If you’re willing to spend $675 dollars, you could find yourself set up with a summer-long, prime camping spot in northwestern Ontario in 2015.
The Ministry of Natural Resources will hold a draw Nov.4 for 30 campsites at Arrow Lake Provincial Park, 70 kilometres southwest of Thunder Bay.
Lynda Horman, a park superintendent with the MNR said one of the reasons for the program is to reduce problems with campers violating the 21-day limit on staying at the same site.
“It’s an alternative to regular car camping that allows the visitors to camp on the same site for the season,” she said.
The sites were previously available on a first-come, first-served basis.
“It will make enforcement easier for us for the limits on campsites,” she said.
“It has been an issue with campers staying beyond limit, so this will allow them to stay and give some sites for first-come.”
Ten of the 40 sites at Arrow Lake will remain available for camping for shorter periods over the summer.
Applications for the seasonal draw close this Friday.
