Day Use Vehicle Permits: because of the popularity of this park it is one that may need permits to be purchased in advance in order to guarantee park access. This was started in 2021 and will continue in 2022.
If you’re smart grab the permit before any visit even mid-week. We found this out the hard way at our local Provincial Park.
You can buy the vehicle permit up to 5 days in advance which guarantees you access to the park on that day. If you have an annual or season pass you should still go online and book your permit but there’s no extra charge.

Camping & Accommodation
All of Craigleith’s campsites are accessible by car. There are four comfort stations located throughout the park so all campsites are within a short distance of one. Two of our comfort stations offer shower facilities and one offers laundry facilities.
Area A contains non-electrical sites that are ideal for tents. This area also has a designated dog beach at the west end of the park and a comfort station with flush toilets, showers, laundry facilities, and a water tap.
Area B contains both electrical and non-electrical sites that are ideal for both tents and trailers. This area is close to the Area A comfort station and also has another mini-comfort station one that offers flush toilets and showers.
Area C is made up of both electrical and non-electrical sites that are all radio-free. The non-electrical sites are ideal for tents or small trailers. The electrical sites are ideal for trailers and RVs. This area also has a comfort station, trailer filling and dumping station, playground, volleyball court, horseshoe pits, and playing field.
Area D is primarily made up of electrical sites with only two non-electrical sites. Most of the electrical sites have water hook-up which makes this area ideal for trailers and RVs. This area is radio-free and has one comfort station and the day-use area which is located at the east end.
Areas C and D, which offer both electrical and non-electrical sites provide radio-free camping.
Hiking, Biking & Paddling
Bike on the park roads or the Georgian Trail located just outside of the park. A nice flat, stone chip trail runs from Meaford to Collingwood.
For downhill and cross-country skiing as well as road riders you can visit the park store for the most up to date information on trails.
