Mississagi Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada: Here be dragons

My navigation system expressed some concern about Mississagi. On the way to our campsite it warned me that we were entering an area of “incomplete map data,” and told me to “proceed with caution.” In my perfect world, it would have said, “here be dragons.” I was so pleased–this was the sort of camping I feared I’d lost when I bought a travel trailer.

My last stop was at Grundy Lake Provincial Park—a large professionally run park with programing and staff in pressed uniforms. A tousled teenager in a red T-shirt staffed the gate at Mississagi. The park only has 60 campsites, and I saw a total of six people during my stay. There was no cell service.

This place is perfect, and I’ll be back.

  1. Camped at Mississagi a few years ago, had a great weekend with the family. Saw lots of wildlife, the swimming was great. Lies of hiking and places for the kids to explore.
