The following passage is an excerpt from the 1994 version of the Algonquin Provincial Park brochure available from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.

"Pursue unexcelled opportunities for outdoor adventure and education in Algonquin Provincial Park - the oldest and most famous provincial park in Ontario and one of the largest in Canada. Just three or four hours away from Toronto or Ottawa, Algonquin stretches across 7,600 square kilometres of wild and beautiful lakes and forests, bogs and rivers, cliffs and beaches - a canoeist's and camper's paradise as far as the eye can see.

"Hear the call of a loon echoing from rocky lakeshores, gaze at the sunset silhouetting a solitary pine, and watch a beaver forging a rippling wedge across a glassy pond. A fish splashes, a moose raises its massive head to stare at passing paddlers, and high above a windy cliff, a croaking raven surveys a landsccape of lakes, forests, streams and bogs from horizon to horizon. At nighfall, two canoeists look up from their flickering campfire and drink in the wild music of wolves wafting over the ancient hills. This is Algonquin Provincial Park."
