Starting May 2, Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park will start accepting camping reservations for its 108 backcountry campsites. These sites are only accessible by canoe and most sites have three tent pads, fire ring, picnic table and a privy toilet. There are six recommended canoe loop routes in the park, ranging from easy to moderate with distances from 5 km to 30 km.
Located 50 kilometres north of Peterborough, Kawartha Highlands is the largest provincial park south of Algonquin. This picturesque park is open year-round and sits along the southern edge of the Canadian Shield. The rugged, rolling landscape of small lakes, wetlands, forests and rocky barrens is a paddlers dream.
