Travellers who are looking to be one with nature may want to consider renting a cabin in Georgian Bay Islands National Park, a popular destination about a half hour outside of Barrie, Ontario.

The Globe and Mail reports that cabins in the area are now available to renters, particularly those who are looking for a bit of rustic flair during their stay. However, the news provider states that people should be sure to pay attention to the term "rustic" in the description.

"The fact people have to travel 100 yards to the washroom is not outside the realm of experience of people visiting a national park," Graham Lamb, a manager at Georgian Bay Islands National Park, told the news provider.

For those who really want to get in touch with nature, the national park offers the opportunity for tent camping.

The total park area is 13.5 square kilometers and can only be reached by boat. It may be a good idea to purchase Canadian travel insurance for those who are thinking about embarking on this rustic experience, particularly if the waters are too rocky to travel to the island.
