Recommended by Stephanie Hanley:
Bring your tent or trailer to one of eight organized campgrounds located in the Parkway Corridor. Use the Ontario Parks reservation service to ensure a place will be waiting for you and then come for a memorable visit. We even have special, paddle-in campsites on Canisbay Lake for people wanting to have a slightly more rugged experience. As reservations are site-specific, choose which site you would like by viewing our campground maps.

For those people who do not own a tent but would like the experience of staying in a campground, the Mew Lake Campground has 7 yurts - semi-permanent, tent-like structures equipped with furniture.

For the location of each of the following campgrounds along the Highway 60 Corridor refer to the Parkway Corridor Map

For campground fees, refer to our page on Park Fees and Permits.

For information on group camping, refer to page on the Whitefish Group Campground

For campgrounds located outside of Algonquin Park, refer to our Services section.

Peripheral Camping Areas


The Kiosk Campground is located on the north end of the Park on a beautiful lake named Kioshkokwi (which means Lake of the Gulls). Kiosk is 31 kilometres south of Hwy 17 on Hwy 630, which is 45 kilometres east of North Bay and 19 kilometres west of Mattawa.

It's a delightful place to camp for a few days or a week and from which to explore the north end of Algonquin. The campground is open from the last Friday in April to Monday of the Thanksgiving weekend. It offers 17 waterfront sites, cold running water, flush toilets, and an historic ranger cabin available for rent adjacent to the campground. As at other areas in the Park, the beach is not patrolled or supervised, and dogs are not permitted in the beach area.

Kioshkokwi Lake has good trout and bass fishing; Mink Lake offers trout fishing while Manitou Lake offers both trout and bass fishing. Motors are restricted to 20 horsepower on Kioshkokwi Lake, and are not permitted elsewhere.


Want to ease yourself into a wilderness experience? Then try camping at the Brent Campground on Cedar Lake, the Park's second largest lake and one of its most beautiful. Just west of Deux Rivières on Hwy 17 turn south on the Brent Road (gravel) and drive 0.5 kilometres to the Brent Office where you can obtain Park information and purchase your permit(s). Continue on the Brent Road for 39.5 kilometres to the Brent Campground on the north shore of Cedar Lake.

The campground is open from the last Friday in April to Monday of the Thanksgiving weekend. There are 30 sites available - some with direct water access. The campground offers cold running water and vault toilets. As at other areas in the Park, the waterfront is not patrolled or supervised. Outfitting services and camping supplies are available for purchase at the Brent Store, or one can simply stop in to view the many artifacts on display. The historic Brent Ranger Cabin is located on Cedar Lake and is available for rent.

The fishing on Cedar Lake is great for trout, walleye, and bass. Motors are restricted to 20 horsepower on Cedar Lake, and are not permitted elsewhere.

Now it's time to put your hiking boots on and go exploring. The Brent Crater Trail is a two-kilometre interpretive trail that explains the wonders of a 450-million-year-old meteor strike. You can first observe the crater by climbing the observation tower located eight kilometres from the campground and then proceed along the well-marked trail nearby. Don't forget to take a trail guide booklet to read at the different posts along the trail.


Looking for a new area to explore in Algonquin? Tranquillity and breathtaking wilderness views await you in Algonquin's East.

Located approximately 19 kilometres west of the Sand Lake Gate and five kilometres south of the Barron Canyon Road, Achray Campground is situated on Grand Lake. The Barron Canyon Road is located just south of Hwy 17 near Pembroke off County Road 26. It leads into the heart of Algonquin and offers incredible opportunities to camp, canoe, hike, and explore. The Barron Canyon Road begins as a paved roadway, then becomes a maintained, two-wheel-drive accessible, gravel road. Sand Lake Gate, the Park Office where both permits and information are available, is located at km 18.

While campers and day visitors may access the east side for most of the year, the gate located one kilometre from the campground is locked after (Canadian) Thanksgiving until the last Friday of April.

Achray is open from the last Friday in April to Monday of the Thanksgiving weekend and offers beautiful sand beaches, hiking and interpretive trails, and the 'Outside In,' an interpretive centre. Tom Thomson, one of Canada's most famous landscape artists, worked here in 1916, and a short walk south of the campground is the scene that inspired the famous canvas - The Jack Pine . The campground offers 45 sites, cold running water, flush toilets, a waterfront yurt available for rent, and a small Ontario Parks merchandise store. As at other areas in the Park, beaches are not patrolled or supervised, and dogs are not permitted in the beach areas.

Note that Achray Campground is a radio-free campground. Radios, tape decks, CD players, and similar equipment are not permitted in the entire campground unless the user is wearing headphones.

Grand Lake really lives up to its name and is a haven for recreation. Motors up to 10 horsepower are allowed, destination campsites abound on this and adjacent lakes, scenic waterfalls are within a short paddle, and great canoe trips start and end here.

Algonquin South

Here you will find a 20-vehicle parking area with a cluster of six walk-in campsites suitable for tent camping (Interior camping regulations apply); more Interior campsites on Kingscote, Scorch, and Branch lakes; a hiking trail; a mountain bike trail; and horseback riding opportunities.

Motors, with a limit of 20 horsepower, are permitted on Kingscote Lake.

The travel time to this area of the Park is about one hour less for those coming from the Bancroft area when compared to the campgrounds along the Highway 60 Corridor.
