Algonquin, the first provincial park in Ontario, protects a variety of natural, cultural, and recreational features and values. As one of the largest provincial parks, Algonquin is diverse and offers something for nearly everyone. The essence of Algonquin is in its vast interior of maple hills, rocky ridges, and thousands of lakes offering you the opportunity to camp and head into the backcountry. There is also a second Algonquin – along the 56-kilometre stretch of Highway 60. Here you can enjoy camping at one of twelve developed campgrounds, hike one of 14 trails, or take part in our extensive education programs.
