May 9, 2011: Just back from a weekend up at the Algonquin Park. The project we started last year is finally complete. All the trails and camp site GPS coordinates are now in the list.

If you are looking for information about Algonquin paddel-in camp site, you get them at the Portage Store or your outfitter. This document includes pictures with GPS information along the highway 60 corridor, the Barron Canyon plus the Hailstorm Creek.

February 11, 2018: I spent the weekend at Mew Lake Campground. It is open in winter and the sites have electrical hook-ups. Firewood can be purchased at the unmanned Mew Lake Campground entrance, bring cash to pay for the wood. A heated comfort station provides drinking water, flush toilets, showers and laundry.

Over the past years, we visited the old railway bridge on Cache Lake. Check out the pictures from 1990 and some more current ones in the Cache Lake.

Needless to say, you never know who crosses your path.

  • The GPS coordinates and the paper maps are not at all compatible. You may know the coordinates, but they don't translate to the Algonquin Canoe Routes Map. Read this short introduction here GPS coordinate and UTM map grid reference system. If you are stuck with a map but no compass, you can always find North as long as you have an analog watch with you. Enter "How can you tell North with an analog watch?" in your search engine and find out how simple this is. You should read this before you get stuck in the forest.

    Google Maps
    When we captured the coordinates with the Garmin nüvi, some of them may not be on the road. Google Maps shows a red marker on the location. The location may be in a place where no road exists, the Hailstorm Creek is one of them.

    If you are not familiar with Google Maps, go to maps.google.com and enter the coordinates (or any address for that matter) in the Search Maps bar. Our example shows the coordinates for the Smoke Lake at N45 31.986 W78 42.139. Google Map accepts the coordinates in all standard formats.

    The distance from the West to the East Gate is about 60 km. This is the main corridor with most of the trails and camp sites. It is over 120 km from the East Gate to Archray / Grand Lake. Allow enough time when you plan your excursion to the Grand Lake.

    Accomodation
    Camping, Yurt or Hotel? Our first visit to Algonquin Park was in 1988. We had a tent and upgraded to a camping trailer in 2016.
    Algonquin Park has a lot to offer, guided tours, wolf howling, hiking, swimming, museums and this is just the beginning. We recommend to reserve your campsite well in advance, it is a very popular spot.

    Huntsville is the closest town to the west.
    You can find several hotels, cottages, private campsites and Bed & Breakfast east and west of the Algonquin Park.
