South River is truly a fine destination to visit and/or use as a home base while exploring Algonquin or Mikisew Provincial Parks.
Campers can select a site in the 300-acre mixed forest of Mikisew, located 16 kilometres west of town, with its three beaches and boat launch. Head out on an amazing canoe journey into Algonquin Park by launching your canoe on Lake Kawawaymog (Round Lake) entrance to the park. Vehicles can be left at this entrance, located 20 kilometres east of South River.
Signs on Eagle Lake Road will lead explorers to South River's area trails on the Old Nipissing Road, through the old Rye settlement and along the shores of Eagle, Bray and King Lakes.
South River downtown provides shopping with its grocery and convenience stores, real estate agency, gas bar, medical centre, pharmacy, beer and liquor stores, local craft brewery and more! An ample number of shops and galleries present local creations like paintings, sculpture, photography, pottery, glasswork, porcelain dolls, handcrafted knives, accommodations, herbal and aromatherapy products.
Come, stay and play a day in beautiful South River!
