Ontario is blessed with some of the most scenic and enjoyable lakes and rivers in the world – it is truly a paddler’s paradise. Top 60 Canoe Routes of Ontario, curated and written by Canada’s Happy Camper, Kevin Callan, is the essential guide to the best paddling excursions this province has to offer.

Update and expanded, this new edition highlights Kevin’s favourite canoe routes. Every route is complete with maps of access points, portage lengths, important river features and campsites, which Kevin embellishes with historical notes, anecdotes advice and his trademark humor. The book also includes an extensive list of items to pack before you go.

Top 60 Canoe Routes of Ontario features:

  • Saugeen River
  • York River
  • Barron Canoyon
  • Big East River
  • Charleston Lake Provincial Park
  • Lake Evelyn Loop
  • Great Mountain Lake
  • Abitibi River
  • Turtle River
  • And many, many more

The outings range from two-day paddles to week-long expeditions, and while some of the routes are well known to paddlers province-wide, such as the historical Oxtongue River, others are hidden secrets, like Kevin’s ambitious and magical route through Woodland Caribou Provincial Park.
