Algonquin changed their policy...makes sense..they were just calling to cancel anyway.

Update to Spring Reservations in Algonquin

Over the past 5 years, inaccessible roads and unsafe ice conditions in many locations have delayed the spring backcountry reservations and the opening of some campground locations within Algonquin. This traditional weekend date has coincided with the spring opening date of the trout fishing season in Algonquin, which has motivated many users to access the backcountry. In response to persistent late winter conditions, Ontario Parks has modified the reservation window for backcountry camping and hiking as well as some campgrounds for spring 2019.

Reservations can be made up to five months in advance for arrival dates starting with the first Friday in May (May 3 in 2019), rather than the fourth Friday in April.
If conditions permit, we will allow access to the backcountry and select campgrounds for April 26th, 2019, on a first come, first-served basis. In some locations, the backcountry may be accessed as a day-use area once trout season opens.

This change to our reservation will impact the following backcountry and campground locations:

Canoeing or backpacking camping, and all Ranger Cabins.
The following northern Access Points: Kiosk, Brent and Achray
The following Highway 60 Corridor Campgrounds: Rock Lake, Tea Lake and Mew Lake (please note that sites 1-33 and the yurts remain reservable year-round in Mew Lake campground).

If you have comments, questions or concerns, you may send them directly to ontarioparks.com/contact

We appreciate your patience and understanding the challenges of a wilderness landscape.
