Toronto’s Glen Rouge Campground is open for fun
  
Glen Rouge Campground, the City of Toronto’s only campground is open for the season. The campground is located in Rouge Park on the north side of Kingston Road between Sheppard Avenue East and Altona Road.

The 8.7 hectare campground is equipped with 125 sites, including 87 that are fully-serviced for recreational vehicles and 11 that are designed specifically for backpackers. The facility is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week throughout the camping season and is equipped with public phones, firewood sales, and newly renovated washrooms with showers.

“From the Glen Rouge campground, nature enthusiasts can hike or paddle into the heart of the Rouge Park, an ecological treasure and the largest urban park in the country,” said Brenda Librecz, General Manager of Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation. “The campground is equally convenient for those people who want to explore the city.”

Public transportation can be easily accessed from the campground so Toronto attractions such as the Toronto Zoo, Lake Ontario beaches and all the excitement of downtown are just minutes away.

More information about the Glen Rouge Campground is available online at http://www.toronto.ca/parks. Camp sites may be reserved by calling 416-338-CAMP (2267).
