Escape into nature at Bon Echo Provincial Park, a testament to Ontario's natural beauty and a prime spot for hiking of all abilities. You'll find several lakes located in the park including the Mazinaw Lake, the second deepest in the province and home to the 100 m (330 ft) high Mazinaw Rock. A lulling tide surrounds the soaring escarpment, featuring over 260 native pictographs and responsible for the loud echo that gives the park its name. Discover the rock and its surroundings through a selection of trails, ranging from 1 km (0.6 mi) to a challenging 17 km (10.6 mi), or unwind on a scheduled lake boat tour and its mighty rock. Numerous camping options are available, as well as canoe rentals. Put Bon Echo Provincial Park and other Cloyne attractions into our Cloyne trip itinerary planning website, and watch your holiday take shape.
Bon Echo Provincial Park reviews

This park is absolutely beautiful. There are sandy breaches along the lake with protected areas to get in and out of kayaks and canoes, there are stunning cliffs on the far side of the lakes, and a variety of camping spots depending what kind of trip you're looking for. We went for a backpacking experience deeper in the park and it felt like we had the park to ourselves, but were still able to get to the beach one day and had a boat tour of the lake showing the historical and beautiful sites in the area. Rock climbers were enjoying the cliffs the whole time we were at the beach and as someone who likes photography it was a fun game trying to find them from the other side of the lake and get pictures.
An absolutely beautiful peace of southern Ontario that any camper new or experienced should visit. Between the trails, the beaches and the history it is a great place to spend some time. Its family friendly with clean facilities, a wood yard, power at some sites and a place to buy ice. I like my camping off the grid in back country so it's not really geared for me but I will definitely come back.
