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

Our campsite on Blackstone Harbour was very private and offered amazing views of the bay. I just enjoyed sitting and admiring the scenery. There were very few motor boats and other canoeists/campers. We appreciated the new bear-proof food storage. But its design was somehow flawed—among...More

We camped on the Massasauga campground this past summer. Fir a provincial park its pretty private. The campsites are well maintained and clean. A must for off grid loving campers. A gps Marine map is a great tool to have on board.

This is another beautiful area in the cottage country of Ontario.It can be the home to the rattle snake by the same name...best not seen on one of your walks.

If visiting Parry Sound area probably is because you came to visit Massasauga Provincial Park. If not, this is a "must", spend some of your time there, you won't be disappointed. It's amazing, you will feel the essence of the nature.

A bit stressful when boating if you don't know the lake because there are a lot of shallow areas and a lot of rock sticking out but once you map it, its amazing. We used Pete's marina just to put our boat in the water....More

We get into the park on a regular basis and anchor in to one or another quiet cove. This is some of the prettiest boating in Ontario and because there is no land access, its quiet and not ruined by street lights and the sounds...More

Brad and I camped for 3 days / 2 nights at Pete's Point Access, spot 523 and 520. We knew it would be a tough paddle to our campsite but had no idea it'd be like this. We were carrying Brad's fishing kayak, 1 canoe,...More

In June/July, 2016 we spent almost 2 weeks camping along Blackstone Harbour. The weather was almost perfect—very hot & dry, mostly sunny and even though the fire ban was in effect in the Parry Sound area, the park still allowed campfires. Unfortunately, our final 2...More

Hi Dustin, 1. Pack light. Only what you can carry; literally. You will be carrying your canoe over many beaver dams if you're portaging to Little Blackstone Lake. Example: dehydrated food; a good camp stove (WhisperLite... More
