We enjoyed a two-night trekking experience here for the first time. Very scenic trails; terrain varies from easy to moderately challenging for the trails we covered. The sites at camp cluster #6 are charming and picturesque. All camp sites are well laid-out: fire pit with...More

Frontenac Provincial Park is a stones throw from Kingston and a great drive from Ottawa. Staff are attentive and caring for Mother Nature in a way designed to help the human element impact the natural with little impact. I travelled in with a friend and...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
