I was going to say Algonquin park but I looked it up and it appears there is no winter camping. My favorite campground is pinery provincial park although it's probably close to 3 hours for you on lake Huron. It is a gem and is open all year around with over 1000 campsites but limited to one area in the winter. We make sure we go at least once a year but usually in the spring when its quieter and theirs lots of bird migrating . Last spring we talked to a fellow who was camping in January and he stated he was the only one there that week but they do plow the road. Check out Ontarioparks website.

You won't regret going there and you might find yourself going back when the weather is nice care965. The cycling is the best with lots of paved windy roads and not to much of any hills making it easy to ride.

Another one open all year is MacGregor Point Provincial Park. On Lake Huron, near Port Elgin.

it looked like the KOA was open, what are they like i have only done the provincial thing,

the thing i like about the provincials is the fact that the site are more secluded what are the KOA's like that way?

Secluded is the only reason I like the provincial thing. That along with the much more property (hiking,cycling, walking etc).If anyone knows of a koa or any private campground for that matter with those amenities I'd like to know too. There might be some in ontario I just don't know where they are. Of course camping with children you might like the private ones that have more activities related to them. Its all about trade offs sometimes.

I just googled Mew lake(Agonquin provincial park) on tripadviser. Wow,looks like you can,t go wrong there. Open in the winter and has lots of good reviews. That is one huge park the size of some small countrys. I would love to go to Algonquin some day but it is a bit of ride.
