Govan Lake is in the northeastern region of the North Frontenac Parklands (below the south end of Norcan lake). It is located deep within the parklands. This lake offers a more remote setting with land access restricted to the Arcol Road (logging and utility line servicing trails) requiring vehicles with clearance. Govan Lake is home to 8 campsites situated sporadically throughout the lake and are mainly located on islands. There are 2 vehicle accessible campsites (aka drive-in sites). Both sites are big enough to occupy a small trailer.
Fishing on Govan Lake – Here you will find Walleye, Northern Pike, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass and Yellow Perch.
