Bonnechere River Watershed Park

This 23 kilometre long, 1198-ha Waterway Class park is non-operating but currently provides easily-accessible fishing, swimming and flatwater paddling opportunities for an increasing number of visitors to the Round Lake area. It connects the portions of the Bonnechere River found in Algonquin Provincial Park and Bonnechere Provincial Park. The historic resources of the waterway are also used for cultural heritage education programs run out of Bonnechere Park. There is a series of short, shallow rapids -- culminating in Jack's Chute -- at the lower end of the waterway park. Canoes cannot run through the low water and cobble in the summer. Instead, paddlers walk, line or follow the shoreline through the rapids area. There is no formal portage. There are several access points and a small number of designated campsites. Visitors are encouraged to contact the Park Superintendent at Bonnechere Provincial Park for information if you wish to visit the park
