Fairbank Provincial Park
By Ontario Parks

The main attraction at this park west of Sudbury is Fairbank Lake, a crater created by a meteorite that hit the earth millions of years ago. The spring-fed lake is so clear it attracts snorkellers and scuba divers. Camp around the rim of the lake and climb to trail lookouts to view it and the Fairbank fault.

Please check park alerts (boil water advisories, beach advisories and firebans)
Each of the 160 campsites, including 40 with electrical service, has a picnic table, fireplace and nearby amenities.

Group Camping - Fairbank has two group camping sites, one that accommodates 10 large trailers (30 people), and the second that accommodate 20-30 people. Vault privies are found on site and water nearby. Both sites are close to the beach, while the first site is about a 1 minute walk from the comfort station and the second is a ten minute walk. Reservations can be made by calling the park directly at (705) 866-0530.
