Poor rating is not given to the environment. It's all about the park management and policy. We booked our camp site at last minute and it's a long weekend. We arrived a week before the holiday, we wanted to switch to another park and extend our stay. However, we were told that we have to pay 50% penalty instead of... More

We recently returned from our camping trip in Pog Lake Section A. Not the greatest campsite but still accommodating for a Tent Trailer. There was a lot of traffic noise from Hwy 60 during the day but tends to get a little quieter at night. Fire wood wasn't the greatest. We had more smoke fires than actual fires due to... More

We stayed at Pog Lake, section A, site 132 in July 2015. This is a large site next to the water. We were happy with how clean it was when we arrived. It doesn't have much view of the lake because the underbrush has filled in, but it does have a short trail (downhill) to the water where we launched... More

If you don't want to hear a lot of noise at night and want to feel one with nature, stay away from A and B campgrounds. We have stayed two summers now and will be returning next year. It's awesome. From C campground, you can take a 15 min walk to the awesome beach in "A" and then leave all... More

For our first camping trip at Algonquin Provincial Park, we stayed at Pog Lake Campground site # 410 for it is adjacent to water tap , near the comfort station, the ground is flat (as supposed to lumpy) & wide and is surrounded by tall pine tress. The staff at the reception were nice, making sure that we had a... More

I stayed here for 3 nights. The best. Electricity and steps to a hot shower with a gorgeous tree obstructed view of the lake. My partner and I car camped and we aren't too outdoorsy so this worked well for us. We had a fire and cooked our meals on the grill. Tip: bring your own grill to put closer... More

I think the last post should be in the radio free zone or out at one of the many portage camp sites that are in Algonquin Park. People do come and go from the camp sites and yes kids run around and make a little noise but that is camping. 10 am at night is really not that bad and... More

each year its gotten worse at Pog Lake. due to a lack of enforcement staff, its party central, don't go here. The staff drive around at 6 or 7 pm in their trucks, and you don't see them again until 10 am. Good luck getting any sleep, as people who camp at POG Lake don't seem to give a damn... More

We have been going to Algonquin Park for nearly 15 years now and mostly to Kearney Lake and have loved every minute of it. This year we tried pog just for a change because we heard a lot of good things about the camp site. Firstly it is a beautiful lake with small rivers running off of it going to... More
