We stayed in hardwood hills. I liked the area as it was a bit more rugged. Unfortunately on our last evening we were there, the comfort station near our site was closed down due to a power outage. There was no back up vault toilet in our bay forcing us to drive. Either further into hardwood to a vault toilet... More

I have mixed feelings about Bon Echo. Although the park, Mazinaw lake and the beach are great; the camping sites are small and lack in privacy. When we booked our camping site the privacy rating was listed as "very good". However, when we arrived we had neighbours very close by on all sides. Due to the nature of the park... More

I had been to this park 20 years ago in childhood, and was excited to bring my own daughter. We spent 5 brilliant days camping (Site #91 - fantastic!) here and enjoying everything to park has to offer. We loved canoeing around the Mazinaw lakes. The swimming at the big beach is outstanding - so shallow for so far, with... More

What a wonderful place, and so close to Kingston. My son and I had the best fishing trip of our lives. Though the mosquitos were bad they kept at bay in the wind or around the fire. We had no issues with any bugs once on the water and that's where we spent most of our time. There was a... More

Went for the weekend of June 13-15th. We got lucky in that the rain ended just as we arrived. We were in campsite 25. Overall not a bad site but have been to Bon Echo a few times and as this site is the farthest from everything in the Mazinaw site we drove to the main parking lot for our... More

We spent the weekend at Bon Echo and once again had a fantastic time! We got eaten alive by mosquitoes, but despite this, enjoyed our time around the campfire and by Joeperry Lake. We didn't hike any of the trails due to the mosquitoes, but took a chance that the Joeperry trail would be ok, especially down by the lake,... More

We've visited Bon Echo Provincial Park several times in the Fall. Spending Thanksgiving barbecuing a turkey breast has been a very pleasant experience. The park is a picture of beauty, stunning in its variety of colour and Mazinaw Lake is amazing to canoe or kayak upon. Paddling out to the cliffs gives you a chance to view the pictographs although... More

Went for a day trip to Bon Echo and was worth the drive. The $14.00 cost to enter the park is worth every penny! The grounds are great and easy to navigate. We were able to set up a small propane BBQ and enjoy a nice picnic lunch right on the beach. The beaches are clean and the water was... More

When we arrived, there was no one at the gates to show us where to go. We ended up driving around in circles for twenty minutes before we finally found the canoe rental shack (rather small and in poor shape). There were no more maps available and all the canoes were filthy. Plus the bugs are awful, don't even think... More

As a family, we've camped at many private and provincial parks all over Ontario and Quebec. Bon Echo is one of the parks that we've always wanted to return to. This park has a variety of unique features that families and nature lovers long to. Campers can camp close to the water or deep in the woods. Day visitors have... More
