I saw an article tonight about Mikisew Provincial Park which is a little west of South River on Eagle Lake. Has anybody heard of it or been there?

Looks like the right type of place to visit for us. Maybe next summer as we most likely will be staying close to home with shorter trips.

There would be a lot of black-flies in the Spring, even in June, but if you go in late-July or August they aren't as bad. Even the mosquitoes subside the later in the summer you go.

I stayed there a couple of years ago.....in the 300's, 357 I believe. they have a dog beach, main beach is nice. good canoeing. There was a couple good hiking trails. South River is close by and has a Foodland, Shell, Beer Store and Guardian Drugs.

I would go again.

One of our favourites is Lake St. Peter Provincial Park. It's a small quiet park, south east of Algonquin with waterfront sites.

It's about 40 minutes to Algonquin Park and you can day trip there if you like.

I'm off to Bonnechere in two weeks.

Thanks, Dave. I've been by that on our way up to Algonquin but didn't realize it was there! I found this video of the park. Nice beach.

Thanks. May be easier to book in the off season. We aren't empty nesters yet but our DSs are all plenty old enough to be own their own for 3-4 days.

DW and I are thinking about where to go for 28th to 1st. We realize no reservable spots are available but we wanted to try out some of the other campgrounds besides awenda and earl rowe. Like mara and mcrae or bass lake. Anyone know what those sites are like for privacy?
