Rushing river campground is an entrance way to many kilometres of open water routes. Hundreds of islands provide unlimited backcountry camping options. The campground itself offers a variety of sites from RV to group use to waterfront and private! So book in advance or head out to the backcountry. Rental canoes/kayaks available a short drive away.

Rushing River has so much to offer...if, you are visiting only for a day or decide you would like to camp. You are in the right place. Many playgrounds, biking roads, a dip at the beach and much more,...... For outdoor lover.

We have been going to Rushing River Prov Park for over forty years! It is absolutely beautiful winter and summer. We used to cross country ski there in winter and kids enjoyed sliding. We camped there every summer when our children were young but just go for picnics and a swim now. I am not sure what the camping rates... More

We take this 4 km hike a couple times a year. Stunning scenery. It can be slippery and muddy if it has been raining so where good shoes. A fair bit of climbing and descending on natural as well as built walkways.

We hiked the Granite Knoll trail and greatly enjoyed the changing landscape. The park was very quite in November.

The main park was closed for winter but the picnic area and a walking trail were open. We didnt go in too far but there were a couple of picnic spots built. One of them has a built in barbecue where some families were cooking and eating. Benches to sit, pathway to walk and some bridges to cross the rushing... More

On entering the park, even for day use you must purchase and display a vehicle pass. The North side was closed, so we drove around the south side checking out the campground for future visits. Services, where available are minimal and some roads are not appropriate for big rigs. We did enjoy a pleasant walk around the beach and then... More

Rushing River Provincial Park has been my favourite camping park for over 50 years. There are numerous swimming and hiking areas . My favourite swimming area is the main beach area where people can swim out to a large rocky area. Across the highway is a walkway along the river which eventually crosses the river with a spectacular bridge that... More

Definitely a great and popular camping location, if you like swimming, hiking, or just relaxing! Rushing River is linked with Dogtooth Lake which is fabulous for boating and skiing, but, you need a map to know where the rocks are. Some rocks are marked but others are not! Great place to bring the family!
