Getting to Algonquin during the G8

Anyone traveling to our Algonquin location or planning a trip into the Park during the week of June 21-28 will need to be aware of road closures and security measures happening as a result of the G8 Summit.

G8 Summit in the Algonquin Park Area
G8 LogoOn June 25 & 26, 2010, the G8 Summit comes to the Algonquin Park Area. Leaders from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States will be meeting at Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Ontario.
Throughout the week of June 21 - 28, 2010, a number of internationally protected persons and accompanying very important persons will travel to the Huntsville area with a significant number of support staff to attend the G8 Summit.

As a result, sections of Highway 60 between Huntsville and Dwight (near Deerhurst Resort) will be restricted. Visitors heading to Algonquin Park through Huntsville must seek an alternate route.

At this time, no closures or restrictions within Algonquin Park are expected -- it is business as normal. All Park facilities and services are available during the G8, but travel to the Park along Highway 60 will be restricted. See the map below for comprehensive travel restrictions and alternate routes to Algonquin Park.
