Mississagi Opens for 2013 Season

In September 2012, Mississagi Provincial Park was among the 10 parks that the province announced would be changing from an operating to non-operating designation.  Since that announcement, Ontario Parks has been working with municipal governments to operate three of those parks (Fushimi Lake, René Brunelle and Ivanhoe Lake Provincial Parks) on a two-year pilot.  Ontario Parks is pleased to announce that we are now also working with the City of Elliot Lake to operate Mississagi on a one-year pilot project for the 2013 season.

Mississagi Provincial Park offers rugged wilderness with rocky hills, northern pine and maple forests, and pristine lakes.  Visitors can explore the spectacular landscape on the park`s world-class trail network with over 40 km of trails that visit some of the best lookouts in the province.  The park`s lakes provide incredible trout fishing opportunities as well as an excellent network for canoeists to paddle.  For campers, the park offers not only a car campground of 60 sites but also 7 backcountry campsites.  Explore Mississagi Provincial Park this summer!

The park opens on June 14 and will close on September 2.  Reservations can be made online or by phone at 1-888-668-7275 (ONT-PARK).
