Camping & Glamping Favourites from Hot Tub Covers Canada

Algonquin Provincial Park – This one probably comes as no surprise to avid campers, but Algonquin Park remains a top destination.  With a wonderful mix of developed or backcountry sites, coupled with rich cultural history, stunning vistas and abundant birds and wildlife, solo travellers to families will find themselves at peace during a short or long stay.

Banff National Park – The Rocky Mountains await at Canada’s oldest national park.  Banff National Park is home to 13 different campsites, boasting over 2,400 sites during peak season.  From equipped campsites to large group camping, get up and close some of the most incredible views imaginable.

Charleston Lake – If you love to hike or paddle, but still want your vehicle close by, explore the options at Charleston Lake.  Dense forests, swimming holes and rocky ridges await.

Bon Echo – If the 100 metre high Mazinaw Rock featuring Aboriginal pictographs is not enough of a lure, how about interpretive boat tours, short to lengthy hiking trails, and numerous backcountry sites.  For those would prefer more access to comfort facilities or vehicles, check out the yurts, electrical sites, and cabins.  Bon Echo has something for every type of camper or glamper.
