The wife and I haven't been to Algonquin, even though we have family friends near there who want us to come up. I was wondering about the traffic in that park. It looks like it is situated to get a lot of use from all directions.

Crowded along HWY 60|

There are over 1200 campsites in the eight camping areas along the Highway 60 corridor in the southern part of the park. It's proximity to Toronto, Ottawa, and North Bay make it one of the most popular parks in Canada. July and August are especially busy.

Our regular Algonquin trip is a spring fishing trip the first week of trout season which opens up around the last Saturday in April. That puts our trip either right at the end of April or the first weekend in May. At that time of year there is pretty much no one around during the week but every site on a lake is likely to be full on a weekend.
