Fall camping in southwestern Ontario

Not ready to say goodbye to summer?

Neither are we.

Fall arrives late in this part of the province, which means campers can extend their fair-weather excursions all through October!

Book a relaxing and rejuvenating midweek getaway at one of these parks:

Earl Rowe Provincial Park

Open until October 10, 2023

A vista of fall colours.

Earl Rowe is located on Toronto’s doorstep, just 85 km northwest.

Hike 11 km of in-park trails ranging from short jaunts to longer half-day treks. We recommend the 4 km Lookout Trail that takes hikers takes hikers to the highest point of the park overlooking Earl Rowe and the surrounding area’s fall colours.

New to camping? Earl Rowe is your park! 

If you’re visiting this fall, you might get the chance to see salmon migrating up the Boyne River to spawn. Keep an eye on the park’s social media for updates.

Selkirk Provincial Park

Open until October 10, 2023

RV campers: look no further. Selkirk is your perfect fall park.

Just 15 minutes east of Port Dover, it offers large grassy sites in beautiful surroundings. Many sites offer both electricity and pull-through access for larger RVs and trailers.

Enjoy a relaxing paddle through the park’s wetlands along Spring Creek or hike their leisurely Wheeler’s Walk Trail. Birders may be lucky enough to see the park’s resident Bald Eagles or spot owls around dusk.

If you need more reasons to give Selkirk a try, you’ll find them here.

Sauble Falls Provincial Park

Open until October 29, 2023

Sauble Falls is the perfect place to wet your line and possibly land the big one. Anglers have the opportunity to hook salmon and Rainbow Trout well into the autumn.

Perfect for families, the children’s adventure playground, horseshoe pit, and volleyball area offer plenty of activities late into the fall season.

Turkey Point Provincial Park

Open until October 29, 2023

Campsite during fall colours with tent.

With plenty of electric campsites, including many with pull-through access, Turkey Point is perfect for September or October camping.

Take in the unique foliage of the Carolinian forest. Various species of ash, birch, chestnut, hickory, walnut, and (the tallest of all) tulip trees can be seen throughout much of the park.

Spot orioles, hummingbirds, warblers, and more as they travel south for the winter.

If you enjoy mountain biking, this park is a great option for a fall trip! Mountain bike trails are available both within and adjacent to the park. For more information, check out the Turkey Point Mountain Bike Club.
