“Nice waterfront sites”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

The lake is heavily developed and motor activity can be loud and frequent, and this was during the week in August.
The sites are smallish and tightly situated. Most are occupied with monster tents, at times with several, not to mention trailers, dogs and trucks. Not exactly rustic, wilderness camping, but it doesn't aim to be.
The beach is very children and family friendly.
The unpowered sites came out to almost $50 per nite, facilities were cleaned daily.

“Intimate, quiet park!”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

We visited Lake St. Peter Provincial Park for the August long weekend. We had one large tent and two small ones, plus a screen tent. Although some of the sites are quite small, ours was not too bad, 22m x 10m. The rectangular shape actually worked quite nicely!

We had four young male teens-adults with us. I think due to the smaller size of the park the boys were a little bit bored. The beach by the main parking is quite small, but nice. The water was VERY cold! But we're having a cold summer so likely not typical. The hiking trail just outside the park, while only 4km, has a lot of inclines so it's a good challenge, at least for us parents!

The comfort station has obviously been renovated recently, and was very clean.

The only issue I have is that dogs are not allowed in the water - there is a launching pad into the lake down the road that we went to a couple of times so the dog got a couple of little swims, but it would be nice if the roped-off swimming areas were opened up for pets.

All in all it was very quiet, intimate, and I felt very safe at this park (not a lot of wildlife either). A bit of a drive from Toronto, but it's worth it, I would definitely go here again!
