Peterborough is one of the few municipalities to operate their own campground and we spent last weekend enjoying this beautiful location.

Our view looking across the campground. This was Monday morning after most folks had left.

There are rigs for all tastes and budgets, large million dollar motorhomes and tiny teardrop trailers like this one. Although small, two people can sleep comfortably in the trailer and there is a kitchen under the door on the back roof. As you can see they have their bicycles with them along with two kayaks and a dining tent. The folks in this trailer looked to be in their late 60's early 70's so camping is for all ages.

This park is perfect for canoeing and kayaking and it's right in the heart of Peterborough. Cost for full hookups was $50.00/night and the campground was almost full when we arrived. 

If you know of other municipal campgrounds in Ontario let us know. We enjoy visiting small towns and their farmers' markets this time of year.
