We can easily get 75% by late August based on availability of vaccine. The only hold up will be peoples willingness to roll their sleeves up. You should be fine for fall.

Sounds like a great trip. Amazing that you saw so few people, just proves the adage of putting a few portages behind you and the crowds will always disperse. Thanks for sharing.

That’s great news. I was not confident they would ever reopen.

Thanks again to Ontario parks for their diligence in bringing this valuable tool for all of us to use.

Not at all parks. Reservations for day use at

Algonquin
• Arrowhead
• Batchawana Bay
• Craigleith
• Darlington
• Forks of the Credit
• Kakabeka Falls
• Kettle Lakes
• Lake Superior
• Long Point
• Mono Cliffs
• North Beach
• Pinery
• Presqu’ile
• Sandbanks
• Sibbald Point
• Turkey point

Even then you can still show up and get in IF it’s not full. So you can check the day before or even day of and then go. They just don’t want people to drive out only to get turned away.

I think that’s a pretty reasonable change. I don’t know where the name of the campground and lake came from, possibly from the slang for actual racoons, but I know for sure what the pejorative use of the word is.

I listened to the press conference today and they said nothing about it. Maybe the announcement will be tomorrow.

For a bit of perspective the UK has 75% of the population with first shot and 49% with 2 shots and the B.1.617.2 variant has resulted in them seeing a rise of 20% in cases over the past week and a large number of these cases are attributed to younger people with a first shot. We still have a ways to go unfortunately.

I think you can count on the step 1,2,3 with 21 day intervals to stick. It’s basically the plan the UK used and they have just entered step 3 without any major setbacks. They said approx June 14 for step 1. It seems as though they meant it.
