Spruce Islands

What You'll Like :

The park is situated on a low-lying, sedimentary plain that was once the bed of post-glacial Lake Agassiz. The area is a jumble of swamps, string bogs, patterned fens, and small, teardrop-shaped isles of coniferous forest, surrounded by peat marsh. This pattern gave rise to the name “Spruce Islands.”

Park Facilities and Activities: There are no visitors’ facilities. To protect this distinctive but fragile natural habitat, activities are limited to nature viewing, study and interpretation.

Location: About 70 km northwest of Fort Frances.
