What You'll Like:

The Matinenda Lake area is a wild and rugged landscape. Two types of landforms dominate, rugged and gently rolling bedrock uplands with lakeshore, island and swamp environments, and gently rolling sandy uplands with extensive lichen barrens. Sheltered conifer forest provides winter habitat for moose and white-tailed deer, and cold clear water provide excellent lake trout habitat. Brook Trout occur in a few of the lakes and in many of the cold water streams draining into the area.

Location: 15 kilometres north of the town of Blind River.

Park Facilities: There are no facilities available, there are two identified canoe routes.
