Extended fall camping at six parks

Cooler weather. No bugs. The pumpkin pie aroma wafting from your campfire, and the warmth of hot chocolate in your hands. It must be fall camping season!

These six parks will be extending their camping season this year:

Balsam Lake Provincial Park

Open until October 21, 2019

Family of three walking on fall leaves along trail. The youngest in the middle.

Whether you’re tent camping, driving an RV, or staying in the park’s luxurious cottage, you’ll find fall coziness everywhere at Balsam Lake.

Follow the Lookout Trail for a panoramic view of the fall colours, or enjoy the crunching of leaves beneath your feet along the Plantation Trail.

Bass Lake Provincial Park

Open until October 15, 2019

Sunset over Bass Lake.

Looking to do some late season boating?

Located 10 minutes west of Orillia, Bass Lake is the perfect spot to enjoy some time on the water. Breathe in the crisp fall air along the shoreline or sit back and catch a gorgeous sunset.

Mikisew Provincial Park

Open until October 15, 2019

Shows a site at Mikisew covered in beautiful fall colours.

Sleep in a campground surrounded by mature maple trees in all their fall beauty, or tuck yourself away in a lovely red pine forest with that fresh pine smell. Don’t forget to try out the new disc golf course!

Presqu’ile Provincial Park

Open until October 21, 2019

Birder looking through binoculars.

Presqu’ile is your dream destination for all things birding — spend the fall migration here!

And don’t forget the colours. Walk down to the lighthouse or meander along the beautiful, colourful shoreline!

Rushing River Provincial Park

Open until October 15, 2019

Two campers sitting by the fire.

Rushing River is approximately 2.5 hours from Winnipeg and about 5 hours from Thunder Bay. With playgrounds, beaches, hiking trails, and — of course — the rapids along the river, what’s not to love?

Sandbanks Provincial Park

Open until October 21, 2019

Choppy waves on Lake Ontario with a tree changing colours in the foreground.

Couldn’t get in during the summer? Now’s your chance!

Stay and explore the campground or step out and discover Prince Edward County, from apple and pumpkin picking, to beer and wine tasting, and hunting for treasures while antiquing. Just remember to come on back to catch the incredible fall sunsets!
