Sauble Falls Provincial Park
By Ontario Parks

Every spring and fall, rainbow trout and chinook salmon struggle over each ledge of this cascading waterfall to spawn upstream. Flanked by immature forest, the falls used to power a timber mill and generating station. Now they are the terminus of the Rankin River canoe route, ideal for novice canoeists.

Group Camping
There are two group camping areas, one that accommodates 15-20 people, another that accommodates up to 80. Both sites have outhouses on site, and water taps nearby.
