tent & trailer park

Only 1.5 hours from the us border

Black Donald Tent & Trailer Park is just a short drive from the US – Canada border in the beautiful Province of Ontario. Each year we welcome campers from the US, including many who have been coming back year after year for generations!

Ever since I was a kid, my parents would take us to spend a week each summer at Black Donald Tent and Trailer Park. Now I camp here every summer with my own kids! Each year, Ann and John and Janice greet us and take care of us like family. We enjoy the fishing, campfires, and spending afternoons on the floating dock at the diving rock. The water and the sunsets are spectacular! It’s a beautiful park, but it is the owners who make this a special place!

We are situated on the southeast corner of Black Donald/Centennial Lake. A beautiful 27-mile long waterway that offers opportunities for kayaking, canoeing, waterskiing, and fishing. There are many different species of fish in our waters including Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Pickerel (Walleye), Whitefish, Perch, and Rock Bass.

Our park covers one-mile of shoreline and features campsites that are spacious and shaded with beautiful White Pines. We can accommodate all varieties of camping, whether you want a basic tent site, or have a larger RV. Some campsites have electricity (15 amp), and water, while others are basic campsites with no hookups.

We are the perfect destination for US visitors who want to enjoy all sorts of activities – or to just sit back, relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Canadian wilderness!
