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

Highly recommended to anyone in... More

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
