With camping being one of the most popular pastimes around, it can be hard to find great camping spots — especially if you’re booking last minute.

Whether you live in Toronto and are looking for an escape from the city, visiting from out of province and hoping to find something new, or simply searching for a last-minute camping spot — weve got you covered! 

Here are three awesome Campertunities for Southern Ontario!

Only about two hours from Toronto, this spot offers some epic Campertunities. There is lakeside tenting and cabins, right on Rice Lake — perfect for family weekends, reunions, bachelor/bachelorette weekends, or just a great getaway.

There are many activities right on site, including paddle boarding, sand volleyball, badminton, a punching bag workout area (!!!), and much more!

Also only two hours from Toronto, Eagle Eye is a great chance to get away from the city without having to commit to too much travel. You can pitch a tent or bring an RV/Trailer.  

This spot is animal-friendly, so bring your pups! There is a BBQ, fire pit, sauna, lounge area in a private forest, and lots of space to wander and reflect.  

The Kawarthas have plenty of opportunities for exploration as well. Indian Point Provincial Park is a thirty-minute drive with plenty of hiking. Balsam Lake Provincial Park is also close, and can be explored in the same!  

Whatever you do, don’t miss the Kawartha Dairy Ice Cream while anywhere near the Kawarthas! 🍦

3. Lake Duborne, Blind River

If you’re feeling more adventurous, Blind River offers some of the best camping you’ll ever experience. It’s a journey from downtown Toronto, but absolutely worth it — and with some amazing sites along the way. This spot is off-grid, features 140 feet of waterfront, and includes a personal campsite for your tent, trailer, or small RV. It is truly the cottage experience. 

There is a dock and swim ladder to spend your days swimming or lounging, with plenty of sand for kids. The lake is an incredible playground with amazing swimming right off the dock.  

Lake Duborne is very close to ​​Matinenda Provincial Park, where there are hikes and lots of outdoor fun. You are also right on the North channel of Lake Huron, so don’t miss this opportunity to check out one of the Great Lakes! 

However, the beauty of Blind River is you barely have to leave your site for a great adventure. You won’t find views like this — and with this much privacy — anywhere else!
