An enjoyable stay in real nature. We had a very private clean site. Waterfront with a beautiful view. Fishing was good and the Park staff were extremely helpful. I would recommend to people who do not want to be crowded. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wooded sites, well spaced, easy access with our motorhome. Centrally located in the park. Your entertainment is the park, not the campground, We saw moose on the Side of the road. This campground s perfect for the old railroad bicycle trail, which we enjoyed. A great choice if visiting the park. Friendly staff. No WiFi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent New Years Eve and Day in our motorhome. Was always my favorite camping place as a teen. Now as a mom it is still an awesome camping place even in the winter. The warden every night lit a nice bonfire for all guests to enjoy beside the hockey rink. The washrooms were very clean and shower nice and hot! Just be careful of low lying branches due to weight of snow. Most sites were nicely plowed for access with picnic tables. Just bring a snow brush! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The good: scenic park, with fairly large sites and good roads. Lakefront sites available if you book far enough in advance, or go off-season. Lots of hiking; open year-round. The bad: hideously overpriced for electric-only sites. This was the most expensive park (by far) that I've stayed in all year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great park for canoeing, the rail trail for biking is about a 2 km bike ride away. The Wi-Fi is available at the Visitors Center about 8 miles away, it is very slow. There are only a few sites available for big rigs, reserve early or you won't get in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I camped for 4 nights in the electric serviced sites portion of the campground. Sites are flat and sandy. I only had to adjust the tongue jack, TT was level side to side. Some sites don't have a lot of privacy, but not as "open" as it is at Lake of Two Rivers campground. Comfort station was clean. Short ride or hike to the Old Railway Bike Trail and Track and Tower hiking trail. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were very pleasantly surprised by the ease of access to the campground and the sites for our large motorhome - the sites are huge and quite private. The campground is well maintained with new and clean facilities and of course offers all that Algonquin is famous for - hiking, swimming, scenery, canoing, relaxation etc. Don't forget to bring in everything you're going to need, there is a small store nearby but for groceries and most essentials the drive would be about 50km. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Day pass for Algonquin Park included in campground nightly rate. However, I was told I had to go directly to the campground from the east gate. I could purchase a day pass at the gate and hope to get reimbursed at the campground, but no guarantee I would get it. That meant I had to skip some of the sites in the park that required a permit. Campground office staff advised me that water was only available at the trailer sanitary station 2km north of the park. Be aware access road from highway to it is narrow. Nice size campsite (#303), but connecting to electric pedestal very difficult as it was over 50 feet away in the bushes. I ended up using the 15 amp plug as I didn't have enough 30 amp line. I found a water tap nearby to the electric. It appeared to be for all surrounding campsites. No cable TV or Wi-Fi in this wilderness park. After getting contradictory or not very reassuring answers to some of my questions on campground facilities we won't be coming back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our second trip to Algonquin, and again had a great time. The campground is clean, and my husband used the campground shower since the campsites don't have water hookups. Our little trailer doesn't have a very large water tank. He was sweet enough to let me shower in the camper while he used the public one. He said they had great showers, very roomy and a powerful shower spray. During our stay, we saw an abundance of wildlife. Saw one black bear, one wolf, blue herons, beavers, deer, adorable red squirrels, chipmunks of course, a sweet little field mouse who sat with us by our campfire one evening and ran across my husband's feet and best of all were the Moose. I saw three and DH saw I think five or six total. That made my trip complete upon seeing them. I just love moose and have always wanted to see one in the wild. My wish was finally fulfilled. There are plenty of lakes to go canoing, kayaking, and fishing. Algonquin is a beautiful area and worth a visit. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
