What You'll Like:

The essence of Algonquin is in its vast interior of maple hills, rocky ridges, and thousands of lakes – 7,635 square kilometres of forests, bogs, lakes and rivers. The only way to explore the interior of this park is by paddle or on foot. There is also a second Algonquin - along the 56 kilometre stretch of Highway 60. Here you can enjoy camping at one of eight campgrounds, hike one of 14 interpretive trails, take part in the extensive educational Discovery Program, and visit Algonquin’s exceptional Visitor Centre, Logging Museum and Art Centre. Check for details on park events.

  • Wide range of hiking and biking trails;
  • Superb fishing opportunities including world-class trout fishing;
  • Amazing wildlife viewing and photography opportunities;
  • Excellent birding opportunities with spring migrants along with some resident speciality birds;
  • Year-round options with each season offering unique and inspiring activities.

The park offers just as much for visitors in the winter as it does in the summer. Come see the wide variety of activities including camping, comfortable yurts, skiing, snowshoeing and skating.
