Your campground reservation will have to wait a week.

That’s because Algonquin Provincial Park has delayed the sale of permits for backcountry and certain campgrounds until May 10th.

Rick Stronks, Assistant Superintendent for the park, says the delay is due to the region’s current weather conditions. “Conditions are variable depending on where you are in the park but many roads are not passable due to snow or mud and we have some areas that have flooding” he says and adds that there’s still a lot of snow in the bush.

Stronks says that they planned on opening up campgrounds and make them available for reservations as of tomorrow, May 3rd. Although he says that some are open, he adds that campgrounds along Highway 60 like Rock Lake, Tea Lake and White Fish are not open.

He adds that the Park is still available to daily users and that it’s business as usual for the rest of their activities. For more information on Algonquin Provincial Park, click here.
