Charleston Lake Provincial Park

We decided last minute to go camping this week-end. We'd talked about it and originally I wanted to go to Murphy's point provincial park especially since I found they had backcountry canoe camping sites. But after reading a few reviews, I changed my mind. Apparently lots of noisy motor boats around the park. At Charleston lake, inside the bay near the park there are no motorboats allowed, so at least near the beach it's quiet and not too wavy.

We arrived at 5pm without a reservation and got the last campsite that was available for the next 3 nights. We were put in the Meadowlands campsite. This one is the one that is nowhere near water, it is a large campground in a meadow. Sites are pretty big and most of them have lots of shade during the day.  We had site 152, right in front of a bathroom, so there was constant traffic.
