Pretty park with lovely sights
Peter Indy
June 22, 2012
The site we got at Danforth Bay Camping Resort has a good view of Danforth Bay Lake and is surrounded by pine trees. It was truly lovely and nice to wake up to in the morning. Our site was also satisfactory - large for our rig, has enough room to let us move around, has full hookups that are all operational, level, and receives good wi-fi signal. The facilities are all clean and well-maintained, and the staff are hardworking and friendly. My only minor complaint about this place is there are no benches or enough hooks in the bathroom for placing your clothes while you shower. The place also doesn't have cable TV.

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.
