Did you know that there’s a park in northern Ontario with over 20 lakes? Sounds wild but it’s true. If you’re looking for an exciting summer adventure, head to Kettle Lakes Provincial Park and see what all the hype is about.

About seven hours north of Toronto is Kettle Lakes Provincial Park, a nature escape that offers plenty of outdoor activities such as fishing, hiking, and swimming.

This park has exactly 22Ā deep, spring-fed kettle lakes formed by glaciers, according to Ontario Parks. And many of them are actually stocked up with Rainbow and Brook Trout, includingĀ Northern Pike and Yellow Perch.

You will also have the opportunity to go boating and canoeing on select lakes such as Hughes Lakes.

Love biking?Ā Kettle Lakes actually has 14 kilometres of biking trails. “The trails wind through the forest and lead you to Slab Lake where you can have a swim before continuing your journey,” shares Ontario Parks. You can rent bikes if you don’t have your own, at the front gate.

If you’re looking for a hiking experience, there are four different trails, each with its own appeal.

Kettle Trail is a great choice as it leads you alongĀ an ancient glacial riverbed “and passes bogs that occupy some of the kettle depressions,” per Ontario Parks.

Once you’re done your climb, head for a swim at one of the two main beach areas that areĀ located on Island Lake, Slab Lake, and Green Lake.
