Dark Sky Camping

These truly untouched, private wilderness camp sites are situated in the fields and meadows of the Dark Sky Preserve in the interior of the park. This area is accessible by private road, only a five minute drive from the main campground, or campers can travel by foot through our trails to access the amenities that are unique to the main campground area. Amenities in the Dark Sky Preserve include picnic tables, cook stands, clean privies, a dishwashing station, and an eco-shower stall. Also located in the Dark Sky Preserve is the Baden Powell grove, and a large picnic shelter. The area boasts the darkest skies in Ontario and is perfect for astronomy. It’s also a great spot to hunt for fossils or spend some time birdwatching, or you can head out to explore our network of hiking trails.
