It felt very Canadian to travel and camp here. The entire experience has encouraged us to take a hard look at how we camp. Highly recommend @algonquinoutfitters to get you on your way: they pay extremely close attention to detail, and their advice/information is second to none. Shout out to staff members Sarah and Jess who were both top-notch ???? #richestravel2020

? As usual, we ate like kings while camping. ? Evening one, steak with veggies. This was evening two: more veggies along with chicken and beef kebabs. ? Freakin’ delish! Thank you, @algonquinoutfitters – the entire trip was amazing! #richestravel2020

Algonquin Outfitters is who I trust to help me with my gear when I fly to Canada from Costa Rica, so I can’t bring all of my gear… They’ve been great, would recommend to anyone who sees this for sure.

A huge thank you to Algonquin Outfitters for outfitting our first backcountry trip, but for also giving me the summer of a lifetime. Thanks for the crazy times, friends that turned into family, and the experience. I couldn’t have asked for anything else this summer.

Why has the Tay House Troop 19 been coming to Algonquin Park for decades?

Oct 4, 2018

Dear Rich, Gord, Colin, and the Entire Algonquin Outfitters Team,

On behalf of Tay House Troop 19 and the Highlanders, I want to thank you for all that you and your team did to help make our 2018 Algonquin Canoe Trip a success.  We continue to return to Oxtongue Lake as our start/end point for the Canoe trip – and Greatly appreciate the relationship we have built with AO.  As I stepped out of the car this year, Colin greeted me as if I was just there last week which testament to the welcoming environment AO provides to it’s clients – even if eh was apprehensive of having to bail us out like in 2016!

Our trip started in between the rain clouds -and we greatly appreciate the upgrade t o the tent cabin as well as the use of your propane grill for our soggy first night meal.  The rest of the trip was a great success (compared to the misadventures of 2016) – even if we are threading the needle between storms as we went along.  Our canoes, paddles, PDF’s and accommodations all lived up to your excellent reputation.

Thank you to the entire AO team for all your help and support.  Once again the crew was in awe when Rich, Gord and Colin all knew us by sight – and it is great to be able to speak to the extent of our history working together.  We look forward to our next trip – and cannot wait to get back up to the park for our next adventure!

Out group of 5 went camping at Algonquin over the long weekend of August, and we could not find any canoes north of Barrie. Jenny and Carly helped me along to make reservations with their 2 canoes remaining, and made sure that our group was well taken care of when loading the canoes on my vehicle. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful all the way, accommodated late returns of equipment, and were happy to exchange our equipment for the better ones they had in stock. Definitely coming back and recommending to all my friends!

We rented two Swift Kevlar canoes for a 6 day trip. Good equipment and knowledgeable. Picked up some last minute/forgotten items in the store. Well recommended.

My wife and I rented a deluxe outfitting package for a weekend on Opeongo Lake and the only disappointment we experienced was having to come back! The service was fantastic: We only needed to bring our personal belongings (clothes, binoculars, etc.) and Algonquin Outfitters provided the rest. The gear that they gave us was good quality, well-packed and ready for us when we arrived. The food they provided was organized into meals that were easy to prepare and clean up after. (This is incredibly helpful for backcountry newbies like us.) The staff (Candace, Colin) were friendly and helpful with answering our questions. We took a water taxi up to the North Arm and then paddled back over the next couple days, taking some scenic side trips to Hailstorm Creek and Marmot Lake. If you have never tried backcountry camping, I would strongly recommend using these outfitters! We will definitely be back. I have one other recommendation since some of the negative reviews here seem to be fixated on wind/weather/canoeing-with-toddlers, etc. There are some very short (<5 mins) and helpful how-to videos on youtube that teach canoeing basics such as a J-stroke. If you’ve never tried canoeing, check these out before you paddle! Canoeing is simple and fun, but it can be frustrating if you just push out onto the water (and into the wind) without knowing how to paddle. I know this because I’ve done it!
Admin – Be sure to check out our how to videos, Brian gave us a great tip and we’re going to look into producing more how to videos.
