Driftwood Provincial Park – July 2022 – Part 4

One day we thought we’d try to get into two other non-operational Provincial Parks. One was Bissett Creek Provincial Park and we drove down quite a ways on the road. There are no picnic areas or campgrounds or anything of that nature. It’s literally a road driving through the forest but we always stop and investigate the area. For example, above was a rapids and river area we spotted at the side of the road. It was a really pretty spot.

In case you are wondering what is a Non Operational Provincial Park well I’ll tell ya. It’s land dedicated as a park but there is no camping, no facilities of any kind, no staff, nothing. They were created to protect recreational waterways and nature reserves (which in turn protect rare flora,fauna and other stuff) You take your chances and just go where you want. Sometimes there are trails you can do but other than that, you are on your own. When we go to these type of parks, we rarely, actually generally never, see anyone else.

The other park we went to was Grants Creek Provincial Park . They do have a boat launch at this park but nothing else.

It’s always interesting to go down some of these roads, we never see anyone else and it’s a lot of fun.

So that is about it for Driftwood Provincial Park, my last post on this park. I would go back to this park for sure. I loved our campsite on the river and there was quite a bit to do in the area.

  1. That Grouse is really pretty! The parks look very much like the beautiful places I have seen in Michigan. I didn’t know you have an IG account, I just followed you. 😊

  2. I was wondering what those were; thank you for explaining. 😁 I rather like the idea of being in a secluded area. Quiet nature at its best! I feel privileged, being able to see these quiet natural areas through your posts. Thank you.

  3. Thanks for the explanation – you saved me Googling what “Non Operational Provincial Park” is. I think it would be nice for traveling to these parks in the Summer when there are more people vacationing and parks are more crowded. When you travel in Fall, you don’t have as many people as kids have returned to school. Since you have the amenities from staying in the RV, I say “go for it!” It looks very pretty there.
