Lovesick Lake1 Park, Lovesick Lake Beach Resort and Lovesick Lake RV SalesTHE PARKNestled in the heart of the Kawartha’s, the quiet and friendly Lovesick Lake Park is great for all ages. Just 32 kilometers north of Peterborough, in Burleigh Falls, this family-owned and -operated campground is surrounded by forests offering spacious seasonal trailer sites, getaway cottages, and terrific camping sites. Visitors enjoy beautiful scenery, nature trails, sandy beaches, good fishing and a full recreational program for all ages. As well, this park also includes a wonderful restaurant and gift-shop. At this time the park had grown to 50 sites in total, and consisted of two rental cottages (the Holmes? family cottage and the private island cottage), 50 wooden boat docks, and a gas pump for boats. With a vision in mind, the Purves? began by creating 20 overnight camping sites and expanded the tent and trailer park to 145 sites. The new camping areas were made using the available fill and rock left over from the reconstruction of highway 28 in 1979. The new tent and trailers sites extended further into the hill, where guests could now enjoy the park?s beautiful forest setting even more. During this phase the Purves family stayed true to their values, preserving as many trees as possible ? a philosophy and practice to which they have continued until today. Today the park has 160 seasonal campsites, 20 overnight sites, and 143 boat docks. Half of the 20 overnight campsites have electricity (30 amp) and water supplies. The list of activities at the park is almost endless. The 2012 program included; a regatta weekend complete with family games, a BBQ on the beach, sand castle building, a summer photo contest, dances ? kids? and adults? ?with music ranging from Western (Country Dance and Corn Roast) through Rock, Pop, Classic Hits and originals, Canada Day festivities, a horseshoe tournament, Sumo wrestling, 3 Super Bingos, and ?Christmas in July,? complete with Christmas tree decorating, a hockey tournament, wagon ride to the North Pole, and gifts from Santa. Many events include a wagon ride for transportation. The Purves family feels fortunate to have a great staff, and together their team is full of people dedicated to the park?s mission, values and customers. They ?have built our business on delivering nothing but the finest products and service. ?This philosophy has been extended to the newest arm of the business: Lovesick Lake Beach Resort. . .
