Algonquin Provincial Park
Algonquin Park is home to 20 different kinds of reptiles and amphibians (none are poisonous), 40 types of mammals, and over 130 bird species.
In reality, this translates into having the haunting calls of the loon, morning and night. Canoeists will share the lake with families of mallards and merganser ducks, and the occasional beaver and muskrat. Campers will enjoy the antics of squirrels and chipmunks, and the visits of black bear or raccoon. Moose sightings are frequent along the Parkway corridor in spring, while the deer population varies from year to year. Summertime "wolf howls," by Park rangers, will often result in a return greeting from the forest depths.
