Camping & Accommodation
Most of the campsites are within a short walking distance of scenic waterfalls. Almost half of the sites in the park are electrical and all electrical sites are situated in a pine forest.
Each site has a fire pit and picnic table and is located close to vault toilets and water taps containing potable water. A comfort station at the centre of the campground has flush toilets, showers, and laundry facilities.
Two campgrounds, A and B, offer electrical sites and are situated closest to the comfort station. There are many large sites suitable for RVs and trailers although none are pull-through sites.
Campground A has two barrier-free campsites; these are located close to the comfort station and have barrier-free fire pits and gravelled ground cover.
Campground D is located in an area of mixed forest near the day-use and swimming area. Some of the sites in D are close to townhomes and activity.
Two large group sites are available at Chutes and both are non-electric. Group site #401 can accommodate 25-30 tents and is a five minute walk to the comfort station and a ten minute walk to the beach. There is water on-site and bathrooms nearby.
Group site #402 is slightly smaller and will accommodate 10-15 tents. The site is a five minute walk to the campground and a ten minute walk to the beach. A water supply and bathrooms are located close to the site.
Call the park for more information at 705-865-2021.
Campground C is a radio-free area. This campground is situated in a mixed forest and is close to the hiking trail and day use area. The sound of the main waterfall can be heard from campsites #90-96.
Hiking, Biking & Paddling
Twin Bridges Trail – 6 km return (2 hours) moderate
Following the Aux Sables River, this trail leads to lookouts at the falls and the Seven Sisters Cataracts. Interpretive panels at the Falls Lookout tell the history of the area. There is an interpretive trail guide available.
Other trails to hike in the area include the Cup and Saucer Trail on Manitoulin Island, Willisville Mountain in the La Cloche Range near Espanola, and the many trails at Mississagi Provincial Park near Elliott Lake, an hour northeast of Chutes.
Biking is the best way to explore this beautiful park! There are no dedicated bike trails, but you can bikers on local roads just outside of town. Chutes – which means ” waterfall” in French-can be found about two blocks north from Highway 17 and right next door where Massey College campus lies at your disposal as well if exploring by foot isn’t enough excitement for one day
Chuteux Falls offers stunning views that will make any photographer green with envy while they’re stuck inside taking pictures all week long because it rains frequently up here during autumn
