This summer, we joined forces with the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance and Butternut Productions to create some “tasty” new videos with some Feast On chefs (Feast On recognizes businesses committed to sourcing Ontario grown/made food and drink).
Planning a fall camping trip? You’ll DEFINITELY want to try this crowd favourite!
We fell in love with the flame-grilled veggies and juicy ribeye steak, and we’re pretty sure you will too…
Today’s blog comes from Caitie Carney, a member of Bon Echo’s Discovery Program team.
If you asked visitors at Bon Echo Provincial Park “What keeps you coming back?”, the answer you’d probably hear is “Mazinaw Rock.”
Standing 92 m (300 feet) above Mazinaw Lake, Mazinaw Rock is a spectacle that commands the attention of visitors both on land and on water.
This post comes from Kevin Deacon, passionate angler and Head Gate/Park Warden at Sauble Falls Provincial Park.
Fishing is a great experience for anyone, whether you’re looking for a new adventure or you’ve been casting a line for years.
As the summer weather cools down, fall fishing season heats up. Sauble Falls Provincial Park is the perfect place to wet your line and possibly land the big one.

Welcome to the Ontario Parks “Eyes on the skies” series. This series covers a wide range of astronomy topics with a focus on what can be seen from the pristine skies found in our provincial parks.
Many people consider September to be the finest month of the year to enjoy Ontario’s outdoors.
The bugs have all but left and the daytime temperatures are cooler, making the weather ideal for strenuous activities such as hiking or canoeing. To top it off, the leaves begin their beautiful transition through the colours of fall.
With the much shorter days, the nighttime skies are full of celestial splendors that we hope you will enjoy discovering in this edition of “Eyes on the skies.”
Here are our astronomical highlights for September, 2019:
Camping doesn’t always have to involve driving a far distance to pitch a tent.
RVing allows you to experience the beauty of Ontario’s fall colours with more of the comforts of home.
In southeastern Ontario, there are many great RVing opportunities nearby. You can find your adventure by RV at several different parks close to city centres and along major travel routes.
Today’s blog comes from Evan Holt, a Content Development Specialist for Ontario Parks. Evan has completed the Frontenac Challenge five times!
I first heard about the Frontenac Challenge a few years ago. As a seasoned camper, the challenge to hike Frontenac Provincial Park’s 11 loops and 160 km of trails between September 1 and October 31 intrigued me.
I hit the trails and quickly fell in love with this amazing park. Years later, I’ve completed the Frontenac Challenge five times, and learned a lot along the way.
In this blog, I will pass along some of my Frontenac wisdom, and help you get ready to complete the challenge this fall.
