The United Empire Loyalist Heritage Park was established as a family campground and day-use facility by the Province of Ontario in 1956 and has served as such since that time. Some of visiting families have been coming to this spot for generations. Campsites are available for overnight, weekly, or seasonal use. The beach and day-use area is ideally suited for family picnics and outings, as well as for larger groups, such as family reunions or church picnics.
Campground is known for its spacious sites, spreading shade trees, sandy beaches and acres of open grassy fields perfect for walking the dog. There are two children’s play areas, two restroom facilities, and a camp store where you can stock up on snacks, borrow a book from the lending library, or cool down with some ice cream. With Saturday bingo, our weekend ice cream trolley, horseshoe pits and so much more, no wonder guests consider the UEL Heritage Centre and Park one of the area's best kept secrets!
For those interested in history, we have a museum dedicated to the Loyalists and early Ontario history, as well as a large library research room. From time to time we host encampments by re-enactment groups to bring history to life on our grounds.
