ROUTE QUESTIONNAIRE - Canoe Lake

Thanks for your reservation for our CUSTOM GUIDED outfitting package!

Part of the service provided by Algonquin Outfitters with these packages is that we will book camping permits in Algonquin Provincial Park on your behalf. In order to do this, a reservation fee must be paid to Ontario Parks. With your permission, we will use your credit card to make the booking for your trip. A reservation fee of $11 is paid when booking the permits online, along with full payment of the backcountry camping fees.

The total fee payable at the time of reservation would be $11 plus the related camping permit fees. The total will vary, depending on the number of people in the group, their ages and nights of camping. Current fees per night, tax included, are $12.43 for adults (18+) and $5.65 for youth (ages 6-17). If the group size changes after the camping permits are booked, adjustments can be made at the park permit office when you arrive.  

For example, a family of two adults and two youth, going on a three-day, two-night trip, would pay the following:

  • Reservation fee: $11
  • Adult camping permits: 2 people X 2 nights X $12.43 = $49.72
  • Youth camping permits: 2 people X 2 nights X $5.65 = $22.60

Total paid upon reservation: $83.32
