We spent 4 nights in the park, at two different sites. The registration process was easy and convenient, the launch site was spacious to allow everyone room to come and go, sites and portages were clearly marked and our sites were in great condition when we arrived. We will definitely be returning to the park in future.

My wife and I and two of our children (ages 12 and 13) spent 4 days and 3 nights kayaking and backcountry camping in the Massasauga Provincial Park. This was my second visit to the Massasauga (first trip was a 5 day, 4 night Scout outing I led in August 2011). We camped on Wreck Island (2 nights) and Port... More

Excellent! Went for a weekend in early August, and can honestly say it was almost perfect. Our group was 2 couples, and we rented canoes from Pete's Point for a beautiful 2hr ride to our campsite (very simple process). Only one of us was an experienced camper, and I will admit it was nice to have him. It is backcountry,... More

Massassauga Provincial Park gives access to the best of the best of Georgian Bay. The 100+ campsites are easy to access and often with no portaging. It was our first time taking our kids (9 and 6) on an overnight canoe trip so we wanted something fairly easy and positive for them and we were not disappointed. We entered the... More

The Massasauga Provincial Park is truly one of Ontario's jewels! It is a water access park and so the camp sites require you to travel by boat, canoe or kayak. It is totally worth it though as the camp sites on Georgian Bay are absolutely incredible. If you haven't been to this park, you have to make the time and... More

Certainly, it is my favorite park… and in early September, 2014 my friend and I embarked on my 6th visit to this park! The weather was still very good and the forecast did not call for any rain. Upon arriving at the park’s Pete Access Point, we were told about very active black bears in the park and advised to... More

One of my favorite places in Georgian Bay. Has an outstanding self-guided nature trail through a few different eco-systems all on one island. More dock space these last few years...only available by float plane or boat...have done both.Took my wife there via float plane on our second date. She is a fabulous photographer and she got some award winning photos... More

It's one of our favorite places in the whole world. A couple of hours from the biggest city in the country and yet you can find some amazingly vast remoteness with no cottages or humans.

Went into the park for August long weekend. In behind Ruddy island to moor for a night . So quiet and peaceful. And beautiful . It's at the end of a bay and absolutely no traffic. Biggest snapping turtle I have ever seen came to visit . Very tranquil spot and unspoiled piece of Georgian Bay .

In August, 2013, we spent over one week camping and canoeing in the Massasauga Provincial Park and it was our 5th trip to this amazing park. This is a very popular park and it may be difficult to get campsites, especially over weekends, although more remote campsites, that require many hours of paddling, often over open and unpredictable waters of...
