The two official websites from Algonquin Park are The Friends of Algonquin Park
and the provincial site is at Ontario Parks.

May 9, 2011: Just back from a weekend up at the Algonquin Park. The project we started last year is finally complete. All the trails and camp site GPS coordinates are now in the list.
If you are looking for information about Algonquin paddel-in camp site, you get them at the Portage Store or your outfitter.

February 11, 2018: I spent the weekend at the Mew Lake Campsite. It is open in winter and the sites have electrical hook-ups.
Firewood can be purchased at the unmanned Mew Lake Camp Entrance. Bring cash to pay for the wood. A heated comfort station provides drinking water, flush toilets, showers and Laundromat. Winter caming at mew lake in Algonquin Park.

Over the past years, we visited the old railway bridge on Cache Lake. Check out the pictures from 1990 and some more current ones in the Cache Lake page.

Needless to say, you never know who crosses your path.

GPS Coordinates vs Paper Maps
You may know the GPS coordinates, but they don't translate to the Algonquin Canoe Routes Map. Read this short introduction here GPS coordinate and UTM map grid reference system. If you are stuck with a map but no compass, you can always find North as long as you have an analog watch with you. Enter "How can you tell North with an analog watch?" in your search engine and find out how simple this is. You should read this before you get stuck in the forest.

Accomodation
Camping, Yurt or Hotel? Our first visit to Algonquin Provincial Park was in 1988. We had a tent and upgraded to a camping trailer in 2016.
Algonquin Park has lots to offer, guided tours, wolf howling, hiking, swimming, museums and this is just the beginning. We recommend to reserve your campsite well in advance, it is a very popular spot.

Huntsville is the closest town to the west.
You can find several hotels, cottages, private campsites and Bed & Breakfast east and west of the Algonquin Park.
