Its size, combined with its proximity to the major urban centres of Toronto and Ottawa, makes Algonquin one of the most popular provincial parks in the province and the country. Highway 60 runs through the south of the park, while the Trans-Canada Highway bypasses it to the north.Over 2,400 lakes and 1,200 kilometres of streams and rivers are located within the park. Some notable examples include Canoe Lake and the Petawawa, Nipissing, Amable du Fond, Madawaska, and Tim rivers.
Its a place of beauty, mystery and if luck goes your way, Some of the most fantastic brook trout fishing around! It took quite some time to locate good size fish, but boy it was worth it. Just make sure you bring lots of bug-spray!
We set up base camp on one of the corridor lakes, then headed to every accessible stream and lake that we could find. This day would result in what we call the "Algonquin park hat-trick" - Catching Brook Trout, Lake Trout and Splake on the same day! We are trying to make it a "grand slam" but we have yet to locate any rainbow trout in the park. It's best to travel by canoe, however with some time and effort, we have located many "drive-to" areas in and around the park
Algonquin - God's CountryAlgonquin is the most incredible, beautiful place I have seen! One of the last wilderness frontiers![126.96.36.199]
