  • This has to be the most beautiful park I have visited. The views are spectacular, hiking is great and numerous camping sites available.  more »
  • Bon Echo is a beautiful provincial park. The experience of visiting there is ruined by the swarming mosquitoes. It is not an enjoyable experience and is quite dangerous to have children and adults bit...  more »
  • A great spot for hiking and canoeing. Very reasonable canoe rental rates. Definitely do the hike to the top of the cliffs.  more »

  • Amazing and breath taking place to camp. We visit this park each year. The park is well kept and super clean. The water is good for swimming, it is not sandy but very rocky shorelines.
  • Beautiful park. Make sure to book ahead of time. Not a good place for last minute. It's worth the drive up. Good place for the family or a friendly get away.
  • When I went, I booked last minute. The only campsites that were available were rated as "very poor". But when I arrived, there was nothing wrong with my campsite other than a rock in the ground that could be avoided. The swimming was very nice and the comfort stations varied in quality. The one closest to me was fine for using the toilet and some people might say it was fine for showering too. When I needed to shower I would go on a pleasant walk to one of the nicer ones.
  • This is one the best Provincial Parks in Ontario! It is situated on a Mazinaw Lake, which is approximately 13 kilometers long and about a in wide. The park is clean and well maintained with a network of hiking and cycling trails along with access to all water sports. The highlight of the park is "The Rock" a 250 ft sheer rock face which you can access by water in minutes. There is also a hiking trail to the top, with spectacular views of the lake and surrounding countryside. This is a park isn't real close to a major city so be prepared to drive if you want to seek urban entertainment for an evening.
  • Beautiful amazing views! Will visit this place often! Got a kayak and didn't have cash but the guy let me pay him the next day! So nice! Ended up paying the next day and getting another hour and the other dude let me take my time (spent easily 2 hours for the price of 1). Great kayaking experience. Everything is great about this place. VISIT!
