Mew Lake Campground is, as far as I know, the only winter campground at Algonquin. The facilities are excellent an include heated washrooms, hot showers, and washers and dryers. The laundry room is also an excellent source for warm water when your bottled water is all frozen in the morning. The staff keep the lots plowed and the facilities clean...

We came here to take our 7 year old skating. She is learning to skate and this was a great place to practice. Would love to come back here and try winter camping. There were hockey nets and the park staff were helpful

Mew lake offers section w/o pets and radios with most of the sites right on the lake's shore. All these are nice and quiet with enough space between sites to have a feeling of privacy. The only drawback is that the common rooms (with showers) are quite far and you'll probably end up driving your car to get into shower...

We stayed here during the winter months while doing some backpacking(day trips). Location is perfect and the wolves at night howling put us to sleep every night. The sites are spacious and some right on the water. You can also pick up the side trail of the Track and Tower trail that leads through the old airfield. If you are...

While the campground is located right off of Hwy 60, the noise of the highway wasn't that noticeable at our site (23). We had easy access to the bike trail - which was fantastic, being able to ride for 12 km on an old railway line to a variety of lakes set further back from the highway. We liked the...

The campsites are really nice and big with privacy. We use tents and were in #113 in the no dog/no radio area. The lake is a bit small for canoeing but it does have a nice beach. There are lots of trails and a store nearby. I would do this again!

Good and bad here.... We actually stayed in a yurt. Yurt #36. We went in May, so we were expecting some cooler weather and thought the yurt would be perfect. It has heat, etc. Well, the heater was not working properly. The first night was very chilly... we were zipped in our sleeping bags right around our heads. We had...

We camped here from May 8 to 12, 2016. We were on site 51 with a 32 ft. fifth wheel. The site was beautiful, right on the lake. Easy to back into, and fairly level. The weather was nice, but still pretty cold. We had to wear winter coats mornings and evenings. There were patches of snow still everywhere, and...
