I start with the fact that we have also very recently stayed at Achray Campground, Eastern Algonquin Park. By comparison, Mew Lake is not the place to camp if you want an 'Algonquin Park' experience. 1. It is too near the busy highway that forms the main transport corridor through the Park. - So it has traffic noise, even at... More

We are frequent visitors to Algonquin. There is no better place for a chance to view wildlife. Trails are fabulous - Beaver Pond Trail is a nice, somewhat challenging in places, trail that offers a fantastic view (near the end) of both ponds and swampy area which are prime moose habitat...although we weren't lucky enough to see one this trip....

We spent the weekend at Mew(77) and had a lovely time. Yes, it is close to the highway but this was not a huge issue unless you want it to be so. Privacy was acceptable and on that note if you pay a visit to Lake of Two Rivers campground you would be amazed at the difference. Mew is far... More

We stayed for a week at Mew Lake camp ground. It was at Kilometre 30 on Highway 60, so quite central to what the park had to offer. We had an enormous site in the electrical campground, very close to the comfort station (site 16) and far enough from the road that it did not bother us. some sites are... More

My significant other and I decided to change up our regular camp routine with a stay in one of the yurts at algonquin park's Mew Lake camp ground. Our decision made for the worst camping experience we have ever had. First off, we were denied the exchange of the wet fire wood that the park sold us for a drier... More

This is a lovely site next to a small lake. It is also right on a fairly busy highway, so choose your pitch with care. There is traffic noise at night. The pitches are generous in size, complete with fire pit and picnic table. This was my first experience of camping in Canada. Unlike British campsites there are no dishwashing... More

We arrived here late friday night after an internet booking (Don't know whey there is an internet booking fee BTW?!) The site is great, we picked a lakefronted pitch which was nice and scenic, but as soon as it's dark, the frogs start. ALL night. ANd they are loud! So we got very little sleep but overall it's a great... More

This January we took our yearly winter trip to Algonquin Park, staying at the Mew Lake campground. The yurts are heated warm structures where one can sleep and eat. You must do your cooking outdoors though! The comfort station is open for hot showers and washrooms. The out houses are open for the adventurous. Check in is a breeze at... More
