The Black River Wilderness Park is a great destination to re-invigorate yourself while practicing social distancing.
Located on Rama First Nation near Washago, the Park offers 180 acres of scenic camping experiences along the serene waters of the Black River. Set against a breathtaking backdrop of Canadian Shield granite, towering pines and the flowing Black River, this location is one that can’t be beat.
With its wilderness setting, the Park offers ample opportunities for outdoor recreation. Go hiking along the Park’s 4 kilometres of trails and learn more about the flora used traditionally for medicinal purposes. For those water sports lovers paddle or tube along the river. If fishing is your thing, the river is home to a number of species, including smallmouth bass. For the younger set there is a playground complete with swings.
RV Sites, Glamping & More
Campsites are spaciously distributed throughout the property and many of the tenting sites are situated on four unique islands, some of which are connected to the mainland by bridges. The campground offers first-rate tenting sites and, for those seeking a more unique indigenous experience, authentic tipis are available for overnight stays. For those seeking the glamping experience, Black River Wilderness Park offers four waterfront yurts and six rustic cabins that come with cozy beds, a deck and private outdoor barbeques.
There are also many sites with hookups for RV camping, which are perfect for large or small RVs. Recent campground upgrades include newly renovated washrooms.
For a coffee, pastries or to purchase an array of indigenous products stop in at the gift shop at the Park entrance.
