New Camping Rules for 2023 (7-night max) – new for 2023 are revised rules about the maximum number of nights you can camp. In this park, if you are camping between July 1 and the Saturday of the Labour Day long weekend, you’ll be restricted to no more than 7-nights at this park. Outside of those dates, it’s still the old 23-night maximum. Ontario Parks promises this will be clear when booking.
Rules for backcountry camping and the roofed accommodation haven’t changed.

Camping & Accomodation
Campsites: Camping experience for everyone: RV, car camping, backcountry, and roofed accommodations
Hiking, Biking & Paddling
Trails: Great hiking trails from 1 km in length to 17 km in length
Bikes are only allowed on the main park roads. Despite this, it is a nice park to bike around especially when the main park gates are closed. Park carefully at the main entrance and you’ll pretty much have the whole park to yourself. Word of warning – best not to try this too early as they don’t snowplow most of the park roads (personally experience but it was still fun).
Great routes around the lakes close by and also a nice inlet stream that goes for some distance. You can find more information on our other site Easy Ontario Paddling Adventures.
