Depending on which provincial park you had in mind for Victoria Day weekend camping, you might be disappointed.

Dave Sproule is a marketing specialist with Ontario Parks.

“René Brunelle is still planned to be open for the planned opening date,” he reports, “but Esker Lakes and Kettle Lakes are quite snowy still.  So they’re going to be delayed in their opening until May 24th.”

Kettle Lakes Park is between Timmins and Iroquois Falls. René Brunelle Park is in Moonbeam, and Esker Lakes is northeast of Kirkland Lake.

“We’re looking forward to hosting our campers,” Sproule adds, “and it’ll be of course a little bit chillier in the spring, but it’ll be nice, I’m sure.”
