As soon as I arrived and checked in with the park staff, I turned around and was greeted by a white-tail deer. Right then, I realized this park was something else. I had done a little research before booking. I wanted a park that was...More

We spent three days doing day hikes in this park. The best one was the Slide Lake loop - over 20km and rugged. Beautiful views, though. 2nd favorite was the Arkon Loop, and last was the Great Salmon Lake Loop. It would be amazing in...More

I have been to Frontenac Prov Park a number of times now and I am always impressed by how well taken care of the park is. I have been to other local car camping parks in much worse shape, so considering it is all remote...More

I have driven through Frontenac Provincial Park many times and have hiked Rock Dunder twice. It is a beautiful area, and is a great place to visit for a day trip out of Kingston or on the way to Ottawa. Best accessed off highway 15....More
