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.

Canoe Lake was the favourite campsite of painter Tom Thompson. Thomson is one of the Group of Seven Artists who lived in the early 1900s. He spent years painting mostly around Canoe Lake. He died mysteriously and his canoe was found overturned and his body was pulled from the lake after several days of his vanishing.
It is at km 14,1. The park's main sights are listed from west to east along Highway 60. So a sight at "Km 14,1" is 14,1 kilometers east of the west gate.
You can shop at Portage Store and rent a canoe here. Toilets are clean.
