Massasauga Provincial Park

Massasauga Provincial Park is a wilderness park that can be reached from Pete's Place in Blackstone Harbour, from Three Legged Lake or by boat from Georgian Bay. No camping is allowed at access points, but only at designated interior sites, most of which are accessible only by boat. Permits and canoe rentals are available at Pete's Place or Oastler Lake Park. Moorings and docks are available throughout the park. 

The park’s features include old growth forest, plentiful wildlife, incredible geology, a maze of islands and fabulous fishing. The park contains diverse features such as rocky cliffs, shallow, sandy beachs, desert like alvars and marshes. A variety of rare plant and animal species live in these unusual habitats. Blandings Turtles, Five Lined Skinks (Ontario's only lizard), various raptors and the park's namesake, the Massasauga Rattlesnake all make the park their home. Wreck Island Trail covers striking landscape of weathered and marbled rocks. The Baker Trail begins a circular loop from Calhoun Lodge in Blackstone Harbour, which is an historical cottage estate dating back to the 1930's. The Nipissing-North Arm Orienteering Trail is a challenging route for serious hikers who want to camp at secluded, interior lakes. Old logging relics and mine shafts remain in the Spider Bay area as reminders of the region's pioneering past.
