Checking off new winter experiences at Silent Lake

Today’s post comes from year-round multispecies angler and writer Ashley Rae of SheLovesToFish.com.

This trip was especially exciting as Lori was chasing her first lake trout and we would be exploring a new body of water. We were also looking forward to staying in a yurt, something neither of us had experienced.

New cabins at Silent Lake

Today’s post comes from Mackenzie Green, an Operations Technician at Silent Lake Provincial Park. We’re delighted to announce the opening of 10 new cabins, which will be available on our reservation system as of June 2, 2017.

The jack-of-all trades. The problem-solver. These monikers are often used to describe the hard-working staff of Ontario Parks!

The broad scope of tasks that Ontario Parks employees undertake has resulted in a large work-force of creative problem solvers.

Recently, at Silent Lake Provincial Park, one of these unique challenges presented itself, and park staff were more than happy to rise to the occasion!
