Escape into nature at Bon Echo Provincial Park, a testament to Ontario's natural beauty and a prime spot for hiking of all abilities. You'll find several lakes located in the park including the Mazinaw Lake, the second deepest in the province and home to the 100 m (330 ft) high Mazinaw Rock. A lulling tide surrounds the soaring escarpment, featuring over 260 native pictographs and responsible for the loud echo that gives the park its name. Discover the rock and its surroundings through a selection of trails, ranging from 1 km (0.6 mi) to a challenging 17 km (10.6 mi), or unwind on a scheduled lake boat tour and its mighty rock. Numerous camping options are available, as well as canoe rentals.

  • Spent a week at Bon Echo this fall. Absolutely beautiful are my only words to describe this Park. Great beach, great hiking trails, lots of history to learn. Kayaking was excellent and the pictographs...  more »
  • This campground is quite huge. Its highlight is the petroglyphs on the rocks close to the lake. We hired a canoe and off we went. However, we didn’t know where to look and how the petroglyphs looked l...  more »

  • This park is great! I have a camper trailer and the lot sizes work great for campers, RVs, or traditional tents. The cliffs with their ancient pictograms are a must see, but be prepared to rent a canoe or kayak (which are very reasonably priced) to get out to them. It's also got a pet friendly area, so my dog could share the vacation instead of needing to be boarded somewhere. A weekend isn't really long enough to really take in all that the park has to offer, so you're better off booking at least 4 days. I'll be returning next summer for a week!
  • You have to visit here at least once to understand it. A review simply can't do it justice. It's a great spot for camping with a family because of the visitor centre and other facilities. The hike to the top across the lake is great and you are rewarded with a spectacular view at the top! We return every year and will continue to do so for a long time.
  • Just stayed in a yurt over the May long weekend. Yurt was very comfortable, sleeps six (2 bunk beds) with electricity and heaters. Outside there is a picnic table, with a propane BBQ with all the tools. All of this sitting on a beautiful wooden deck (with a ramp for wheelchair access). Only a 2 minute walk to full washroom/shower facilities. Amazing trails, beaches, and views all over the park. In season there is a ferry to see the native art on the rock cliff, and to hike the trail at the top. Overall amazing trip and an amazing place to visit. Have been before and will go again.
  • Always one of my favourite provincial parks to visit - just passing through today as part of a road trip, but the staff was super friendly and accommodating. A quick visit to the boat launch to grab some photos and the bugs chased us off unfortunately. A friend and I visited as part of our adventure checking out places listed (including this one) in the "150 Unusual Things To See In Ontario" book.
  • If you want a gorgeous place to camp offering multiple levels of camping, this is the perfect place to go. With loads of hiking trailers, scenic walks and beaches, there is something for everyone. The facilities are well maintained and there are hosts to help you find your way. The staff are friendly and informative and the sites are large with decent privacy. Weather you're in a tent, camper or RV, there are great options for all.
