Some Ontario provincial parks want to squeeze more out of the fleeting days of summer as they extend fall camping.
There’s no holding back fall after a fast-moving summer and that certain nip in the air.
Ontario Parks is announcing that six parks will extend their camping season, said spokesman Jeff Brown.

Visitors to Bass Lake, Mikisew and Rushing River provincial parks will find the gates open until Oct. 15.
“Those looking to stay at Presqu’ile Provincial Park, Balsam Lake and Sandbanks provincial parks will be able to do so until Oct. 21,” he said.
They join several other parks that are open late into October or beyond. Check out the list of park dates at ontarioparks.com/operatingdates/2019
Another harbinger of the changing season is the return of fall colour reports coming soon.
