Okay lovers of the outdoors, we’re back with some Ontario Parks updates for you. Did you know that Ontario Parks have cozy cottages, cabins, and even yurts you can book? They do, and they are the definition of glamping.
Why not enjoy some crisp fall & wintery nights under the stars in a heated yurt in a provincial park? If this sounds like a dream, Ontario Parks has just released its availability for December, so cozy up and let’s see what is out there!
If you’re looking for cabins, cottages, and yurts online, be sure to select the “Roofed Accommodation” tab on the Ontario Parks booking page. Get ready to be “surrounded by snow, with the sound of nature at your doorstep.”
Probably one of Ontario’s most popular parks, Algonquin has 6 yurts and 4 cabins available. Each yurt has a table, chairs, and two sets of futon bunk beds. The yurt also has electric heat, lighting, and an electrical outlet. And outside, there are picnic tables and a fire pit.
There are openings to book yurts throughout December, until the 23rd. As for the cabins, Sites 37 & 41 are available, but there is limited availability on other cabins.
Another popular spot in Ontario is Arrowhead Provincial Park, which is home to 13 cabins. Here you can expect rustic one-room cabins that sleep five, and include a dining table and chairs. There is a kitchenette with a microwave, mini fridge, coffeemaker and counter space. Outside the cabins there are picnic tables, as well as a gas barbecue.
This park has most of its sites available throughout December.
Heading a bit north to Killarney Provincial Park, where 6 yurts and 2 cabins await. There isn’t much info on the yurts, but the cabins are rustic with wood interior and a screened-in front porch. Cabins can sleep up to five people, and there is a microwave, mini fridge, coffee maker, and kettle. There is also a dining table inside, and a picnic table with a gas barbecue outside. A propane fireplace is also available to keep things extra cozy.
Unlike in November when one of the cabins had no vacancies, the cabins both have availability in December until the 21st. Yurts here are available throughout the month.
