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, kayaks and paddle boards 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 and 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.
Our fish hatchery is located at Whitefish Lake and is now open and producing fish to stock several of our private lakes for your fishing enjoyment! Recent renovations to improve production and comply with stringent environmental standards have taken place. The hatchery will produce approximately 25 tons of rainbow, speckled and brown trout every year (that’s about 100,000 adult fish!), providing Kenauk with a secure supply of fish stock. This ensures our lakes will provide a unique angling experience for each and every guest. Yet another fun activity to do at Kenauk Nature! Walk-in tours are available during the week between 9:00am and 3:00pm. Weekend tours are available on Sundays at 10:00am, for these please make a reservation at least 24 hours in advance at our reception.
Welcome to the Kenauk Nature marina on Papineau Lake. This is where clients can rent motor boats for half or full days. We have also created a gathering place at our marina called the Booze & Plank where people can come together to share stories, socialize and enjoy themselves. Please feel free to enjoy the new Booze & Plank anytime throughout the summer. Bringing your own refreshments is encouraged!
