We offer great fishing on Lake Temagami

Play some beach volleyball on our sandy court!

Enjoy a game of beach volleyball with your friends. Or you can invite some of the other cottagers to join you in the fun.

We have basketball hoops and provide volleyballs and basketballs.

The court also works well for badminton and other racquet sports – bring your own badminton or racquetball equipment!


Play some horseshoes and meet your neighbours!

Challenge a friend or one of your cottage neighbours to a game of horseshoes. It’s a great way to have fun and meet your neighbours too.

Camp Fire

This is a great community gathering spot in the evenings, where people have a chance to discuss their days. We provide the firewood, you provide the conversation, and Mother Nature provides the ambience.

Join us at the community campfire each night.
