Rushing River Provincial Park has been a family tradition for years since we lived in Kenora. Love sitting at a picnic table having lunch and listening to the river. Many trails to walk. Seeing the wild life and picking wild blueberries in season are some of the things I love here. There is a beautiful spot to swim at as... More

The beauty of it depends on the level of rain over the year. Beautiful place to take pics. Love that it is a shirt drive from Kenora.

the site is nice. The campsite is right beside from the river and also isolated by the tree. I try to fish but totally need to go with local next time

Rushing River provincial park is but a 20-30 minute drive south east of Kenora Ontario. It is a wonderfully shaded paradise with terrific photographic vistas along the rushing river and cool ponds for a summer's dip to refresh. Great facilities allow for group gatherings and great camping. A true treasure in the great northwest of Ontario.

We have been walking and hiking Rushing River for almost 40 years. As we live fairly close, we do not camp but prefer to enjoy the park either before or after the camping season. This is a very beautiful Provincial park located along a picturesque river/waterfall that also provides access to a network of pristine lakes such as Dogtooth and... More

The fam and I decided to drive to Rushing River from Kenora for a picnic. The campground was closed so we pulled into the picnic area. The kids really enjoyed the wading into the current of the river and running across the bridges. What a wonderful place to visit. The canadian shiled is so beautiful. Highly recommended to anyone in... More

We have been going to Rushing River for years. It has everything, but mostly the best natural swimming hole anywhere. The swimming hole is located just above the rapids and near the southerly campsites. It has a small beach, rocks to dive off and will accommodate any level of swimmer. The 400 campsites, which are bisected by Dogtooth lake, are... More

We had camping spot 272. It was a great spot, it felt secluded (which is what we like), but was still an easy walk to the beach and North Side Nook (where you can rent kayaks, buy firewood, etc). The museum was fun, and the little activity/story time was presented very well. The outhouses were as well maintained as an... More

Recently went with friends to Rushing River...camped on the north side, site #236...amazing site! Great view, right on the rocks and the river, with our own 'beach' so we could swim right off our campsite. Canoe and kayak rentals readily available. (this site is next to dock, which made it even easier!) Lots of 'outhouse' bathrooms throughout the campground, but... More
