A drop of heaven for a night

Spend the night under a natural canopy and fall asleep admiring the stars! A great opportunity to discover or rediscover the joys of camping at new heights. Make it a memorable family experience or couple’s getaway in a tear drop-shaped ‘duplex’, with a convertible table/bed on the main level and suspended hammock loft above.

Situated along the historic Trent-Severn Waterway surrounded by nature, Parks Canada Ôasis sites claim some of the most beautiful waterside views in Eastern Ontario. Whether you're travelling by water or by land, these unique accommodations will ensure that you make wonderful new memories along your journey. At Parks Canada, we are pleased to offer you the opportunity to discover these peaceful sites with our Ôasis's at two locations: Lock 9 - Meyers and Lock 10 - Hauges Reach.
