The oTENTik tent offers a unique blend of homey comfort and a taste of outdoor adventure. It’s a unique concept for visitors to enjoy camping with the comfort of a bed and a campsite already set up and ready to go. Each unit includes three beds and can accommodate up to six people.
A cross between a tent and a rustic cabin, an oTENTik at Pukaskwa National Park is the perfect way for families, friends and couples of all ages to discover the joys of camping without all the muss and fuss.
