Overnight camping at provincial parks has been off-limits and will remain closed till June 14. The province decided to give people a chance to get outside by offering free day-use permits. The permits will be eligible at 115 provincial parks from Monday to Thursday until September 2.
Jeff Yurek, the Ontario minister of the environment, conservation, and parks considers “getting outdoors and spending time in nature can have many positive benefits on our physical and mental health this summer.”
The permit will give visitors access to the parks to bike, hike, swim, and picnic from 8:00 a.m to 10:00 p.m. Depending on the park, times can be different. Starting June 7 people can book a daily vehicle permit five days prior at 17 of the 115 parks to avoid overcrowding.
Parks included with this permit are Algonquin, Arrowhead, Batchawana Bay, Craigleith, Darlington, Forks of the Credit, Kakabeka Falls, Kettle Lakes, Lake Superior, Long Point, Mono Cliffs, North Beach, Pinery, Presqu’ile, Sandbanks, Sibbald Point, and Turkey Point.
