Bonnechere Provincial Park can be found at the northwest corner of Round Lake, approximately 30 minutes southwest from Pembroke; on a map, you can locate Bonnechere near the eastern portion of Algonquin Park. Paddlers know Bonnechere for the Little Bonnechere River that flows into Round Lake and makes an excellent canoe trip as you wind through the oxbow bends and view the park’s wildlife.
The park features a wide stretch of sandy beach and a boardwalk along the shoreline. Campers can choose from 128 campsites and cabins to base their stay. In the park, there are many hiking trails and abandoned settlement homesteads to explore. Hike to the top of Egg Rock for a sweeping view of the park, then venture to High Falls and watch the cool waters splash and tumble over the fall’s rocks.
