Restoule

Backcountry Camping

Accessible by canoe, kayak, or paddleboard, these backcountry campsites provide an opportunity for easy access backcountry camping experiences. This makes them a great option for those interested in trying backcountry camping for the first time. They’re also great for young families looking for an easy 1 to 3 night camping experience.

Stormy Lake also acts as a jumping off point for multi-day canoe routes down the French River. A round trip route also exists from Restoule Provincial Park, to the French River, north to Lake Nipissing, and then back to Restoule through Shoal and Bass Lakes. The trip generally takes about four to five days.

High water levels may increase the difficulty of the rapids located along the Restoule and French Rivers. Low water levels may increase the number and length of portages on the north/south leg of the route through Shoal and Bass Lakes.

For more information on campsite locations and easy paddling routes check out our “Day Paddling Map” on the Maps page. For any other questions feel free to contact the park directly at (705) 729-2010.
