   <!--start algo main paragraph-->Due to a forest fire currently burning on CFB Petawawa property directly adjacent to the Algonquin Park boundary (between the Petawawa River and the Barron River); the   Lake Traverse Road – Barron Canyon Road has been closed and no access to the   east side of Algonquin Park is available.  This is a precautionary measure.  The   road block will be located on County Road 28 near the Portage Store (Schenke’s store).  At this time it is unknown how long the road closure will be in place.  
 Please note that this closure does not affect the Highway 60 area of Algonquin Park or other areas of the Algonquin Park Backcountry at this time. 
This affects   Access points 20 - Sec Lake, 21- McManus Lake,   22 – Achray - Grand Lake  and 23 - Lake Traverse.  
Refunds will be  available for cancelled reservations fees. Further updates   will be provided as they develop.
The essence of Algonquin is in its vast interior of maple hills, rocky ridges, and thousands of lakes. The only way to explore the interior of this park is by canoe or on foot.
              <p>There is also a second Algonquin - along the 56-kilometre stretch of Highway 60. Here you can enjoy camping at one of eight campgrounds, hike one of 14 trails, take part in extensive education programs, and visit Algonquin's superlative Visitor Centre and the Logging Museum.<br />
