Who we are

Riverside, Ontario's newest summer destination serving the gay male community, is celebrating its 12th season this year!


We are a private, members only gay campground & safe space for adult men. Our beautiful 96-acre wooded campground in the Land O'Lake region of eastern Ontario is located halfway between Ottawa and Toronto, and is an easy drive from either city.  Riverside is easily accessible from highways 401, 37 & 7.  We are also a quick drive from Kingston and Peterborough and the U.S. border too. 


Riverside offers over 2400 feet of waterfront on the Skootamatta River, in addition to 110 tent and RV sites. All of our sites are extra large, private, and well treed.  We have clothing optional camping areas too. Campsites are available by the day, week, month or season. We also have a beautiful, heated and completely private in-ground pool, numerous theme weekends throughout the summer,  Friday night community bonfires, Saturday night dances most weekends, a Pavillion and Courtyard entertainment area and more.
