Bonnechere Provincial Park – July 2022, Part 3

There is quite a lot to do in the area of Bonnechere Provincial Park. You can go to Basin Lake Access Point #19 is just outside Bonnechere Park, easy to get to and is actually part of Algonquin Park. To get there, leave the Park and turn right on to the highway. Turn onto Turners Road/Basin Lake road, traveling on pavement, then gravel. You will spot the cabin (above photo), it’s the oldest building in Algonquin Park. You can take a horrible dirt road just by the cabin to take you down to the Access point. There are two campsites on the shore if you need them. It’s a nice area. There are a lot of trails along this road, called the Walks of the Little Bonnechere River.

If you continue, the Walks of the Little Bonnechere are along this road, different sites and distances.

We decided to do a hike to High Falls while we were in this area. Big Mistake! lol

The mosquitoes were unbelieveable and what we thought was a 1 km hike turned out to be about 5 kms total. Which isn’t far except for the bugs, they were horrible so we pulled out our bug hats and bugs shirts just to survive lol.

We ended up driving down to the very end of the road, not sure how far it was. We stopped here and there in different spots to take photos.

There is quite a lot to do in this area, more Blogs to follow. If you get the chance to camp at Bonnechere Provincial Park, you won’t be disappointed.

  1. You two are like me and counting the days until it is beautiful and lush again, but not looking forward to the bugs! Although today was cold (28F) (-2C) when I left, I was bundled up so it wasn’t too bad. The sun was out at least. I have heard that our mild Winter we’ve had thus far (except for the brutal Bomb Cyclone weather on Christmas weekend) is not going to kill off the ticks, so more worries. An expert said even that subzero weather was not long enough to zap ’em. What a shame you have to dress like in a jungle for those pesky mosquitoes. Cute little otter!

    1. Yes when it’s hot out and you have to have full riot gear on because of the ticks it can be uncomfortable! Something needs to kill those ticks off, people can get so sick from them and it can change your life. It’s super cold here today, I was thinking to go out for a walk but changed my mind, it’s -14 Celsius here.

      1. You’re much colder than we are but this weekend’s mornings were pretty frosty. The ticks are worrisome and we get the bad mosquitoes with the West Nile virus and Equine Encephalitis. Not great for us outdoorsy types (and you two are more outdoorsy than me).
