Ontario has many five star hotels, but if you want to enjoy a laid back getaway in the outdoors with good company, unparalleled views and lots of fresh air, then Hartley Bay Marina is for you. Situated within the French River Provincial Park, this little piece of paradise is a short drive from most major centres.

Camping is also an affordable way for the family to spend quality time together away from home. There's no need to book expensive hotel rooms, which is especially great for large groups. And a campfire meal or barbecue is a great alternative to buying expensive meals.
