Overall Rating

Having come here for the first time some 35 years ago, I try to make my visits here as long and as often as possible. This year I was able to spend just a week here at the opening of the Mississagi Lighthouse Museum and Campground. This campground is so far off the beaten path that probably only 5 % of the visitors to Manitoulin Island ever hear of this place, let alone visit and camp here. However everyone who takes the time to drive to Meldrum Bay and onward to the Lighthouse is absolutely blown away by what they find at the very end of the road. If you are just a "Day Tripper" pack a lunch or picnic basket and wander out here. You will meet wonderful people with a passion for this place. If you plan to camp here for a night or even a week or two, you can be assured that you will do so in a place that will be forever etched into your memory. Almost every site is level and dry. Only a few have water and power (15 amp) but this is the kind of place that you come to to get away from all the encumbrances of urban life and the crowds in traditional campgrounds. Any size RV and I do mean absolutely every size, can be accommodated here but with limited services available you have to be relatively self contained. There are showers and flush toilets available but they are in the process of being updated. Day trippers are asked for $5 per vehicle but I think this should be higher. Donations and basic fees are the only revenue to keep this place going. Although not entirely off the grid, it is definitely on the very edge so don't expect cell coverage everywhere. Depending on your carrier, there are some "hot spots" where you can use your phone. I was using Bell Canada however I don't know about other carriers coverage around here. Lastly, I must say that having travelled from Canada's East Coast including Newfoundland, to the West Coast including Vancouver Island, this Mississagi Lighthouse Campground and Museum is absolutely unique and will leave a lasting impression on you and your fellow travellers.
