Hike through dense forest and forested wetlands and watch for moose, bears, deer, fishers, ruffed grouse. Look up to see osprey nests in the tops of swamp-killed trees and scan the water's edge for heron.
A beaver dam at the rock fracture controls the water level in Bucke Lake and affects Grundy Lake, Gut Lake and Nisbet Creek. From several lakes in this park off the Trans-Canada Highway, you can paddle to the voyageurs' route along French and Pickerel rivers into Georgian Bay.
Beaches and smooth rocky shores provide excellent swimming. And mixed forest marks this area as the boundary between north and south. Hiking trails explore the forest.
