Provincial parks in Ontario are preparing for the busy summer ahead, and many popular seasonal parks are about to officially open.
Based on the Ontario Parks website, overnight campgrounds will be open as of May 12, while other parks will open their campgrounds by May 19.
For day-use parks, advance reservations may be required, depending on the park. If you’re looking to camp overnight, reservations for campsites can be made up to five months in advance.
The province has also reduced its maximum length of stay for the camping season at select parks in an effort to give more people the opportunity to experience provincial parks this summer.
