Lake Nipissing - a small tour on the lake
Tourism, Ontario, Travel Guide
Go to page
Lake Nipissing covers an area of 829 km². The lake is very shallow.
The average depth is 4.5 m. The deepest spot was measured with 52 m.
This means that boaters must be careful not to damage their boat, but for swimmers it is an advantage the lake warms up very fast.
André offered us on an afternoon a trip with one of his motor boats. We were pleased about that and Elizabeth's parents were also excited. Her mom did not wanted to travel, so her husband went always with a relative on many trips. Now she enjoyed it to be away for a short time.
Before we began with our tour it became a little bit overcast. But soon we had sunshine again.
There was no storm warning - otherwise André would not have gone with his precious freight.
Whenever we close to the shore we could see many homes, just built to spend vacations or weekends here.
Probably people from Toronto or other richer areas. I could not see lot of industry in this part of Ontario.
Many of these houses are insulated and can be used all year long.
Lake Nipissing is well known for ice fishing. We tried it also for one day. Visit our web site about this little adventure.
Some of our friends want to retire in a winterized cottage. The only problem I can see that in very remote areas the medical care system may not be as good as in a populated region.
We got similar requests from Germany and Austria, but we are not in the real estate business and so far no agency approached us.
I believe it is a dream of many Europeans to live a simple life surrounded by nature. A project in Newfoundland confirmed that.
André knew the lake, but he always watched the bathometer when we were in certain areas.
Sometimes the depth was below 2 m and hidden rocks could easily cause expensive damage to the boat. For that reason everybody had to wear a life west. This is regulation which you must obey.
We did not race and all the water birds appreciated that and did not fly away.
At this time I was still using my first digital camera which did not have good zoom. So I cannot show reasonable images of these encounters.
We passed some islands and we thought they are uninhabited. André told us that some people did not built their houses that everybody can see them. I remembered the story when an US movie star complained about all the boaters who disturbed her privacy on another lake.
I think we were just lucky when we landed at the other cottage resort with a small boat at an island to go swimming and to pick wild raspberries.
Please ask always before you do a boat trip on your own that you do not make the same mistake. To get sued by a movie star can be expensive.
When did you watch the last time a sunrise or a sunset?
We had to come to this camp to see at least beautiful sunsets.
The sunrises we missed, because we slept so well. No thundering trucks or roaring motor bikes and the chipmunks had not yet figured out, how to wake us up. Our cats know how to do that!
We were one of his first customers in this resort and received always a special treatment.
We have been in an other nice cottage resort before but that was sold and we found Rockview Camp. Now this gas changed hands too!
We would love to live in the country side up north.
Unfortunately, we cannot move to a place like this. But it is only a day trip from Welland to Callander, and that is no distance in Canada or even in Ontario.
