Flat Lake Park


Wilderness camping

Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided.

If you must have a fire, please burn only dead and down wood, and be sure to extinguish the fire fully. Dead wood is also an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil - so please use it conservatively, if at all. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.
There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks. The lakes are shallow and warm up relatively fast. With the abundant aquatic vegetation and muddy bottom, however, swimming can be recommended only for the truly determined.
Canoeing is the best way to see Flat Lake Park with its series of small lakes. To paddle the entire chain usually takes two days. Kayaking is possible, though since portages are frequent, it is more tiring.
Pets on leash
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears. If you must bring your dog, ensure it is under control at all times.
Winter recreation
There are cross-country skiing and snowshoeing opportunities at this park. However, access and trails are not maintained during the winter.
