Campgrounds Near Toronto

We're planning a trip to Toronto in September and would greatly appreciate any campground recommendations. We'd like to stay as close to the city as possible.

Look into Bronte Creek Provincial Park. From there you can take the QEW highway into Toronto or the Go Train which is a 10min drive from the campsite.

Valens Conservation is a little farther out off Hwy 6 but a nice campsite.

There is a private park just west of the town of Milton. Not sure of the name.

There is also a KOA north of Toronto on the 400HWY. I believe you will hear traffic at that location. There may be more. Hopefully the Toronto folks will chime in.

I'd second Bronte Creek Provincial Park:
Welcome to Bronte Creek Provincial Park

Besides being a nice park to camp in, an additional advantage of Bronte Creek is that it is not far from the Bronte GO Train station which will get you right to Union Station at the bottom of the city.

Might also want to check out Toronto's Conservation Authority Campgrounds:

Go to the TRCA link above that Ranger Jay recommends.

They have two campgrounds that are RIGHT IN THE CITY.

Glen Rouge, in a very lovely setting along the river near the Toronto Zoo, has about 125 sites, but only water and electric.

Indian Line, in the northern part of the city, is bigger and has full service sites. I haven't seen it.

You can reach the heart of the city from each one in about 35 minutes driving.

Puplic Transportation serves each site as well and could be the easiest way to get DOWNTOWN in the Big City.
