Friday in Lion’s Head, Ontario
This year’s trip with me and the kids was spent up in Lion’s Head, Ontario. Our goal was to explore, hike and swim and we did just that.
Our three-hour drive north pulling our Coleman Fleetwood Taos was uneventful and easy to push in place. Yes push in place, I cannot back that trailer up to save my life. Luckily the Taos was the smallest of the models and I can easily move it by hand myself.
We settled into our campground overlooking Lion’s Head Harbor (Isthmus Bay) right next to the Bruce Trail; it meant a lot of foot traffic but the view was great and the people at the Park were super friendly.
I’ve been told not to tell anyone on how great of a place Lion’s Head is, repeatedly; So I won’t.
Even getting booked at the trailer park itself seems to be secretive as it has no official name beyond the Lion’s Head Marina. And that is exactly who you need to call for a site. 519 793 4060 for $45/night serviced. Even after calling that number you will be directed to a few different extensions but the hide and seek is worth it, these sites are a perfect temporary home for exploring the Bruce Pinusula.
Visitors Be Warned as the park is 95% super friendly permanent visitors. Sometimes are never available even though they are unused, and sometimes sites are reported as booked but never used. We had good friends wanting to stay an extra two days, yet their site was never filled and they were told it was.
Being late by the time we got in and setup we did not want to mess around with dinner, so we went into town (a mere 5-minute walk) to Cindy Lou’s Ice Cream and More for some Local Fish and ice cream. I am pretty picky when it comes to ice cream so $18 for 4 people single scoop was a bit over my head. But the fish was fantastic and worth a second visit.
However, with the day spent (having worked all day before driving the three hours), there wasn’t much left for us to do except enjoy the night sky and go to bed.
