Travel where the Voyageurs travelled, Stand where they stood, See what they saw! In the French River Provincial Park

The French River Provincial Park offers a backcountry experience like no other! Get the best of both worlds; paddle the historic river-style waters of the French River to the grand and majestic views of the Georgian Bay.   With no two campsites being alike and no pressure to reserve a site ahead of time, the FRPP allows enthusiasts freedom to meander, roam and explore the mystique that make up the Delta at their own pace. Launch your own canoe/kayak, motorized boat or reserve one of our Hartley Bay canoe or kayak rentals in advance, get a camping permit and a French River Provincial Park map once you arrive and you are set to travel among the waterways of the French River Provincial Park.
