Charlton Lake Camp is a housekeeping cottage resort set among the towering pines in Northern Ontario’s Rainbow Country just 2km off of HWY 6 between Espanola and Little Current. The cottages are modern one, two and three bedrooms, with large, well-equipped kitchens, modern bathrooms and comfortable living areas. Each cottage has a fully screened porch, propane barbecue and docking right in front. All face the waters of Charlton Lake and are steps from the beautiful sandy beach. The camp offers boat, canoe and kayak rentals, as well as a launch ramp and docking for guests who bring their own boat. The camp offers fishing (bass, walleye, pike and pan fish), swimming, boating and hiking. Eco-tourists will love the easy access to Killarney Provincial Park for canoeing, kayaking and hiking. Nestled in the magnificent La Cloche Mountain range, with the multicolored quartzite rock of the Canadian Shield, Charlton Lake Camp provides a haven for guests looking for peace and quiet. The spectacular scenery, whether from the seat of a canoe or atop one of the mountain peaks, is quite simply – breathtaking. A perfect location for artists and photographers, it is immediately obvious why the Group of Seven called this home.
