Finlayson Point

Biking

Campers enjoy cycling on park roads.

Birding

Finlayson Point Provincial Park and the surrounding landscape provide many different habitats for birds. Warblers, flycatchers, hawks, owls and ducks nest in the surrounding forests each year. Watch and listen for them as they look for food, feed their chicks and defend their territories from rivals.

Boating

Power boats are allowed on Lake Temagami and many of the nearby lakes.

Canoeing

Launch your canoe and paddle on one of Ontario’s finest lakes - Lake Temagami. If the wide Northeast Arm is too windy, there are hundreds of small lakes easily accessible from Highway 11 or one of the many gravel roads in the area. Most of the lakes in the Temagami region, and there are more than 2,000 of them, are interconnected by portages, creating a 2,400 km network of routes.

Discovery Program

Join park staff for a Discovery Drop-in during the months of July & August. Bring along your Discovery Activity Book (or pick one up at the Drop-in), and use the equipment and materials provided to explore the park, observe plants and animals, and discover the wonders of nature. Be sure to share your observations with park staff, take the Discovery Ranger Pledge and receive your very own Discover Ranger Button! For more information keep an eye out for weekly calendar of events posted throughout the park.

Fishing

As it is such a large lake, with many diverse aquatic habitats, Lake Temagami is a popular angling spot for a wide variety of sport fish including Lake Trout, Lake Whitefish, Northern Pike, Pumpkinseed, Rock Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Walleye and Yellow Perch.

Swimming

There are two natural sand beaches recommended for swimming. Both of these beaches are marked with buoys and have gradual drop-offs. Please note: there are no lifeguards posted at the beaches and pets are not permitted.
