Emerald Lake Tour

Emerald Lake features a sandy bottom and a clear turquoise hued lake. Spot fish as you paddle the calm, small lake among old growth white pine forest conservation reserve.

Trip Highlights

This trip starts with a 45km drive to the McConnell Lakes Recreation Area where 35 lakes and their immediate surroundings are considered important earth science features. Nature viewing and swimming make this trip great for families with children in their toddler years.  If the sun is too hot, a short drive further will bring you to McLarens Bay Waterfall. Lunch options available for an extra fee. Meals are made in a food safe kitchen and dietary restrictions can be accommodated.
