Tent Camping & Glamping in Algonquin Park
Whether Glamping or Canoe Tripping in Algonquin Park, our guests have many options to experience life in the forest.
For those looking to come closer in nature, sleeping in a tent in Algonquin Park rather than a cabin, we have a variety of tent camping options:
How can I stay in a tent at the Edge?
- Embark on a Canoe Trip to the interior of Algonquin Park; spend 4 days/3 nights exploring and tent-camping with the safety of an experienced guide, all meals & equipment included.
- Guests participating in our retreat programs have the opportunity to stay in our Canvas Cabins. Sometimes called “glamping”, these tent-style accommodations allow you to enjoy the great outdoors by day and curl up under a feather duvet in a comfortable bed, ready to welcome a new day in this bright intimate space.
- While upgrades are often available for retreat guests looking for a more luxurious stay in a Studio Cabin, our guests sometimes save $40/night off the price of a retreat by pitching their own tent on one of our spacious forest platforms.
What is “Glamping”?
Glamping, or glamorous camping, is a new term that describes staying in a tent-style accommodation, in a comfortable bed rather than sleeping on the ground.
While many people love to get closer to nature, staying in a sleeping bag on the ground is not always the most comfortable for everybody: This is why our canvas cabins come equipped with feather duvets, comfortable beds, and solar-powered lighting.
The canvas walls of these retrofitted “prospector tents” let the sunshine naturally brighten your space in the morning, and let in the sounds of nature such as birds chirping and the wind gently rustling the leaves of the forest.
Our Up North: Algonquin Explorer retreat was designed for the adventurous soul who would like to experience canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and more – all while staying comfortable in a bed: glamping, rather than camping.
