Check in time after 2:00 pm and departure not later than 12:00 noon.
During the prime time camping season, any un-reserved waterfront sites (sites 1 through 18) will be made available to reserve for shorter camping stays [i.e. less than one (1) week]. A minimum two (2) night reservation will apply. Staff will consult the Campground Waiting List first to assign un-reserved sites. Reservations for shorter camping stays (less than 1 week) will be considered and allocated on Saturday at 12:00 pm (following regular Friday check in) for the subsequent week. These sites can NOT be reserved past the following Friday. Preference will be given to longer camping stays. Short Stay pricing for waterfront campsites is as follows:

The municipality reserves the right to reassign camp sites with a minimum of three (3) weeks’ notice in advance of reservation period at their discretion for the betterment and operational requirements of Memorial Park.
KIN CAMP EVENT: During the Civic Holiday weekend in August, Sites 40 - 143 [upper campground area] will not be available for public use.
LONG WEEKENDS: All sites require a 3 night minimum reservation. Long weekends will be booked at regular prime rates.
HOW DO I MAKE A RESERVATION: Reservations will be accepted by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), voice mail (519-538-2530) or general mail (21 Trowbridge Street West, Meaford, ON N4L 1A1) clearly marked Memorial Park Reservation Request. Due to the high volume of pre-season reservation requests (February, March and April), we ask that you allow staff up to two (2) weeks to confirm reservations.
RESERVATION PAYMENT SCHEDULE: Pre-season reservation requests will be confirmed by staff. Payment in full by credit card will be expected upon confirmation of reservation. Non-payment will result in reservation cancellation. During the camping season, payment in full is expected at time of reservation.
GROUP RESERVATIONS: Group reservation requests for individual sites made by one individual representing the group will be held for fourteen (14) consecutive days. It is the responsibility of each group member to contact the campground office within this period to confirm individual site reservation and provide payment in full for respective site.
For Group Camping: There are only two (2) designated areas within the campground where trailers may be parked in a circle (circling of the wagons).
ABSOLUTELY no "circling of the wagons" is permitted in any other locations within the campground. Trailers are expected to be parked on designated lanes / parking strips on all sites (where said lanes/parking strips are clearly marked).
GARBAGE and RECYCLING: Garbage/recycling of any kind left on site will result in a $25.00 clean up fee to camper. It is camper’s responsibility to deposit garbage and recycling into the appropriate bins provided. Wildlife are often attracted to a campsite that is not well kept and tidy, in search of scraps. We are happy to supply garbage bags if need be.
FIREWOOD: Firewood for all campfires (and other) can be purchased from campground staff. No external firewood will be permitted onto the campground. Please respect the park and the surrounding forest areas.
Memorial Park cancellation policy is as follows:
14 days or greater = 100% refund minus $25.00 administration fee.
Less than 14 days = no refund. Equivalent value will be offered within 1 year of cancellation date. Failure to notify of a late arrival will be treated as a "No Show", and after 24hrs will result in loss of reservation.
All cancellations must be administered via email with a confirmation response from staff. During the season from May 7th forward, cancellations can also be made in person or verbally over the phone at park office between 9am and 5pm daily. NOTE…Voice mail cancellations will not be accepted.
Failure to notify of late arrival that exceeds 24hrs will result in loss of reservation with no equivalent value offered.
