It is somewhat amazing and indicative of Canada's natural beauty that a park like this lies almost forgotten just north of Kingston. We visited in February, and there wasn't quite enough snow for snowshoeing, so we walked the trails, and were met with some stark beauty, naked trees casting shadows in entrancing designs on snowswept forest floors, mixed among imposing...

If you enjoy a good hike, Frontenac is the place to be. Changing landscape; lakes, rocks, woodland. Wildlife like beavers (we spent at least 10-15 minutes watching one from close distance munching away on lily leaves), birds, chipmunks, snakes, snapper turtles. Make sure to bring bug spray as in some parts you may run in to deer flies.

Lovely hike, price for entry was hefty but wouldn't be so bad if I had others with me because it was $ per car not person. Will be back with friends next time to check out the other loops! Also was given info on something called the Frontenac Challenge which looks pretty neat! Involves completing all of the trails in... More

We spent three days doing day hikes in this park. The best one was the Slide Lake loop - over 20km and rugged. Beautiful views, though. 2nd favorite was the Arkon Loop, and last was the Great Salmon Lake Loop. It would be amazing in fall.

I have been to Frontenac Prov Park a number of times now and I am always impressed by how well taken care of the park is. I have been to other local car camping parks in much worse shape, so considering it is all remote sites I am very pleased. Doe Lake is my favorite place so far, but I... More

I have driven through Frontenac Provincial Park many times and have hiked Rock Dunder twice. It is a beautiful area, and is a great place to visit for a day trip out of Kingston or on the way to Ottawa. Best accessed off highway 15. After hiking, I would recommend visiting Hotel Kenny and Jones Falls Locks (5 minutes from... More

We visited this place for a day trip in fall 2015 to do some trekking and see some fall colours. We really enjoyed the trek which took over 4 to 5 hours or so. The fall colours were quite decent - we might have been a little later in the fall season so that could be the reason as well.... More

Rock Dunder is defintely worth the hike up to a summit with a view over the river valley and Frontenac Provincial Park. Hard to find the parking place and starting point, but once up the hill, one is rewarded with a scenic look out.

What makes this place work for me is the quiet. Once you park your vehicle, you move under your own power. There are no motorboats, no all-terrain vehicles, no sounds except wildlife and sometimes water and wind. Even people tend to keep their voices down. An hour here can change the rest of the day. The scenery is beautiful to... More
