Tom Thomson is one of the inspirations for the group of Canadian artists known as the "Group of Seven." He described himself as an artist, guide and woodsman. He helped popularize Algonquin Provincial Park drowned mysteriously in 1917 at Canoe Lake. This is a memorial to Tom Thomson and overlooks the lake he loved and drowned in.

it is possible to rent by your own... at very competitive prices, but also it is possible to get a trip with a guide and teacher... for those ones without a lot of experience... after that.. nice craft beers are served on the cantine.

This is the most common starting point for canoeists, and especially for novice canoeists and campers. The outfitter has a large operation here and the local canoe routes are relatively simple. Many, many people come here and rent a canoe for a few hours to simply canoe on Canoe Lake, made famous by Tom Thompson and the summer camps that have been on this lake since the early part of the last century. A restaurant and gift story operator during the summer, as well as late spring and early fall.

Easy to access, with plenty of parking space.
Canoe Lake is quite large, yet a good location to get to know canoeing. We had a great day on the water, experiencing how to navigate a canoe for the first time. You are informed quite well before leaving, yet be aware that you have "to do it all yourself". Which includes putting the boat in the water & getting in the canoe. And of course - at the end of the trip - getting out of the canoe and getting the canoe out of the water. But: someone is watching you, and is prepared to help you if needed.

Even you don't rent a canoe, it is worth a visit. The view of the fall colors and the lake is so beautiful. It is better than some of the trails. I will definitely visit it again.
