Haliburton Forest has developed an extensive network of semi-wilderness campsites on 17 of its 50 lakes. While a majority of sites are leased on an annual basis, a number of designated sites have been reserved for short term use.
The term “semi-wilderness” in the classification of these campsites indicates their unique nature. All sites are spacious and accessible throughout the summer by car. They are situated directly on a lakeshore, well spaced and private, without back lots, and are often out of sight from any neighbour. Sites are equipped with a picnic table and outhouse, but no hook-ups or other services. This concept represents a successful blend of wilderness camping (Algonquin Park style) and camping as it commonly occurs on organized campgrounds.
Camping is only one of the exciting outdoor activities offered at Haliburton Forest. Some of the other activities include: mountain biking, fishing, canoeing, hiking, birding, orienteering, outdoor education, astronomy and much more. Information material and maps for specific activities are available upon request.
