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...

I love Massasauga Provincial Park. Grab your boat/kayak and enjoy great Georgian Bay scenery...it's the best.

Set along Georgian Bay (there are also inland lake sites where I have not visited), this provides wonderful camping experience for both paddlers and motorized watercraft. Visited this summer with my son for some camping and fishing out a small outboard fishing boat. I loved the privacy...not camping sites piled on top of each other. The only complaint I have... More

I Love this park. We go several times every year, and the beauty of it strikes me every time. The fishing is great, the wildlife is pretty good, and the lakes are relatively warm. A couple of downsides: We like to canoe, but the motorboat traffic can be pretty bad, especially on long weekends in the summer. So if you... More

Wreck Island is part of the park and a wonderful place for a hike. There are good docks for mooring. There is a pamphlet guide for a hike across the island and around the perimeter that takes an hour. There are many interesting geological rock formations. The views of other islands in the park are breath-taking. It is a wonderful... More

If you want Hiking or swimming only, don't go there, if you have boat or canoe, it is ok. I tried to check with pet's access point admin, the staff told me they don't any day pass for PARK, Plus the "washroom" is terrible, please hold and try to go any Marina.

This is truly a gem in the provincial parks in Ontario. It is essentially water access only, bu there are a couple of road access points you can use to get your kayak/canoe to the water. If you have a sail or power boat, access is from several points on Georgian Bay. Anchor-off, camp, hike. It is just beautiful. We... More

The Massasauga Provincial Park has plenty of reservable campsites which are only accessible by water. Some are less than 30 minutes by canoe from the put-in point, others may require several hours of intensive paddling and even a few portages. Since 2008 I have visited this park 5 times, once I camped on an island (Wreck Island) whose at least... More

Why is it one of Ontario's best parks? Simple: You can't drive to the camp sites. The Massasauga is a huge park carved out of Georgian Bay cottage country, which has pros and cons. The biggest pro is that all the sites are accessible only by water. If you enjoy canoeing, kayaking, or small-craft sailing this is the park for... More
