Ontario Marinas Directory




If fishing is your thing, then you've found the best place to go. Whether you're compelled to search out bass, walleye or northern pike; if you prefer to cast your line from the shore or from a boat, White Lake provides a fisherman's paradise that will bring you back to these abundant waters year after year.

You must have a valid Outdoors Card to fish in any season in Ontario. There is a free fishing week/weekend, call 1-800-387-7011.

For Fishing (license) and Hunting (White Lake is in Zone 18), refer to the provincial guidelines. Fishing licenses can be bought or renewed at the White Lake General Store, the White Lake Marina and some of the resorts.

There are a large number of fresh water fish species that are found in White Lake. The ones that are most pursued by the anglers are the Large and Small mouth Bass , Walleye (also known as Pickerel) , Northern Pike and Perch. There are healthy populations of all of these species. and loads of pan fish for the kids to catch right off the docks.

The varied waters of the middle section of the lake holds Walleye, Bass and Pike. The rocky points are a haven for many a Small mouth Bass. Then there is the weedy bays that hide the sulky Large mouths that explode from their hiding places engulfing your tackle. Those bays also hide Northern Pike and numerous other species. As with all species we encourage catch and release on these beauties.

The fishing season begins the second Saturday in May with the opening of Walleye and Northern Pike. Fishing for both Large and Small mouth Bass begins the third Saturday in June.

Our Lake by Norman Moore, White Lake: The Later Years

In the 1970's the Rule Curve, that is the target level throughout the year, set by MNR, was a low 2.5 and a high of 5.5 as measured by the White Lake Dam. The Rule Curve now is a low of 3.5 and a high of 5.0. The flushing action of the lake has been reduced by fifty percent.

The main argument for high water during the summer months is for easier boat access. The opponents of high water point out that their concern is for the health of the lake, which suffers from high water erosion.

Fisheries and Water Level Management Options for White Lake by MNR

Between 1940 and 1965, White Lake had a reputation as an excellent sport fishery. Form 1965 to 1990, the fishery fluctuated significantly. Fish populations are indicators which reflect water quality, habitat improvements or deterioration, water level changes and fish harvesting pressures.

For example, 78 cabins were recorded on White Lake in 1950. Today private homes, cottages, tourist cabins and tent & trailer sites number near 1,500.

Enticing information for vacation planning. White Lake residents should be proud!


Have had a cottage on the lake for some 20 years... can only access it by boat. Used the ice on and off dates to gauge when I might be able to access the cottage. I am sure a lot of others looked forward to seeing freeze/thaw dates.

Canadian Lake Loons Survey:

2007: 21 adults loons and 3 small young.

Are you causing harm?

People can harass and stress loons without even being aware they are doing so. While on the lake or shoreline keep an eye out for the following and, if seen, move away.

- A loon is splashing across the water, appearing to stand up
- A loon is vocalizing at you

Bringing your own supply of firewood to the lake this summer?
Please read this:

Firewood often contains insects and plant diseases. Visitors who bring firewood from home may accidentally spread those diseases that threaten Ontario's provincial parks and the health of our forests.

The Asian longhorned beetle and emerald ash borer are of particular concern. They are both recent arrivals to Canada and without natural controls here.

While the emerald ash borer is currently believed to be confined to southwestern Ontario and southeast Michigan, where it has killed millions of ash trees, the movement of firewood has been the main culprit in its rapid spread in both the U.S. and Canada over the past year. As a result, a quarantine has been imposed which prohibits the movement of firewood from Essex, Middlesex, Lambton and Elgin Counties, the municipality of Chatham-Kent and the U.S.A.

The Asian longhorned beetle has been found attacking hardwood trees between Vaughan and Toronto. Both insects can be easily spread in firewood, which may look normal, but still be infested with the insects.

How you can help:

-Do not move firewood, especially firewood obtained from areas under quarantine
-Obtain firewood from the area you're visiting
-Ask your supplier where their wood comes from.
-If you have questions call the CFIA at 1-800-442-2342 or go to

The Forests of White Lake by Robert E. Lee, White Lake: The Later Years

Most of the way around, the White lake shore is clothed in forest. Many of us have our homes or cottages among the trees, where we appreciate their cooling shade and shelter.

The fact that pretty much the whole area was cut over in the early 1800's, when the big pine forests were removed, is still relevant today. What grew back was often something different.


History & Culture

Waba Cottage, Museum & Gardens

The museum is full of memories from the past. Local families have been so generous in donating artifacts. We are very proud of our community volunteer force that helped, and continue to help maintain our Museum and Gardens showing ever-continuing support of our heritage. The buildings contain everything from Sunday's best china to farm harvesting equipment.

In 1975 a local resident of White Lake unearthed bones that were later determined to be from 11,500 years ago, belonging to a mature Bowhead whale, an arctic sea mammal. The original bones are at the National Museum of Natural Sciences in Ottawa, replicas of the bones are on display in the Waba Cottage Museum.

Arnprior & District Museum

The Arnprior & District Museum is situated in the former Post Office built in 1896. Based on a design by Thomas Fuller, who was the architect of the original Parliament Buildings in Ottawa (c. 1860), it was saved from demolition by the generosity of David and Jessie Gillies in the early 1960s. This designated building is now recognized as the symbol of the Town of Arnprior.

The Museum houses a great collection of artifacts and photographs that you can peruse at your leisure. Come and see the new Kenwood Mills exhibit, the 1928 fire engine, scenes of early 20th century domestic life, Charles Macnamara, our own ever-changing lumber exhibit, the museum's tribute to the Lair McNab and our most recent acquisitions which include an early 19th century canon and a major new building.

Our most celebrated artifact is the museum itself. This beautiful stone mill was built in 1855 by fur trader and Hudson’s Bay Company agent, John Lorne McDougall. Used originally as a grist mill, the building was renovated and reopened as a museum in 1969. Situated in picturesque O’Brien Park the mill cradles the second chute of the Bonnechere River and overlooks the town’s historic Swinging Bridge.

White Lake Village Beach

By far one of the prettiest views of the lake, and an excellent sandy beach, plus access to free parking, picnic tables and outhouses. Sorry, no overnight tenting allowed. While there is a fast water open dam next to the beach, we've seen children playing on the red warning buoys so there is no real danger.

Another great beach is in Burnstown if you want to enjoy a nice sandy beach and swimming in the Madawaska River (5 min. from White Lake Village Beach, small fee to park and boat launching).

Local Attractions

Bonnechere Caves

Under a hill of limestone, said by geologists to have been the bottom of a tropical sea 500 million years ago, the caves present a weird and wonderful sight. Stalactites, or rock icicles formed at the rate of one cubic inch in 150 years, hang from the ceiling and the handiwork of nature is enhanced by electric lights. Feel free to bring along your own flashlight and comb our walls and see the literally thousands of fossils that are embedded in our limestone walls.  Entombed in the rock and preserved forever can be seen fossils of coral and sea creatures alive long before the age of the Dinosaurs. Millions of years in the making, the Bonnechere Caves are a thrill for the sightseer. About 35 min. West of Renfrew.

Calabogie MotorSports

The Calabogie track has been designed to provide a challenging, safe and charismatic venue for amateur and club level performance driving enthusiasts.

The typical track user is the driver of a road going sports car or sports bike driving amongst small groups of similar performance vehicles in low intensity competitive or non-competitive conditions. Such drivers are typically part of a club group, often coordinated under the auspices of such clubs as the Porsche, Ferrari, Corvette one make associations or as part of commercially operated “Track Day” groups or regional sports car clubs. Many users are also drawn to the facility as customers of high performance driving schools.

Calabogie has been recognized as one of the most aesthetically pleasing driving facilities in North America thanks to the proximity of its woodlands, its adherence to the natural topography of the site and the sheer drama of its course design. It is North America's Premier Driving Experience.
