For paddlers, the French
River is an enticing, adventurous wilderness river for all level
skills. Novice canoeists can spend a leisurely day on its calmer,
smoother and more sheltered stretches, navigating among grassy
islands, bays while scanning the riverbanks for turtles, beavers,
otters, waterfowl, moose, black bear, while listening for the elk
cows bugling, and even see the occasional deer.
Flat Rapids and Dallas Rapids
add challenge to the more experienced rafters and canoeists on the
French River. For those wanting the adventure of portaging to
various levels of the French River or Georgian Bay there are areas
of rapid white water that is full of speed and turbulence,
especially in spring, when swirling, swelling currents grind river
stones deep into the limestone riverbed below the falls such as
Recollet Falls, Meshaw Falls, Sturgeon Chutes, Big Bear Chutes,
Horseshoe Falls, Bass Lake, rapids such as the First Flat Rapids,
Second Flat Rapids, Oullette Rapids, Five Finger Rapids consisting
of Little Pine Rapids, Big Pine, Rainy, Double, Blue Chute, Little
and Big Parisienne Rapids, and the Voyageur Channel all followed by
an easy paddle to smoother, calmer areas on the French River or
A word of caution to boaters
and canoeist is that one must be experienced, hire a guide, or know the
rapids well before venturing through any of the swift water. There
are times when water levels in these areas are not navigable by any
experienced guide or person. Respect for the river and knowledge
will provide wonderful experiences for all.
Pristine nature awaits you in
the protected wilderness area of Northern Ontario out of doors.
Canadian vacationers can view a red fox slithering along the
shoreline, see beaver, hear the eastern timber wolf howling, watch
with awe the soaring bald eagles, hear the cry of the loons with
their wings flapping on take off, ducklings trailing their mother
across the river while dunking for minnows flashing by, turtles
sunning atop a dead head stuck in the river beds, geese honking
during their migration, mushrooms bursting through granite rock and
tree falls, gigantic blueberries awaiting a child's twinkling eyes
with a big purple smile, black bear cubs swinging in the trees while
their mother throws fish from the French River below. These are just
a few memories and wildlife the guests of the French River
have experienced while exploring, boating, hiking,
fishing, or canoeing the famous Heritage French River Park.
Moose, black bear, deer, and an ever increasing protected number of
elk are roaming the forests of Ontario along the French River and
the Northeast shore of Georgian Bay. The French River Resorts
Association has assisted in the elk restocking program. Contact one
