As of today, roofed accommodations and campsites at Ontario Parks will be closed while the provincial stay at home order is in effect.
These will include things like cabins, yurts and cottages operating on park grounds. However, Ontario Parks will remain open for day-use recreation. While it is important to get outside to stay healthy, they are asking people to stay close to their homes and travel to parks only around their area.
Things like equipment rentals are on hold, and park stores and visitor centers are closed to the public. They say it is important to come to the park with all of your equipment and supplies you will need, including things like hand sanitizer.
