Visit Ontario Parks for Spectacular Fall Colours!

Have you checked out the Ontario Parks Fall Colours Report? This report tells you where colours are reaching their peak across the province, and what autumn adventures are waiting for you.

Fall is already in the air, but that doesn’t mean camping is over. Many Ontario Parks are open until Thanksgiving and offer roofed accommodations such as yurts, cabins, cottages and hydro sites that can help minimize the chill. This year, Arrowhead Provincial Park has opened 68 new hydro campsites! If you would like one of these sites, be sure to reserve early because they are filling up fast!

Ontario Parks holds a variety of special events throughout the fall season. There is something for the hiker, the art lover, and the entire family! Here are some special events happening in the near future:

  • Wild for the Arts Festival is taking place at MacGregor Point Provincial Park on September 20th & 21st, which celebrates nature and the arts.
  • Algonquin Provincial Park is offering a two day workshop on extending your RV camping session, from September 26th & 27th. The workshop is hosted by Frank and Judy Spence. Please note a workshop fee applies.
  • On September 27th, Bonnechere Provincial Park is hosting a fall guided hike. Come out and enjoy the beautiful fall scenery
  • Check out the Frontenac challenge, and hike all 160 km of the trails at Frontenac Provincial Park during the fall season! Are you up to the challenge?
  • These are just some of the many events happening in Ontario Parks as the seasons change. For more information visit our website at, and click on Visiting Parks and scroll down to Park Events.

  1. It’s unfortunate that many provincial parks do not stay open for camping beyond the Thanksgiving weekend. With much of the fall color having arrived late this year we find ourself wanting to camp and enjoy it, but with all the local parks having closed to RV’s last weekend we’ve nowhere to go.

  2. I agree Mark, if only more Ontario Parks could stay open through the four seasons although there are a few that do. We have been travelling Ontario Parks for the 2008 season and MacGregor Point Provincial Park, Algonquin Park in Mew Lake are two we have stayed in that are open all four seasons. Last winter we stayed in MacGregor Point on Lake Huron, a beautiful place close to Port Elgin and a great staff and camp host that makes your stay feel like your part of a community, whether you’re there all winter as we and a few others did or just spend your weekends there.

    We are currently staying in Algonquin Provincial Park at Mew Lake in our RV for the winter season and it is beautifully breathtaking. Everyday the scenery changes and the staff are wonderful as most Ontario Parks staff we’ve visited is. It has an up to date comfort station with heated floors powered by solar panels and propane added if needed. All visitors that we have spoken with since camping here love it and return year after year. If you can’t get your RV up here for the winter the Yurts in both MacGregor Point and Mew Lake have an almost cottage feel. Our blogsite shows much of the beauty our Ontario Parks have in all seasons. Take a look and maybe you’ll decide to rent a yurt or bring your RV and we’ll have a chance to say hello to a fellow camper who enjoys the beauty Ontario offers.
