Campgrounds:

Killbear Provincial Park; Our rating: ****

$48.31 (incl tax) per night for a site with electrical hookup, no water

They were very well organized and relatively clean. The staff was patrolling the campground frequently. There was no broken faucets, clogged up toilets, or trash around. Very spacious and private sites. Will go again.

Muskoka Ridge Trailer Park (Bracebridge); Our rating: *

$50.85 (incl tax) per night for a site that was supposed to have electricity, but it turned out to have only a cut off cable. The camp site was very small, not well leveled and had privacy issues. Sites were very close to each other, little trees in between offering little privacy. The main office would benefit from a face lift. Bathroom area had those annoying taps you have to hold open to get water out. Bathroom and showers could be more private. Despite the owner trying her best to accommodate us I do not think I will choose this camp site again.

Bancroft Campground; Our rating: ***

$29.38 (tax incl.) per night. $5 for internet access. We also needed to buy an adapter to make use of a trailer hookup for our regular extension cord. Water was at the site. The only washroom available was at a main office. Upon arrival we got choices of different camp sites, most of which turn out to be unavailable due to occupants.

Warsaw Caves; Our rating: **

$38.00 (tax incl.) per night. Reservation was difficult. First no one responded to an e-mail. Then no one picked up the phone. Then when the reservation was done over the phone there was no confirmation of any kind as to reservation. When we arrived at 7pm the welcome office was closed. We set up a tent “somewhere” as without a camp map we did not know what red, white, or orange arrows meant. A fellow neighboring camper admitted that had bad experience himself with staff having unfriendly attitude and inconsistent information.

The sites themselves were very nice: spacious and private with tons of trees around. Unfortunately no site had any electrical outlet access. We were cut off from the world in darkness, because neither GPS nor G3 could find us.
