Fresh air with the scent of eastern white cedar, roasting hotdogs on a stick over an open fire, and a black sky filled with the brilliance of the Milky Way. Whether you are roughing it in a tent, travelling in a luxury rolling RV, or set up camp on a site somewhere in between, your choice to stay in Bruce County for the season or a weekend getaway will reset your inner compass.

In Bruce County, camping is about being one with nature, distraction-free family time, early morning camp coffee, children looking under rocks and parents helping with the lifting, looking up at starry skies all night long without the glow of the city, telling stories around the campfire, walking to your friend's site…roughing it with having the creature comfort no more than five minutes away. Camping here is about having a day to remember without having to get into your car. Drive up to your campsite, unpack and enjoy!
