Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Oastler Lake Provincial Park (Parry Sound)

Point taken

Oastler Lake Provincial Park offers a 100-metre-long beach and it’s really close from the highway (a good occasion to dip into the water before heading back home at the end of a visit to Parry Sound). But what really appealed to me was the potential camping experience (especially for beginners). The campgrounds at Oastler Park are not very private. In addition, the main railway line runs nearby and you will hear the trains loud and clear. It’s hard to truly forget about civilization. But all this won’t mean a thing to your young adventurers when they see the lake through the trees of Point Campground, the radio-free strip of land with great Canadiana view to the bay.

    My wife and I camped here a few years back and we didn't really consider coming back. Our interest then was mainly to go hiking, and hiking trails are what Ostler lake is lacking. Now that we have kids, Ostler Lake became one of our most frequently visited park. Our kids love the water, the beach, and we like the facilities and the campsite we usually stay at.
