Campsite vacancy highlights: September 22-24

We’re expecting summer temperatures this weekend — why not go camping?

We’ve got waterfront and electrical campsites available, PLUS several parks still have unbooked cabins!

Scout out your ideal campsite on our Campsite Browsing/Reservation tool (including pictures of most campsites!), or check out these featured campsites (available as of 12:00 pm on September 21, 2017):

Southeastern Ontario

Ferris Provincial Park

grassy, open campsite
Site 13, Valleyview Campground. Tent camping or RVs up to 25 ft (electrical).

At Ferris, you’ll find over 10 km of trails that take you through forest and riverside settings. The Ranney Falls trail follows the original roadway to Ferris Provincial Park before looping back along the river. The suspension bridge offers a panoramic view of the Trent River Gorge and — of course — the trail’s namesake Ranney Falls.

Ferris is 1.5 hours from Kingston and just over 2 hours from Toronto. 

Fitzroy Provincial Park

grassy, sunny site with pines
Site 115, Pinegrove Campground. Tent camping or RVs up to 32 ft.

Located at the junction of the meandering Carp River and the mighty Ottawa River, Fitzroy offers great family camping with large campsites with lots of swimming and hiking nearby. The park is a great base for exploring the Ottawa valley and the nation’s capital.

Fitzroy is 50 minutes from Ottawa and just over 2 hours from Kingston. 

Southwestern Ontario

Sauble Falls Provincial Park

gravel campsite in forest
Site 12, West Campground. Tent camping or RVs up to 18 ft (electrical).

This historic waterfall used to power a timber mill and generating station. Now flanked by immature forest, the falls are the end of the Rankin River canoe route, ideal for novice canoeists (rentals available). Sauble Falls is the perfect base camp for visits to nearby Sauble Beach and to explore the Bruce Peninsula.

Bonus: check out the leaping salmon and excellent fall fishing!

Sauble Falls is 3 hours from Toronto, and 2 hours from Barrie.

Pinery Provincial Park

campsite in forest
Site 809, Riverside 4 Campground. Tent camping or RVs up to 18 ft (electrical).

This breathtakingly beautiful park offers 10 km of sand beach on the shores of mighty Lake Huron. Sunsets here are ranked by National Geographic as among the “Top 10 Best in the World!” Rent a canoe, hydro bike, paddleboat or kayak to explore the Old Ausable Channel – a provincially significant wetland.

Pinery is 1 hour from London or Sarnia.

Near North Ontario

Bonnechere Provincial Park

flat site ringed with trees
Site 5, Tall Pines Campground. Tent camping or RVs up to 18 ft (electrical).

One of the Ottawa Valley’s hidden gems, your family will fall in love with Bonnechere.

Explore the quiet Bonnechere River, a great spot for introducing little ones to paddling. The park rents kayaks, canoes and stand-up paddleboards, which can be picked up right at the boat launch.

Bonnechere is 2 hours from Ottawa, and 3 hours from Kingston.

Sturgeon Bay Provincial Park

Lake Sturgeon cabin
Cabins (four available this weekend!).

The park’s cozy cabins are perfect for when the temperature drops. Paddlers and boaters can enjoy a scenic tour of Sturgeon Bay, or — if more experienced — head out onto Georgian Bay.

Anglers love Shawanaga Bay, a huge inlet reaching inland from Georgian Bay with hundreds of islands and lots of underwater structure that fish like to hang out around.

Reservations for these cabins by phone only: 1-888-668-7275.

Sturgeon Bay is 3 hours from Toronto, and 1.5 hours from Sudbury.

Northeastern Ontario
