The LCC would like to thank our campers for your respect for the natural environment, and for your diligent care in terms of fire safety and “leave no trace” camping.
As of January 1st, 2022, it is illegal in Ontario to place a boat (kayak, canoe, Seadoo) or any vehicle or trailer into any body of water if there are any plants, animals or algae attached to it. Make sure your boat is decontaminated before and after you launch in Lake Clear.
Lake Clear is already infested with Zebra Mussels!
Reserve Your Camping Adventure
PLEASE READ: Click on the FIRST day you are to arrive (check in is at 3pm) and THEN the LAST day when you plan to leave (check out is at 11am). DO NOT CLICK ON EACH DAY – only the first and last day.
Maximum 7 consecutive nights per reservation. Minimum 2 days/1 night.
Your reservation will show half days on check in and check out. This allows someone else to enjoy the island when you've left.
*NOTE: Effective June 2nd, as of June 30, all the remaining dates in the season (Aug 17-Oct 9) will be released for booking, rather than one day at a time.
If you have any questions or concerns before booking, please email email@example.com
