Avoid this pit of a campground. We spent 4 miserable days at this park and will never go back. The check in staff sent us down roads that could not handle a big rig. After getting stuck on branches and backing out onto a side road, a maintenance worker helped us down a road that only had the issue of low hanging utility lines... He held up the lines with a long piece of lumber while we drove under them to our mud bog of a site. The site was so sloped that I needed to use very block I carry to get even close to level. We were in a large mud hole that was as large as our rig. Then we find out that they don't have sewer hookups and that their dump station is up a hill and on a corner such that big rigs cannot get to it. We ask about options and they tell us they have a mobile dumping service... for $30... only on Tuesday and maybe on Wednesday. We pay and wait on Tuesday morning, and wait some more, and wait some more and finally go to the office to check the plans for the mobile dump service before they finally showed up. The bathrooms and showers were never cleaned. I had the same grass and mud in the shower stall on every day. The only positive for this park, other than leaving, was they had working wifi. Stay somewhere else. - Gary Gilliam

Although I didn't get the warm and fuzzies when I called to reserve, it was a decent park. Making the reservations was a little frustrating. I was given "yes" and "no" answers, had to calculate what I owed and I had to initiate an email confirmation. However, when we got there, the owner (who was the same lady on the phone during reservations) was very pleasant and helpful. The store didn't have set hours so when we needed something we had to knock on her trailer for her to open the store. That was annoying!
The Dump Station is 10 feet away from the childrens playground. That was weird. They didn't seem to have Sewer for transient sites but our spot was wonderful and clean. Right by the river. The locals were really friendly. The bathrooms and showers we found to be very clean. The whole park in fact. It seems like an older park. There wasn't anything fun to do except for the river and horseshoes. They did have a carnival for the kids that weekend and a Tiki Party at night. It was only for locals but they encouraged us to attend. The only thing that bothered us from not going there again is that the train passes right by the park and it sounds like its going through it. Our whole camper shook. Scary!
Would we go back....only if we had to. - Gabriela

Definitely a communication problems. Called two weeks prior to book for a three nights stay. Asked if we could bring our own wood, was told yes but was not informed there was a fire ban. Never told that the pool was out of commission before booking, when we did ask once on site, we were told that it was gonna be working hopefully that day, but the whole decking around out was torn out for repair, obviously was not a small fix and was not fixed by the day we left. The store was open at random hours, couldn't quite figure out the hours. We were there for four days and not once did the washroom get cleaned and never had paper towel or soap to wash your hands. Was quite difficult to figure out which site was what number and no help from staff on site. We would definitely not go there again. - melspring25

The park itself is beautiful, set in among mature trees. A sign warns of no units longer than 25 feet. Even with a 22 foot trailer, we found it difficult to maneuver through the park. The hostess was not particularly friendly, or helpful. The hookups are placed in the wrong locations, with the result that we had to drive into a back-in site, then use the next-door site to free up our tow vehicle. She then booked a fellow camper onto that site while we were away from our site. That meant that when we went to leave the next morning, we had to have the neighbor move off his site in order that we could get our tow vehicle to the front of our trailer to hook up. The dump station cannot be accessed by a 22 foot trailer easily. Although the camp itself is quiet and beautiful, we will not be returning. - Kaygee

We had a lovely river site. We were happy the neighbors weren't there that weekend, because there was no separation of sites. The worst experience was one of the staff "rangers", he was very rude!! Unfortunately that is the only reason I will not return. - RobynTheCanadian

After a long HOT drive, we checked into this park - we should have kept on driving.
Office staff was pleasant. Computer went down when I checked in so I did not receive itemized receipt until a young man showed up at our RV later and asked me to sign their paperwork. That's when I saw the $3.50 "reservation fee". I told him I'd sign it if he took off the reservation fee. He went back to the office never to be seen again.
Sites out back are serviced, if you call 15 amps and water service. The $45 +$3.50 +HST (tax) amounted to $54 and change Canadian!! The full service sites in front appear to have mainly "permanent" residents.
Wi-Fi was free, but not usable unless you were very close to office.
Washroom appeared to be new, but the floors were wet when I visited each time - safety hazard??
I know the reservation fee is minor, but it is the principle. We showed up unannounced - we did not reserve, so why the fee?
I would not recommend this park. I certainly won't stay there again. - DCM/JMB

Campground was mostly full of seasonal campers and permanent locals. Sites were grass or gravel, with roadways being also gravel and dirt, which was a problem because of dust with every entering and leaving vehicle. Also, Wi-Fi was free, but not usable unless you were very close to office. Sites were partially wooded, but I managed to get a satellite signal and used a booster for Wi-Fi. Dump station was way in the back and hard to get to with my 32' motorhome. Office staff was helpful, but that did not improve the facilities. I will probably not come back here again. - judy_online

We had fairly low expectations before arriving here after reading earlier reviews. We decided to try it anyway given that it is across the street from Santa's Village, which was where we were headed. The park itself was fine. The sites are really small and packed in, but there are lots of trees around, which made it a bit nicer. The bathrooms were acceptable - not the best we've seen, but not the worst either. We know there was a pool there, but we didn't go looking for it because we had enough stuff to do. The staff were helpful. Most people camping here have young children, and the go-carts from the theme park are a stone's throw away so if you're looking for a quiet place to camp, this isn't it! However, the deal they offer with two nights of camping plus two-day passes to the park is a good one, so it's worth checking out for that reason. - happy-camper

This campground is affiliated with Santa's Village across the road. It is all dirt and pine needles. There is no sewer hookups as they have been outlawed by the town. You pay top dollar for a poor site then have to pay an additional $5.00 to dump your tanks. The showers and restrooms were filthy. The worst we have ever used. The roadways are very narrow and you have to be very careful that you don't clip trees when using them. There are a number of permanent units there that are in various stages of decay. All together a very poor place to stay. There are other campgrounds in the area including a KOA. I wished I had stayed there. I will never stay at this campground again. - murph164

Stayed for 18 days. Expensive, close to town. Bathrooms and showers were dirty-Needs a update. One washer and dryer. It's cheaper to go to town to do the laundry. Pool is nice, clean. It was closed on one hot day as owners ran out of chemicals. It would have been a close drive to town for them to get, but they chose not to do so. Not overly friendly owners. Sites are big, not close to others, no issues with hydro or water or sewers. Short walk to the river. But not able to use docks unless you have a boat. We traveled with 2 - 14 year olds who were bored. No store wood and ice only. Will not return. Many old seasonal trailers that are a eye sore. Needs many updates. Look around you will get better parks for less money. - Ronandbeth

Rate in CAD $. As others have said, water pressure drops to a trickle a few times a day. 30A service, but when you run 23A and above, the voltage drops below 104 ! Can't use your AC and microwave at the same time. Not really 30A...more like 20A. A few of the seasonal units are neglected. The owners are very nice, the pool is very clean. High price doesn't match the park. I guess low availability of full hookup parks in the area drives the price up. - Presidio40

This is one of the worst places we have ever stayed. Muskoka Ridge is a very old park and it appears as though no upgrades have been done. We only had 30 amp, no WiFi, no cable, and at times the water was only a trickle. The owner just doesn't seem to want to put any money in the place. Even the picnic table looked like the original one from 40 years ago. The road was very narrow, with vehicles parked in front of their sites, so we had a very tight jockey to get out with our 40-footer. Maybe if you had a 30-ft. unit, you'd be all right, but we will never stay here again. - wallysmom

This is a beautiful provincial park with lots of mature trees and natural surroundings. Our site was large, level, mostly treed, quiet (radio-free zone) and private. Campsites on each side of us were quite far away which is how we like it. Be careful when choosing a site to see how far it is for the electrical hook-up as we needed an extra extension cord to reach. Lots of good trails to explore. A large moose with antlers was seen just feet away while walking on the Homesteader's Trail! Stubb's Falls is amazing but you must exercise extreme caution if entering the water. Big Bend Lookout is also a must-see in the park. Park store was closed while we were there since it was after Labour Day. Saw the brand new visitor centre but sadly it only had a small souvenir store and meeting room inside; would be nice if they had habitat displays and some info on park history. Huntsville is very close by for shopping/dining and has an awesome & quaint downtown area. - naturelover

This is one of the better Provincial Parks we've been in. We were in a fairly new section with about 8 pull-throughs. The site was great with plenty of room for the coach and car. As with most Provincial Parks we only had electricity (50Amp) although there was a water spigot at each of these sites. They were gravel as compared to sand and dirt in the other campgrounds. It was also shady enough for the warm days. It's a big park area wise. Actually have to drive to the beaches or store. Fishing was pretty good in the main lake (Arrowhead Lake) with quite a few large mouth bass caught and released. We would stay here again for that closer to nature camping. Only drawback was there were no laundry facilities. Had to go into Huntsville for that. Unfortunately there was a fire ban on so missed the campfire. - Shacky

Typical of an Ontario provincial park. Very close to Huntsville, which has every amenity you would ever need. The park is close by to Highway 11, so you will hear it at night. We had an unserviced site (east river #336). Tight squeeze to back into it with our 25' RV. Sites are basic, with picnic table and fire ring. Very close together and although we were in a "radio free zone" it was noisy as hell due to the "partiers" two campsites over (think about 50' away). No enforcement of noise rules at all by park staff. (it was a Friday night). Wouldn't return there. - mnj100

There are beautiful sites in this park. Unfortunately they are all seasonal. Those left for transients are as tight as in south Florida. It feels like you are camping in someone's back yard. We met family who came from the south while we came from the north. Unfortunately during our family dinner one of the seasonals started a fire throwing on bags of leaves and then started to chain saw up a tree. Dinner ruined between the noise and the smoke.
The only adult we saw was a lady working in the front office. Although she was pleasant all other tasks were being handled by teenagers. So there was no enforcement of rules. Loose dogs and golf carts piloted by 4 or 5 children running around even after dark. Roads partially blocked by multiple vehicles parked near seasonal sites. Such a shame as it could be a wonderful park. - Smasma

We stayed at a site in amongst some seasonals. It was a large spot and quiet. Our grandkids loved it..pools, bikes for rent, playground. This is an older KOA and a bit rough around the edges but the staff are very friendly. Their is a nine hole par 3 golf course and boats for rent across the road both operated by the campground. Store has lots of stuff. Washrooms are tired but fairly clean. - Ron and Lynda

We’re quite familiar with KOAs, and this one is not up to standards. It is in need of some updating. One of the things that we didn’t like was that the seasonals were mixed throughout the campground, and many of them were older and run down. Water pressure on our full-service site was very low at peak times. We had requested a large site, but we had barely enough room to park and place the picnic table in front of our trailer. The front desk seemed to be run by teenagers (absence of adults), although they were polite and friendly. While we didn’t use the pools, they were attractive and well used by regulars. The interior roads are gravel and bumpy, but it is easy to manage large rigs through the campground. Free wi-fi was available at the front building and pool areas only. The campground is a short drive to downtown Gravenhurst. We stayed for three nights. - N1Hub

Camp sites are located among tall pine trees so there is a lot of shade at all times of the day. It felt like were camping in a big forest. It was a bit tight getting into the site with our 36 foot motorhome but really no problem. There were nice trees between our site and our neighbors. The washroom facilities were older but clean. It took quite a long time to get hot water in the showers. The WIFI at our site was excellent. We appreciated the quiet, natural environment. - MkvCjv

Called ahead and said I had a big rig and was told it would not be a problem. I was given a pull through site. It was a tight squeeze getting in and there was no way I would be able to pull out forward when I left. The owner needs to do some major tree trimming through out the park to make it big rig friendly.
This campground is in need of some sprucing up as far as the facilities go. The location is great and if you have a smaller rig it will do fine. Definitely not big rig friendly as it is now. - cypressdrive

Although this park is not in immaculate condition, it is a natural hidden gem. We prefer wilderness camping over RV parking lot type parks, and absolutely loved this park. With mature trees and spacious sites you get a real feel of wilderness camping like at Algonquin park, yet you have 30amp, a pool (mind you it's pretty cool but covered in a greenhouse so air is very hot), and free wifi that worked! There is a small playground. Our kids had freedom to play and be kids here. If you are looking for a Disney quality resort this place will not be for you, but if you want a peaceful camping experience for families in a natural environment than this park is awesome! We will be back! We were in site C7 which is a large pull thru and had no issues getting in or out with our 40' rig. - Siaylaaa

The rate is for a W/E pull through site, includes taxes and reflects a Good Sam discount. No cable but free Wi-Fi in the office area. We stayed just one night but enough to tell this is a very nice campground. The way in is a little bumpy and inside we had a steep gravel road downhill to our site but the site itself was very spacious, good level and good hookup access. Lots of privacy, we couldn't even see any other campers. Just a few meters to walk to the beach, no water view though. Very friendly and helpful staff. During our stay we locked ourselves out and the owners did everything to help us out. In the summer season there seems to be lots of activities for families with kids. We didn't use any facilities. If in the area we would stay again. - TheSchweitzers

Campground is mainly seasonal but they do have three very nice pull-through sites with full hook-up for big rigs. Reserve in advance! Clean grounds and family operated. Would return if we were in the area again. - Aftica
