There’s more to Waskesiu than a lake and some beach. Every year we set out to try and find new rivers we haven’t kayaked yet. It’s become almost a family tradition! One of our classic favourites is the Waskesiu River, just north of the townsite on your way to the Marina. There’s a nice small parking lot there you don’t have to abandon your car. It’s a quick portage to the river and it’s shallow enough to wade in a bit! We will usually just paddle as far upstream as we can on that river and then ride the current back. It’s a popular spot, but it’s become one of our favourites. PA National Park hasn’t run out of rivers for us to ride yet, and I don’t think it ever will!
