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.

Massassauga Park is my favourite backcountry camping spot. It's beautiful and close to home. Entered at Pete's Place and headed for Wreck Island site 325. It's a little tricky to navigate to but plan on at least 2.5 hrs to paddle there. To my surprise they had a brand new wooden tent deck that made it feel like the cottage... More

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. To transfer all of our things to our campsites (328 and 329) we used the... 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 of cars. There are also lots of camp sites that can be accessed by either... 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, 2 backpacks, 1 tote and 1 small lunch pail. When we arrived we were told... 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 days we had two days of storms and we had to pack up and paddle... More

This is an interesting provincial park- we had lunch and hiked here on a beautiful sunny day! Not sure about the camping -it is very close to the highway!

We have rented a cottage in the area of the park for about 10 years now. We have boated through the many bays and channels of Georgian Bay the park encompasses. We have used the hiking trails at Wreck Island (our fav) Calhoun Lodge and Moose Island. We have checked out the wreck of the Wabano near Wreck Is. as... More

My wife and went camping here for 3 nights mid-July with another couple. It took 2.5 hours to paddle to site 209 from Pete's Place. No portages! We liked Pete's Place much better than the 3-Legged Lake access. There were 3 tent pads and a picnic table. There was also a thunder box which I prefer over an outhouse or... More

I spent four days canoeing this park and can't wait to go again. Sites are well situated and in good condition. Picnic tables and Thunder boxes were available at all sites and in good condition. Tent pads were in good position and condition. The scenery is wonderful and the portages are manageable. A great place to get away from civilization.... More
