New Camping Rules for 2023 (14-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 14-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 & Accommodation
Campsites include a picnic table, fireplace, and nearby amenities. Many are located along the waterfront and 25% are electrical sites.
Fairbank Provincial Park provides a beautiful and isolated group camping area. Located just before the campground, and a short walk to the beach, the site comes with a horseshoe pit, fire pit, water tap, and bathrooms. The site can accommodate four to six small trailers and five to ten tents. Group camping reservations can be made online or by phone.
Hiking, Biking & Paddling
Wa-Shai-Ga-Mog is the original name of Fairbank Lake and is the Ojibway word for “clear water”. A fitting name for a lake where it is possible to see for over 8 m (24 feet) into the spring-fed lake. This short but challenging trail travels up bedrock outcrops and provides panoramic views of the surrounding forests, the Fairbank Fault, and of course the beautiful blue waters of Fairbank Lake. Be sure to bring your camera!
Rating: Easy – Length: 0.5 km, 30 minutes
