Looks like I can not get a electric site inside the Provincial Park as everything is booked.

Does anyone know of a campground maybe 30 minutes or less outside the provincial park. Looking to book 4 nights in early Aug. Just need a clean campground, W/E sites with showers.

I'm open to any ideas

Thanks everyone

Mike

There’s only a handful of campgrounds within 30 minutes or so of the park. I suggest you have a look at Allstays or some such app or website and go through the reviews.

You might have better luck on the east side than the west too BTW.

Algonquin Park is big. Finding a c.g. 30 minutes outside the park should be no problem if booked early enough. You then have to realize you will have a 15 - 20 minute drive to some of the hiking trails and museums. We have stayed a few times (although not recently) at Algonquin Trails at Dwight which is on the west side of A.P. I think there are probably more options near Whitney - east side of park. I would keep checking provincial park website for cancellations.

Be sure to go to the logging museum when there.

Well I have been checking all this week and I was ready to give up and a opening showed up on Pog Lake for the dates I needed. I just booked the site. Most likely not a premium site from the online pics I was looking at but I tow a 20' TT so it should't be a problem.

Thank You for replying everyone, I'm back to a Happy Camper! [emoticon]

Glad it all worked out for you. Pog Lake is a nice c.g. and is near the half way mark in the park. You might want to check if you can fill your water tanks in the c.g. If not, the water fill and dump stations are just down the highway from the c.g.

Yup, I see fill stations in the campground map, but I will call to make sure before we head there as I hope to just make one trip to the dump station on the way out on Highway 60. Speaking of water, I also plan the bring a empty 5 gallon water fill pail as my fresh water tank in only 22 gallons and I will be cutting it close for the 4 night stay. [emoticon]
