Ontario Parks 2013 Season


Ontario Parks 2013 Season

Ontario's provincial parks are popular camping spots. We recommend you reserve ahead of time. Overnight stays can be reserved up to five months in advance of your arrival date.

To reserve a campsite, call 1-888-ONT-PARK (1-888-668-7275) between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. daily, or book online 24 hours a day.

Seasonal or annual day-use passes are also available. Some parks offer yurts, cabins and cottages for rent in addition to campgrounds for tents and trailers.

For a complete list of provincial park fees, visit the Ontario Parks website.
