We here at RVHotline love camping, and we know you do too. Ontario has some amazing provincial parks and we've listed our top choices.  Make sure you schedule a vacation to at least one of these beautiful locations.

 

#5 - Algonquin

There isn't a lot to be said about Algonquin Park that hasn't already been written, painted, or waxed about. It's Ontario's first and largest Provincial Park. If you can name an outdoor activity, you can do it here: from fishing, all the way up to expert-led wolf howling. A park that's larger than PEI and a must-visit for any camping enthusiast.

#4 - Silent Lake

This park is a fan-favourite due to how well it is taken care of. Silent Lake does not allow motor boats and has extensive trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. the real draw here is the breathtaking lookout point over Silent lake, which is amazing during sunsets and sunrises.

#3 - SandBanks

A popular summertime weekend destination for many Torontonians, this park features 3 huge beaches, long walking trails with wetlands, and barrier-free access to the beach right from its 500 campsites. The only reason we didn't rank Sandbanks as #1, is that it tends to fill up on the busiest weekends, making it slightly less than ideal for "getting away".

#2 - Chutes

This one is my personal favourite parks in Ontario. Even though it is a bit of a trek away from population centres, you can find this hidden gem in the heart of the billion-year-old Canadian shield. Chutes features a shallow river over smooth stone that is perfect for wading and is very child (and RV!) friendly. Chutes staff have weekly kid's activities as well as a long hiking trail alongside the seven sisters rapids. So highly recommended!

#1 - Killarney

Finally, we come to our #1: this is a park so beautiful, that Group of 7 painters convinced the government of Ontario to adopt it and make it an official park! Located right on Georgian Bay, not enough can be said about this park. Some campsites even have fishing and swimming onsite. Killarney is stunning. It has amazing staff. It has yurts.  You have to go here!
