Ontario provincial parks to remain closed until end of May

The province has announced that all provincial parks and conservation areas will remain closed until at least May 31 in effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The parks were shuttered in mid-March and were originally slated to reopen on April 30. Where possible, park entrances were gated or locked.

“In order to keep Ontarians safe during this COVID-19 outbreak, our government is extending the closure of Ontario’s provincial parks and conservation reserves to May 31, 2020,” the government said in a statement. “This includes car camping, backcountry camping, roofed accommodations, day use opportunities, access points and all public buildings.”

Reservations for arrivals up to, and including, any further closure extension date will be automatically cancelled and reservation holders will receive a full refund with no penalty. We are also providing penalty-free refunds to reservation holders who wish to change or cancel their 2020 camping reservation, regardless of arrival date.
