Why not stay at the Fort for the night or maybe the whole weekend?

We've been developing our campground over the past few years and it's grown into something we're sure you'll like! So bring your family along with your tents or RV and enjoy an exciting night of family fun and entertainment!

Fort William offers many great options for campers such as FREE wi-fi, canoe and kayak rentals, or old favorites such as chatting around a bonfire or simply roasting a few marshmallows over the fire. Relax and enjoy yourselves at the World's Largest Fur Trade Post.

There’s more.  Enjoy full-service RV camping.  Nightly fees are $25.00 for non-serviced sites and $35.00 for serviced sites (plus HST). Serviced campsites include 20/30 amp and 50-amp capability with direct water hook-up.  Amenities include fresh water access, toilets and showers, and refuse.

Other complimentary components include shaded picnic areas with tables, and paved wheelchair-accessible paths.  The Fort William Trading Post in the Visitor Centre provides goods and services, featuring souvenirs, gifts, pop, water, and ice sales.
