I just booked our annual camping trip to Algonquin Park this week and was lucky to get a good campsite, even though I reserved it five months in advance. The parks are busy in July and August, so if you haven’t made your campsite reservations yet, start making them. If you don’t, you will run the risk of not getting the park that you want or a campsite that suits your needs.
Campground: If you are still undecided over which Ontario Park to camp at, review my previous posts that are accessible along the right side of this page. So far I have done reviews and ratings for 19 parks that I have camped at in the Ontario Parks system.
Campsite: The Ontario Parks reservation system now provides photos of campsites that you can view before making a reservation. This is a great feature to have because it gives you a glimpse of what your campsite will look like. There are many other points to consider when selecting a campsite. For example, do you need a hydro site, or will a primitive site do? Do you want close proximity to children’s activities or amenities or a quieter location, etc?
The Camp Tripper: Refer to pages 5-9 in The Camp Tripper for more tips to help you select the Ontario Park campground that is right for you. Refer to pages 10-13 and 68 for tips on reserving campsites. The Camp Tripper includes: trip planning, reservations, gear, meals, setting up camp, activities, breaking camp, maintenance of gear and many tips for memorable camping trips in Ontario. The book is very reasonably priced and small enough to fit in the glove compartment of your vehicle. Here are four reasons why you might prefer to order it in e-book (electronic book) format:
- The e-book price is 37% less
- No shipping costs, which saves you even more
- Instant delivery to your computer or hand-held device
- Eliminates paper and saves trees
