Chutes Provincial Park, Massey

#3 of 19 in Wildlife in Northeastern Ontario
Chutes Provincial Park is a recreation class provincial park in Sables-Spanish Rivers, Ontario near the community of Massey, Ontario, Canada. The park is named after a logging chute that diverted logs around the waterfall on the Aux Sables River. The waterfall is considered the main attraction at the park, along with the Seven Sisters Rapids found upstream from the waterfall.Unlike many other provincial parks, its proximity to Massey allows the park to use the municipal water supply, meaning that water does not have to be boiled before drinking.

  • At the end of August, 2017 we spent one night at Chutes, and one month later, in the second half of September, we again camped there for over a week. We were lucky—instead of the fall, the summer fina...  more »
  • Standard Provincial Park, Sites aren't very private and it was loud with what seemed like seasonal camp sites. Did have working laundry facilities and clean showers/ Bathrooms  more »
  • The sites were very private with tall shade trees. We got a site near the falls and it was wonderful to listen to the rushing water. Nice shower house. There's a little store nearby too. Very convenie...  more »
  • Camped at this park on my way to Manitoba. I really enjoyed my time here. My campsite was surrounded by beautiful pine trees, which offered a comforting place to stay for the night. I soon found out that a few steps away from my campsite was a trail that offered a beautiful view of the amazing chutes! There weren't a horrible amount of mosquitos. During my stay, I decided to go for a swim in a pool of water with another marvelous view of the chutes, and although the water was cold, I had a great time and took some amazing pictures!
  • Large private sites in radio free zone. Could hear the falls all night - awesome! This park features a trail that wins past the 'seven sisters' or 7 small rapids/chutes. Very picturesque. I actually was able to do a 5 km trail run on this route. I've been traveling west for the past two weeks and this park has had the most polite friendly staff. Also, the small corner store closest to the park gate man's their own ice which lasted considerably longer than the brand you get everywhere. I recommend this park.
  • Great swimming area. Excellent food truck parked near the entrance in the summer that serves 'Indian tacos'. Lovely place to spend the day!
  • The Chutes is a fun little park! Most parks have a lake with a beach, Chutes has a river with some small rapids you can splash around in. Lots of large, private campsites, dog use area and some hiking trails. It's more of a stop-over or stay 2-3 nights type of place.
  • Great park! It was quiet and peaceful. Staff were always friendly. Amazing trail and waterfalls. Only downside was he beach, expected an actual beach but this was mostly pebbled. Would suggest adding a bit more sand as we had looked forward to swimming and lying on the shore! Everything else was great though.
