Lightweight Food-Only Outfitting

For those who have their camping gear, this package provides all the food needed for an Algonquin Park canoe trip. People who have gear for backpacking, for example, can simply book a food-only package and rent a canoe. This food package is also ideal for long canoe trips where food preservation is important, or for those first-time trippers who aren’t sure what food they should pack for an Algonquin Park backcountry canoe trip.

Lightweight Food-Only Outfitting consists of high-quality camping foods packaged to meet the requirements of the Algonquin Park food container rules. In general, the meals will weigh under 500 grams (about one pound) per person per day. All menu plans offer fresh food items for the first few days, varying with your selections and seasonal availability. You’ll find our menu items are easy to prepare, with instructions provided where necessary. Typically, the outfitting menu provides meals from lunch on the first day of your trip to lunch on the last day. Outfitting groups using the tent cabins or campsites at our Oxtongue Lake location for the night preceding their trip can request a continental breakfast on their first morning.

If you need to rent a canoe or some camping gear but don’t need our full equipment package, you can simply add the items you need to your Lightweight Food-Only Outfitting reservation! You can see the options available and their rates by visiting our Rentals section on the website
