A long, curving lip of sandy beach with warm, shallow water for swimming beckons families with young children to this lake between Chapleau and Timmins. This park is a popular spot for family holidays, fishing trips, and canoe outings and is a great place to either hike alone (or with park naturalists) to the bog and kettle lakes, or paddle out to your own favourite spot to see moose in their natural habitat.
