We spent five magical days on a canoe trip in the Massasauga Provincial Park. We were travelling as five adults, six children under ten, and one dog. We hired three canoes, in which we carried not just ourselves but everything we needed for our trip...More

Myself and five friends canoed in to Massasauga for 4 nights in August. The trip was relaxing; we were only 12 km and two portages from the Three Legged Lake put-in location, and had no trouble bringing amenities. Our site (#200) was fairly isolated at...More

Went on a three day canoe trip from the three-legged access point. It is a beautiful park. We stayed on two different lakes. The campsite on Speyer was fairly low and poorly laid-out. Our other campsite was excellent. Both had thunder-boxes and good fire pits....More

If you love to camp and don't mind roughing it then this is an excellent place to visit especially with a canoe or kayak. The part is a water access only park and the interior lakes and camp sites are only accessible by canoe or...More

I use the park often, using the Three-legged Lake access point. It's an accessible 'semi-wilderness' park perfect for a light/moderate canoe trip. There are two sides to the park - Georgian Bay is mostly the domain of motorboats. On the other hand, the interior lakes...More

None of the sites we stayed at (or saw) had wooden decks; each just had a ‘thunder box’ and a designated place for a fire.
