Loon Call Lake is in a provincial park. Learn all about it here.
Loon Call Lake is located within Kawartha Highlands Signature Site Park (KHSS) also known as Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park, a provincially designated park. Please refer to ontarioparks.com/park/kawarthahighlands to become familiar with the park and its rules. It is your responsibility to know and abide by these rules.
It is important to know that:
- The landing is governed by Park rules.
- Your cottage and many of the fire routes are within the Park.
- Generally, the township controls construction and permits on the land as well as docks. The Park also has oversight on docks. Before commencing any construction, it is best to check with the township (located in Apsley) and the Park (located in Bancroft).
- No camping is allowed on Loon Call Lake. Campsites (by permit) are allowed on nearby lakes.
- There is no parking on Fire Routes or on Anstruther Lake Road during the winter.
- Access permits
- Cottagers accessing their own property, via a Fire Route, do not require an access permit.
- Cottagers using the Landing to access their property from May 1 to Thanksgiving require a special access permit and can obtain one free of charge from The Kawartha Highlands Park office by calling (613) 332-3940 x261.
- Cottagers using the landing for a very short period (for example to launch a boat) do not require an access permit.
There is a public landing at the north east end of the lake. It can be used to launch boats and is a KHSS park day use area. It has a park sign which explains the cost of day use (for activities such as picnics, fishing). There is no overnight camping at the landing.
