Fortune Lake, Long Schooner Lake, and Round Schooner Lake
Located in the more remote northwestern region of North Frontenac Park Lands, Schooner lakes are host to 24 campsites with another 2 on Fortune.
Visitors to the Schooner lakes will soon realize they are in the highlands. Hike to the top of the sheer granite cliffs and you will feel as though you are sitting atop the world. These clear, deep lakes are home to a variety of fish species including lake trout. Explore the area around your campsite and discover an abundance of natural wildlife from deer to herons.
Schooner lakes (Round and Long) and Fortune lake are contained in a provincially designated Area of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI). The area is a provincially significant upland forest complex. Amateur geologists will appreciate the sheer, barren slopes and cliffs of granite on Schooner lake and marble atop the cliffs of Fortune lake. Regionally rare plants are found throughout the area.
