Welcome to
Busy Beaver Campground!

Busy Beaver Campground & RV Trailer Park is located on the historical St. Joseph Island, 60km east of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. St. Joseph Island is the 2nd largest inland island in North America, and the second largest producer of maple syrup next to Quebec! The location is picture-perfect. Nature abounds throughout the island, sighting many species. We are open from the May long weekend to October 1st, and serve travelers near Sault Ste. Marie and surrounding area.

We are a small 37-site seasonal campground offering excellent camping experiences for all age groups. A family-friendly atmosphere will ensure that your stay is both relaxing and enjoyable. You can stay a night, a week, or all season! The campground is located on a gorgeous spring-fed and unpolluted inland lake, perfect for swimming and fishing (pike, perch and the elusive splake). Our sandy beach is very kid friendly. The lake supports all watercraft, from small sailboats, kayaks, Seadoo's, and smaller power boats. Pets are welcome, but must be leashed at all times. ATV's are invited to explore the surrounding trails. We hope you can visit and maybe even stay awhile. If you're looking for a great place to camp near Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, we'd love to have you!

Our Camp Sites

Most of our RV sites have great lake views for you to enjoy. Water and power are provided at all sites. Most have septic, if not, we have a dumping station for your use. Seasonals are available and transients are welcome (please call for availability)! We also have a private tenting area if you like to rough it (not really rough, but they are private).

If friends or family would like to visit and stay awhile, and room in your trailer is maxed out, we have a couple of furnished rooms for rent at the main house. Call or ask for rates and to setup a viewing.

For those not quite as outdoorsy, we've been told by many of our guests that we've got the nicest washrooms and showers they've ever used at a campground. They're very modern and we take pride in keeping them very clean. Come see for yourself!
