Abitibi-De-Troyes Provincial Park
By Ontario Parks

Natural Features

This northern Ontario park consists of winding Lake Abitibi, parts of the Abitibi and Black rivers, and a 12-kilometre peninsula extending into Lake Abitibi. Following the natural contours of the waterways, the park features coniferous forest, swamps, eskers, kettle basins, and waterfowl nesting areas. An esker is a narrow, winding ridge of gravel or sand, deposited by the melting waters under a glacier.

Owing to the shallowness, muddiness and extreme wave action of Lake Abitibi, caution is advised when navigating. A guide is recommended for lake travel.

Abitibi-de-Troyes is accessible only by air or water, and there are no park facilities for visitors. The park offers backcountry canoeing, camping, fishing and nature viewing.
