City of Toronto’s Glen Rouge Campground opens for the season
Glen Rouge Campground, nestled in 12,000 acres of forests and meadows in Rouge Park at Kingston Rd. and Sheppard Ave., is now open for the season. Glen Rouge is operated by Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation and is Toronto’s only campground.

Glen Rouge Campground provides a unique urban wilderness experience offering the best of both worlds for travellers and residents alike. Nature enthusiasts can hike or paddle into the heart of the Rouge Park, an ecological treasure and Canada’s largest urban park. Those looking for adventure in the city will find the campground is just minutes away from attractions, including the Toronto Zoo, Lake Ontario beaches and two of the City’s five public golf courses - Tam O’Shanter and Dentonia Park. Glen Rouge Campground is a short GO train ride away from downtown Toronto, including the CN Tower, Rogers Centre, Toronto Island Park, shopping, theatres and summer festivals.

The 8.7 hectare campground is equipped with 125 sites, including 87 that are fully-serviced for recreational vehicles, 27 unserviced sites and 11 that are designed specifically for backpackers. The facility is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week throughout the camping season until October 8 and is equipped with clean washrooms, showers, coin laundry, vending machines, fire pits and barbecues. Also available are a children’s play area, and sites to play volleyball and horseshoes.
