3 Things You Need to Know about Camping on the Trail:

 

1. Camping along the Trail not in the designated campgrounds is considered trespassing. 

The Bruce Trail runs through land that is owned by over 1000 different landowners, thanks to generous agreements with those landowners.

Those agreements can be jeopardized when the Trail is not used appropriately, and in some cases trail ends up being re-routed, often along roads.

Help us keep the Trail along the Niagara Escarpment. Please camp only in designated campgrounds.

 

2. Through-hikers need to consider other options for accommodation

Pursuing a full End-to-End of the Bruce Trail as a through-hike using only camping for accommodation is not realistic given how few and far between the campgrounds are.

Plan on including some B & B's , Hotels and Motels in your accommodation choices or arrange to stay with aquaintences.

 

3. Arrangements for camping cannot be made through the Bruce Trail Conservancy. 

See the camping list above for contact details for campround operators.

Reservations are often required. Contact the operators for more details.
