The 21-Day Rule for Camping on Crown Land

Ontario is reminding people of rules and sharing tips for the
camping season.
Much of Ontario’s public lands are available year-round for
recreational enjoyment, including camping on Crown land.
Canadian residents can camp for free on Crown land for up
to 21 days at one site in a calendar year, unless the site has
been restricted for a specific reason. After 21 days, the
person and camping equipment must move a minimum of
100 meters to another location. This temporary use ensures
that sites are available to others and helps reduce environmental impacts.
