  • Miquelon Lake not suitable for swimming

    July 1, 2017

    • Through natural processes, the lake at Miquelon Lake Provincial Park has reached a point where swimming is not a favourable activity. This is due to large amount of vegetation, algae (not blue-green algae), insects and birds.
    • Park visitors are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity this natural process offers to view shorebirds, aquatic vegetation and aquatic insects.  You can also participate in visitor services events to learn more about this unique area.
    • Check out the other summer recreation options at Miquelon Lake.
