Charleston Lake Area Routes

For those who have visited Charleston Lake Provincial Park in the past, know what such a truly special and beautiful place it is.  Its geological features are unique in that Charleston Lake is being cradled by two distinct bedrock types: granite and sandstone.  The water of Charleston Lake overlooks the ridges and valleys created by the erosion of the ancient mountain ranges, which defines the Frontenac Arch region.

Explore this fantastic park, as it was once visited upon regularly thousands of years ago by the Native peoples of Canada.  These early nomads would travel across this area, following their seasonal pattern of hunting and gathering.  In fact, you can still portage across the 3,000 year old portage route, linking Charleston Lake to Red Horse Lake.
