North Frontenac is quite simply Eastern Ontario’s best recreational backcountry experience.  Discover breathtaking beauty, witness undisturbed nature, explore timeless terrain and enjoy quiet solitude and tranquility.

North Frontenac Park Lands is a collection of 184 backcountry campsites nestled along the shores of 12 lakes atop the Madawaska highlands and Mississippi Valley watershed.

Carved from the Precambrian granite of the Canadian Shield North Frontenac Park Lands were 2 ½ billion years in the making—residing entirely on crown land it remains one of the most pristine natural environments in the province.

North Frontenac Park Lands—come discover Eastern Ontario’s Backcountry Experience™, just north of Highway 7, 2 hours west of Ottawa, 3 hours east of Toronto.

The water is very low at Crotch Lake; therefore it is not possible to launch at the South entrance on the Crotch Lake Access Road.  It is also very difficult to launch a boat at the north end of Crotch Lake at the South Bush Road Launch; however a canoe could be launched at the north end launch, at this time.

Take notice of any severe weather notices in the area.
