Algonquin & Beyond

A brand new map of Algonquin Park is here! “Maps By Jeff” (previously, “Unlostify”), has released his highly anticipated map of Algonquin Park. A digital version is available below. You can zoom in and out, scroll to zoom, and drag to reposition the map. A physical copy can be purchased by visiting his website mapsbyjeff.com.

PRO TIP: Want to see how many permits are issued for a given lake, and how many permits are still available? Use the Google Chrome extension SiteScout. The extension is completely free but you can support the project by making a small donation on the SiteScout website.

Jeff’s Map no longer exists. The company officially dissolved in 2018, and then in 2021, Flash Player reached end-of-life, so the Algonquin Map available at the company’s website was no longer accessible.

A little while after leaving Jeff’s Map, Jeff joined Unlostify. Jeff and Deki released several maps together as Unlostify. Deki would eventually leave Unlostify, and going back to his original roots of making maps on his own, Jeff decided to rebrand the company to “Maps By Jeff”.

Jeff’s Algonquin Map v5, from the original company Jeff’s Map, was considered the gold standard Algonquin Park map by many people. Alternative options exist, like Ontario Park’s Official Canoe Routes Map of Algonquin Park, the Chrismar Algonquin Park Map Series, the Backroad Maps Algonquin Park Waterproof Map, and more. In late 2023, Jeff released the highly anticipated Algonquin Map v6 under his new brand “Maps By Jeff”. Will this be the new gold standard? Time will tell!

There is an Official Canoe Routes Map of Algonquin Park. It is available to view digitally, and can be purchased online at a very affordable price. However, it’s worth noting that the map isn’t the most up-to-date and has known inaccuracies. 

There are no campsite numbers for backcountry canoeing campsites in Algonquin Park (this is different than car-camping or backcountry hiking). The campsite numbers that you may see on some versions of the Algonquin Park map are a community-based effort to help make referencing specific campsites easier. The numbering system is not official and therefore is not included by the original mapmakers.

With a landmass as large as Algonquin Park, it’s impossible for the entire area to be documented and updated in real-time. Constant updates are required and is often collected through community-sourced information. The Algonquin Map v6 from “Maps by Jeff”, shown below, is the most recent, most informative, and most up-to-date map of Algonquin Park that currently exists. 

The map below is the Algonquin Map v6, from Maps By Jeff. A digital option is available to view online, but if you’d like to purchase your own copy, which includes a physical copy, along with various digital formats for Garmin, Google Earth, Avenza, as well as full-res JPEG,  you can visit mapsbyjeff.com
