the hour most of the lake sites were taken. The beach in front of section 1 is a no dog beach but 2 and 3 pets are permitted. This campground is very busy during the summer months and reservations might be needed. Hwy 17 east is a scenic route going up and down hills and driving along the northern point of Lake Superior. Beautiful drive and a great stay. - gsnakehill

Cash only. Price is CAD, and seemed a bit steep to me. We arrived in an early October rainstorm, with high winds and cold temperatures. This was the only park around that was open; so we were happy to have any port, despite the lack of wifi or even of mobile phone coverage. 15 amp service was adequate for our 23' trailer, but we were careful. There was no breaker at the post and no one in the office during the day at this time of year. Our site (#9) was far enough from the highway to not be bothered by the noise. The site was clean, except for the mess in the fire ring, and level (others were not). It was very close to the next site on one side (we shared the electric outlet), but well separated from the one on the other side. Turns in the park roads were tight, and a long vehicle might have difficulty. The town operated CG in Marathon is a better bet when it's open, but Neys Lunch is good for a late-season overnight. - Ian in Nelson

When we checked in, we got the best site in this RV Park. Site #12. Surprised they honoured Passport America discount in the summer time. Made reservations but wondered if it was necessary. Stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed Pebble Beach and the geocaching nearby. - Barb McLaren

Price reflects Passport America rate, including tax. Campsite was decent enough with fire ring and picnic table. Noise from highway and trains. Bathrooms seemed like they hadn't been cleaned in a while. Water was almost scalding in the shower and you cannot control the temperature. Glad I didn't pay full price. - MSSW

Nice little town-run park. There is a self-registration station at the entrance that you can use for one night. Cash or credit card only. This was useful for us, as we arrived on a Sunday when the town office was closed. Only a few campers were here in mid-September. We had campsite #4, directly adjacent to the wifi emitter; so reception for us was good. The wifi is still fairly slow, but it's free. The trail around the lake runs through the park and takes 45 min to an hour to walk. It is in good condition. Local school kids have placed "fairy houses" all along the trail. We were here only for a night but might stay longer another time. Our pull-through site was just long enough for our Jeep and 23' trailer. - Ian in Nelson

A nice park in Marathon Ontario run by the local township. There are just 26 sites but lots of space for the big rigs. Has full hookups and the park seems used mostly by campers passing through. If you don't have reservations and just drop in the summer months will be busy. - Jonsey

Very pretty place. Pleasant stay. If the restrooms had been heated on a cold morning it would have been better. - Geodoc

We really loved this campground. They don't take reservations but we had no problem getting a site in July, right after Canada Day. However, it was the middle of the week. I noticed many of the previous reviews mentioned the bathrooms being out of service due to renovations. Well, they are complete and the bathroom and shower facilities are very nice and clean. Once of the attractions of this park was the hiking trails. Some are a bit of a climb, but the views are spectacular. If you like to fish, I was able to pull in 2 northern pikes early in the morning right from the shore. Be aware that many parks in Canada don't allow live bait. - Tony and Becky

We loved this beautiful park. Our site was level, with good privacy and separation from other sites. Most sites are spacious; a few are a little small. None of the sites can be reserved in advance. Fortunately, there were few campers at this time of year. The friendly kiosk guy told us that generally sites are available even in the height of summer. (This season was an exception because national park entry was free in honour of Canada's sesquicentennial.) Backing in was very easy and the electric post was within easy reach. One site housed volunteer camp hosts who were helpful. We got a brilliant low-season rate. Unfortunately, however, the toilet/shower/laundry blocks were closed for renovation. We took several of the interesting walks; they were not always well signposted and we had to search for the route in a few spots. We stayed two nights but wish we had had more time. - Ian in Nelson

This is a great National Park. There is only one pull through site, which we were lucky to get, but even the back in sites are pretty good. The sites are widely spaced apart and it is heavily wooded.
The park has many hiking trails that are great for the average person. 2-4km and not difficult. The multiple views of Lake Superior from the multiple hiking trails were fantastic.
The park water and showers were shut down in October, but since we are self contained that wasn't an issue.
If you have the opportunity to camp here, do it. - cagvc
