Day Passes

You are very close to Haliburton Forest & Wild Life Reserve base camp, which has over 400 km of hiking and mountain biking trails and lakes. During your stay, your group can purchase day-passes from the Main Office at a cost of $8/person, which includes parking and access to the trails. The Main office is open 7-days a week (8am-5pm). For an additional cost, you can also do a Canopy Tour, take a Husky Hike, or visit their Wolf Centre to catch a glimpse of the Forest’s resident wolf pack.


Firewood and kindling can be purchased at Haliburton Forest’s Main Office and Cookhouse/Camp Store. Most gas stations also sell firewood.
