At the “Height of the Land”, Esker Provincial Park is situated on the edge of the great continental divide, between the Arctic and Atlantic watershed. As in the name, Esker, the landscape of the park was formed by the glaciers from the last ice age. In fact, the Munroe Esker in this park is the largest on record in Ontario. When hiking through the trails, you will see large snake-like eskers, bogs, sand dunes, sandy beaches, and a boreal forest. These are all typical landscapes formed from a glacial past. There are 29 pristine lakes in the park, many of which are connected by portage routes. This makes canoeing and kayaking very popular and enjoyable activities. For the adventurous ones, two backcountry campsites are available, which are only accessible by canoe. The park landscape also caters to other recreational activities, like swimming, hiking, picnicking, camping, birdwatching, and fishing. When you visit this unique park, keep your eyes peeled for moose, fox, bear, lynx, beaver, wolf, and many bird species! You can also enjoy winter activities in this park.
