One of the largest and most beautiful areas for camping in Canada is the Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve in Ontario. It’s a 70,000 acre wonderland for campers of all ages.
The area has hundreds of lakeside camping sites, a general store, the Haliburton Forest Wolf Centre, and the longest canopy walk in the world.
The reserve consists of dozens of lakes, streams, and creeks, with many of them ideal fishing locations. The wolf centre houses timber wolves that can roam freely on their huge 15-acre parcel of land. The lakes are also ideal for swimming and canoeing in the summer and for skating on in the winter.
Snowmobiling and dog sledding are also popular activities in the winter as well as mountain biking in the summer. You can rent canoes from the forest reserve and they will be waiting at your campsite when you arrive.
The site also has an observatory with telescopes where you can study the stars at night. However, the northern skies are so dark you can enjoy view from your own campsite.
This is one of the most visited camp grounds in Canada, but you’d never know it as the area is massive and your nearest neighbors are quite a distance away.
The Haliburton forest Reserve is an ideal place to enjoy the Canadian wilderness all year round and that’s why so many people take annual camping trips there.
