When adventure calls, tell it you want to go backcountry camping in Ontario!

Get out of the city and much closer to nature when you camp at the most exhilarating remote and isolated areas. No plumbing, no electricity, or any other conveniences that the urban life has to offer—it’ll be just you and the great outdoors, forests teeming with wildlife, and too many stars to count. That’s what backcountry campers look forward to.

Here at True North Cannabis Co., we’re breaking down the top five places where you can go backcountry camping in Ontario. On top of that, we’ll let you in on the essential strains to pack as you unleash your inner explorer!

1. Algonquin Provincial Park

When it comes to backcountry camping in Ontario, Algonquin Provincial Park is an obvious choice. With plenty of wildlife, hills, lakes, ponds, and streams, you just never know where your adventures might take you. 

Explore the beauty of this park by canoeing (there is over 2,000 km of routes to explore!) or traversing their backpacking trails. You might even run into some moose, bears, or loons—so make sure to keep a safe distance! 

When it’s time to wrap up the day, you can relax at one of their 1,900 campsites or ranger cabins.
