Kawartha Highlands Signature Site is the largest park in southern Ontario after Algonquin Provincial Park.
It is a special place with opportunities to experience the outdoors ranging from backcountry canoeing and camping to a short hike. Before visiting please be aware that the access points at Kawartha have limited facilities and parking capacity.
We ask that all visitors be responsible and prepared for whatever activity you plan on participating in at the park. Please stick to designated trails and portages, and be respectful of other park visitors and the natural environment at all times.
Always remember around water – use life-jackets, plan your trip and be prepared for uneven backcountry terrain.
Kawartha Highlands is open all year long, for backcountry adventures in any season. If you are planning on coming to the park, consider contacting park staff so they can help you make the most of your visit.
