This campsite is just steps from the sandy beach; you can relax and swim all day in the clear water. Use the park as a jump-off point for challenging canoe routes on the Nagagami and Shekak Rivers. Anglers return year after year to this large secluded lake, drawn by the excellent fishing for Walleye, Northern Pike and Yellow Perch.

There’s a lot in store for Nagagamisis campers this weekend with five Discovery drop-in programs going on. Check out Amazing Amphibians on the August 4. Get set up to explore, observe, and discover the amphibian species that call our park home

René Brunelle offers excellent paddling opportunities on Remi Lake, especially exploring the park’s undeveloped north shore. The park rents canoes and kayaks.

This is an ecological region known as the Boreal Forest, often called the songbird nursery because so many nest here each summer. The four sandy beaches, shallow, clear water and buoyed areas are perfect for family swimming.

René Brunelle is less than 2 hours from Timmins.

Kettle Lakes Provincial Park
