Car Camping

Emily offers car camping in four campgrounds. The Lookout, Hill, and Circle Campgrounds offer many large, private and grassy sites that can accommodate various types of equipment ranging from tents to large trailers. Many of the sites offer electrical hookups.

Cedars Campground offers private tent only sites. Sites in the Cedars Campground are non-electrical.

Group Camping

Group camping is a service provided in many of Ontario’s Provincial Parks. It provides an opportunity for organized groups to camp together. Although any group of persons may apply for a group campsite, preference is given to specialized and/or youth groups.

Emily Provincial Park operates three group camping areas, with all group campsites accommodating a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 50 people per site.

Campsites 1 and 2 are for TENTS ONLY. Campsite 3 can accommodate up to ONE TRAILER. Electricity on site (2 x 15 amp, 2 x 30 amp). Group campsites are not designed for large trailers. They have serious impact on the sites. This can lead to degradation and potential closing of sites.

Park Rules and Regulations:
All regulations associated with provincial parks apply to group camping. Please call the park office for more information in regards to rules and regulations
