Drop Your Line And See What You Find

Some of the world’s greatest fishing and boating opportunities can be found here. Try your hand at kayak fishing. The calm, clear lakes of Frontenac Provincial Park provide the perfect environment for kayak fishing. Rental shops like the Frontenac Outfitters can set you up with a kayak and all the fishing gear you need. Glide through the water while angling for smallmouth bass, lake trout, perch and pike.

Get Your Paddle On

Several routes even take in the water surroundings at Frontenac Provincial Park  Kayaks and paddleboards are also available at the start of some routes.

 Frontenac Provincial Park also paddling routes, with nearly 50 interior campsites, so excursions don’t have to end at dusk. Make this a summer to explore on the water!

Shopping At Trousdale’s General Store

“Ever-changing and never changing” is the motto Trousdale General Store lives by. Step into a building that has been standing since 1836 and has been owned by a member of the Trousdale family ever since!

Walking through the door at Trousdale’s in Sydenham is like stepping back in time. The wooden floor creaks in just the right way, the long century-old counters still greet customers and there’s even a spool of string still hanging from the tin ceiling, used for wrapping brown paper parcels long before plastic bags existed.

Not only is Trousdale’s known as the nation’s oldest general store – but what makes it remarkable all these years later is that it has kept safe a treasure trove of history. From the old brass crank cash register to a collection of yardsticks which now adorn the door to the old meat cooler, it’s almost a social museum nearing two centuries old.

History And Nature Intertwine At Gould Lake Conservation Area

Gould Lake Conservation Area located just outside of Sydenham in Frontenac County is a natural summer haven. This day use area begs to be discovered with more than 20 km of trails across rolling and rugged terrain. The wetland, woods and shoreline are perfect for wildlife viewing along the way. Another neat feature is the throwback to another time when mica mines operated near Gould Lake

In fact, a number of old pits and a large boiler can still be seen on the Mica Trail on the Conservation Area property and mica I easily spotted sparkling from rock faces or along the trails edge! It’s for this reason that the Frontenac Arch Biosphere named the Mine Trail Loop at Gould Lake as an Amazing Place – a special place of historic and cultural significance. Cool off at the sandy pristine beach area after a day of hiking!
