Campground Overview

Brent campground is located on the shores of Cedar Lake, located on the north side of Algonquin. This small and quiet campground is preferred by those who enjoy a smaller site in a remote location. The campground is 40.5 kilometers drive down a gravel road off Highway 17 between Mattawa and Petawawa. This picturesque campground is treed with White and Red Pine and offers 30 campsites (some with direct water access). Brent offers beaches, recreational vehicle campsites, boat launch, flush toilets, and two ranger cabins.

This campground also has two very unique features: birds and meteorites. More than 260 bird species have been recorded in the park. Many southern and overseas birders make special trips to Algonquin just to see northern specialties such as the Gray Jay and the Spruce Grouse, not to mention the rich variety of warblers or Algonquin’s most famous bird of all—the Common Loon, found nesting on just about every lake.

And the meteorite?

Campers can enjoy a visit to the Brent Historic Walking Trail to learn more about the area or hike the Brent Crater Trail where a meteorite crashed into the earth millions of years ago.
