Camping out in Toronto

CampRVBus copy
I had no idea Toronto had an urban campground. Located in the Rouge Valley on the very eastern edge of the city, it’s called Glen Rouge and has 124 campsites (87 serviced for RVs, 27 unserviced, five for backpackers, and five oTENTiks). CampRVs copyAlthough there are busy roads nearby, at the far end of the campground all you hear are the leaves rustling and the birds singing. CampRougeRiver copyCampTrail copyIt’s on the Rouge River and there are great trails you can follow into the nearby woods. CampoTENTik2 copyI was most impressed with the oTENTiks. They have a canvas roof and are perched on a wooden platform — and they sleep six! Great for families, and inclement weather. CampSwingsWashroom copyThere’s a washroom and shower building up the hill from the campsites, and a few swings. The whole set up is rather basic, but that’s the beauty of it. Once you get to the far end of the campground and the quiet settles in, you’d never know you were on the eastern edge of a bustling metropolis.
