My family and I loved camping here, and can't wait to go back next summer! We were in the radio-free tent area, which has a nice elevated view of the lake. Most of the spots were full, but it is very spread out and there are lots of trees, so we didn't feel crowded. The nearby beach was lovely to... More

We had a lovely time camping with family at the Pog Lake Campground. It was quite far off the highway, book the 400 sites, and was absolutely stunning! The campground had a small beach, access to the rail trail, and lots of paths to meander through. It was very private and the towering pines were great shelter for both rain... More

Each summer we spend 5 days at a Provincial Park Campground. This year we chose Pog Lake campground "A" at Algonquin Park. We had an amazing water view site (site #124). The site was large enough for two sleeping tents plus our dining tent and our van with plenty of room left over for kids to play. We were two... More

Boyfriend and I stayed here on our way to Ottawa. Site 189 (non-electric) was on top of a little hill. Little tight to fit a vehicle but our car fit fine. Privacy was not that great in front of us but there was no one behind us. Bathrooms and showers were right beside us which was great! Both were very... More

We liked Pog lake. We have been to camp at almost every campground in Algonquin along Hwy60 and this one was very nice. The comfort station was very clean. The forest was very clean and I loved the straight/tall trees. The sites were generous and had a good amount of privacy despite the tall trees. We found the whole campground... More

Pog Lake is a good campground for car camping and there is enough variety in the area to make a couple of interesting out-and-back day trips with the canoe. Pog Lake is also a drop point for the Portage Store canoe rentals.

If you're looking for a great camp site that is not far off the beaten track (highway) this is a great one. Spacious, clean sites, two beaches and a long hiking trail right beside the camp ground. We stayed at site 315 and the only problem is that it appears on the online reservation as though there is a large... More

We had site 244 it's a big site with water, not to far from the facilities. The site is very flat, so it's good if you have a tent. You can also buy wood for fire. The only problem we had it was with the camper neighbor, they were just yelling at each other. maybe they wanted to scare the... More

All of Algonquin Park is spectacular and breathtaking, but it's Pog Lake campground that has kept us coming back for 21 years. We always camp there, and we hardly ever make a reservation. They have plenty of first-come-first-serve campsites and we've always been lucky, even before a long weekend. Hiking, canoeing, fishing and atmosphere at its best. Our 2nd home...

While Mew Lake seems to be a favourite for many of us, the reality is that POG Lake is the best overall along Hwy 60. The main reason is that the sites offer good privacy, its a good sized lake, and from Pog Lake you can canoe to a series of attached lakes, one of which is Whitefish, which is... More
