Campground Description

The Breakwater Park Campground is located on a natural point of land, right on the waters of the Bay. The campground has 17 sites, twelve are fully serviced. Each site offers beautiful views of the water. A beach, boat launch, and kayak launch area are on site. Boat slip rentals are available for your convenience. Our campground rates are on a daily, weekly or seasonal basis. The beauty and quaintness will keep you wanting to come back year after year!

Local Attractions

Manitoulin Island has much to offer by way of points of interest such as hiking, cycling, fishing, boating, sight seeing and swimming. Among the local attractions of Meldrum Bay and the surrounding area are the hiking trails and beaches. The trails vary in intensity from easy to moderate. A short drive away will bring you to two of the six hiking trails located on the Western part of the Island. There are upwards of twenty beaches located across the island for you to visit.   Immerse yourself into the culture and visit one of our many museums and art studios. Visit our local blacksmith, just a 2 minute drive and enjoy a live demonstration. Feedback noted from previous campers; “it is quaint”, “peaceful" it has “breathtaking views” and the “staff are helpful and friendly.” Looking forward to having you join us!

Right where 540 Ends!

Oct 6, 2022by Jack Yard
We were 2 couples in 25 ft Travel Trailers and we stayed from August 4th to Aug 9th this past summer. We stayed in Sites # 1 & 2. Both these sites were serviced by Hydro and water but could definitely benefit from some ground levelling. This campground is definitely a work in progress. While small and unique in it's location, the wash house facilities leave something to be desired. I certainly hope the competition of this facility is next on the "To Do" list. There are showers (very clean) available at the Harbour Masters Building. The addition of a beach area is very nice and it was very quiet while we were there. Unfortunately there is almost nothing to do in Meldrum Bay itself as the Net Shed Museum is boarded up, the Meldrum Bay Inn and it's great dining experience is only available to people who book at least 2 nights stay and then only on weekends. Dove's Place is gone and the 540 Ends General Store was closed almost the whole time we were there due to a Covid-19 outbreak amongst the staff. However the Happy Camper Gorge was very interesting and the "seven2one" studio were great places to visit. Until the Mississagi Lighthouse Museum and Campground reopen (questionable), this campground is the only one on the west end of Manitoulin. Bottom line, there's still some work to be done here but we will definitely come again to visit this quaint village and it's campground.

Peaceful, tranquility and friendly

Best place to spend the last 3 days of our holidays. Fantastic views, peaceful area and clean facilities. John was awesome, always checking with everyone that things were okay, making sure everything was clean and invited us to a campfire with live music. It was the best way to finish our holidays. Thanks John

Gorgeous.

Best campground I’ve been to. Meldrum bay is beautiful, Misery Bay PP is amazing, the washroom is CLEAN, the Marina building with the showers is sparkling. The Harbormaster is very congenial and checks in with you after arrival to be sure you are set up OK.

Thanks for visiting. It was nice to meet you and we hope we see you again. John

Secluded and beautiful!

Everything went smooth: from reservation, to communicating with staff, to requests being met. The site is clean and although there is no privacy between sites everybody behaved and respected each other. The facilities were clean and welcoming. Hopefully a second stall could be added to the men's washroom. The views over the bay were fantastic. John was a very attentive host. Very much looking forward to another visit

Quiet place with amazing views!

We were looking for a quiet, out of the way place to spend a weekend on Manitoulin Island. We're self contained in our 8 meter/25 foot RV and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We made reservations 2 weeks before our arrival. There were available sites during our stay. This campground is a gem. All sites have a view of the bay. Most have full sun. The sites are close together yet generously sized and some have added privacy from hedges between the sites. Sites are grassy/gravel and all need some leveling. Campers are welcome to use the marina facilities to shower and use wifi. The shower was clean with ample hot water and water pressure. The wifi was good. There was good ATT cell coverage while roaming through Rogers and good Verizon coverage through Telus. John and Patty were helpful and attentive.

Although remote from most services like gas, food, LCBO, etc. , the scenery and atmosphere at the campground was great. Very friendly and helpful couple managing the campground. They would go out of their way to help make your stay enjoyable. We would go back again.

Hey Glenn It was great having you here. Glad you got to explore this part of the country. John

A quaint campground with panoramic and picturesque view

Jul 3, 2022by Hitesh Bansal
The view from the campground is strikingly beautiful. Specifically the sites 11-15 are directly by the bay water and are the best spots in my opinion. However, be ready for some pretty windy but amazing camping experience if you do choose these sites. Also, since we were first time campers and had zero clue about setting up a tent; John (Manager) helped us a lot and taught us how to set one up. I highly recommend this place for a peaceful and beautiful camping trip.

Best campsite

Best camping site with gorgeous views. Very friendly and helpful management. Highly recommend!

Awesome view. Very peaceful.

Jul 2, 2022by Neil Baldwin
There is zero privacy (sites 11-15, which face outward toward the North Channel, are basically a field) but, WOW, the view more than makes up for it. And if you do want to hang out in a bit less public spot, there is a short trail from each site (11-15) down to a cobblestone beach at water's edge. The campground is small, peaceful and quiet. Don't worry that the map shows it right beside Hwy 540... it's a dead end road, at the far end of Manitoulin, in a quaint little village that has the comforting feel of a maritime outpost. The campground/marina Manager, John, is a friendly, accommodating person whose presence immediately makes you feel welcome here. This place is a true hidden gem, reasonably priced, and I look forward to returning.
