Algonquin Campsite Reviews
This is an archive of the campsites I have either stayed on or explored in my travels through the park. Hopefully these reviews will help you in determining whether you want to include a particular site in your own planning, or whether you’d be better off setting up camp in a garbage dump full of toxic waste and broken dreams (Hi Furrow Lake!).
I’ve blatantly stolen this idea from the Algonquin Adventures Portage and Campsite Inventory and I highly recommend checking that site out as part of any planning process for visiting the Park. The information there is fantastic and the people are an incredible resource of knowledge and advice.
You’ll note I’ve got site numbers attached to each site. These aren’t official park site numbers, in fact, there are no numbers for interior sites (and hopefully never will be). When you reserve a lake all you are guaranteeing yourself is a spot on that lake. Sites are first come first serve. I’ve edited a copy of Jeff’s Map* to add numbers to each site just for ease of figuring out which one I’m talking about in each report. From time to time you may notice site numbers without links. That means I’ve visited the site, but haven’t got the report up yet. It’ll be there soon!
*Just a note. Most of my trip reports reference Jeff’s Maps Algonquin Map and, in many cases, actually link to the website. As great as this map has been, if you do not already own one, do not order one from the website. Jeff’s Maps has undergone a change in ownership in the past few years and the new owner is not honoring orders. If you order a map it is more likely than not that you will not receive it.
