Our government needs to maintain equitable access to backcountry camping for single people and couples. The flat fee pilot needs to be cancelled.

Because I am sick and tired of all those including the government, have decided that now is the time to gouge
everything from soup to nuts including back country sites!

Our wilderness is not for profit or only for those who can pay!

This increase prohibits low income and single travellers. Don't we want mental health? Don't we want people in nature? Don't we want people using provincial parks? or does the government just want more money without serving the people?

Thanks for adding your voice.

It is unfair to charge solo backcountry campers the same rate as car camping. There are too many differences in facilities offered in the backcountry camping. This is an unfair policy and should not be implemented in Ontario. Our tax dollars help pay for the parks as do any fees now charged. Please do not allow this increase to become the policy. I assure you it will back fire as less people will be able to afford to enjoy our beautiful parks. Thank you for standing with us to prevent this from happening.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Shame on the Ontario government, taking a loved resource that is our Canadian birthright and gouging it's citizens. The excuses heard to date proves pure politics and money grab to offset the mismanagement. Rethink your policy. How about charging for your cocktail parties the way you are rating the camps. Hope you get to meet a bear.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Because I used to camp all the time and loved growing up and staying in provincial parks in Ontario. Important they keep it affordable.
