Whether you’re celebrating an early spring or clinging desperately to the last shreds of winter, whether it rains, snows or shines, you’ll have a cozy homebase for your outdoor adventures.
Our yurts and cabins are very busy over March Break, but after March 19, almost every park has great availability! March is also your last chance to visit parks like Silent Lake and Windy Lake before they re-open for spring.
Accommodations featured below were available as of 12:00 pm, February 23, 2017.
Looking for fun winter outings? You’ve come to the right place.
Across the province, Ontario Parks offer a bounty of winter activities for families. Some host special events like Family Day celebrations. There are parks with cool ice trails through the woods to skate and hundreds of kilometres of park trails to ski. Local ski clubs keep many park trails groomed and track set and winter ski loppets have become annual family gatherings. A couple of snowshoe races are even held every winter on designated snowshoe trails. Tobogganing is also popular. At Arrowhead, park visitors can even borrow a tube to take down a hill groomed especially for snow tubing. Use the Park Locator tool on the Ontario Parks’ website to help you search for winter park amenities or browse past Park Blog post for ideas. Here are some other helpful sources to get you started:
