Activities in Algonquin Park
Algonquin, the first provincial park in Ontario, protects a variety of natural, cultural, and recreational features and values. As one of the largest provincial parks, Algonquin is diverse and offers something for nearly everyone.
Algonquin Park has over 1,500 lakes and 1,200 kilometres of streams and we have recorded 54 different species of fish in the Park. In addition, Algonquin Park is home to some of the finest Brook Trout and Lake Trout fishing in the world!
Go out in the evening or, better still, at dawn and the two or three hours which follow. Early morning is the best time to see birds and mammals, it is the coolest, most beautiful part of the day and one which you will have almost entirely to yourself, even when the Park is full.
Throw on your backpack and head out for a few days and nights of camping in Algonquin's backcountry. Backpacking trails allow you to explore loop routes ranging from 6 to 88 kilometres in length.
The clear, clean lakes of Algonquin offer endless opportunities for swimming. All campgrounds and picnic areas have designed unsupervised beach areas, plus the backcountry offers hundreds of lakes for swimming.
Algonquin Park is home to 7,630 square kilometres of canoe tripping opportunities. With 2,000 kilometres of canoe routes and portages, you can build your own short trip or extended adventure. See the links below for more about canoeing in Algonquin's backcountry
The Minnesing Mountain Bike Trail is a steep, rugged mountain bike trail consisting of hilly, sometimes muddy, terrain filled with rock, roots and obstacles unsuitable for small children and unfit adults
Explore Algonquin at its best; a vast landscape of maple hills, rocky ridges, spruce bogs, and thousands of lakes, ponds, and streams. By paddle and portage - more than 2,000 kilometres of canoe routes and over 1,900 campsites await those who seek the rugged beauty of Algonquin Provincial Park. Additionally, Algonquin has three backpacking trails which also probe the heart of the backcountry.
