Delayed Park Openings for 2018

The opening dates for some Ontario Parks will be delayed due to the late spring arrival. Many provincial parks are still impacted with wintry conditions and inaccessible snow covered roads. In addition numerous interior lakes still have ice on them and these lakes are expected to remain ice covered for a few more weeks.

Conditions are being monitored and we will be updating this site regularly. Please check back for information on park opening dates.
