Arowhon Pines is fully booked for the rest of the 2021 season; we are taking bookings for 2022 at this time.
Autumn Guests with Reservations:
Algonquin Park is busy in the fall, especially during the weekends. If you arrive at either the West or East Gate and Algonquin Park has reached capacity, visitors will not be permitted to enter. This absolutely does not affect registered guests of Arowhon Pines. Drive through and do not stop to pay for a permit; we will provide you one upon arrival. Weekend guests should know that Park trails are busy, your favourites might be closed and parking lots full; traffic on Highway 60 is slow and (gasp) you might not make it back for lunch! Enjoy our trails instead that start from our property. If you do venture out, make sure that you bring your park permit and display it on your dashboard. Stay safe.
Each season we strive to hire a team of positive, outgoing and friendly people. Everyone agrees to check their egos at the gates, pay attention to the teaching that happens in order to become part of an awesome team whose priority is to provide a memorable holiday for guests. At the same time, you will live life in gorgeous Algonquin Park (canoe, hike, swim, see moose) and make many new friends. Respect and kindness for others and good communication are keys to a great summer!

You must be able to live on site. Accommodation and meals is provided on the grounds. We accept foreign applications however you must have legal permission to work in Canada.
