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.

  • Beautiful. Great price for a day pass too. Park is clean and well maintained. Great place for families to camp or spend the day. Outdoor grills on site for ppl to use lots of parking...and great views. Many birds and animals to be spotted too! Our kids were amazed to see the tadpoles each week grow and become frogs and toads!
  • Great for camping if you have an RV. Not so good for tents. Lots of great trails in area as long as the weather co-operates!
  • 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.
  • Always a great campsite or day visit to the lakes. Well kept and close to a full convenience store and LCBO. Also close to Timmins but definitely has that Ontario Provincial Park feel. GOOD TIMES.
  • Was terrific,clean. Like Glamping in the forest. several lakes and beaches. Hot showers and flush toilets.
