We stayed in Kenora for night but took the short drive to Rushing River for the day. We brought along food to eat on one of the many picnic tables. My siblings rented Kayaks and my parents & I spent the afternoon watching the rushing river falls. There were a two small beaches open for public day use and they... More

This is a wonderful park located between Sioux Narrows and Kenora two hours north or Fort Frances on the side of the highway. The campsites generally fill up in summer so make reservations or take your chances. But day use is great. Say, you are on Lake of the Woods but the wind is severe, grab a picnic and head... More

It's a 2-hour drive from our place. Every time we'd want to camp here, it's always fully booked. It only means one thing, lots of people like this park. ;) We always ended up just staying here for a day for a picnic. The rushing river is a good spot for picture taking. Very refreshing! Washrooms are modern and clean... More

My boyfriend and I went with 7 other people, most of them couples as well. We shared 2 campsites, 250 & 252. Not electrical sites but the people beside us did. Can fit 2-3 big tents and a car/truck on the site but will be a bit cramped. All 9 of us were able to site around the campfire and... More

Loved our three night stay here Canada Day weekend. We had a non-electrical site right on the river. The sites are quite smaller compared to other provincial parks, but the fact they are right on the water makes up for that. The bathrooms were quite clean, although I think there should be more outhouses installed. It was a 10 minute... More

Great spot to bring the family, camping is awesome and sites are very private, we always get the non powered and love it. River and falls are a blast for kids of all ages

The store outside the park has canoe rentals and will deliver the boat to the park dock and pick it up at the end of the day. They will also loan you all the equipement you need. July and early August blueberries are ripe for the picking. Great hiking trails. Kids do not need a fishing licence to fish and... More

Throughout our drive from Pembroke, ON to Manitoba, we stopped at every Provincial Park along the way. Rushing River was by far our favourite, and we were on the verge of cancelling our hotel reservations so that we could spend the night camping here. The campsites seem so cozy, while nice and spacious and with some shrubbery/trees/landmark features between each... More
