Windmill Point Park & Campground
Reviewed 6 October 2012

If you like the very public campgrounds, where you are constantly surrounded by others, Then this is the campground for you. Windmill point is built around the quarry, that is about 26 ft deep at its deepest point.

There are quite a few camper trailers that call this place home. Most people here are very friendly , and this is a very safe place. The gates are closed at night, and the owners/ management are always on hand.

The park is commonly used as a SCUBA training facility, with its warmer waters, training platforms, and sunken items. There are at least 5 different boats that have been submerged here for your enjoyment. The quarry is stocked with fish and presents a great opportunity to get a safe relaxing dive in

Friendly staff, beautiful camp ground! I was first against camping here but my husband really wanted to & so did the kids, so I caved & boy am I glad I did!! We had so much fun! I was also against swimming in the quarry thinking it would be not clean, but I was wrong again, it was so clean that I could see the bottom, it is so much cleaner then any beach in the area!! My kids & I were in the water every moment we got!! They did fun activities for the kids & adults, also the seasonal campers made my family feel welcome there which was great! As we have been other places where the seasonal campers were not so friendly:( We can't get enough of this place & have already booked our second camping trip there for the next long weekend:). We camped here in a pop-up trailer.
