Camping in the bush can be frustrating with new rules, regulations, fees, and reservations. Good new today Toronto will let u camp in city parks. If anyone knows some canoe routes near city parks please post

There's a pretty fantastic pedal boat route at Harbourfront. I also know some good wading pool routes but am reluctant to post for fear they'll fill up, so please DM me if interested.

But joking aside, paddling the lake or Toronto rivers and setting up a camp could be a fun day out. A buddy of mine regularly paddles the Humber down to the lake.

This is (or ought to be) no joke. The TRCA mother of all master plans allows for no less than 90 km of 'bluewater' trails in the greater GTA. These will be navigable stretches of waterfront and/or various watersheds that are linked up with maps and signage. Limited camping where land and availability allows would be a natural fit.The up and coming sport of pack-rafting is also a very good fit. The greater GTA has a tremendous amount of untapped potential in so many ways, really the only thing that is tapped out so far is massive amounts of superhighways. Let's hope hwy 413 dries up and blows away shortly after covid 19.

Glen Rouge campground, just above Kingston Rd., is currently closed for renovations. Don't know when that will be done. If you want to try King's Mill Park at 43.64642, -79.49528, you could do the Humber.
