Algonquin Park Wildlife Viewing


May  and June has more Moose sightings than any other time of the year. The moose come out along the roads for leftover winter salt from the winter sanding operations that pools into salty puddles beside Highway # 60 .It is almost impossible not to see at least one Moose on a drive through Algonquin Park during these months.

Although many animal species can be observed May through November most visitors find that the best viewing is before the heat of the summer but after food sources again become available and Algonquin Park animals are busy taking advantage of the many emerging sources of food.


It is very common to see moose, black bear, deer, foxes, beaver, wolves right along the road. Those willing to venture can observe many animal species if you have the patience to wait quietly at an observation spot. If you have the time for longer stays in the Park you typically get a feel for observation points and of course morning and evening are prime times.

Perfect for those early sunrise shots or, after a long day in the park, a short drive back to our warm comfortable accommodation. The Parkway Resort welcomes all individual photographers or small groups.
