    We have held the Ontario Summer Rally there the past 3 years. Bronte just held their second Halloween weekend this past weekend and I believe the Pinery did too..

    Think Tracey and ourselves would prefer the upper pull thru sites, but these are closer to the trains.. So might need to look at the Riverside section (sites 301-314)..

    Don't know if we will make it, but having lived in the area and camped at the park, I can tell you:
    1. It's Bear Country, so precautions are required.
    2. No matter where you are in the park, you will hear the trains.

    Nice smaller park though. Fairly close to Parry Sound for supply runs.

    Once again, we have prior commitments for that weekend, however, if I find time, I might buzz over there and spend an afternoon visitating everyone for a few hours.
