Does anyone know if it's legal to still camp on public and crown land in Ontario because of covid-19? I read awhile ago in March it was gonna be banned for abit, but I'm seeing online that public campgrounds/RV parking lots are still gonna rent it out to the public? I would like to do some camping with a tent on Ontario crown land? Do some backpacking, swimming in the lakes, berry-picking, fishing, get my man to teach me how to hunt little animals of course like rabbits, etc if that's legal of course. He's Ojibway and a good hunter, I'm Metis, and polish. I'm really hunting we can do begining. month of June. Thanx 😄 People.

So far the news isn't great. It seems like regular campsites in Ontario might reopen for overnight stays, but Crown land is still closed as far as i can gather. My friends in Ontario are still hunkering down at home with a good supply of beer in the fridge.

Here is the official roadmap to reopen, although it doesn't mention Crown land specifically: Ontario Newsroom - https://news.ontario.ca/en/backgrounder/1000159/roadmap-to-reopen

CBC did an article on Sudbury area situation yesterday: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/sudbury/may-long-weekend-northern-ontario-covid-19-1.6032491

All we can do at the moment is wait. Get vaccinated and try encourage friends and family to vaccinate too - the reopening in Ontario is hinging on 60% or 70% of province having gotten the shot.

Keep on eye on this site too, they seem to be updating a bit: COVID-19 at Ontario Parks - https://www.ontarioparks.com/covid19

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
