This was our families first trip to Summer House and it will definetly will not be the last. This camp ground is very well maintained and there are always grounds people working on the resort.

There are many activities for people of all ages, too many to list. The beach is perfect, not too big and not too small. There are even water activities at the beach to take part in. The water was very clean and a decent temperature.

Our family travelled in a 27ft travel trailer and we had one of the tighter sites. We still did not feel like our site was cramped at all. The site was well maintained and with very nice seasonal camper neighbours. While we were there we booekd again for next year, we were that impressed!

Overall if your thinking of going, GO! You will not be dissapointed.

Happy Camping.

Room Tip: Sites on row D are close to the water and all other amenities.

We have been camping for 15 years. This is the nicest camp ground we have stayed at. Beautiful beach and lots of things for kids to do. We travelled 7.5 hours to get here and we definately will be coming back. Wish we had found this place 10 years ago. We had a great week!

For someone who camps in the wilderness to the extreme. I was very impressed with the grounds, the clean lake, and all the activities for kids and adults alike. The only complaint or warning I can give to future visitors is..... The ground is very rocky and hard. (no fault of the owners) I would suggest bringing the stakes that screw into the ground to secure your tent.

We stayed at siteA2. However, A1 - A4 are all great water sites. Great view and semi-private with water access to swim out to a raft. Watch out for slippery rocks.

The wildlife, especially the chipmunks are very friendly. Washrooms are cleaned at least twice a day but cleaner than some camping sites. Staff was great!!!!!!! Friendly and helpful.

We will return next year for sure.

Thank you summer house for a relaxing trip away from home.

P.S. Take the short 10 minute drive to Tobermory and check out the grotto and all the neat and quaint shops.

We stayed at the B&B at Summer House Park on a long weekend, and had an enjoyable time. Although we spent most of the weekend hiking in the Bruce Peninsula National Park (about a 15 minute drive from SHP), we had some time to enjoy the park and its facilities. The B&B is conveniently located close to the beach and the main office and offers three private rooms in all. We stayed at the Blue Heron room, which comes with a private bathroom across the hall. There is a shared kitchen (with mini fridge, coffee/tea and kettle) and living room for all guests. The accommodations were clean enough, although there were suspicious stains on some of towels that were provided in the bathroom. As guests in the B&B, we had private access to the restaurant from 8:30-9:00 am for breakfast. as well as a small outdoor fireplace and firewood in the yard adjacent to the B&B.

SHP is a family oriented park, and accordingly there are activities for people of all ages. We particularly enjoyed roaming the lake on water bicycles that were available for rent at the boat rental office.

Overall, SHP is a well run facility. As a couple, we felt a little out of place; however, we would definitely recommend SHP for families.

We have visited SHP several times over the last four years and love it! The staff are friendly and top notch and our kids prefer this park over any we have been too. This year we were looking for a seasonal place to keep our trailer and we looked within a two hour radius of our home. We failed to find anything that made our kids as excited, so this year we decided to stay seasonally at SHP...a 4 1/2-5 hr drive from our home....that should tell you just how much we like it there. You don't have to pay to have a 4 minute shower as well and to me that is priceless! lol
So far we have had everyone there bend over backwards to make every stay as wonderful as the last...

My family and I headed here last summer in a trailer. The place can get very busy on the weekend but is not very loud or feel to crowded. There is lots to do for everyone, even my mom who is in her 60's enjoyed swimming in Miller lake. Clean, with a relax, quiet environment. Nice grounds for walking and staff was very friendly. Close to Tobermory and lots of beaches. If you don't like feeling like you are in the middle of no where don't go here.

Just returned from a three day weekend stay in a cottage at Summer House Park. We are a family of four with two young children, and went with two other families who stayed in the cottages adjacent to ours, Cottage 9, the Osprey's Nest. The cottages were authentically rustic, simply but attractively furnished, well equipped and perfectly clean. The view from Cottage 9 is spectacular, looking out over the lake from the edge of a sheer rock cliff. The cliff was of concern with the kids and we were obliged to improvise a string barrier. We easily prepared meals three families in the basic but functional cottage kitchen. Remember to bring sugar, salt and pepper along with the more obvious milk, bread, etc.! If you forget anything, the camp shop was remarkably well stocked and a wonder of organization given the tiny space. The sand beach is weed-free, though otherwise typical for cottage country. A nice, modern kid's playground and an ice cream stand that were popular with our four and six year olds. Overall a very enjoyable stay - we will go back.

Room Tip: Our friends stayed in Cottages 7 and 8, we stayed in 9. All have bathrooms, and, though Cottage 7 ha...
