Camping in Ontario

“The Province of a Thousand Lakes” is a vast expanse for campers to discover. Ontario’s three national and 338 provincial parks cover over 14 million hectares, from the Canadian Shield to the Great Lakes Lowlands. Car camp at one of Southern Ontario’s many provincial parks, or take the long drive up north to find yourself alone with nature. Suggested activities include canoeing in Algonquin, boating in Thousand Islands, and hiking in and around Sleeping Giant.
