Excellent Escape
Ive been going up to the Brent campground every year over the past 15 years. The campground is the perfect place to sit back and relax for the entire trip, or just to use for sleep and waiting out the rain in between exploring Cedar Lake. The lake offers some of the most incredible views, the real “Northern Canada” type of scenery. With some warms waters along the shorelines by mid June, the beach areas make the hot days enjoyable to sit back and soak in the surrounding mountains. With always a passing canoe to watch coming and going from the many portages, an eagle flying by, or just listening to the loons calling, Brent campground is a perfect escape from everyday life.

Jump off or stay over!
Have you ever been to Brent? The little town, the history, the crater, the campsites are all well worth the stop. Whether it is to use a jump-off site to go backcountry, a stop in on a paddle through backcountry or to use as a base camp, Brent has it all! Sites are well spaced, the progression to environmentally-friendly toilets and waste disposal systems...Top notch camping!

Worth the drive to visit this pristine area of Algonquin. We had a very nice site, enough space for two tents, and a kitchen tent with easy access to the Lakeside. A very nice quiet sandy beach entry access. The sites are well-drained site, even if the weather is wet, which drain very well due to the sandy nature of the soil. We recommend the visit. A walk down into the Brent Crater is also fun and really interesting.

Brent Campground, Algonquin Park
Brent Campground is a great little campground. The drive in does take some patience, but once you are there, you really feel like you are disconnected and immersed in nature. The campground is small, but most of the sites I've seen are pretty nice and close to the water. I camped on a non reservable site while I was there and it was a really great site. I had access to the water and brought my kayak so I could paddle around the lake. The trip I did was a calm, relaxing, restful trip, and I got exactly that, at this campground. (site #26)
