This was my first time camping in an Ontario provincial park, I booked online, 2 weeks before our chosen weekend. (last minute I know, right?) I chose White Spruce because other reviews recommended it as being one of the best. They were right. We had site 25, if I return I probably won't choose the same site. It was a little too rocky to securely peg the tent down the way I wanted. All the other sites looked great though. Sheltered adequately, close to the water, plenty of trees to string up clotheslines and tarps, very close to Gut Lake Trail, and low and behold two flushing toilets. I checked other campgrounds nearby and they didn't have flushing toilets. we lucked out.
We hiked all three trails, Swan Lake and Beaver Dam Trail are about 1-1:30 hours walk away so we drove to those and hiked them. There is parking available at the trail entrance. Gut Lake Trail was by far my favourite. Huge rock formations and an incredible view of the lake. We saw foxes, hawks, rabbits, chipmunks, turtles and frogs!
The staff were great, always smiling and waving when they passed by your site. Super helpful too. We got lost on our way to one of the trails and a park ranger pulled over when we waved and helped us get back on track.
There is a gas station and general store near to the park entrance. I advise not buying much there because it's overpriced but it's good in a pinch. (we forgot hot dog buns.) They rent canoes, kayaks and paddleboats at the gas station. They make two drop offs a day, 12 and 6pm. So get in early and you can spend most of the day out on the water.
I definitely recommend Grundy Lake and I will definitely be returning! amazing!
