I love Algonquin - had my Burro there in August and had a great time photographing the bears in the blueberry field. (reminds me, I need to do a post about the Burro's adventures in canada)

We have so many memories from camping in Algonquin, right back as far as the 50's when the bears would mozzy through the camp grounds checking out the garbage pails at each site. It wasn't long after that they built centralized garbage bins. Lake of Two Rivers has some great sites.

I guess when the campers stop filling up the sites only then will they realize they priced themselves out of the running.

While I realize things tend to be a little pricier in Canada than in the states, that's double the cost of camping at public campgrounds here in the north east. Any idea why? Raz

It is a bit of an ouch-level price structure...but my only real complaint about the campgrounds in Algonquin (and maybe this is the case at other provincial park campgrounds?) is that the section divisions are non-electric which is also the quiet zone, and electric which is also the non-quiet zone.

WHY can't I have quiet AND electricity?? Just because I want to plug in does not mean I also want to listen to my camp neighbors music? Will never understand this.

I also camped at Algonquin as a child. It was the default place to go, other then the cottage. I remember that the garbage cans had a face. When you pulled the arm, they would open.

About 4 years ago give or take, the provincial government stopped subsidizing the provincial parks. They had to become self supporting, so they upped the rates. Camping in the interior which is only accessible by hiking or on the water is now about $12. a person. I have been going there since the 70's and love the place, but it is getting pretty expensive now.
