  2. Hi Umo,

    All I can say is that I really enjoyed reading your blog. I am a bit of camping lover too and I recently launched my website. It is a camping business directory where campers could freely post their reviews and share their experiences.

    Please take look when you get a chance and let me know what you think.

  4. Great blog! Wondering if you had any recommendations of decent backcountry camping areas that are fairly accessible by car within 6 hours of toronto.
    Thanks!

    1. Thanks a lot, Jim! When you say fairly accessible by car, I take it to mean that there isn't too much canoeing. In that case, my top picks within 6 hrs of Toronto are:

      -Joeperry in Bon Echo
      -High Dump or Stormhaven in Bruce Peninsula
      -George Lake in Killarney
      -Barron Canyon or Canisbay in Algonquin
      -Mississagi Interior (not sure if its still accessible)
      -Lac Edouard in La Mauricie (stretching the 6 hr limit there, but you'll probably have it all to yourself)

      Have a great trip!

    1. Thanks a lot, ok korea! I'm really glad to hear that you enjoyed your trip to Joeperry - it's the first place I ever canoe-camped and it's great to hear that it still provides a memorable experience 15 years later.

  8. Hey man, thanks for sharing such a useful information about Ontario camping.
    My name is Vitaliy, I'm from Russia. I camped a lot at my home country and I would like to keep my lovely hobby here. I have a question, which is very tricky to me... Is it allowed to use dead trees or track down some wood surround on the backcountry sites for a fire? I believe it's not allowed on regular campsites and you have to buy some, but I'm not sure about backcountry and Canoe-in sites...
    Please advise. Thank you!
