White Lake

White Lake, a 6,500 hectare lake, is one of the largest lakes on the Lake Superior Circle Route. It features excellent fishing for walleye and northern pike, and is also a great place to swim, thanks to warm waters and sandy beaches. Interpretive programs feature the natural and cultural heritage of the area and include three sprawling nature trails which explore the boreal forest.


Going for a walk along the shore


White Lake offers car camping in three campgrounds: Woodlily, Moccasin Flower and Sundew Campgrounds.

One group site is available and can accommodate 50-60 people. Though isolated, the site has vault toilets and water taps on site and is a five minute drive to the comfort station.

Deer Lake Trail: 2.5 km (1-1.5 hours) with a shorter 1.5km loop, easy.
Take this self-guided trail to birdwatch, enjoy the sunset and see nature’s greatest engineer, the beaver, at work. The Deer Lake Trail provides ample opportunities for viewing birds and wetland wildlife as it winds through the boreal forest skirting the shores of Deer Lake and a beaver marsh. Located near the Deer Lake trailhead is a viewing platform which is great place to view a sunset, cast a line or just watch nature at its best.
Tiny Bog: 4.5 km (2-2.5 hours), moderate
The trail loops around two large beaver ponds and then climbs a sandy ridge of Jack Pines before arriving at the bog. A boardwalk crosses the bog where insect-eating plants such as Sundew and Pitcher Plant grow in a carpet of floating Sphagnum Moss. You’ll find a viewing platform at the bog and benches along the trail.
