Average campground, Expensive considering what you do not get. Problem for us were the bugs. Thousands of these bugs they call fuzzies. Like giant mosquitoes that do not bite but still are a nuisance. Also took our dog for a walk and he came back infested with wood ticks. Ticks are a real problem to get off a dog! There is a really nice huge beach area with some campsites carved right out of the sand dunes. Neat! But I thought there was boardwalk trails through the marshes used for bird watching. No trails! According to my wife we will never go back because of the bugs. - randyk1711

We camped on a Friday night, so if you're looking for peace & quiet, don't look here. We asked for a more private site & therefore took a site without electricity. The site was in the Walking Stick section. The sites near us began to fill up immediately with groups of people, not rowdy per se, but unlike those of any campground we'd ever visited, like weekend campers getting out of some city or other. I had to tell one neighbor to turn the music down; the 6 men across from us were too loud. The site was not clean-lots of little trash like beer caps. Some of the many confusing barrels & crates for recycling were overflowing onto the ground & hadn't been emptied in a while. A mess.
The beach on Lake Erie was quite a ways away, about 1/2 a mile, so we took our cycle.
We never saw a park vehicle drive by our area.
Right near the highway, although there wasn't much noise at night. We would never stay here again. Not a place to have confidence in for a relaxing stay. - Upriver

First time staying in this Provincial Park, might be our new favorite next to the Pinery. Sites were very large and private. Very nice park. - wannago

The camping sites are well separated by mature trees, which provides excellent shade. The sandy beach is a short drive away from the campground and is very clean. Kids really enjoyed the beach. The shower and bath facilities at the Walkingstick Woods site where we stayed were nice and clean. They have a short 2.5km trail, which was nice to walk with 4 and 8 year old, but does cross a road, which was not busy. We did not try the longer 4km trail. The campground had lots of kids and pets. - Lazy Camper

A park that has a unique beach on lake Erie with massive sand dunes. A long trek down and up from the beach area, a lot of work for little kids and older people. No shade in the hook up area which made it very hot for the time that we were there. Most of the RVs were a permanent fixture, lots of room for tents. The owners need to visit other parks and check out the amenities elsewhere and the cost of such. WIFI is $12 Canadian, very steep to say the least. - Jonsey

Cheap site but everything else is extra - $5 each day for each (electric, sewer, motorhome, tow car) and price was for only 2 people ($14 each) so it ended up very expensive. Large sand dunes block access to small beach on Lake Erie (long, long way back up). Pay phone near office, picnic table and fire ring. A few pay showers. Got the sewer site between 2 seasonals and we were out of the very crowded other areas. Some sites had 5 tents and many cars. Not near anything. - pegdiver

Under new management. Very unprofessional bought a new trailer to put on existing lot. Been there for 16 years. Provided no assistance when needed Wasn't available on opening day. Office always closed when you need assistance. They do not answer the phone goes to voice mail which is full. Long term renters are told it's not a family Park it's a business. Have never had trouble before this new management started fall of last year. Very disappointing. Park is beautiful would recommend if new management comes in - unhappy 123

This was a great campground, clean, friendly and pet friendly. Short drive to Turkey Point and beautiful beach. Nice walk or bike ride to Normandale beach which is small but dog friendly. Nice pool, great walking trails just outside the park. Would definitely stay here again. - wannago

Norfolk is an old campground occupied mostly by seasonal campers. We have visited it now twice because we have family doing just that there. Sites are small, uneven either grass or gravel. Our rig is 12'6" high and we did encounter low hanging branches driving to our campsite. Our site, number 104 sits on the bluff overlooking Lake Erie. No fire ring and a rickety old picnic table. We were unable to level our motor home with out the trick of lifting the rear wheels off of the ground First time here was May of 2016 and we did have a great view looking out over the lake. This most recent visit June 2017 most of the view was blocked by vegetation. The electrical grid is old and subject to power outages, though a problem I thought I had with the power pedestal turned out to be a bad extension cord I was using. The staff was real helpful and very forthright regarding the age of the park and the utilities. Norfolk could be a very nice campground if the Ontario government put some money into it. However, talking to the staff they have done the reverse and cut their budget and raised the seasonal fee by $700 in two seasons. We noticed the number of empty seasonal sites compared to last year. We probably would go back because of the family we have there, for that reason only. - vincee

Norfolk Conservation Area is a provincial run park along the shores of Lake Erie. In the area there are a number of "Conservation Area" parks dotting the lake coastline with perhaps the most popular in the area being Turkey Point Conservation area because of its beautiful sandy beach on Lake Erie. We stayed at Norfolk because a family member has a seasonal camper there. This is an older park filled mostly with seasonal campers in mostly very very old trailers. Sites are all gravel or grass, somewhat flat to very uneven. Some, such as the site we had 104, are on the cliff side bank of Lake Erie offering beautiful views, especially at night of the surrounding coast line. Though the rangers where very friendly and helpful in providing us with a site big enough to accommodate our 35 ft. class A, I don't think anything larger would fit. We did encounter some low hanging branches entering the park. Roads are rutted gravel/dirt. We only had 30 amp service and the last day at the park the temps got down to the mid 30s, and my surge protected kept cutting power to our rig, probably because of all the electric heaters running. We would visit again only if we got the same site 104 and because we did enjoy touring around Port Dover, Long Point and some nearby wineries. - vincee

The address says Radical Road, but if coming from Port Dover the name is Nelson St. The name changes at the county line. This park is 90% seasonals with around 25 sites for short term stays. The overnighters are all around the office complex. with the seasonals further out on the west and east sides. Our site was directly across from the office registration, and recreation room. It was a fairly level, grass pull-through that was a bit on the tight side to get on the pad. There is not much room to maneuver and also a few trees to get around. Anyone with an RV longer than 30 ft may want to get a water view site. That's where I saw some big rigs park. The hookups were towards the rear with water and electric closer to the center. They all worked fine. There isn't much privacy between spaces, but the park is nicely landscaped and one of the best private ones we have experienced on this trip so far. Each site has a table and the "fire pit" is a depression in the ground. The OTA TV is all American stations from across the lake. Despite the trees, I was lucky enough to get satellite TV through an opening. The best place for satellite is the water view sites area since there is an open field behind them. Wi-Fi can be marginal. I wasn't able to get on the first night, but the next day was better, although slow. There is a computer in the rec room that can be used just in case. A trail to the shoreline leads one to the park's own private beach and boat rentals. In the distance is Long Point to the south and Port Dover to the east. Even with the tight quarters, I still wouldn't hesitate to come back here again. - Onemoretrail

Quiet provincial park near small town of Port Burwell on Lake Erie. Stayed in Leander loop with a group. Good sized grass covered sites, most fairly level. Lots of facilities for kids. Short hiking trails showing off local flora. Port Burwell is home to one of Canada's O-class submarines (decommissioned), and the tour is money well spent. - Whitby Guy

This is one of the nicest and under-rated provincial parks in Ontario. Clean new facilities, with staff that makes the rounds to ensure everything is well taken care of. Would definitely return.
The beach here is 2.5 km long. It's not groomed because they want to keep it natural and that's OK with me (except for cigarette butts).
Several of the larger trees within the park were cut down over the past year or so because of damage from the Emerald Ash Borer. I noticed some sites seemed sparse (we are used to a fair amount of privacy between sites and we choose the parks based on this). I had not visited before though so had nothing to compare it to. Our site (151) was perfect. - scratchmyback

Spent the long weekend out at Red Oaks and could not be more happy with a place..will be looking into going seasonal next year. Lots of activities for young and old. They make you feel welcome there, people and staff very friendly. Rates good. After the dance, become very quiet for those who wanted to turn in for the night Would go back. Looking into seasonal next year. Even through the rain was a great weekend. - Camping 195

Beautifully shaded park with large sites. Unfortunately the washrooms not cleaned regularly, the park had a foul odor(sewage), and the water smelt of sulfur. Playground was old and littered with trash. My family found this park was not well maintained at all and would not recommend visiting this park. - vixon

Stayed mid week, 4 nights for $85. Nice and quite during the week. Pool is older but well kept. Very well shaded. No satellite reception in upper areas due to trees. A bit close to the road but the noise is low. Nice playground for the kids. Sites are level on pull thrus. Upper level not bad but no grass, could be a bit of a mess in the rain. Owners on site are quite nice. - bert64
