What You'll Like:

Englehart River Fine Sand Plain and Waterway Provincial Park is within the western Abitibi Subprovince, in the Archean Superior Province. For most of its southeastwardly flow through the park, the Englehart River occupies the surface trace of the Cross Lake Fault. The northeast facing Cross Lake Fault escarpment is the southwest boundary of the Lake Timiskaming Rift Valley, a fault-bounded structural and topographical trough. The park supports a mix of coniferous and intolerant hardwood species; intolerant hardwoods with pockets of mixed pine, jack pine, and other coniferous dominate along the waterway. The fish species found in this lake include walleye, lake trout, lake herring, pike, ling, brown bullhead, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and white sucker. The park also protects a portion of the Englehart River canoe route. This canoe route begins at the Englehart River Bridge on Highway 66 at the north end of the park.

Location: Approximately 48 kilometres southwest of the Town of Kirkland Lake and 20 kilometres west of the Town of Englehart.

Park Facilities: There are no visitor facilities available.
