Long weekends are never long enough, but any extra day that can be spent camping is a reason to celebrate in our books!
Why not use that extra day to head to one of our pristine and iconic northern parks? There are still many available sites up north, including vacancies for RV and electrical sites.
You can scout out your ideal campsite on our Campsite Browsing/Reservation tool (including pictures of most campsites!), or check out these featured campsites (available as of noon, July 28):
The long sandy beach with warm, shallow water and a playground makes this park attractive to families with young children. Hikers will love exploring the boreal forest and beautiful esker ridges. And don’t forget your fishing gear!
Ivanhoe Lake is 2.5 hours from Timmins, and 5.5 hours from Sudbury.
Kettle Lakes has tons of Natural Heritage Education events this weekend including a children’s detective hike and some weather experiments! Kettle Lakes is part of the great expanse of the boreal forest that covers northern Ontario, and offers great hiking, birding and fishing opportunities.
Kettle Lakes is 4 hours north of Sudbury.
Neys is home to one the finest sand beaches on Lake Superior’s north shore. You can also enjoy viewing sub-Arctic plants, or hike up to the Pagoda to get a spectacular view of Pic Island as it was immortalized on canvas by Lawren Harris of the famous Group of Seven.
Neys is 3.5 hours from Thunder Bay.
This weekend at Quetico is the Arts in the Park Weekend! Join us in celebrating the many facets of the wilderness through various workshops and the children’s arts fair.
