With something
for everyone

Guests can choose between 6 deluxe housekeeping cottages, a bunkie for those who like to "Glamp" or a camping vacation. In the spring, we cater to the fishermen who fish for trophy lake trout as soon as the ice leaves the lake. Summer brings families to our resort to enjoy a memorable vacation. Whether in one of our deluxe cottages or camping amongst the trees, memories are made here! In the fall, the pace slows down; we invite you to join us for the beautiful fall colours.

We are a family/staff operated resort who put our hearts and souls in to this beautiful retreat.  We all strongly believe in personal customer service.  It is always best to CALL us to confirm a camping site or cottage so that we can do our absolute best to accommodate your requests.  Unfortunately, a computer is NOT very good at conveying your thoughts and feelings however a quick call can make the process easy.  Feel free to email us however since we are family run, please be patient for a response.

Camping sites available except August long weekend.

Cottages available starting August 17th & Sugar Shack Bunkie still offers various availability. 


Seasonal sites available.



Our phone lines are open 7 days a week, all year.  Feel free to call us between 10am - 9pm.  Friendly voices are always appreciated!

July & August our store is open from 10am-12pm, 1-5pm & 6-9pm.  Please check-in from 1-8:30pm while our store is open for both camping and cottages.

May, June & September our store is open from 10am - 12pm & 3-5pm.  On Friday & Saturday evenings only, we are also open from 7-9pm.  If you are checking in during the day but we are closed due to short off-season hours, (only these times of the year), please complete the camping registration form supplied outside the store door in the blue box and deposit in the door mail slot.  If you are checking in for a cottage, please contact us IN ADVANCE if you are not able to check-in during our store hours.

Please be patient when we are closed during the day as we do need to eat too!  🙂  We prefer you check-in before we are closed for the evening.  Please contact us if you need to make additional check-in time arrangements.


Beauty surrounds you

Manitoulin is a unique place where ancient native legends combine with historic sites and beautiful scenery to provide an unforgettable vacation experience. The pace of life is slower and more simple here allowing for a peaceful relaxing holiday atmosphere. After a few days, the magic of Manitoulin takes over and you find yourself relaxing, slowing down, and taking time to enjoy the beauty which surrounds you. Crystal clear lakes, abundant wildlife, birds, and winding scenic roads lead to new discoveries at every turn.

What guests are saying:

We had to write you to tell you what a WONDERFUL time we had at the Old Mill Cottage.

Such a beautiful spot right on the lake.  The cottage was very clean, very comfortable, spacious, quaint and quiet.  The stone work remarkable….. loved the deep set windows.

It was so nice to have a fireplace when the evenings were a bit damp or cool, and with wood and kindling supplied daily…. a nice treat.

The resort is lovely with treed areas, gardens, waterfall, a nice big park for the kids, numerous bathrooms with showers—all new and explicitly clean and welcoming.

The General Store is well stocked and with reasonably priced goods… not expected.

You and your whole family are very nice,  down to earth and welcoming.  You have done a great job at your resort by keeping it neat, tidy and beautiful.

Thank you so much for the great relaxing time we had.

We hope to return one day.

BRIAN & MARNY Old Mill & Resort

We were onsite from Monday July 31 until Thursday August 3rd, 2023. What a beautiful spot! We booked not having seen the resort, and asked for a site closest to the water. Once we arrived, we were given a map of the available sites to choose from. We chose one in the back of the resort, nearest the washrooms and were instantly in love. Beautiful ice cubes, firewood delivery with the addition of kindling and paper. OUTSTANDING! Clean! Maintained! Beautiful! 5 stars!


We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay. We were so pleased as to how clean and quiet your facilities were . Your staff was so helpful when we arrived. This was our first trip to Manitoulin but it will not be our last. Our next stay will defiantly be longer to enjoy the island more . We will be highly recommending your park to anyone traveling through there. Again Thank you so much!


I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful week we had at your campground.   It’s central enough to do daytrips. Your campground is incredibly clean and manicured. Your waterfront is beautiful sandy.  Great Lake for kayaking.  Your family and staff are very friendly as well as the seasonal people. Thank you for making our week a good one.  Highly recommend!  Tracey from Hawkestone.


We are off to catch ferry to Tobermory and spend a few days there…think it’s going to be impossible for the next cottage we are staying at to match yours!

Thank you to everyone for making our stay like a home away from home!
