Thursday, September 5, 2013 to Sunday, September 8, 2013

Join us for a long weekend star party under the famous pristine dark skies of Algonquin. It’s a great way to make new friends, talk astronomy, and enjoy the camaraderie of others around the communal campfires. Algonquin Park also offers lots of daytime activities like hiking, museums, art galleries, swimming, canoeing, and bird watching. This years’ Annual Algonquin Adventure takes place from Thursday September 5th through Sunday 8th.

Mew Lake location
The star party is held at the Mew Lake Campground within the Algonquin Park. The campground is fully equipped with clean restrooms, free showers and a sandy beach on a small, calm lake.

Mew Lake offers campsites with electricity, without electricity and Yurts. A Yurt is a semi-permanent structure which sleeps 6 and is perfect for those who do not enjoy the tenting experience.  All you need to bring is food, clothing, and bedding. There are only 7 yurts at Mew Lake, so reserve early to avoid disappointment.
