Camping without a car...

I live in toronto, and I'm trying to find a good campground, preferably with swimming. However, I don't have a car, so I need a place that I could take a go bus/train or greyhound to... any suggestions?

You can get to Rouge Park by TTC and camp there. http://www.rougepark.com/index.php

If you're hoping to get to a place like Algonquin or Killarney, see http://www.parkbus.ca/

Ontario Parks provides a park locator here:

www.ontarioparks.com/english/locator.html

In the site, you can find specific facilities (i.e. camping, swimming) and then see if there is GO train/bus or Greyhound.

See also Canadian Tire's Camping site:

canadiantire.ca/AST/…Camping.jsp

It also has a locator on it.

I'm not sure best how to help you without the following information:

Are you looking for a place to hike in to or are you looking for a campground in a city?

How far are you willing to travel?

When you say swimming, I assume that you mean in a lake as opposed to a pool?
