Where to stay in Algonquin park ?

Looking to camp / BBQ / fish / hangout in the park during the day but would like to stay in a hotel / motel overnight. Not necessarily looking for cottage/cabins. Not bringing a tent this time. Can someone recommend area in Algonquin park ? The hotel should be reasonable distance from the campground (~30km)

Thanks

First, there are a lot of campgrounds in Algonquin, and without actually booking one, I'm not sure how you plan to 'camp' there during the day or BBQ ... I know there are picnic spots but I don't think they have BBQs.
There are a few hotels inside the Park, Killarney Lodge is probably one of the nicer ones I think but its not cheap. Outside the park, there are more: haven't stayed here myself but it looks pretty good when we drive past: http://wolfdenbunkhouse.com/, have stayed in a basic room here and it was just fine: http://www.bluespruce.ca/.

You'll need a day use permit for Algonquin which you can pick up at the gate and of course, a fishing license unless you're visiting there during one of the license-free weeks.

Killarney Lodge looks really nice, maybe one day :)
Thanks for suggestions.
I don't mind booking a campground if need be. I'm assuming if it's not overnight, it's not that expensive

I once stayed at Algonquin Lake hotel. It was amazing. The room was on the water with a walk-out patio and a jacuzzi. The room was very big and clean. It may be fully booked, but it's not expensive, and the driving into Algonquin is about 20 minutes (West gate). From personal experience, give them a try.

Oh ya, when I checked in, the patio doors were open. A chipmunk then ran inside my room. He didn't hang out long, but was cute watching him run around for a bit :)
