Mississagi Provincial Park
Mississagi Provincial Park is a natural environment-class park north of Elliot Lake, in Algoma District, Ontario, Canada. It lies on the Boland River, a tributary of the Little White River, which is a tributary of the Mississagi River. The park is accessed via Highway 639.
In late 2012, a release from the province stated that Mississagi Provincial Park would change its status from that of an 'operating' to a 'non-operating' park due to low visitation rates. As such, this park will not operate during the 2013 season. There will be no staff on site and facilities will not be maintained. The park will remain a protected area and visitors can continue to enjoy the park for day-use. The park will be gated and access is on foot.
A news release in June 2013 announced a one-year pilot project in which Ontario Parks would work with the city of Elliot Lake to continue operations at Mississagi Provincial Park with the goal of increasing revenue and visitation rates. Through this agreement, the park will continue to provide camping and other services during the 2013 season.
