Important notice about campsite reservations – all visitors please read.



There are 184 campsites in North Frontenac Park Lands.  All sites are interspersed on or near the shores and islands of 12 area lakes.  Fewer than 20 sites are nearby designated parking areas accessible by road, the rest are accessible only by water.

Access points on each lake can be reached by road, although most are secondary,  tertiary or crown roads where an off-road capable or other 4-wheel drive vehicle are the better choice of transport—after all this is a backcountry experience!

Camping is permitted at the designated sites only.  To reserve your campsite now and obtain your camping permit click the Book Your Campsite button on the right.

Day Use permits are also available (i.e. for a day of hiking, canoeing, exploring or biking) to North Frontenac Park Lands without an overnight stay at a campsite.  To purchase a Day Use permit click the Book Your Campsite link and select the appropriate Day Use permit option.

Getting There!

Crotch, Big Gull and Kashwakamak lakes are accessible off of primary or secondary township/county roads by most vehicles.

Fortune and Schooner lakes are reached over seasonal crown roads.  While not necessitating rugged off-road capabilities, vehicles with good ground clearance are strongly recommended.

Off-road capable or other 4-wheel drive vehicles are also recommended for access to Mair, Hungry, Redhorse, Govan and Granite lakes.
