Find out what camping in canada's wilderness is all about

Have you ever gone camping in Canada? If not this is your guide!

Pack up the kids and the gear, hop in the RV and get on the road as you embark on a great family camping expedition in Ontario's Sunset Country! With 70,000 freshwater lakes spread across thousands of square kilometers of the boreal forest, Sunset Country is the "promised land" for families who love the outdoors. Whether you plan to visit one of our many Provincial Parks or you're thinking of staying at a privately run campground, the adventures that you and your kids' encounter will be endless.

Visit a Local Festival or Event

While camping, why not take in a local summer festival. The choices during the summer are many and include the Red Lake Norseman Festival, the Dryden Moosefest, the Blueberry Festival in Sioux Lookout or Harbourfest in Kenora. While in Kenora, make sure you see incredible Lake of the Woods aboard the cruise ship the MS Kenora. This two-hour cruise offers you great photo opportunities for bald eagles and pelicans as well as animals along the shoreline such as deer and black bear.
