6 Provincial Parks You Have To Visit In Ontario This Fall

August has 31 days and is just waiting for you to take advantage of them! The final full month of summer is the perfect time for adventures, and the best Ontario provincial parks all make ideal destinations. What's more, Ontario Parks is inviting people to take part in its 30x30 challenge.

The challenge encourages people to spend at least 30 minutes in nature every day during the month of August. 

"Spending time in nature has a significant positive impact on our health and happiness," said Jeff Yurek, Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks, in a press release

To get your dose of nature, we've researched six provincial parks worth visiting this month so you don't have to.

Algonquin Provincial Park

Algonquin was the first provincial park to be established in Ontario and has become a popular spot for nature lovers. The park offers biking, fishing, canoeing, hiking trails, and is a great place to camp.

Entrance to the park is off Highway 60 just east of Huntsville.

Rock Point Provincial Park

Rock Point is home to hiking trails, sandy beaches, campsites, and fishing. But the most fascinating aspect of the park is the exposed fossils of a coral reef dating back more than 350 million years that can be found along the beach.

Entrance to the park is at 215 Niece Road in Dunnville.

Forks of the Credit Provincial Park

Forks of the Credit is part of the Bruce Trail and is perfect for day trips. You can fish, hike, mountain bike, horseback ride, and even have a picnic.

Entrance to the park is 17760 McLaren Road in Caledon.

Killarney Provincial Park

Killarney is at the north end of Georgian Bay. Here, you can go hiking, fishing, canoeing, swimming, and take in the bay's pink granite. They even have yurts to stay in if camping in tents isn't your style!

The park is located at 960 ON-637 in Killarney.

Bon Echo Provincial Park

Bon Echo is home to a 100-metre-high rock that features more than 260 Indigenous pictographs. It also offers short and long trails for hiking and spots for swimming, rock climbing, and camping.

Entrance to the park is located just past Belleville off Highway 41.

Silver Falls Provincial Park

Silver Falls has features that are a result of the last ice age, like Dog Lake. You can also have picnics, lounge on sandy beaches, and get out on hiking and walking trails.

The park is located just north of Thunder Bay.

"From taking a walk to going on a bike ride with your family, there are lots of outdoor activities you can take part in this August," said Yurek. So get outside and get exploring.
