If you love to camp and don't mind roughing it then this is an excellent place to visit especially with a canoe or kayak. The part is a water access only park and the interior lakes and camp sites are only accessible by canoe or...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

We camped on the Massasauga campground this past summer. Fir a provincial park its pretty private. The campsites are well maintained and clean. A must for off grid loving campers. A gps Marine map is a great tool to have on board.

If visiting Parry Sound area probably is because you came to visit Massasauga Provincial Park. If not, this is a "must", spend some of your time there, you won't be disappointed. It's amazing, you will feel the essence of the nature.

Massassauga Park is my favourite backcountry camping spot. It's beautiful and close to home. Entered at Pete's Place and headed for Wreck Island site 325. It's a little tricky to navigate to but plan on at least 2.5 hrs to paddle there. To my surprise...More

A bit stressful when boating if you don't know the lake because there are a lot of shallow areas and a lot of rock sticking out but once you map it, its amazing. We used Pete's marina just to put our boat in the water....More

We get into the park on a regular basis and anchor in to one or another quiet cove. This is some of the prettiest boating in Ontario and because there is no land access, its quiet and not ruined by street lights and the sounds...More

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.
