Boating

Pigeon River leads to the Trent Severn Waterway. This canal system links Lake Ontario to Georgian Bay and is popular with recreational boaters. There are two boat launches located in the park.

Canoeing

The wide Pigeon River offers excellent canoeing for beginners. If you do not have a canoe, you can rent one at the Park Store. Many unique frogs and birds can be found in the wetland along the River. Head out exploring to see wetland wildlife in their natural home.

Fishing

Drop your line off the park dock for panfish or cast off from your boat for a larger catch such as walleye, muskie and Large and Small Mouth Bass. Live bait and tackle are available at the Park Store.

Natural Heritage Education

Throughout the summer, park staff provide a number of different educational activities including campfire programs, children’s programs, and information displays. Event schedules are posted on activity boards throughout the park.

Swimming

Two sandy beaches border the Pigeon River. The beaches are shallow and warm. Swimming areas are marked with buoys. Please note: there are no lifeguards posted at the beaches and pets are not permitted.

Winter Activities

The park is accessible during the day for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or winter hiking. All facilities are closed and parking is limited.
