Bon Echo Provincial Park in Lennox & Addington County has been a favourite destination for visitors for over 50 years. Arguably the most beautiful of Ontario's Provincial Parks, the focal point of Bon Echo is Mazinaw Rock. At 1.5 km (1 mile) long and 100 m (330') high, "the Rock" offers a spectacular setting at this 9,945 hectare (20,494 acre) outdoor oasis.
Bon Echo has 530 campsites that include over 200 electrical-serviced sites, 30 back country canoe and hike-in sites, and 21 roofed accommodation structures (camp cabins, fully-serviced cabins, yurts, exploration tents). There are over 40 km of hiking trails as well as many canoe/kayak opportunities in more than 15 lakes and water bodies. The park also has a rich cultural history and is a sacred place with over 260 Indigenous pictographs within the boundaries.
Your visit to the park isn't complete without a trip to Greystones Store where you can purchase an assortment of souvenirs and essentials. While there you can also purchase tickets to take a guided tour on the Wanderer Boat and get an up-close look at the rock face and pictographs. You can also take a ride on the Mugwump Ferry that takes you to the base of the rock. Hike to the top of the rock and get a whole new perspective of the park from high above.
Bon Echo offers great family programming during the season at their amphitheatre and programs areas, and more than 200,000 visitors each year enjoy a wide array of amenities, including pristine beaches and picnic areas. Canoes, kayaks, and wakeboards are available to rent, and boat launches and docks are available for public use.
Bon Echo's 2018 season on begins on May 11th and is open until October 21st for day-use and overnight visits.
