Victoria Day Long Weekend, perfect opportunity to get outside. Marten River Provincial Park is on Hwy 11 about 60 km north of North Bay. It is within about four to five hours from Mississauga, a reasonable distance for a quiet long weekend getaway.

For the Off Road Enthusiasts, there are several Forest Service Roads in the area.

Marten River is mostly Crown Land (Policy ID: E154r) and belongs to the North Bay District. Consult the Crown Land Use Policy Atlas from the Ministry of Natural Resources for current information. Provincial Parks are regulated by a different Policy ID. Be aware, there is usually no cell phone connection.Map Icon

We returned to the Park in spring 2018 to explore the Finlayson Lake, just south of the park.
