The Great Outdoors
Fort Frances' pristine lakes and rivers, specifically Rainy Lake, make you feel that you have stepped ashore as a first explorer. Rainy Lake's waters provide a safe and fun place to swim, fish, boat, engage in water sports, and enjoy a little slice of Northwestern Ontario Heaven.
Rainy Lake is a premier fishing destination for residents and tourists alike. Whether you're looking to land bass, walleye, or a monster muskie, you've come to the right place.
Swimming anyone? Visit the park and enjoy a stroll under the oak trees or take a dip in the clean, clear waters of Rainy Lake. Camping and picnicking are welcome.
The marina is located on the Rainy River waterfront (LaVerendrye Parkway and Minne Avenue) and features a boat launch and fuel station. Stop here for an ice cream cone after a lovely walk on the waterfront.
Ski, Snowshoe, Snowmobile Trails
Experience a true North winter in Northwestern Ontario with a pair of snowshoes or cross-country skis on the area trails. Try ice fishing on Rainy Lake or go snowmobiling on the abundant snowmobile trails across the district.
