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

For some reason I had never made it to Rushing River before, even though it came highly recommended by friends and family. My companion and I were spending a couple of days in Kenora. She suggested we spend some time at the park, as she had enjoyed visiting in the past. We went for half a day. Which was a... More

This is a must-do for any visitors to the Kenora area. It is a beautiful, family-friendly park with a nice swimming area, canoe rentals, picnic sites, immaculate rest rooms and change rooms. Our children and grandchildren enjoy swimming and boating, and we all love walking along the trail by the rapids. While we do not camp, we love coming here... More

We did a day trip to this park as we hadn't been in many years. The place is just as I remembered it. We didn't see any of the issues that a previous reviewer had complained about. Water was fantastic, everything was really clean. New showers and washrooms. Lots of hilly rocky camping sites with just incredible scenery. Everyone seemed... More

Growing up in Kenora I have had the pleasure of spending a countless amount of time at Rushing River! Following that tradition I now take my own children to enjoy the park! All beaches are fun and clean...our favorite being the main beach! Washrooms and shower houses were always clean when I went! Love camping here and never had any... More
