Skating in Ontario Parks
Skating through the woods is a truly magical experience.
Arrowhead, MacGregor Point and Sleeping Giant offer skating trails through their campgrounds.
- And don’t worry about the cold, Arrowhead and MacGregor Point also offer warm up stations and bonfires.
- Arrowhead’s skating trail is 1.3 km and is maintained by a Zamboni. It can get busy in the winter – check out our guide on how to make the most of your time there.
- MacGregor Point’s trail is a 400 m loop through the trees.
- Sleeping Giant’s trail is a 300 metre loop through campsites 85-96 within the Marie Louise Lake Campground. Parking is available at the park gatehouse/office with a short 800 metre walk to the skating trail. The skating trail does not have specific hours of operation and day use is available from 8 am to 10 pm. Park fees apply. A small open sided change shelter is available. Bonfires are only available during special events.
For more traditional rinks visit Algonquin’s Mew Lake, or Pinery.
- The parking lot at Algonquin’s Mew Lake campground is made into a large ice rink the whole family can enjoy.
- The area in front of the chalet at Pinery is flooded to create a winter skating rink. Check the Ski Report for the latest rink conditions.
