Canoe & Kayak

Aaron Provincial Park is located on the shores of Thunder Lake.  A great place to explore but do take note of weather conditions and weather reports. This is a large body of water, and high winds can make paddling tricky or dangerous. Do take advice from park staff.

An overview map is available for Aaron Provincial Park on the official website.

Once you become more proficient, Aaron PP is a good point to start exploring several major canoe routes.
