Visiting The Massasauga Park,
The Massasauga Provincial Parkis located in the Parry Sound District of Ontario, stretching from the town of Parry Sound south to the Moon River. The Park has an area of 131.05 km2(50.60 sq mi).
The Park encompasses hundreds of islands on the coast of Georgian Bay and many inland lakes including Clear Lake and Spider Lake. Classified as a "Natural Environment" park, it contains no roads, so camping is limited to interior sites. The sites on the bay can be reached by motor boat whereas those on the lakes are typically reached by non-motorized craft such as canoes or kayaks. The Park also has mooring anchors for boats to overnight in some inlets on Georgian Bay.
"Massasauga" means "mouth of the river" in Ojibwe. The name also refers to the massasauga rattlesnake, which is found in the area.
