Kettle Lakes Provincial Park is a provincial park in north-eastern Ontario, about east of Timmins. It is administered by Ontario Parks, which classifies it as a recreation park.The landscape of the park is the legacy of the retreat of an enormous glacier at the end of the last Ice Age, approximately 12,000 years ago. After the glacier retrated, half-buried icebergs melted to form small, deep lakes referred to by earth scientists as kettle lakes. Twenty of the 22 lakes in Kettle Lakes Provincial Park are kettles. The retreating glacier also left eskers and erratics.The lakes are surrounded by forests made up primarily of jack pine interspersed with balsam fir, red and white pine, and white and black spruce. Stands of deciduous trees such as trembling aspen and white birch may also be found in the park.There are 139 campsites in the park in two campgrounds. The park is also a popular destination for canoeing, swimming at one of several sandy beaches, hiking and fishing.

  • I rented the Green Slab Lake for a family gathering, we had our own huge field to play in, a huge covered seating area to eat, a charcoal BBQ, a lake, washrooms, and we had so much fun 
  • Amazing place! Great camping. Keep your garbage in your car though. Last year we went for 3 weeks and saw a bear just outside the park on our way to town. Make sure you bring a bicycle because the park is huge it's good to be able to go places around the park without polluting. Going back again in August 2014 for 4 weeks this time. even though this park is 8 hours away from us its defiantly going to be a yearly trip!!
  • Over 100 lakes in this Park ...great place for families & fun
