I decided to go camping for the long weekend, and by the time that decision was made, almost every provincial campground in Ontario was already reserved... except one. I arrived at Darlington Provincial Park after dark, and saw little. The next morning, however, while in search of breakfast, I spotted this place almost within spitting distance from the campground. They think of everything!
I would have to wait, however, as the OPP were using the entrance as a place to catch up on paperwork.
After being abandoned throughout the 90's and first decade of the 00's, it reportedly was demolished a few weeks ago. :(
The last holdout of the original 401 service centers too. All others of this type and vintage were closed and destroyed by mid 2010.
In retrospect, I knew when I saw the graffiti, that the building was now much more noticeable and that the wrecking ball was imminent. Sure enough it is now gone.
RIP mysterious abandoned truck stop.
