BOOKS
The Ghosts Of Canoe Lake- $15.00 CDN : Summary
 

Canoe Lake lies 14 kilometers from Algonquin Park's west gate. From the access point on Portage Bay beach, on a typical Saturday or Sunday during the heat of the summer, dozens of visitors venture onto the lake in rented canoes to paddle in the 'wilderness'. Most are unaware of the history of the lake around them. This booklet is a paddler's guide to various points of historical interest. It is designed to identify locations, historical roots and to share stories about the human history of this unique locale. Key locations include LIghthouse Point, Tom Thomson Cairn, Canoe Lake Cemetery, Canoe Lake Station,  Mowat Lodge, The Algonquin Hotel and Colson's Store.
