Willow Lake Campground and RV Park, Helping families create lifetime memories……

......One campfire at a time!

Online reservations NOW OPEN for the 2020 season.

Office will open for phone reservations April 1st.

Winner of Camping In Ontario's 2019 Camper's Choice award for Best Customer Service!

COVID-19 related early opening details

In the midst of all that is going on, we are blessed to have the type of business that we do.

 A campground is a unique business, one in which people are responsible for their own accommodations, including the amount of interaction they have while they are in, or outside of it. When you go camping you have more control over your environment. You don’t have to go into crowded places. You can have as much or as little interaction with other people as you feel comfortable with.

 So, to support Canadian Snowbirds returning early we are opening our campground a month early, this Friday March 20th. Reservations for this period cannot be done online, please call the office to book.

 To do this though, we will have to do things very differently:

  • This is for RV’s only (all units entering our park must have functioning washroom/shower/dining facilities); no pop-ups, tenting or cabins, as public washrooms will be closed.
  • The GamesRoom and Laundry facilities will also be closed.
  •  Based on guidance from health officials and our industry, we have taken the step to close our store.  We are around, so for firewood sales, you may choose to call the office and pay for firewood over the phone using a credit card or etransfer and we can deliver the wood up to your site.  Etransfers can be sent to camping@willowlakecampground.ca

  • Although nearly impossible to close a playground, we suggest families refrain from using it as well.

 Common covid-19 practices need to be the responsibility of everyone, especially for snowbirds, if you have been outside of the country, you must self-isolate for 14 days. But everyone should ensure they are practicing recommended self-isolation of six feet, and avoid social gatherings.

And while you are here, there are ways to help support local businesses, and get great food at the same time! As well, our friends at JTK Farms / Meat Shoppe are taking orders and doing deliveries, so you can get amazing food, delivered right to the campground. Head over to their page for more details. As well Oxford Tourism and other partners have put together a website detailing local small businesses, food, restaurants that are open for services, check out www.supportingoxford.ca for more information.

 This is a unique time we are all living in right now, so lets all do our best to be kind, love each other, and do what we can to help others. See you at the campground.

Mark and Melanie

Welcome to Willow Lake Campground and RV Park!   We are your owners and hosts, Mark and Melanie, and we are glad to see you here! We have had a love and passion for camping for years, and whether it was just the two of us and our dog Chewbacca, or we had our wonderful son James along with us, on Monday's, it wasn't uncommon for us to be doing laundry that smelled like a campfire.  And over the years, we always talked about packing up the city and corporate life and doing something on our own, and it was common for us to have these discussions about our dream while we were by a campfire at various campgrounds across Ontario.  Then, like a lightbulb that went off, we said, 'well, why wouldn't we do this, own a campground!' And that began our search for the perfect campground, and guess what... in 2017 we found it!  So pull up a camp-chair next to the fire, and let us tell you all about Willow Lake Campground and RV Park in Woodstock Ontario!

Willow Lake has a wonderful history that goes back decades to the days of good ol' family picnics in a park.  Willow Lake Campground and RV Park has grown in both size and in the range of facilities that it offers. Being proud of our past, at the same time we are always looking towards the future, and we plan to respect the history and heritage of the park, while ensuring that each year the park and its activities gets a little bit better than the last.

Rustic Camping Cabins

Situated at the top of the campground there are four cabins, the Purple, Blue, Red and Orange cabins. Think of them as a wooden tent, except that unlike a normal tent, they keep you dry and warm, have real beds and electric lights. Each cabin sleeps three to four persons and are equipped with a set of bunk beds with a double on the bottom and single on top. The Purple Cabin can also fit a single cot as well, let us know if you need the cot.  Propane BBQ at each cabin, as well as a fire pit located just outside your cabin to cook over a wood fire. Clean washrooms are just a short walk away. And as linens aren't supplied, don't forget to bring your linens or sleeping bags from home! And unfortunately pets are not permitted in the cabins, sorry to our 4 legged friends!
