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...

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
