Welcome to Algonquin Basecamp! We are a small family operated business (formerly Trailside Adventure Co.), and our goal is to make your Algonquin experience the best trip possible. Come and enjoy our end of Algonquin Park, that offers a quiet, true “Algonquin wilderness” feel with tons of wildlife, great lakes and of course great fishing!
Algonquin Basecamp began 20 years ago, as a tripping company for “Youth at Risk”. We have designed, outfitted and guided wilderness adventures for various groups and programs in many wilderness areas in Ontario. Now we offer this experience and our outfitting services to you. This will be our ninth season running our outfitting shop and we thank all of our great customers for making it a success. Here at the Basecamp, we provide complete or partial outfitting and a hearty menu selection with fresh and freeze dried food systems. Let our basecamp, on the west side of Algonquin Park serve as your “Adventure starts here Headquarters!” We are directly on route to Tim Lake (access #2), Magnetawan Lake (access #3), and Rain lake (access #4), and we are only 20 minutes away from Highway 60. We can outfit your next canoe, backpacking, kayak, or winter camping trip. We have a great selection of new and used gear in our little shop and if we don’t have what you are looking for, we will gladly order it in (usually 2 days-week). We offer great names in our rental line and retail sales- Souris River canoes, Nova Craft Canoes, Clearwater Design kayaks, Badger Paddles, Redtail paddles, Hooligan Gear, Brunton, GSI, Backpackers Pantry and many more. In stock we have great prices on outdoor gear and carry a great selection of tripping gear. We have canoes, kayaks, paddles, life jackets, tents/tarps, sleeping bags, dry bags, pillows, canoe packs, barrels/harnesses, dog pfds and packs, cook kits / stoves, fishing gear and much more!

We are located directly across from the Kearney permit office.
