Quetico Provincial Park New Camping Pods Now Open at Quetico Provincial Park

Quetico Provincial Park has introduced a new accommodation option for visitors seeking a unique camping experience with camping pods, according to a press release. These pods, a fresh addition to the park’s array of roofed accommodations, offer a blend of comfort and the great outdoors, marking a distinct shift from traditional tent camping.

Located in the Chippewa Campground within the larger Dawson Trail Campground off Highway 11, these pods are now available for reservation year-round as Camping Pods 1 & 2.

Crafted in Ontario, the design of these pods supports local wood manufacturers, showcasing a commitment to regional economic support. The pods are designed to resemble caravans or dens, providing a cozy and inviting space for park visitors. This initiative not only enhances the camping experience but also promotes Ontario’s craftsmanship.

The interior of each pod is equipped with a queen-over-queen bunk bed, a table, a bench, electric power, including lights and outlets, electric baseboard heat, a rear window, and a lockable glass front door with a curtain. These features ensure a comfortable stay, regardless of the season. Outside, visitors can enjoy amenities such as a covered wooden porch, a barbecue, a picnic table, and a campfire pit, enhancing the outdoor experience.

Accommodating up to four people, the rental of a pod includes parking for one vehicle. However, guests are reminded to bring essentials such as food, drinking water (especially in the off-season), cooking utensils, and bedding, as the pods do not have running water or washroom facilities. An outhouse toilet is located nearby, and shower facilities are accessible during the summer months.

For those planning a visit, the park’s regulations include a two-night minimum stay, a three-night minimum on long weekends, and prohibitions on smoking, open flames inside the pods, and pets.

Quetico Provincial Park offers a range of activities suitable for all seasons. From cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter to fishing, canoeing, and hiking in the warmer months, there’s no shortage of ways to explore the park’s natural beauty. The park also provides equipment rentals during the summer, including canoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards, along with all necessary safety gear.

The park’s discovery programs, available in July and August, along with the Dawson Trail Heritage Pavillion Visitor Centre, open from May to mid-October, offer educational and recreational opportunities for visitors of all ages. Reservations for the camping pods can be made online, or click here.
