Frontenac Park is many things, including an excellent place to try winter camping. The Park is well run with dedicated staff and volunteers who maintain a very good website: www.frontenacpark.ca

Our group of twenty or so signed up for an intro to overnighting in the Park during winter. We got oriented and organized at the Interpretive Center, then hiked for a few hours out to Big Salmon Lake pulling our gear on sleds. We made quinzies and ate hot brown liquids.

Directions:

From anywhere, take Highway 401 until you get to Kingston. Take Exit 613 - Sydenham Road and go north for 20 km. You will see a Provincial Park sign (Blue and white), telling you to turn left on County Road 5.

As you enter the village of Sydenham, watch for the another Park sign on your right (1.9 km). From then on follow the signs. You will go though Sydenham crossing a small bridge over the Millhaven creek and passing a grocery and a beer store on your right as you leave the village. After driving 13 Km on curvy County Road 19, you will see a larger Park sign indicating a right turn and a drive of 2.4 km. This is the Salmon Lake road (just after the Outfitter), it ends at Frontenac Park.
