Here Are The Rules For Ontario Provincial Parks & Campgrounds Under The Stay-At-Home Order

Only certain things are open in Ontario Parks right now.

Toronto Staff Writer

As the weather gets nicer, it's natural for people to flock to Ontario's provincial parks and campgrounds to enjoy nature. However, with the province's stay-at-home order in place until June 2, things are looking a little different.

According to Ontario Parks, there are a variety of things that are currently closed to the public. Campgrounds and backcountry campsites as well as "roofed accommodations" like cabins are all currently shut down.

On top of this, recreational amenities like sports fields, park stores and visitor centres also remain closed.

However, that doesn't mean you can't get outside. Ontario Parks will remain open for outdoor activities such as hiking and walking trails.

Yet, if you choose to visit a location, Ontario Parks is asking that you only go to spots near your home and only visit with members of your household.
