Ferris Provincial Park
Ferris Provincial Park is located in a lovely area of rolling wooded hills and old fields beside the Trent River. The river features a picturesque waterfall and scenic bluffs carved into the limestone bedrock. Formally the Ferris Farmstead, the park is characterised by kilometres of unique old dry-stonewall fencing, some of which has been recently rebuilt. The campground has a selection of spacious wooded and open sites, some with spectacular vistas over the Trent River Valley.

Mikisew Provincial Park
Mikisew Provincial Park is known for the great recreational opportunities that Eagle Lake has to offer: swimming, fishing, paddling and boating. Pack a picnic lunch and head to one of the three sandy beaches with warm, shallow waters and relax the day away. Or, if you prefer to be more active, Eagle Lake is an angler’s delight with both deep, cold water and shallow, warmer water fish species ready to grab your line! Mikisew also has a stellar dog beach and dog agility area.

Nagagamisis Provincial Park
Nagagamisis Provincial Park is quiet, seemingly remote but easily accessible and offers a true northern experience. Good fishing and swimming seem a given on a lake who’s name in Cree means “lake with fine, sandy shores”. With a variety of fish species in Nagagamisis, anglers seek both the quiet solitude of the north and the challenge of finding the big one lurking in the deep. The lake also leads to challenging canoe routes on the Nagagami and Shekak rivers, part of the arctic watershed leading to James Bay.
