There are dozens of freshwater lakes within 10 minutes of our KOA, including the world-renowned Georgian Bay. Rankin Lake, which is just a seven minute walk down the road and includes a great dock for fishing, has been a hotspot for fishing enthusiasts! The various fish species include, small and large mouth bass, Northern Pike, Lake Trout, and Perch to name a few. Boat, motor and equipment rentals are available at marinas nearby.
ATVing - Trans-Canada/Seguin Trail
This trail is located at the back of the campground and is accessed directly from our campground. The trail can be used for hiking, mountain biking, and for ATV's.
