Taking down the Fall, Thanksgiving and Halloween decorations from our fence, gave me time to reflect on how fortunate we are to live in Canada. Our freedoms are not taken for granted. Replacing the decorations with the Poppy reminded me to thank all of those who have served for these freedoms. We will not forget. ... See MoreSee Less

We stayed in the 2 bdrm cabin this August and we had no complaints about the cabin or the Campground! The cabin looks, smells and feels new and has been kept up impeccably. The air conditioning was a lovely bonus on a hot August week. Not all of their rental cabins have a/c so we were lucky ours did. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and serve food. Everything is thoughtfully laid out and decorated in a small space. The lake is a few steps away from the cabin – the view from the cabin in the morning is great.
The 3 bdrm and 1 bdrm cabins have the best views of the lake as they’re directly in front of it. The beach is kept very clean and is pet-free (which I appreciate); the lake is beautiful and very clean and they have some fun water slides, a trampoline, and a jungle gym for the more adventurous. There’s a little playscape for kids – our 6 yr old loved it. Another favourite part was their Kawartha Dairy ice cream bar! We went on most days for a scoop of ice cream or a slushie. What a treat! They also have laundry facilities right by the rental cabins. The closest major town is Bancroft, which is a 25 min drive. They have a No Frills for your groceries. We hope to be back soon! Thanks for a lovely stay Red Eagle!

Great Place To Own A Trailer In
My husband, myself and our 9 year old son decided to buy a trailer here this past May. We have a an amazing first summer here. The people are great. The owners Karen and Chris are awesome! There is always something to do here, every weekend is jam packed with things for the campers young and old. The park is pet friendly which is great. It’s kept quiet at night, so you don’t have to worry about be kept up all night.
The beach is great for kids with many water toys, lots of different water toys that can be rented for a great price and the store always has many kinds of ice cream. The lake is full of fish, lots of pike, bass, Lake trout and lots of other kinds. Great fishing!! This is a wonderful family campground to visit or own in.
We are very happy to be here!

Great Family Atmosphere
This was our first visit to the Red Eagle Campground. Only going by the pictures on their website we were a little nervous of what we would actually find when we got there. We were thrilled! We rented their 3bdrm cottage, which had 2 queen beds 1 double and a set of bunk beds – plenty of room for 8 people. The cottage was very well stocked with small appliances, cookware and dishes, a full stove/oven, a gas bbq and a perfect view of their private sandy beach. The water on Lake Wollaston is clear and Red Eagle keeps their swimming area clean.
There are plenty of inflatable water toys for kids and adults.to use and they have rentals of paddle boat, kayak, paddle board and waterbike …all very reasonable at only $5 /hr. We appreciated the laundry center they had, which was bright and clean and only cost $2/load. Their recreation center has activities planned throughout the summer for the families. If you like derbys and fairs, Coe Hill is a short drive up the street and they held their annual fair during the time we were there at the end if August. Only 30 minutes away is Bancroft, a beautiful little town surrounded by lakes, greenery and rocks. The family atmosphere, the cleanliness of the park, definitely their ice cream, and the cottage itself made this one of the best summer vacation spots for our family so far!

Great place for Families
My husband and I as well as our 2 children (first time aged 3 & 8) have been here 2 times now. Each time in early-mid July. After our first time here we were hooked. This is a campground where most of the guests own a trailer or RV on a lot. There are no tent lots but each lot is allowed to have a tent pitched if they desire. If you don’t own a trailer/RV there is a 1 BDRM cottage, a 3 BDRM cottage and a 2 BDRM RV available to rent.The first stay we rented the 2 Bedroom RV for 7 days. The next year we stayed for 3 extra days so 10 days.
We tried to extend while we were there but they had already booked another family. The RV is amazing. Tons of Storage/closet space and quite spacious. Beautifully furnished with modern kitchen and furniture. The RV is looking right onto the lake and has a great sized deck for BBQ and outside meals. The kids have a blast meeting new children and playing at the park. They absolutely love the beach, with it’s water trampoline, slide and ice berg climber. They are almost always in the water!! The atmosphere is great with friendly neighbors (most of whom own their trailers as only the RV and 2 cottages are for rent). A good sense of community. Red Eagle has themes every week and activities such as volleyball, horseshoes, Bingo nights, dance party, comical hypnotist and more. The staff are friendly and I especially like Red Eagles owner’s daughters who work and chip in for their family business with a good attitude and they seem to enjoy it. Snack shop is great for necessities and snacks such as kawartha dairy ice cream. yum! There are paths and trails for bike riding and you cant beat the fresh air and night stars and campfires. Great family atmosphere day and night as there is a keep it down policy at night (not a place where teens can camp and party) The campground is located in the very small town of Coe Hill. Not much there but Bancroft is just a 25-30 min. drive. It is not a resort so no housekeeping (although if I could make a suggestion that would be nice) and no supervised programs for children or anything like that. It would be nice if they had these things as with young children it can be hard to relax as you must always be ensuring their safety (in the water ect.) but again this is not a resort, only a campground. I also would enjoy more activities or at least more often then there is currently. I think this would help everyone to get to know each other and have Red Eagle be a little more social for those who are very sociable.The only other downfall in my opinion is that the lake is a bit over-fished and after the beach/swim area there is lots of seaweed. Definitely not a muskoka waterfront but it is fine for cooling off and taking a swim. Overall this place is one of a kind for a family campground. We feel “red eagle home sick” immediately after leaving and look forwards to coming back the next summer as soon as we leave. For a northern Ontario, relaxing and fun vacation this place is great!
