Lake Talon is part of a historic waterway, the Nippissing Voyageur Passageway. This waterway took early travellers from the Ottawa River, Mattawa River through Talon Lake and Trout Lake into Lake Nipissing and remains a popular canoeing destination.
The Mattawa and North Rivers are easily accessible by canoe, kayak or even by small motor boat. From Camp Conewango short or long trips are possible.
Take a day trip to explore the breathtaking scenery of the route taken by the voyageurs, or take a short paddle along the shoreline.
The Dead River, just minutes from Camp Conewango, is a calm paradise with mirror-like reflections on the water. For fishing or watching wildlife, including birds, turtles, beavers, martens, muskrats and, if you are lucky, even deer or moose, the Dead River offers a quiet place to enjoy the solitude of nature.
Visit the bays and many islands on Lake Talon or the south end with the canyon like access to the chutes from where the Mattawa River leads to the Ottawa River.
We have rental canoes, kayaks and boats available.
