O ntario Provincial Parks ontarioparks.ca Sparkling waters, rocky shorelines, towering treescapes, and pristine beaches – these are just a few of the ingredients in the recipe for making memories, Ontario Parks style. Charleston Lake Provincial Park 613-659-2065 Natives once sheltered under rock overhangs on the shores of this coldwater lake near Lansdowne, and then wealthy Victorian cottagers summered here. The rugged look of the north blended with the south still draws hikers and canoeists to these scenic shores and winding trails. Frontenac Provincial Park 613-376-3489 Situated on a southern arm of the Canadian Shield north of Kingston, this semi-wilderness park features granite outcrops, vast wetlands and mixed forests, plants and wildlife. Trails wind through rugged terrain as hikers and canoeists head into the interior. Murphy’s Point Provincial Park 613-267-5060 Located on the historic Rideau Waterway, this park near Perth offers tours of a restored mica mine and trails, groomed in winter for cross-country skiing.
