Review of Darlington Park, Ontario, Canada

Filed under: Camping,Canada,Places To Visit,Video — Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am

Mike Moon did a video review of the Darlington Park camping site in Ontario Canada. This is a 8:50 minute video that shows you far more than I could describe. If you are trapped at home wishing you could get out into the wild, watch this and enjoy the birds, flowers and wildlife.

MOON ECHOES: Tourist in my own town (Darlington Park – Ontario, Canada)

It sounds like you need to be careful which campsite you choose:

“We survived the evening just fine… very noisy. Lots of traffic, trains, whistles, certainly not what I was anticipating when I wanted to get away from it all. I thought that the traffic would ease up, but there was a constant whoosing sound of transports and cars in the distance.”

They got a new campsite further away from the highway to avoid the noise. The campsites look very private and there are lots of trees everywhere. There is a general store nearby where you can pick up supplies.

“I found the prices to be quite reasonable. The firewood was five dollars [Canadian] a pack, which is cheaper than other parks that we’ve been to. And the prices in the store were very reasonable. Good little place. Great guy was in there. He had a good attitude, good sales. Made us feel welcome and at home.”

The park is near Lake Ontario, so you can enjoy the water lapping at the shore.

I love the video of the swings, especially when the camera focuses on the point where the swings connect with the frame. They squeak and bend under the weight of the swinger. Enjoy the sound of the lake water hitting the sand. It’s a “kick in the butt.”

Drive to Ski Hill – Apex Mountain

Sometimes we have skiing as late as May in Utah, but it’s very rare and really rocky. If you still have a skiing jones, you can head up to Canada for some spring skiing. The area is beautiful. Just make sure you don’t get lost.
