It is somewhat amazing and indicative of Canada's natural beauty that a park like this lies almost forgotten just north of Kingston. We visited in February, and there wasn't quite enough snow for snowshoeing, so we walked the trails, and were met with some stark beauty, naked trees casting shadows in entrancing designs on snowswept forest floors, mixed among imposing... 更多
If you enjoy a good hike, Frontenac is the place to be. Changing landscape; lakes, rocks, woodland. Wildlife like beavers (we spent at least 10-15 minutes watching one from close distance munching away on lily leaves), birds, chipmunks, snakes, snapper turtles. Make sure to bring bug spray as in some parts you may run in to deer flies.
Lovely hike, price for entry was hefty but wouldn't be so bad if I had others with me because it was $ per car not person. Will be back with friends next time to check out the other loops! Also was given info on something called the Frontenac Challenge which looks pretty neat! Involves completing all of the trails in... 更多
I have been to Frontenac Prov Park a number of times now and I am always impressed by how well taken care of the park is. I have been to other local car camping parks in much worse shape, so considering it is all remote sites I am very pleased. Doe Lake is my favorite place so far, but I... 更多
Rock Dunder is defintely worth the hike up to a summit with a view over the river valley and Frontenac Provincial Park. Hard to find the parking place and starting point, but once up the hill, one is rewarded with a scenic look out.
What makes this place work for me is the quiet. Once you park your vehicle, you move under your own power. There are no motorboats, no all-terrain vehicles, no sounds except wildlife and sometimes water and wind. Even people tend to keep their voices down. An hour here can change the rest of the day. The scenery is beautiful to... 更多
This is a beautiful unspoiled park with many scenic lakes. there are many hiking/backpacking trails of varying lengths. The park was very quiet, despite it being a hot sunny day in August. Trails appeared to be well marked from our experience. My only issue, relating to the backcountry country campsites, is that they are clustered into small groups of sites... 更多
For several years Frontenac has been one of our favourite hiking locations in Eastern Ontario. An interior camping park, it has a number of well marked and maintained trails ranging from 3 kilometres to 21 kilometres. While there are no major elevation gains to negotiate, the rugged nature of the park - it is on the Frontenac Axis of the... 更多
Hiked the Little Salmon Lake trail. It was not a very good hike. Most of the time the trail has no view of the lake. Also it has a lot of mud holes that you have to try and navigate around. They have added board walks over some of the muddy spots but there are still many places you will... 更多
