I have stayed at Gordon’s Park every summer for the past three years and have enjoyed every visit so much that I plan to return every year for as long as Rita and Terry are around to provide such exceptional hospitality and extensive knowledge of the natural history of Manitoulin. Whether you’re interested in geology, astronomy, hiking, biking, birding or just relaxing by the pool, at your spacious campsite or around the campfire, this is the place for you. The dark sky preserve at the back of the property, at which annual star parties and weekly or private astronomy sessions are held, allow for unparalleled night sky viewing and the extensive trail network offers exposure to the natural flora and fauna of Manitoulin Island.
I STRONGLY recommend the Women’s Outdoor Weekend, which provides you the opportunity to play, create, move, learn and relax through participation in a wide variety of activities and workshops, offered by local experts. Some of my personal favourites included building a birdhouse, stamp carving, going on a treasure hunt, circle dancing, foot scrub and a guided nature walk. And did I mention the FOOD? All meals are included and DELICIOUS. I don’t eat that well at home and there was a huge variety from which to choose. I was so full after every meal! What a rejuvenating weekend for the mind, body and spirit.
Can’t wait until the next visit
