Bon Echo Provincial Park | Great Lakes Guide

Bon Echo Provincial Park offers many remarkable cultural and natural features. There are several lakes in the park, including the second deepest lake in Ontario: Mazinaw Lake. This lake features an impressive 100m high cliff called the Mazinaw Rock. It rises out of the water and is covered with over 260 Indigenous pictographs; a designated National Historic Site of Canada. This park has something for everyone. The camping experience ranges from comfortable, managed settings, to spectacular backcountry camping by way of canoe-in and hike-in routes. More leisurely activities include interpretive boat tours and visiting the 'Friends of Bon Echo Art Exhibition and Sale'. Swimming is encouraged at the three natural sand beaches. This park is a great place to explore by hiking and canoeing. The many trails will take you through the rugged landscape of the Canadian Shield, past hardwood forests, cedar lowlands, and a beaver swamp. The canoe routes range from day tripping, to a 5 day route complete with 17 portages, called the Mississippi River Canoe Route. This Provincial Park has activities for everyone to enjoy!

I have a trailer on the water every weekend in the summer. There are lots of great memories made there.
