Just came back from a visit to the Indian Line campground in Brampton. An absolute fraud being run by the TRCA. We had the misfortune of booking three campsites at this location as we decided to go camping over the long weekend at the last minute.
The campground is so horrible that we cancelled our two day permit within two hours of reaching there. It ruined our long weekend. Don't even think of going there and if you have to go there, first go and check the campground before you check in.
1. Landscape - the place doesn't even look like a park. No large trees or large green patches. And there is a railway line passing through the site.
2. There were so many RVs and tents in so small place, it reminded me of a slum. No privacy whatsoever. One tent is allocated a 10’X10’ piece of land with no separation/hedges between them.
3. No facilities or activities - the swimming pool is a 10' X 15' hole in the ground. Even apartment buildings have better pools. The website of this campground shows a splash of some other campground of TRCA, which is basically a fraud. There is one small pond, where fishing is supposedly done. We did not see anybody around there.
4. Ambiance - this place is surrounded by highways. You can see and hear vehicles passing by and can see tall buildings in the surrounding areas.
I feel that TRCA is running a scam here to generate some cash flow from unaware visitors. They should close this place at the earliest and convert into a day park.Edited: 31 July 2011, 03:50
