If international travel isn’t on your radar this summer, good old-fashioned camping is still within reach! It’s a classic pastime around these parts: campfires, s’mores and sleeping under the stars make for great summer memories in the Bay of Quinte.
Here’s a quick round-up of places to pitch a tent or park your RV this summer for a camping getaway to the great outdoors. (Okay, we included a few cottages too for those who want just a teeny bit of separation between themselves and the outdoors.) Check out each park’s website for a full list of amenities and additional health & safety practices in place during COVID-19.
