Algonquin Provincial Park is one of the oldest provincial parks in Canada, established in 1893, and 2950 square miles in area. The park is probably one of the most often visited, as it is easily accessible from Ottawa and Toronto with the Trans-Canada Highway running along the northern border of the park.
For the people who love the fall colours of the maple trees, the autumn season is the best time to visit Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada. The leaves change from shades of green to brilliant yellow, bronze and orange and the park campground at Rock Lake, and other campgrounds and lodges, stay open until the Canadian Thanksgiving. Along Highway 60, the Mew Lake Campground stays open all year.
The weather in late September and early October is usually sunny, although the nights may be cool, but the annoying insects of the hot summer months have gone. The gorgeous display of the autumn maples are reminiscent of the paintings of Canadian artists, Tom Thomson and A Y Jackson, who frequented Algonquin Provincial Park and gave the world such works of art as 'The Pool'(Tom Thomson) and 'The Red Maple' or 'A North Country Lake, Algonquin Park' (A.Y. Jackson). These two artists were a part of the famous Group of Seven
