  • It is somewhat amazing and indicative of Canada's natural beauty that a park like this lies almost forgotten just north of Kingston. We visited in February, and there wasn't quite enough snow for snow...  more »

  • Just got back from a 4 day camping trip to Frontenac. It's really a lovely park, with easy trails and good swimming. Makes for a rewarding and relaxing trip, but definitely not challenging. Also the sites are extremely close together, but we were lucky and no one else had booked in the areas we stayed. Site clusters 6, 13 and 4 were all quite nice.
  • Good hiking trails. There are a few that you can choose depending on your ability and time. Going around the lakes and seeing the beaver dams was an interesting experience. Beware the black flies! Probably best to have a net/mesh to cover face since bug spray did not seem to work.
  • Typically not too busy with lots of options for hiking, trail running, kayaking, skiing and snowshoeing. Backcountry camping with not frontcountry camping available....avoiding the clutter of car campers into the park. Close to Kingston makes it convenient.
  • A beautiful park with plenty of trails to hike and a variety of educational activities run by volunteers. Very friendly and helpful staff! Year-round events make any time of year worth a visit.
  • Peaceful, clean, and beautiful. If you want, you can borrow a fishing rod and lures from the Park Office and go fishing.
