Fall Turkey trip on Bentshoe Lakes September 7 to 9 2012

Join us once again for this Fall Festival weekend canoe trip. This year I have booked a group campsite on Bentshoe Lakes near Haliburton off of hwy 118. As usual the food is the theme for this trip, canoeing is secondary making the one short portage to the lake easy. The lake is small but big enough to explore for the day with adjoining lakes if interested. The permit fee will be split equally among the participants. Saturday’s turkey dinner with all the trimmings will be a group effort. The permit limits us to 8 tents and 16 people; I ask that you share a tent on this trip.

Due to the permit restrictions, I will only take reservations and make confirmation by email or phone only. Sorry no on-line bookings.

How to Get There
Event Directions: 

Bentshoe Lakes parking lot is located on highway 118 roughly 31.1 km east of Bracebridge and hwy 11 to the Cell Tower and 34.1 km to the parking lot. Or coming from the west it is 20 km west of Carnarvon and hwy 35. The parking lot is shared with Big East lake located on the south side.

Look for the green fire route address sign # 5128 on the south side; it is the ONLY sign marking the entrance to the parking lot and canoe system. You will see the large “Big East Lake” sign once you turn into the driveway.

I have GPS coordinates too.

Carpool Info: 

please make your own arrangements.

Cancellation Policy: 
I have already paid for the permit. You have requested to attend. I may have or had a waiting list. If you do not show, it is only fair that you pay your share.
