WHAT ARE OUR CAMPSITES LIKE?
Our campsites are wooded sites with a picnic table, fire pit and outhouses. All sites are car accessible. On our property, you'll be camping under a canopy of oak, maple, beach, or white pine trees.
We do NOT offer showers, nor do we have electrical hookups for motor homes & RVs.
WHAT ABOUT FISHING?
Pearkes Lake, sometimes called Elbow Lake, offers anglers Northern Pike, Large & Smallmouth Bass, & Black Crappie. Frontenac Provincial Park offers more of the same fishing opportunities, but they also have lakes with Lake Trout and stocked Brook Trout.
DO YOU SUPPLY FIREWOOD?
We sell bags of firewood for $12 +HST. We ask that campers refrain from taking firewood from our wooded lot.
WHAT ABOUT FIRE BANS?
County fire bans (not Provincial Park) must always be adhered to. Failure to do so can result in significant fines to BOTH the camper AND the landowner. Propane stoves are always allowed during fire bans. Campers must always keep their fires under control, and fires must be completely extinguished before departing.
WHAT ABOUT DRINKING WATER?
Lake water should be boiled for 10 minutes. Well water is available at the Paddling Centre during business hours, although some campers bring enough water for their entire stay.
CAN I BRING MY PET?
Pets are allowed with "common sense criteria" being followed (i.e. Is your pet friendly with other people, especially children? What about other animals? Will you scoop their poop)? Common sense means you must be responsible for your pet at all times. Please mention your pet to us when you reserve your campsite.
WHAT ABOUT ARRIVING LATE?
If you plan on arriving late with a campsite reservation, no worries! Let us know in advance, and we will provide specific instructions for self-serve arrival!
WHAT ABOUT MY GARBAGE?
Like sites within Frontenac Provincial Park, campers are responsible for packing out 'ALL' your garbage and taking it home with them. PLEASE leave our campsites clean!
Campers are responsible for all their actions and safety. This includes product, property damages and personal safety & liability.
HOW CLOSE IS FRONTENAC PROVINCIAL PARK?
It's a 1.5-km (1 minute) drive to Frontenac Park's Trail Centre. It is an additional 4 km drive to the Parks most popular launch at Big Salmon Lake.
CAN I RENT YOUR CANOES OR KAYAKS?
Yes, NEW, quality Kayak & Canoe Rentals are available at our Paddling Centre. Reservations are highly recommended Fridays through Mondays & during long weekends.
CAN WE PORTAGE INTO FRONTENAC PARK FROM YOUR LOCATION?
Yes, there is a "private" 163-metre portage from Pearkes Lake to South Otter Lake in Frontenac Park for those who will respectfully use this private portage.
See you soon.
