First Weekend Trip of the Season


I usually like to do a short haul weekend trip at the beginning of the season to ensure everything is working OK.

I went to a Provincial Park that is 1.5 hours drive east of Toronto on the shores of Lake Ontario. Very scenic and natural setting ... hard to believe I was setup next to Lake Ontario listening to the waves (and rain) as I fell asleep. Living in Toronto, Lake Ontario's shoreline is totally different compared to this Park (Presqu'ile).

Since the weather wasn't co-operating (rainy & below seasonal temps), they only had 4 campgrounds open - I had one campground all to myself the first night and shared it with a trailer on the 2nd night.

Everything was OK on the RV too so was able to spend time checking out the park, rather than doing impromptu repairs.

The park has two drawbacks though ... it now has the tick that carries Lyme disease and, once you get inland a bit from the shores of Lake Ontario, it has a lot of swampy areas which means ... Mosquitoes, and a lot of them, in the warmer weather.

Canada is one of our future destinations. We have friends in Newfoundland that have asked us to visit. They make it sound very tempting!

We're waiting for the rain to stop before we get out for our first trip. Hope that day comes before July.

Newfoundland is the only place, in Canada, I haven't been to yet that I want to go to. And, once again, due to lack of vacation time, it won't be this year!!

Have never been to Presqu'ile, but we go to Sandbanks nearly every year. We love the area.
We were also out for the weekend. If your weather was anything like ours, there wasn't an insect to be seen. They were all just dreaming of the misery they will inflict on us in a few weeks!

Hi BillJ,

haven't been to Sandbanks since I was a little kid ... mainly b/c it's more of a sun&fun park and I'm more into the trails and parks in northern Ontario.

No bugs at all.

Presqu'ile is one of those parks to bring a bicycle (which I didn't do).
