Family Camping in Ontario

Camping Enjoy a family camping trip in Ontario and make memories to last a lifetime. Our parks offer a full range of facilities, amenities and comforts for families. Pitch a tent or try an all-season yurt — a tent-like structure mounted on platforms. You can also stay at rustic cabins, heritage cottages, or if you're feeling particularly adventurous, learn to build your own snow cave.

Choose from a variety of park settings and on-site activities that your family can enjoy. Experience amazing water activities, Great Lakes coastlines, sand dunes, golden stretches of beach and rich natural history. Autumn is the time for paddling and hiking amidst a colourful canopy of maples, while winter presents cross-country skiing and snowshoeing opportunities to observe nature's tracks in the pristine snow. Many parks offer special events for birders in spring, fall and winter.

Your children can learn in the great outdoors through unique educational activities and programs at more than 40 provincial parks. Take part in guided hikes, stargazing nights, wolf howls or visit on-site museums. Programs are designed to teach nature's language. Relax and reconnect as a family as you learn together.

Visit one of Ontario's outstanding Provincial or National Parks, or explore a nearby Conservations Area. It's sure to be a tradition you will continue and cherish for years to come.
