Algonquin Park, Ont. –
“Absolutely beautiful,” Nick Vritsios admires the breathtaking fall colors of Algonquin Park.
This is Mother Nature at her best with 100% fall colors and 10% leaf fall providing incredible photo opportunities.
The Thanksgiving long weekend is typically a busy three days for the park, and Steven Kearney doesn’t anticipate any difference this year.
“We plan to hit our capacity limit a few days before the weekend,” he notes. “We have a lot of international travelers. We have travelers from all over the province as well as the rest of Canada.
Access to the park is by permit only, and this year passes can be purchased online up to five days prior to the visit.
Peter and Joan Preager arrived at Algonquin Park on Wednesday from Wasaga Beach and said they surrendered voluntarily during the week to avoid the weekend crowds.
“We’re retired, so we have a lot of opportunities, and we’re photographers, so we’re here to take a lot of pictures,” adds Peter.
The park has a limit of 1,500 vehicles per day.
Those without a permit can still drive through the park but will not have access to any amenities.
