What You'll Like:

  • Conveniently located off of the Trans-Canada Highway, this park is the perfect stopping point for cross-country explorers.
  • Two sandy beaches and the clear, shallow waters of Thunder Lake make Aaron ideal for water based activities, such as swimming, boating and fishing.
  • The park’s Thunder Lake is a remnant of the ancient glaciers that covered Ontario tens of thousands of years ago.
