About Us

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. Thirteen years ago we decided to open up our outfitting shop and offer our experience and outfitting services to you. Here at the Basecamp, we provide complete or partial outfitting. We have a hearty menu selection with fresh and freeze dried food systems. Let our Basecamp, serve as your “Adventure starts here Headquarters!” On the West side of Algonquin Park, 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. Let us outfit your next canoe, backpacking, kayak, or winter camping trip. Our little shop has a great selection of gear and our rental and retail lines include: Souris River canoes, H2O Canoes, Nova Craft Canoes, Badger Paddles, Redtail paddles, GSI, Level Six and many more. In stock we have great prices on outdoor gear and carry a great selection of tripping gear. Canoes, kayaks, paddles, life jackets, tents/tarps, sleeping bags, dry bags, pillows, canoe packs, barrels/harnesses, cook kits / stoves, fishing gear and much more!
