Awenda Provincial Park

Barrier Free

Awenda’s six comfort stations are barrier-free as is the park amphitheatre.

Each campground has a designated barrier-free campsite (sites #24, #96, #141, #193, #215, and #295), with a modified picnic table, easy access to drinking water and the comfort station.

All campgrounds have barrier free toilets/outhouses available.

The First Beach area is serviced by three barrier-free vault toilets, viewing platform and the one kilometre Beaver Pond Trail and boardwalk. The Kettle’s Landing day use area has a barrier-free vault toilet, boardwalk, picnic and viewing area. The park also has a free non-motorized all-terrain wheelchair service.

Comfort Station(s)

Comfort stations, complete with accessible showers and flush toilets are available in each of the park’s six campgrounds: Turtle, Hawk, Bear, Deer, Wolf and Snake.

Day Use
