Camping, with the appropriate permit, is available from May 1st to October 31st. 

The North Frontenac Park Lands offer the ultimate backcountry camping experience. With 184 campsites interspersed around 12 pristine lakes, you will enjoy the scenic tranquility of the unique landscapes of the Madawaska Highlands.

Access points on each lake can be reached by road, although an off-road capable, or other 4-wheel drive vehicle, is the recommended choice of transport. Most campsites are accessible only by water from these access points.

The campsites are ideally suited for setting up a base camp from which to enjoy a variety of outdoor recreational activities. Whichever activities you pursue, while you are taking in the natural beauty of your surroundings, we ask all visitors to respect the basic rules of “backcountry etiquette” to minimize the impact on the local vegetation and wildlife.

To help make your backcountry camping experience as pleasurable as possible, here are a few handy links to help with the planning:

  • Camping checklist – click here for a list of items you won’t want to forget, you’ll be in the backcountry, so you will only have what you take with you! If you do forget an item stop in at one of the local businesses on your way to your campsite. This checklist will help you to remember to bring the basics.

  • Weather Forecast – click here to get up to the minute weather information for current conditions and short-term and long-term weather forecasts – complements of The Weather Network.

  • Book Your Campsite – Unlike most other park lands or campgrounds, you can choose among the 12 to find the environment that best suits the type of activities you’ll be doing, and then to reserve the specific site where you’ll be pitching your tent. Click here to find your ideal campsite.
