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

The park was totally abandoned at this time of year and it was very peaceful and tranquil. We went on a hike around and thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures by the rushing river falls portion!

The park was not open for camping but the picnic area was open alongside the scenic r little Rushing River. The picnic area is so lovely and the toilets were open and clean. Nice place to stop for a rest break or picnic although the daily fee is pretty exorbitant in Ontario Parks in my opinion.

Rushing River is a wonderful place to spend a few hours, days or a whole week! The camp ground is well serviced and has sites of various sizes and views, some with electricity. Book early in the season as this place fills up quick in the summer months. There are many activities such as swimming, camping, boating, canoeing, fishing and... More

Not far from Kenora, Rushing River Park is a great little excursion. The river really is rushing, with rapids and small falls. You can stroll along the stream, or sit and absorb all those negative ions. Good camping here too.

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 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
