Maple Syrup Time

Saturday, March 18, 2023

About the program

Maple syrup can only be produced in certain U.S states and Canada and only at a certain time of the year. Above-freezing day temperatures and below-freezing night temperatures bring out maple sugar farmers and park staff toting their supply of buckets, spiles, drills, and tubing to tap the trees and gather the sap. Aren’t we lucky to be in a part of the world where climate and conditions allow us to make pure maple syrup? Come witness this special time of the year.

Tapping Trees

Meet in front of the gift shop on the hour from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to learn how maple trees are tapped without harming the tree itself.

Sugar Shack

From tree to table - the sugar shack is where the sap is boiled, creating the sweet syrup we know and love!


Visit the colorful voyageur-era volunteers as they make maple syrup over an open fire. Learn a little history, like how maple sugar sustained Native Americans through long, difficult winters.

Wood's Historic Grist Mill

Meet the miller as he grinds corn into stone-ground cornmeal. Don't forget to taste Deep River's pure maple syrup while you're there!

Deep River Store

Purchase your very own maple syrup, maple sugar candy, and a spile to start your own backyard sugaring! Plenty of other unique items and gifts are available!
