Canoeing the South River

I enjoyed a great afternoon canoeing a portion of the South River last week with naturalist Blair ( aka Dr. Baldwin). The river is so peaceful and thankfully unspoiled. With it's headwaters in Algonquin Park, the South River flows west out of Algonquin and all the way to Lake Nippising. We saw plenty of moose tracks, 2 black bear cubs climbing a tree and were accompanied by a family of Morganzers who swam with us for a few hours. Our Algonquin Outpost has a few unique adventure tours that include a river run down the South River.

Couples will like the "Algonquin Adventure for Two" while seasoned canoers might enjoy our "Algonquin Canoe Discovery" which fetaures paddling 3 different lakes / rivers in 3 days.

The South River has a few obstacles to manoevre around including this massive old growth white pine.

Surprise Lake Creek and spring creek runs

The sound of rushing water can be heard from the Log Cabin dock at this time of year. The creeks are swollen which presents a great opportunity to bring out the playboat and have some fun in the moving water. There are several creeks/ small rivers around both the Algonquin Log Cabin and Algonquin Cottage Outpost with good access. For those of you white water fans, call our office for how we can shape a great late April/ early May weeknd for you!
