Five Ontario Parks are getting new roofed accommodation. The cabins at Finlayson Point, Fushimi Lake, Charleston Lake and Bon Echo Provincial Parks are available now for reservations. Presqu’ile Provincial Parks’ retrofitted cabin will be available soon for booking. The new accommodation will add to the existing variety of roofed accommodation in Ontario that includes new cabins earlier this year at Arrowhead Provincial Park as well as a Victorian farm house, two lodges, historic ranger cabins, lakeside cottages and deluxe yurts and cabins.
Here’s a bit more detail on the latest roofed accommodation:
Sportsmen can now enjoy the creature comforts of Fushimi’s new cabin especially on spring and fall fishing trips when temperatures tend to dip. The new cabin sleeps five comfortably and includes a screened-in porch, microwave, coffee-maker, small fridge and gas bbq. Walleye, Northern Pike and Yellow Perch fishing in this Northern Ontario Park are second to none. This Park Blog fishing post talks about Fushimi and other Northern Ontario Parks, . The cabin at Fushimi Lake will be available for reservations (internet/call centre) from July 4 onward.
An existing cabin is being retrofitted to accommodate visitors to this gateway to parks in the Temagami area including Lady Evelyn Smoothwater, a favourite waterway for paddlers. The Finlayson Point retrofit is the perfect place for paddlers who want a bit of creature comfort at the beginning or end of a trip or for the less experienced paddler who wants a base to paddle from each day. Finlayson Point is on Lake Temagami, an hour north of North Bay. The lake is filled with hundreds of islands and bays. This park makes it easy for visitors to explore the lake by offering canoe and kayak rentals. Reservations for this cabin are only available via the call centre at this point.
Soon, you will be able to book roofed accommodation at Presqu’ile Provincial Park, one of Ontario’s most popular year-round parks. And wait ’til you see the view of Lake Ontario from the retro fit cabin that will soon open. The cabin is a short walk from the park visitor centre and Presqu’ile Lighthouse, the second oldest on Lake Ontario. If you love to birdwatch, this is the place to book. Presqu’ile is on a major North American migratory route.
Tall Pines Backcountry Cabin is the latest roofed accommodation to be added to this Eastern Ontario park which also has six yurts in its campgrounds. The rustic cabin is the perfect getaway for boaters or paddlers. Located on the eastern shores of Charleston Lake, the rustic cabin is only accessible by watercraft. It sleeps six comfortably, has solar powered lights and fridge, a deck with a gas bbq and its own floating dock. During the busy summer season, the cabin is only available for week-long bookings. In the shoulder seasons, it is available for shorter stays. For reservations, contact the call centre.
Four new cabins have been added to Bon Echo’s existing roofed accommodation which includes six yurts and an 1870s Cabin on the Hill. Thanks to a partnership with Loyalist College the first cabin was constructed earlier this year and the rest are ready to book now. The new cabins will be similar to those that have been added in recent years to Arrowhead and Murphys Point Provincial Parks.
