My husband and I have canoed and camped in this park for many years and in every season except winter. The campsites are well-maintained, and each has a picnic table and personal outhouse with a view. Many of the campsites are far enough away from...More

We spent five magical days on a canoe trip in the Massasauga Provincial Park. We were travelling as five adults, six children under ten, and one dog. We hired three canoes, in which we carried not just ourselves but everything we needed for our trip...More

Myself and five friends canoed in to Massasauga for 4 nights in August. The trip was relaxing; we were only 12 km and two portages from the Three Legged Lake put-in location, and had no trouble bringing amenities. Our site (#200) was fairly isolated at...More

Went on a three day canoe trip from the three-legged access point. It is a beautiful park. We stayed on two different lakes. The campsite on Speyer was fairly low and poorly laid-out. Our other campsite was excellent. Both had thunder-boxes and good fire pits....More

I use the park often, using the Three-legged Lake access point. It's an accessible 'semi-wilderness' park perfect for a light/moderate canoe trip. There are two sides to the park - Georgian Bay is mostly the domain of motorboats. On the other hand, the interior lakes...More

Our campsite on Blackstone Harbour was very private and offered amazing views of the bay. I just enjoyed sitting and admiring the scenery. There were very few motor boats and other canoeists/campers. We appreciated the new bear-proof food storage. But its design was somehow flawed—among...More

None of the sites we stayed at (or saw) had wooden decks; each just had a ‘thunder box’ and a designated place for a fire.

yes, just interior camping. many sites are canoe access only. Georgian Bay sites are accessible by powerboat also. Nearby Ostler Lake is car access camp sites.
