Typical electrical campsite post in Algonquin Park

Electrical campsites in Algonquin Park generally share electrical outlets between two neighbouring campsites. This means you and your camping neighbour will share the same electrical post with 4 outlets (two 15amp and two 30amp circuits), see above. Since placement of the electrical post varies depending upon the campground and specific campsite, it is recommended to bring the longest extension cord you have access to, which will allow you to run electricity from the post to your desired camping location. A 15 metre (50 foot) or 30 metre (100 foot) extension cord is generally what is suggested in most circumstances.


Generator use is permitted in developed campgrounds in Algonquin Park with certain restrictions.

  • Generators are not permitted in the Achray Campground.
  • Generators are not permitted at paddle-in campsites.
  • The possession or use of generators is prohibited in the backcountry of Algonquin Park from April 1 through Thanksgiving Day.
  • The use of generators is subject to the no excessive noise policy. Generators cannot be the source of excessive noise nor disturb others enjoyment of Algonquin Park any time of the day or night.

Instead of running a generator, consider reserving an electrical campsite available in many campgrounds. If you must run a generator, minimize generator run time.
