Over 200 camp sites along a Rushing River on Dog Tooth Lake about 12-15 miles from Kenora. I get a season pass and use the hikes along the lake and river as one of my favourite photo spots. I am an official friend of Rushing River helping put on Fund Raising Bar B Qs in the summer. There are two... More

Rushing River Park has a lot to offer travellers. It has beautiful beaches an awsome rushing river falls, picnic areas and camping spots. This park has great walking trails and a wonderful place to visit or camp at.

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.

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
