Land’escapes is your one stop for all things outdoor adventure!


Disconnect from the modern world, immerse yourself in the beauty of the Ontario backcountry. Leave your car behind and hike (and possibly paddle) to your campsite, set on private lakes with stunning vistas, and the opportunity to experience the wild in its purest form.

You’ll rely on your outdoor skills to set up camp, purify water, and cook your meals. It’s an adventure that demands preparation, self-reliance, and a deep appreciation for the untamed beauty of the great outdoors.

Whether you’re an experienced adventurer looking to explore as much of the park as possible, or a novice seeking to experience backcountry for the first time, we have a trip that’s perfect for you.


Paddle your way through the lakes and wetlands of the park to get up close looks at wildlife and immerse yourself in nature.

With beautiful custom Nova Craft canoes placed on the lake shores throughout the park, you can explore both by foot and by boat. If you come across a beautiful lake mid-hike, grab a canoe and go for a tour!


Embark on an unforgettable hiking adventure. Our extensive trail network of over 150km winds through diverse landscapes, from lush forests to rugged terrain to open meadows, offering something for every level of hiker.

Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, and discover hidden gems along the way (and tell us about them because we may not have even found out about them yet!). You are sure to find tracks or scat along the way and likely some wildlife sightings too. Whether you seek a peaceful stroll or a challenging trek, the park await your exploration on foot.


Want to get bored of catching 3lb bass? Land’escapes is the place for you! The many private lakes have been stocked with bass, offering a mix of lakes with fewer, larger bass, and Jocko Lake that notably got 2 guys nearly 150 bass in an afternoon. Shore lunch has never been easier!

With canoes on the shores of most lakes, access is easy – just hike in, set up camp, and spend the afternoon and evening fishing.


Explore the rugged terrain and natural beauty of the Land’escapes trails by bike! There’s a diverse experience for riders of all levels. With a mix of rocky terrain, winding singletrack, wide tracks and scenic trails, riders can explore everything from rugged backcountry to tranquil lakes.

Planning a longer bike packing trip? The Central Ontario Loop Trail (COLT) trail runs right through Land’escapes so you can stop over for a night or two and camp right on the lake with canoes waiting for you there.


A remote crag overlooking beautiful blue seas lake is good old Ontario adventure climbing. The remote granite wall has potential for a few weekends worth of single pitch 20 meter + routes.

The climbing is moderate and having had no traffic requires a hardy soul willing to pull on the occasional lichen covered rock, and tiptoe through gnarly ancient cedars on exposed ledges. There are however fun moves on solid, steep rock, and a few mellower slab lines.

Climb a few routes with relatively simple top rope set up or go for the first ground up ascent of 5.10+ routes that could be led on gear. Easier climbing exists but would be run out. The approach is long, the view incredible. A fun climbing challenge.
