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

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

Online reservations NOW OPEN for the 2020 season.

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

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!
