Ontario is preparing to welcome the world at the upcoming G8 Summit in Muskoka! Ontario Parks will continue to operate all of their provincial parks during the Summit. Parks in close proximity (like Algonquin and Arrowhead), may have minor delays due to security checkpoints and detours in and around the Huntsville area. Anyone travelling to these parks should give themselves extra driving time.
Road restrictions will begin on the morning of June 23 and are currently planned to stay in place until June 27. This includes restrictions travelling on a portion of Highway 60. Click here for updated information on road closures.
No closures or restrictions within Algonquin Park are expected, however visitors heading to the park through Huntsville, can expect some minor detours as security measures will be in place. The best travel route to Algonquin, from Hwy 11 to Hwy 60, is to take Muskoka Road 117 east from Bracebridge, over to Dorset, and then Hwy 35 north to Hwy 60. This scenic route will only add approximately 20 minutes of extra driving time.
