Finlayson Point Provincial Park
By Ontario Parks

Gateway to Temagami's vast wilderness, including Lady Evelyn Smoothwater, Finlayson Point is a base for canoeists, boaters, hikers and anglers. Camp here beneath towering stands of pine, swim at a sandy beach, dive in deep, clear water or hike to Caribou Mountain lookout and fire tower. A plaque to Grey Owl honours this well-known English conservationist and imposter.
