On July 4th, We’re camped on the north shore of Lake Huron in the Thessalon Municipal RV Park. The municipal tennis court behind city hall is paved with a strange rocky composition, apparently left over from a road project. The balls take on a strange spin when they hit the gravel.
We do some light maintenance, replacing a taillight and several other light bulbs. We’re roaming here so we turn off the cell phones and use the air card sparingly.
If you drive north from Thessalon on route 129, about 40 kilometers, you come to Wakomata Lake Road which leads to Camp Snowshoe. The camp, five kilometers down the road on a big isolated lake, rents cabins, boats, ATVs and snowmobiles. It stays open all year for ice fishing and snowmobiling.
The people in this area of Canada seem very friendly. We ask about renting a canoe and the owners tell us that they only rent to guests, so they offer us the use of one of their canoes at no charge.
If you want to get away from things any time of year on a lovely Canadian Lake, I can highly recommend Snowshoe Camp. They’re nice people. To make a reservation, call 705-206-0447 or go online to Snowshoe Camp.
