Toronto's Glen Rouge Campground is open for the summer
  
Glen Rouge Campground, Toronto's only campground, is located in Rouge Park on
the north side of Kingston Road between Sheppard Avenue East and Altona Road,
and it is now open for the season.

"We offer visitors a unique urban wilderness experience," said Brenda Librecz,
General Manager of Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation. "Nature enthusiasts
can hike or paddle into the heart of the Rouge Park, an ecological treasure and
the largest urban park in the country. At the same time, those looking for
adventure in the City will find the campground is convenient and easily
accessible to public transit - we are just minutes away from tourist
attractions such as the Toronto Zoo, Lake Ontario beaches and all the
excitement of downtown Toronto."

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.

More information about Glen Rouge Campground is available on-line at

416-338-CAMP (2267).
