Trillium Woods Campground

Trillium Woods Campground is located just north of busy Sauble Beach and just west of Wiarton, Ontario making it a great location for taking in campground activities as well as all that the Bruce Peninsula has to offer.

We love seeing our guests interact with each other thus the reason we have many events planned for the course of the summer.  Stay tuned to learn more.

dog-020
Wow - camp was full this weekend and all had a great time celebrating for our nation. Pretty much every site was sporting some flag or decorations for the weekend. Camp was looking pretty spiffy. Our campfire celebration had great attendance, all our 40+ chairs where used from the rec hall. Prizes were awared to people who correctly answered Canadian trivia questions. There where many laughs and a few things learned from the quiz. Some new acqantances were formed and old ones renewed. A good time was had by all! Special thank you to Hank V for being our fire "master" and Deb & Dave H for use of his decorative fire ring.

A small but fun loving group participated in the Field day held by the rec. hall at Trillium Woods Campground on July 16, 2016.  First a big thanks to volunteers Rick, Deb, Debbie & Dave without whom I could not have done with out. Our first race, the three legged race was ran in a couple of heats, to accomidate some late comers, but in the end two girls (O & A) won the race with some stiff competion. Dee & Debbie were a close second, with S & M third. Then we moved onto the wheel barrow race where again O & A crossed first, with Dave & Debbie coming in second. There where alot of laughs with that one. The egg race - a few heat where run with this one, due to misplaced eggs and spoons flying, but in the end M won, with her mom S coming in a close second. Then paricipants had a small break while we set up for the obstacle course for the water relay race. The obstacle course consisted of weave poles, run around a chair, then a small jump over a stick, then cardboard box. We had a few more kids...

  2015 TWC Halloween In The Park by Judy C.          Being our first season at TWC as “Seasonals” we weren’t sure exactly what to expect during the annual “Halloween in The Park” at Trillium Woods. Who does Halloween in September? However, we were in happy anticipation as we went shopping for Halloween treats and decorations in early August, so we would be right and ready for the event on Saturday September 5 th , Labour Day weekend. Can you imagine the strange looks we received in early August as we inquired as to where the stores’ Halloween supplies might be. Fortunately, we were aware that dollar type stores, often have their goods for any upcoming holiday event out on the shelves sometimes two months or more ahead of the event. At the dollar store we were greeted with a whole isle (soon to be two ) of Halloween paraphernalia, from gaudy body parts to fuzzy hanging spider webs (complete with fuzzy spider/s), as well as gummy eye balls and a host of other, hopefully tasty, Trick or Treat selections. Real pumpkins were nowhere to be had, but we did find some outdoor strings of pumpkin lights. The early...

This past weekend was the 2 nd Pig Roast@ TWC and it was as good as the first. We had a few less in numbers, but that just meant fuller tummies and was made up for in good memories. More people came out to watch the pig be “basted & roasted” and then later enjoy the full flavor of a potluck meal. There was a great variety of dishes and no one went away hungry. After there was a prize draw that saw many of the kids with happy faces as they picked up their prize. All prizes were donated by the Harris family of London Home Hardware, Vanvugt and McIntyre family. A huge thank you to the Vanvugt and McIntyre families & friends for all their efforts in organizing, decorating and co-ordinating this event. Also a shout out to the man wearing the coconut bra, – still laughing at that sight.

Saturday July 4th marked the first Family Field Day held at TWC. The usual serene atmosphere of the campground was somewhat interrupted with cheers of encouragement to the athletes and yells of congratulations for the winners! The event was organized by Judy (Site 20) with the assistance of a number of capable and keen volunteers. The event was met with sunny weather, blue sky, and warm temperatures (almost too warm!), just what the Doctor ordered. It was gratifying to see the smiling faces on all the participants, adults and kids alike, as everyone was having a good time. In many cases the younger participants had never participated in an “old time” Field Day, with sack races and the like, so parents and older participants were seen trying to demonstrate the finer points of wheel barrow racing etc. to their younger team members. The last event, the “Water Relay Race” was particularly fun to watch, as it was “organized chaos” at best. Six teams of four persons each (mixed adults and kids), participated in the Relay. The goal was to be the team with the most water left in the cup at the end of the four “legs” of the Relay....

We had our first Pig Roast at Trillium Woods Campground this last Sat. It was a great success. Many thanks to the Hosts - Keith & Lori, Hank & Darlene. They put alot of work into the event and everyone had a great time. There was lots of food and laughing as the campers enjoyed their roasted supper. During the day alot of people and kids stopped by to take a look. The four legged kids gave the best response, some not so sure what was going on so tried to scare it away with barking! Anyways after we were all full, the host had a draw for some prizes and there were some lucky families that night! And some full tummies! Here are some pictures of the event: 6am: 6pm: the cooks  the food  the pig served the campers

A great time, by young and old, was had by all at the camp Sat. night. There were a variety costumes wandering around the camp, collecting treats. A few of the campers dressed up as well and did a great job of decorating their site. The Wolf was the talk about the camp, as was the shaking skeleton head and errie sounds coming from the trailer. After there were games held in the hall, were campers enjoyed winning some prizes and laughing together. The following are some pictures taken around the camp on that scary evening.
