Ouimet Canyon is a day-use only park. There are no overnight camping facilities. If you are interesting in camping try nearby Sleeping Giant or Kakabeka Falls Provincial Parks.
This day-use only park is a great place to stop for a picnic and experience the impressive gorge that ice, wind and rain have chiseled into the Canadian Shield over thousands of years.
Ouimet Canyon features a one kilometre loop trail to two viewing platforms along the canyon’s rim. Please stay on the trail and view the canyon only from the designated lookout points. One route/direction along this trail allows for barrier-free access to the lookouts.
Ouimet Canyon provides great opportunities for bird watching, as sections of the raised boardwalk trail get you closer to the forest canopy to see and hear neotropical migrants (birds that breed in North America and spend winters in Central and South America), as well as year round residents of the boreal forest. You many also get a glimpse of the threatened Peregrine Falcon, which occasionally nests on the cliffs of the canyon.
This day-use park has picnic and toilet facilities located near to the parking lot.
The park’s vault toilets and one route to the canyon rim are barrier-free.
