Additionally, Poplars and Birches campgrounds will be closed for the remainder of the season. Tamaracks campground is open with parking and access from P2

Emmett Lake Road with access to Halfway Log Dump will also be closed for the remainder of the season. Depending on the construction schedule, Emmett Lake Road may be open on weekends up to November 2nd. Please call the park visitor center at 519-596-2233 for details. Access to our backcountry camping sites will continue to be available via the Crane Lake trail head or P2 at Cyprus Lake.

These improvements are made possible as part of the Federal Infrastructure Investment program and will help to create a safer and more enjoyable experience at the sites.
