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.

  • Our family spent a month camping here, and loved every minute of our time! The lakes are beautiful, grounds always clean, staff helpful and friendly. They have a number of large, fairly private campsites. After our time spent camping, we returned on several day trips to swim, hike, and BBQ.
  • Spent 5 days May long weekend. 30 ft motorhome roads and lots tight for rigs. Facilities clean enjoyed stay.
  • Great trails but easy to medium.
  • What a beautiful and unique park
