Emily Provincial Park is a prime outdoor recreation spot in the Kawartha Lakes Region. The area is known for its abundant water, as it is situated on the Trent-severn waterway. This waterway is made up of a corridor of rivers and lakes that provides access between Lake Ontario and Georgian Bay. The marshlands interspersed in the area provide important habitats for osprey, which can be found nesting in the area. For over 60 years, this park has offered nature lovers picturesque trails, abundant fishing, swimming, and private camping experiences. The abundant water in the region makes canoeing a very popular activity, and the wide Pigeon River offers excellent canoeing for beginners. Fishing is also popular, off the park dock or in the open water while paddling around. Swimming in Pigeon River is refreshing and great for kids with its sandy, shallow beaches. You can also enjoy winter activities in this park. Please contact the park for more details.
