In The Area
The canoe portage around the lower rapids of Rushing River between Blindfold and Dogtooth Lakes commences at our camp. This trail ends at Rushing River Provincial Park, a distance of a little less than a mile.
A foot bridge, about ¼ mile above the camp, allows access to both sides of the river. On one side hikers have breathtaking views of the rapids from high above, while on the other side you are close to river level.
This walk can take between 1 and 2 hours, depending upon your interests.
Rushing River Provincial Park is just over a mile by road from the camp.
This is a great place for families to visit as there are many activities for kids; a large playground, sand beach, picnic benches beside the rapids, natural history museum, and nature trails.
At Rushing River General Store, located 2 miles by road from the camp, you can obtain grocery necessities, gasoline, and souvenirs as well as play a game of miniature golf.
Kenora, home of Husky the Musky, and 15,000 people, is a picturesque city with grocery stores, diverse shopping opportunities, a wide selection of restaurants, movie theatre, museum, 3 golf courses, and hiking trails.
You can get there by car in 25 minutes, or if you are adventurous, you can travel by boat in 1 – 1.5 hours.
