The Nottawasaga River is a scenic canoe route that is navigable from Willow Creek, a 1-hour paddle above Edenvale to Wasaga Beach. The river has phenomenal scenery along serpentine channels that cut through high banks and sand dunes. It also flows through the Minesing Wetland Conservation Area, one of Southern Ontario's largest swamps that is a haven for wildlife viewing. Fishing is best at Jacks Lake or the Oxbow or Montgomery Rapids in spring and fall when trout and salmon swim up the river. Edenvale Park has a picnic area and boat launch located at the bridge on Highway 26. Klondike Sports Park also has a canoe launch further downstream. Local outfitters offer canoe and kayak rentals and shuttles from the Schooner Town Park beside the bridge on River Road West. Jet ski rentals are located at the Mosley Street bridge near the river mouth and motor boats can be launched at Beach Area 1 and at the Nancy Island Historic Site.
