Canoeing & Kayaking Getaways @ Barry's Bay Cottages

Barry's Bay CottagesIf you are looking for a little more activity, then why not get out on one of our free rental canoes or kayaks to paddle about the lake for awhile. Stretching over 2 miles in length and home to several nice bays, you never know what will turn up around the next bay. Better yet, you can even easily link up with a series of three other lakes. After passing through the culvert onto Trout Lake, short portages are needed to continue south into Buch and Kulas Lakes. For the adventurous, this is a good day trip, while the area is riddled with fabulous canoe routes. Family raft trips and kayaking is offered at the Madawaska Kanu Centre, while all paddlers can take advantage of the services of Algonquin Bound Outfitters found nearby Algonquin Bound Outfitters.

part of a historic waterway, the Nippissing Voyageur Passageway. This waterway took early travellers from the Ottawa River, Mattawa River through Talon Lake and Trout Lake into Lake Nipissing.

Take a day trip to explore the breathtaking scenery of the route taken by the voyageurs, or take a short paddle along the shoreline.

The Dead River, just minutes from Camp Conewango, is a calm paradise with mirror-like reflections on the water. For fishing or watching wildlife, including birds, turtles, beavers, martens, muskrats and, if you are lucky, even deer or moose, the Dead River offers a quiet place to enjoy the solitude of nature. Visit the bays and many islands on Lake Talon or the south end with the canyon like access to the chutes from where the Mattawa River leads to the Ottawa River .
