Whitefish Lake Picnic Area

Whitefish Lake

Whitefish lake lies in the center of Kenauk Nature, 8 km. from the entrance gate. This is the center for summer activities and base camp for the nature guides. Canoes and kayaks are available and for the uninitiated, an orientation is given by the nature guides most days throughout the summer. Guided excursions to the marshy river across the lake with its beaver lodges, muskrat dens and varied water plants and birds occur throughout the summer that are well suited to families or couples alike. There is also a small sand beach for children, picnic tables and a grassy area for playing.

Hiking trails 8 and 9 start at the picnic area, and form 2 loops through the forest adjacent to Whitefish lake and the Kinonge river. Both trails have nature interpretation signs. Allow 1 to 2 hours depending on which trail you choose.

Additional hiking trails are scattered along the main road from the entrance to the marina. Walks with the nature guides are sure to interest everyone and give insights into spring and summer flowers, edible plants, ancestral uses of the flora, the lives of the deer, moose, chipmunks, squirrels and numerous other species of animals that live in our forests. Fall is the perfect time for hiking the many trails as the forest of maples and birch are plastered with leaves in the shades of red, orange and yellow for which the Canadian forest is famous.
