Black Donald Tent & Trailer Park is situated on the southeast corner of Black Donald/Centennial Lake. This beautiful 27-mile lake is part of the Madawaska River System that flows from Algonquin Park to the Ottawa River. It offers an abundance of water sports from kayaking and canoeing, to boating and fishing. This lake offers many different species of fish including Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Pickerel (Walleye), Whitefish, Perch, and Rock Bass.

Our campground makes a great family getaway, it extends along one mile of shoreline and offers spacious campsites that are shaded with beautiful White Pines. Whether you want to fish and explore, or just sit and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of nature, Black Donald Tent & Trailer Park provides the perfect opportunity for both recreation and relaxation for the whole family. Our campsites provide a variety of camping experiences; whether you want a basic tent site or have a larger RV, we are happy to accommodate!

We really love this place. We are going seasonal next year and are looking forward to it. The lake is gorgeous and the camping is great. Not to mention the hospitality is numero uno. Cheers.
Excellent camp hosted by a very welcoming and helpful family ... we visited years ago and have now found our corner in paradise with our seasonal site!
Best place around! Been a family favourite for a long time now!
Kevin and I became seasonal this year and we absolutely love it up here! Annie, John, Janice and Dwayne are all a great bunch. They run the camp perfect, couldn't ask for nicer people. Make you feel welcome and treat you like Family. We will continue on as seasonals here, no need to look more
A truly amazing slice of Canada. Beauty at every turn. Warm and friendly owners.
Very nice place to camp and fish luv it!
Love this campground, beautiful lake, great walking trails and the most wonderful staff you'll ever meet, thank you to Ann and the family, for yet, another great weekend of camping !
We just spent the week at Black Donald with some good friends and we loved it. Ann and her son, John, took care of us like we were family. The view is spectacular and you can fish or boat or paddle if you wish, or just spend the day on the floating dock at the diving rock. Beautiful park but the owners truly made the week special. We will visit again!read more
