Cycling on park roads is a great way to get around and an enjoyable way to explore the park. Visitors are reminded that Ontario law requires helmets to be worn by those 18 years old and younger, when cycling on roads, including those in provincial parks.
Lake of the Woods is home to a variety of migratory birds. Be sure to look for the large American White Pelicans.
Some of the most spectacular scenery in Northwestern Ontario can be viewed on the waters of Lake of the Woods. Launch your boat at the park ramp for cruising, sailing or waterskiing. A ten minute cruise down the lake takes you to centuries-old pictographs.
Lake of the Woods offers many opportunities for exploration. Canoes are available for rent from the park office.
Lake of the Woods is internationally renowned for its walleye fishing; Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass are also extremely popular with anglers. Fishing licences are available a short distance away in the Town of Sioux Narrows.

Fern Valley Trail – 1.6 km, easy

The many waterfront sites at Sioux Narrows give campers the chance to swim without even leaving their sites. A family friendly sandy beach is only minutes from the campground.
