Batchawana Bay Provincial Park

ALWAYS check Alerts and other information on the official website, as conditions and facility availability are subject to change.

Day Use Vehicle Permits: because of the popularity of this park, it’s one that may need permits to be purchased in advance in order to guarantee park access. This was started in 2021 and continued in 2022. There’s no reason to believe that this will be kept for 2023.
If you’re smart, grab the permit before any visit, even mid-week. We found this out the hard way at our local Provincial Park.
You can buy the vehicle permit up to 5 days in advance, which guarantees you access to the park on that day. If you have an annual or season pass, you should still book your permit online, but there’s no extra charge.
