Black Bears in Algonquin Park

Our guides often receive questions about bears on our Algonquin canoe and lodge trips. The chance of seeing a bear in a pristine wilderness area like Algonquin is very rare. You are more likely to run into a black bear near a campground like highway #60 or a Cottage or lodge where there might be garbage or a nice smelling BBQ. Both our Algonquin Log Cabin and Cottage Outpost do have bears drop by so we go to great lengths to keep any garbage inside and wash and bleach our BBQ after every use.
