This lake is located in the northeastern region of the North Frontenac Park Lands (below the south end of Norcan lake). Smaller than its southern counterparts, this lake offers a more remote setting with land access restricted to Crown roads (logging and utility line servicing trails) requiring off-road capable vehicles.
Govan is the largest of lake in this northeastern region, but still relatively small by comparison to the other North Frontenac Park Lands lakes.
10 campsites are located on Govan Lake.
From Road 509 just east of Ompah turn onto Canonto Road. From Canonto turn left onto Arcol Road (between Palmerston and Canonto lakes). Follow Arcol Road, along the way Arcol changes from a secondary township road to a Crown road, and stay on Arcol to Hydro Lane. At Hydro Lane turn right. Follow it to the 3-way junction, Hungry Lake is here, carry on staying to the right to reach Mair Lake then Govan lake.
