The French River runs from Lake Nipissing to Georgian Bay, 105kms in total. The French River Provincial Park has a beautiful scenic wilderness created by interconnecting lakes and gorges along with rapids and swifts that provide a wide variety of water routes, and endless possibilities for recreational activities. Due to the rich history of the French River it is recognized as a Canadian Heritage River and is one of the most historically significant rivers in Ontario. Heavily used by the Mississauga and Anishinabek Nations who were the first to use this waterway to access different parts of the land, the voyageurs then used this waterway for fur trade. As resource extraction became a priority, the logging industry took advantage of the easy access this river provided to the interior and to Georgian Bay.
We will be paddling a section of the Main Channel – from Wolseley Bay to Dry Pine Bay. The route is a total of approximately 40kms which we will do over 4 days. It has beginner whitewater, perfect for families or anyone wanting to have a small taste of the fun that whitewater canoeing offers.
We acknowledge that the French River Provincial Park is located on the traditional territories of the Mississauga and Anishinabek Nations and is recognized under both the Williams (1923) and Robinson-Huron (Treaty 61, 1850) Treaties. We recognize that we are visitors to this land.
