If ‘roughing it’ camping isn’t your style, glamping is a perfect solution. And Ontario’s provincial parks set it up for success as one of the best places in Canada for a glamping experience.

Ontario has so many iconic places to visit. In this guide, we’ll give you a rundown of the best areas and glamping sites. Rest assured, after reading this, you’ll be ready to press book on your dream Ontario glamping getaway.
What is Glamping?
