Guess what? Algonquin Park is also named and spelled Algonquin Provincial Park - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.
Algonquin Park is the oldest provincial park in Canada, established in 1893. It spans several hundred kilometers in each direction and is a popular place during the holiday seasons in Canada for the locals in Toronto and Ottawa. It is well known as an incredibly diverse area to see many of Canada's native animals, such as black bears, moose, deer, beavers, otters, lynx cats, and many more.
Depending on the season, there is an abundance of activities to do within the park. During the winter, dog sledding and cross-country skiing are available. A greater amount of activities are available during the summer -- canoeing, hiking, fishing, mountain bike riding, horseback riding, and camping are available. Known as one of Canada's best places to canoe with more than two thousand kilometers of rivers to explore, you can go for day trips or overnight trips; most of the gear that you may require for this is available for rent from local businesses within the park.
While there are no hostels in Algonquin Park, hostels are scattered all the way around the park in the small towns that supply it. Depending on the types of activities that you would like to do within the park and the things that you would like to see, it is probably best to choose your hostel's location based on this. The park is not accessible from most of these towns, so it is best if you have access to a car to get around; hitchhiking is also another alternative for transportation.
