As soon as I arrived and checked in with the park staff, I turned around and was greeted by a white-tail deer. Right then, I realized this park was something else. I had done a little research before booking. I wanted a park that was...More

If you enjoy a good hike, Frontenac is the place to be. Changing landscape; lakes, rocks, woodland. Wildlife like beavers (we spent at least 10-15 minutes watching one from close distance munching away on lily leaves), birds, chipmunks, snakes, snapper turtles. Make sure to bring...More

Lovely hike, price for entry was hefty but wouldn't be so bad if I had others with me because it was $ per car not person. Will be back with friends next time to check out the other loops! Also was given info on something...More

We spent three days doing day hikes in this park. The best one was the Slide Lake loop - over 20km and rugged. Beautiful views, though. 2nd favorite was the Arkon Loop, and last was the Great Salmon Lake Loop. It would be amazing in...More
