Mid-July to late August is a great time for stargazing campers. This weekend is especially exciting because of the upcoming Perseid meteor shower. At peak time (August 9-13, 2016) — if the skies are clear — you can see up to 50-100 meteors an hour! Astronomers are even predicting that this rate may double this year. And we can’t think of a better place to view the show than one of our beautiful parks.
By the way, are you thinking about the end of summer already? We’re trying not to. But, if you are, the René Brunelle Camp Cabin is still available from August 23 to September 1.
You can scout out your ideal campsite for some stargazing on our Campsite Browsing/Reservation tool(including pictures of most campsites!), or check out these featured campsites (available as of noon, August 11):
This August, Ontario Parks is challenging you to spend 30 minutes in nature each day for 30 days. You know what would make meeting that challenge really easy? Spending a FULL WEEKEND in nature. There are tons of great sites available across the province. We’ve got tent sites, RV and trailer sites AND electrical sites that are open for you to tune back in to nature.
