Sandbanks Provincial Park – Getting there

Sandbanks Provincial Park – Getting there. (Location)

Sandbanks Provincial Park is located toward the eastern end of Lake Ontario. Traveling along Hwy 401 from Toronto in the west or Montreal in the east, the park is reached by traveling south from Belleville, Ontario through the town of Picton, Ontario. The park has 549 camping sites of which 140 offer electrical hook-up. The park encompasses two of the largest freshwater sandbars in the world and offers a look at some vegetation unique to that area of the country.

Our travels were on a nearly cloudless day with no complications, so I was able to stop to grab a few photos along the way.

By the time that we had reached the park, set up our tents, had a look around and prepared for the evening, it was too dark for normal daylight photography. The camp light did attract a few insects to our table, though, so out came the camera for a few shots with a Coleman lantern providing the illumination.
