Algonquin Park South Gate

A Better way to arrive

Time is valuable and since the journey is the destination we know you’ll love the trip to the South Gate. Some say the roads leading here are more scenic than the rest and we can assure you they are shorter. Don’t expect multi-lane highways or backed up weekend traffic, this is the quiet more serene way to where you want to be.

Skip the traffic on the 400 and drive the beautiful scenic 115. You’ll soon be surrounded by trees, not trucks.

As much as weโ€™d like to think that you might keep this place a secret, we know you wonโ€™t – at least not until you reach cell service again. Tag #algonquinsouth or tell a friend! We welcome you back to Algonquin Parkโ€™s south gate to tread lightly and leave with more memories to last a lifetime.

It's officially Springtime, but still looking like winter at a lot of our parks. Hard to believe that in just over a month or so, this will be green again. ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฒ
