Hiking: Roll up your tent and pack plenty of trail mix for an overnight hiking and camping adventure into the backcountry along the MacKenzie Trail. There are spectacular views from the top of Bear Mountain and there are two campsites to choose from on the Brush Lakes. You can also hike to the two interior campsites on Semiwite Lake by way of the Semiwite Lake Trail.
Canoeing: The lakes in the park offer interior camping opportunities. There are two sites on Flack Lake, one on Helenbar Lake and two on Semiwite Lake. If you don’t have your own canoe you can rent one at the park.
The 60 campsites in this wooded campground on the north shore of Semiwite Lake are secluded and private. Most are pull-through trailer sites and each campsite is provided with a fire pit and a picnic table. Some sites are on the water (walk-in sites) and many have a footpath leading to the lake.
Seasonal Leasing: There are a number of campsites at Mississagi that are designated for seasonal leasing. These sites are available from the time the park opens (May 18) until it closes on the Labour Day weekend. If you are planning to spend a large portion of your summer in one location, seasonal leasing could be the best option for you. The cost is less than what you would pay if you were renting by the night, you can stay in the park past the 23-day limit, and you won’t have to set up and take down your equipment more than once!
To discuss a seasonal lease prior to the park opening, contact the Park Clerk at Chutes Provincial Park (705-865-2021). Once the park is open you can speak to the Park Warden about how to arrange a seasonal campsite lease.
This program is operated on a first-come, first-served basis.
There is one group campsite at Mississagi. This site is adjacent to the campground and will accommodate 15-20 tents, 4-5 medium sized trailers, or a combination of both. There are toilets and water taps nearby and the site is a five minute walk from the camper’s beach. Picnic tables are located in a roofed shelter.
Reservations can be made by calling the Warden at Mississagi Provincial Park at (705-862-1203) or the Park Clerk at Chutes Provincial Park (705-865-2021).
Four campsites are walk-in (tent) sites and are located on the shore of Semiwite Lake near the day-use area. The distance from car to campsite at these sites is less than 20 metres.
