If you value quiet and the sound of nature, this isn't the park for you. Hwy 400 is very loud and can be heard all over the park. It could be easily heard over the dozens of yelling kids in sites close by plus the obnoxious music being played by a group of city guys a few sites down. I wore ear plugs and covered my head with a pillow, could still hear it. There is no peace or quiet at any time of day.

The sites are very close together with little privacy.

The water at the beach is murky and weedy.

I give it a 2 star rating because the staff were wonderful.

My campsite was located on a beaver pond and I remembered that some 12 years ago there had been a sizable beaver lodge not far from the shore. This year the lodge was gone, but at that very spot a beautiful blue heron stood, trying to catch fish or frogs. Although it kept changing its hunting spots, I saw it almost every day. One evening, when it was almost dark, I saw the blue heron majestically fly from the lake and land on a tree branch on the other side of the pond, where he probably spent the night. A semi-submerged stump made a great place for turtles to climb on and rest, basking in the sun. And there were small birds, incessantly flying over the water in search for food. Since the campsite was quite open, the sun was all over my tent at 8:00 am and I had to wake up and get out of the tent—or suffocate! At least I did not need an alarm clock.

The park was quite busy and sometimes on the noisy side, but it did not bother me. From time to time I saw the park’s truck drive by.

The new comfort station was certainly a welcome addition; it offered a number of showers. There were two electric vehicle charging stations nearby. The noise from Highway 400 was pronounced, but since it was continuous, after a while I just stopped noticing it.

The weather was perfect and it did not rain, yet I set up a very primitive and small tarp in case of rain. I did not see any raccoons, foxes or other bigger animals. The beach was OK and I even went for a swim a few times. And probably the most important thing: there were no mosquitoes whatsoever, I did not have to use mosquito spray. I had NEVER experienced such a mosquito-free summer in my over 30+ years of camping!

I loved the size of this park. Because it was small we could easily walk the trails and to the shop and beaches when Compared to other provincial parks where they are larger and a vehicle is necessary to move around.

We just come for a couple of hours maybe once a month to walk the trail since it's not far from home. It's a beautiful trail loop. Don't forget insect repellent & of course sunscreen. You also hear the roar of vehicles on Hwy 400 so overnight camping may be noisy.

I visited Six Mile Lake this past weekend and had a great time.

The camp sites were clean, well marked and ours was spacious. We have a trailer and it’s the first park where the one way road system doesn’t require you to reverse in on your blind side.

The dog beach was perfect. Often, our four legged friends don’t get to enjoy camping because they need to stay on leash. Six Mile Lake had a GREAT beach for dogs and people to use (not just the boat launch!) they also had two dog free beaches.

The hiking trails were beautiful! They were not very long but you won’t regret going. Make sure you wear SHOES, the trail has lots of rock and it requires a solid grip. I wouldn’t hike it in the rain.

You can rent canoes, kayaks and paddle boards. Rentals are by the hour, half day or full day.

You can bring your boat, fish, hike, swim etc. There is something for everyone.

Needed a place to stay prior to our Wreck Island Tour in Parry Sound.
Originally booked at Georgain Bay Islands Nat. Park, but had to change plans.
Was little else available.

We had hoped to do a little canoeing once we arrived. We were suprised to find out that 1] The rental office closed at 5:00 pm. and 2] they stopped renting canoes at 3:00pm. --- We did not arrive until shortly after 3 pm.

We also like to hike. They have 3 hikintg trails at the park. However the total length is only about 2.5 km. The one trail "Marsh Trail" really lived up to its name.

The beach area has a clay bottom, so the water ends up being cloudy. There were also a lot of weeds in the beach area too.

While there was little noise from fellow campers -- there is also little to divide the sites from each other -- the same could not be said for Highyway 400. It was not as restfull a sleep that night as compared to other Provincal Parks.

It is a beautiful park relatively close to Toronto, offering plenty of activities, and for this reason it has always been quite busy—yet during COVID-19, it was impossible to find vacant campsites on weekends. I am glad that a week before my visit I had managed to book the only available campsite in the park and thus I camped for several days on site #97 (Oak Campground) over the Thanksgiving long weekend. Yes, the park was 100% full!

The fall colours were stunning and I took advantage of the parks’ trails. I leisurely walked the Living Edge Trail and the David Milne Trail, named after David Milne (1882-1953), a Canadian painter, who used to live and paint on Six Mile Lake. Some of his paintings were clearly inspired by the prominent rocks of the Canadian Shield. The hikes were quite easy and let me enjoy the spectacular fall colours.

One part of the park (Maple Campground) was already closed for camping, but it was possible to walk there and I checked out many campsites. Some were very good and offered very good privacy and nice views.

Most of the animals I saw were on my site. A hungry chipmunk kept visiting me in regular intervals; it did not even hesitate to literally walk all over me in search of food. A relatively tame Blue Jay was always watching me from the nearby tree and whenever I was not paying attention, it flew over, landed on the table, grabbed whatever food there was and flew away. Of course, there was also the "de rigueur" nightly visit by several raccoons, so accustomed to tourists that they were sniffing at my legs and shoes while totally ignoring my presence. From time to time a very timid squirrel appeared at the campsite; whenever the chipmunk saw it, it immediately chased it away, ostensibly not wanting to have any competition or company to share its grub with! I also saw a majestic Blue Heron on the trail.

I wanted to take photographs of wild mushrooms, which should normally be plentiful in October. Unfortunately, I did not see any in and around the park—even though my friends reported plenty in Killarney and Algonquin parks. Well, one of nature’s mysteries!

The park had two charging stations for electric vehicles—incredibly, my friend, who visited me, happened to have a Tesla vehicle, so she took advantage of this opportunity and charged her car overnight.

Every few hours or so I saw a park’s truck slowly drive around, but I do not think there were any major issues in the park. The washrooms were clean and most likely so were the showers… because they were closed. I was surprised to see an additional comfort station, apparently constructed not long ago. The only interaction with the park staff I had was at the entrance to the park—the check-in procedures were very quick. I also visited the park’s store and bought firewood (dry!).

Probably the main disadvantage of this park is its proximity to the highway (400). No matter where your campsite is located, you will hear the noise from the highway. However, since it was almost continuous, after a while I stopped noticing it. Also, when I was hiking on one of the trails, suddenly I saw the busy highway across a beautiful lake—it definitely spoiled the view—and my experience! Obviously, these are things that cannot be changed and we have to accept them… or go to a different park.

The closest town is Port Severn. There are restaurants, a post office, Catholic church, small LCBO store, marinas, gas station, Tim Horton’s and a 100 + year old lock (#45), the last lock of the Trent-Severn Waterway, with a swing bridge (however, both the fixed & swing portions of the bridges are being replaced with those of a similar look, to preserve the historic landscape of the area). Some 15 minutes from the park is the Big Chute Marine Railway that carries boats across land in a cradle — something definitely worth seeing!

I have been camping in this park for about 30 year, since the early 1990s, and I am looking forward to visiting it many more times. Indeed, I have already reserved a campsite in Six Mile Lake Park in September and October, 2021!

There are so many campgrounds here and a couple of beaches. Many people with children and dogs. There is a trail that winds through that you can walk and some areas of the trail are u and down with branches of the trees sticking up through the soil. There are notices about ticks.
