Fishing isn’t all there is to do along the French River. Remember, the river runs for 100 kilometers from Lake Nipissing to the Georgian Bay and that means there are plenty of things to do all along the river. In all, there are roughly 230 campsites along the river that you can take advantage of.

Most offer water-based activities that take full advantage of the river. Motorboats, canoes and kayaks can be seen all along the French River during the spring and summer months. Even in fall there are a few intrepid souls who enjoy the fall colours from the viewpoint of a boat. Several cottages can be found along the French River and if you are hunter, the French River region offers some of the best hunting in Ontario. Camping permits are required and many marinas offer access to the river if you feel like taking the boat out for a day on the water.
