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

Marten River Historical Logging Camp
The Logging Camp has several buildings. These buildings are made of round timber and equipped with tools from the the old days.
Every third weekend in July, the park celebrates the Lumberjack Days. Come and enjoy the music, food and test your loggers’ skills.
|Take your time and read the description. The buildings and tools are all documented.
