Georgian Bay Park
The newest addition to Simcoe County on the list, Georgian Bay Park offers camping options as well as trailers and RVs with fully equipped amplification sites and adapters. Explore the park, go for a swim in the pool or in Georgian Bay, or take a very short drive (just a few minutes) to the world’s largest freshwater beach!
Bass Lake Provincial Park

In addition to all the activities offered by the park itself, Discovery Harbor, Sainte-Marie-au-pays-des-Hurons, Wye Marsh and Casino Rama are all only a 30 minute drive away.
Another beautiful park located in Wasaga Beach, Sun Park has an added benefit with the usual volleyball, horseshoes and swimming you will do. On Friday and Saturday nights they have a live DJ who plays all the best hits of the summer for a camping experience filled with music! Obviously you are also very close to all the bars and restaurants that Wasaga Beach has to offer!
If you can’t decide how close to nature you want to get, being able to choose between tent pitches, RV pitches, or a cabin means that if sleeping on the floor isn’t your style, you can always. enjoy all the rest of the campsite the experience has to offer. Barrie KOA also offers many amenities and special theme weekends throughout the season.
Craigleith RV Resort & Camping
Although it’s a bit further if you live closer to Muskoka, Craigleith RV Resort & Camping definitely worth the trip. As well as being just 12 km from the always beautiful Blue Mountain, it also has an outdoor swimming pool, clubhouse, playground, bike paths and pet-friendly sites to help you. that you can also take your four-legged friend!
Happy bee family camping
With over 40 years of experience providing campers with an incredible experience, Happy bee family camping are pros when it comes to the pleasure of outdoor living. Spend time playing mini-golf, bingo, and horseshoes, take a dip in the pool, catch fish in the pond and top it off with roasting marshmallows on the fire. It seems perfect to us.
Being tucked away right between Barrie and Orillia means it’s just a hopping, hopping and hopping to the fun of camping. Heidi’s Campground is a family-friendly site with many amenities and located close to many local attractions such as Rama Casino, Burl’s Creek, Big Curve Acres Petting Farm, and the Barrie Triple Drive-in Theater!
When you stay at Nicolston Dam, you’ll spend as much time on the water as you do at your campsite. Located on the incredible Nottawasaga River, this site offers all the kayaking, canoeing and fishing you could hope for, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro.
The Buckeroo tent
Last on our list is a super unique experience for those who don’t want to do the heavy lifting that comes with camping. The Buckeroo tent is an off-grid experience available on Airbnb and is ready to go as soon as you get there! You’ve been working hard all week, so why should you be working more while on vacation?
