  • I have stayed at MANY provincial parks in Ontario - at least one every year since I was a baby. I have to say that this is one I consistently come back to. This year I went with my boyfriend in late J...  more »

  • I have been a resident of Ottawa for 10 years and I never knew that such beauty can be found so close to home! Bon Echo is by far the prettiest provincial park I have been to near the capital region. Everything, the beach, the sunset, the cliffs, and lake, is stunning. Will come again for sure.
  • Love this park for family camping. I do a lot of camping including rugged adventures but this is a great place to go with the family. Especially the walk-in sites (if you can get them!).
  • Beautiful large treed campsites. Very clean & well maintained. Clean washrooms. Canoe, kayak, paddleboard rentals, beaches, dog beach. Boat tours, great hiking trails, Canadian history, ancient pictographs and breathtaking vistas. Bathed in nature, a must see.
  • Absolutely beautiful. The number of beaches is awesome (more than 5) and the rocks along the main waterway are gorgeous. Canoe rental prices are very affordable (almost cheap tbh) and the sites are nice and well-maintained as all provincial parks are.
  • Always a great time. Lots to do and see. Staff are helpful and the bathrooms are well maintained.
