Mapped: 19 Parks to Escape the Crowds


How We Created This Guide

Score(i) = 5 * [ ( x(i) - x(min) ) / ( x(max) - x(min) ) ] + 5

We examined hundreds of Ontario Provincial Parks and created a shortlist of the top 19 parks based on the five factors included below. To calculate the total score for each park, we used the equation above to get a representative numerical value between 5 and 10 for each category. We then added all of the scores to get the total experience score for each park. The hypothetical "perfect score" would be 50 out of 50.

Solitude Score: We used 2018 Ontario Provincial Parks Statistics to compare the size of each park and the number of annual visitors in 2018. The park with the lowest number of visitors per hectare was given a solitude score of 10, and the remaining parks were awarded a score of 5 or higher.

Wildlife Score: We used data provided by iNaturalist.ca for the number of observed species in each park. Provincial parks with the highest biodiversity were given a score of 10, and the remaining parks were awarded a score of 5 or higher.

Activities Score: We examined the number of sports and activities permitted in the park, as reported on the Ontario Provincial Parks website. Provincial parks with the most activities permitted were given a score of 10, and the remaining parks were awarded a score of 5 or higher.

Facilities Score: We examined the number of different services and amenities offered within the park, as reported on the Ontario Provincial Parks website. Provincial parks with the most facilities permitted were given a score of 10, and the remaining parks were awarded a score of 5 or higher.

Accommodation Score: We used HomeToGo’s own metasearch data to find the average number of available accommodations for 2+ people in locations within 30km of the park. The examined booking dates were weekends (Fri-Sun) between July 15 and September 1st, 2019. Provincial parks with the highest number of accommodations available on average were given a score of 10, and the remaining parks were awarded a score of 5 or higher.

The data for each of these categories was collected in early July 2019.
