ALWAYS check Alerts and other information on the official website, as conditions and facility availability are subject to change.
NOTE: Either this is a backcountry camping and hiking park best enjoyed by experienced paddlers and adventurers or it may involve an exceptionally long drive. Accessing the park may be tricky. It is outside the scope of our website, and you should contact the park for information about activities and facilities.
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.
