French River Delta Back Country Camping

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.
