Your Hosts: Ron & Kathie Parker

Ron Parker

I’m Ron Parker owner/operator of Mountain Trout Camp on beautiful Gillies Lake in the Northern Bruce Peninsula.

After 20 years in the Electrical Motor Industry I followed my dream and bought a small, run down campground with only a handful of Seasonal Campers and NO overnight camping for vacationing families. Only after 5 years later and non-stop working I have reconfigured Mountain Trout Camp to be one of the most sought after Family Camping Destinations on the Bruce. A huge water playground and a beautiful land playground also! We have Wifi, boat rentals, fishing and hanging out by the water on the beach. There is something here to do for all ages.

My greatest accomplishment in the last 5 years is receiving the comments on the beauty and cleanliness of Mountain Trout Camp.


Kathie Parker

Hi, I am Kathie Parker owner/operator of a beautiful Family Campground nestled in Northern Bruce Peninsula on Gillies Lake , one of the cleanest deepest lakes up here!

I surprised myself by changing careers from owner/operator/stylist of a busy hair Salon for 34 years to running a tiny little jammed packed store with many happy children’s faces when they spy the gummy worms, slushie machine and the loaded ice cream freezer!

I feel my greatest achievement in the last 5 years with our new adventure is meeting all the amazing people from all over the world that have chosen their vacation destination with us up here at Mountain Trout Camp!
