Today’s post comes to us from MacKenzie Schmidt, Discovery Program Coordinator for our Algonquin Zone.
For centuries, wolves have captured our imagination and wonder. Tolstoy wrote about them, biologists have studied them in earnest, and campers staying at Ontario Parks have had the opportunity to howl to them during public wolf howls since the 1960s.
In fact, the very first public wolf howl at Algonquin Provincial Park (1963) represents some of our earliest educational programming that is paramount to Ontario Parks’ mission today.
Today’s post comes us from Julie Dixon and Chris Rutledge at Pancake Bay Provincial Park.
Picture this: you’re sitting on a beautiful sandy beach, soaking in an awe-inspiring sunset over Caribbean blue waters. Where do you imagine you are?
Perhaps Costa Rica? Mexico?
In fact, you don’t have to travel too far to access views like that — just head north to a little hidden gem called Pancake Bay Provincial Park!

Today’s post comes from Laura Myers, a Marketing Specialist with Ontario Parks.
Approximately 70 years ago, Neys Provincial Park’s campground looked very different than it does today.
During World War II, the area now known as Neys Provincial Park was referred to as Neys Camp 100.
Instead of campers, it mainly held high-ranking German prisoners of war (POW). The camp operated from 1941 to 1946.
As part of Ontario Parks’ 125th anniversary celebrations, we’re very excited to announce a concert tour featuring our very own Wakami Wailers!
The Wakami Wailers are long-time camper favourites, but many fans don’t realize the band first met when working at Wakami Lake Provincial Park in 1981.
