What You'll Like :

The signs that glaciers once covered this area are readily apparent from the topography with its abundance of eskers, kames, kettles and moraines. Eskers, kames and moraines are differently shaped features consisting of gravel or sand deposited by the melting waters under a retreating glacier. Kettles were formed when great blocks of glacial ice broke off and left deep impressions in the earth. All of these landforms are covered by a layer of clay, deposited by a vanished lake. Other outstanding natural features in the park include a 26-metre waterfall, and a stand of 300-year-old red pine.

Park Facilities and Activities: There are no visitors’ facilities. However, the park offers excellent opportunities for backcountry canoeing, camping, picnicking, and angling.

Location: Location: Sixty-six kilometres north of Cochrane. Road access is via Highway 652, or a private forest road. Water access via the Zinger Lake chain or the Abitibi River. Air access via a section of the Little Abitibi River above the diversion dam in Kineras Township.
