Map of the Human History of Canoe Lake, Algonquin Park

Canoe Lake was once the center of logging activities in the park. It was also the site of the original park headquarters. The east-west Ottawa, Arnprior and Parry Sound Railway was built just beyond its north end, serving both local logging and tourism needs. Since those early days, numerous lodges, youth camps and cottage leaseholds have come and gone around Canoe Lake. When Highway 60 and the Portage Store opened at the lake's south end in the mid-30's, Canoe Lake was set in its fate of becoming the "main street" to interior access for canoe trippers. Some of the history of Canoe Lake is still evident to canoeists paddling north against its typical headwind .. the youth camps, leasehold cottages and associated landmarks. However, a tremendous amount of Canoe Lake's history has rotted away or been overgrown .. to be only read about and wondered over.

Gaye Clemson and Chris Brackley have produced a 25x39" wall map presenting the full scope of both Canoe Lake's current and historical landmarks. Before next heading north from Access Point 5, spend a few hours with this wonderful map. You may well get the urge to explore Bonita Narrows, Whisky Jack Creek, the old Mowat town site and Potter Creek rather than 'just heading through' Canoe Lake.
