For people who love outdoor activities, camping, hiking, and more, Ontario is rich in beautiful locations to pitch a tent and enjoy your time outdoors in Canada’s beautiful wilderness. With so many fantastic camping grounds and Provincial Park areas to choose from, it can become a bit of a challenge to pick the best spot.
The good news is that most of them are fantastic and will provide a great experience, but some places offer different amenities or things to enjoy that you may not find elsewhere. To help you pick the best spot to set up camp for the night, we have narrowed down a list of seven of the best places in Ontario to go camping.
Cedar Rail Family Campground
Located only 30-mins away from one of Ontario’s most popular beaches, Sauble Beach, Cedar Rail Family Campground is an ideal spot for a family weekend away from home in a trailer or RV. Avid hikers can trek along the Bruce Trail, while families can enjoy the floating playground on the side of the river at Cedar Rail. With plenty of modern amenities and activities on-site, this is a great place to go camping as a family.
Hattie Cove Campground
Hattie Cove Campground is located along the shore of Lake Superior, surrounded by a beautiful nature wonderland with ancient rock structures crafted by the land’s original inhabitants. It is a remote camping location based on a first-come, first-served basis for securing camping sites, so be sure to arrive early if you plan to stay here. You will love the incredible views, the vast and undeveloped shoreline, and the lush and stunning forests.
Black River Wilderness Park
Whether you are looking to stay in your car, an RV, a cabin, or even a yurt, Black River Wilderness Park has it all. Its most lucrative offerings include access to the river for canoeing, kayaking, and swimming. Additionally, there are several hiking trails, sporting activities, washrooms/showers, and more for you to enjoy. With over 180 acres of land for you to explore and experience, there is plenty to keep you busy here.
Cyprus Lake Campground
Located within Bruce Peninsula National Park, Cyprus Lake Campground features over 230 plots for campers beside an inland lake. It is an ideal spot for sunset lovers who enjoy spending their twilight hours admiring the skies, but there are plenty of other things to do as well, like hiking and bird watching. With campfires, showers, picnic tables, and pets allowed, this is a popular location to camp in the warmer months of the year.
For a unique camping experience, Rossport Campground places you in a rather remote 1421 acres of land inside the Rainbow Falls Provincial Park along Lake Superior and Whitesand Lake. Hikers will love traversing the scenic trails along the Hewitson River and exploring the abandoned campgrounds for a thrill. If you love to be isolated and deep inside Canada’s wilderness, this is the place to be.
White Spruce Campground
Despite being one of the less visited areas in Ontario, Grundy Lake and White Spruce Campground have a lot to offer. With a waterfront setting and trails leading out from the shores of the lake, you can enjoy the glacially shaped lake and rocky shorelines in addition to the campground’s abundance of amenities.
Campark Resorts Campground
Campark Resorts places you right near the edge of the world-famous Niagara Falls, making it the perfect place to pitch your tent for the weekend if you plan to visit the famous waterfalls only 5 kilometres (3 miles) away. As Niagara’s premier camping ground, you and your family can enjoy a host of different activities and amenities, with friendly staff available to help throughout your visit and answer any questions you may have about the region.
