Algonquin Park - Ontario

We just returned from a trip to Algonquin Provincial Park (Sept 9 - 21) and wanted to share some images from the area.

Unfortunately we're too early for the fall colours which peak in early October, but the park is just too busy then.

Looks like you had good weather. We were camped @ Arrowhead last week. On Weds' we drove into the Rain Lake access point & hiked along the old railbed for 5 klicks. Checking out the lake for a possible canoe trip next year.

How beautiful! I miss Ontario as well, being a native born Michigander who wandered back and forth across the border.

Thanks Dave for those beautiful shots.

Ontario has such a great network of provincial parks, we are very lucky (Let's just hope they stop increasing the rates for a few years!)

Bigger & private sites and incredible scenery.

Quick question: how do you deal with long stays like this with your grey/black water tanks?

I'm OK with the fresh water, as I have a 5 gallon water container i can use to refill.

Regards,

We stayed 12 nights...the black and the galley tank weren't full yet but close. I'd dump a couple of pails from the grey tanks every two days as the DW likes to use the shower and we were very close to a comfort station.

We tent camped in Algonquin for many years, both along the southern access and through Achray. It was my favourite place to go. One year I took my canoe into the interior for 7 nights of solitude. It was a great experience.
