    Hello
    We ended up scoring a site at Lake of Two Rivers for this weekend (no power).
    Just wondering if anyone knows if the fire pit has a grate as part of the standard equipment.
    I'm thinking of taking our cast iron skillet for some campfire pizza.
    Thanks!

    Thanks
    I thought the parks used standard fire pit bucket but the photo online of the campsite we got just shows a ring of rocks as far as I can tell.
    I was wondering about something like this just in case. I'd need to go investigate how sturdy it is. https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/woods-outfitter-cooking-grate-24-in-0765683p.html#srp

    Just noticed you are in canada. So the prices might be the same.

    Used one like that for years in my tent camping days. Took it out of the camper a couple of years ago. Cooked on it several times with a full 4 qt ci dutch oven, just make sure it's setting evenly on the ground. Also used it for grilling burgers and steaks. I don't recall any rust issues until we quit using it. Kept it in a heavy plastic bag when not in use.

    An old bbq grill is a great idea. Spring/early summer, you see lots of bbqs on the side of the road for free. Just take the grate lol.

    We camp in Algonquin a lot. While most of the sites have some kind of grille at the fire pit, sometimes the hinged grille is broken, and some sites only have a rock ring. Best to bring at least a separate grille, which can be propped up on stones if necessary.

    We have a separate grill as well, but I think the one that Snow quoted above looks quite handy! Going to look into getting that one!
