For campers, Beauchêne’s “Bear Bay Campground” is a lovely wooded site with a beautiful beach about ten miles from the Lodge.
It is located on the north side of Bear Bay near the east end of Lake Beauchêne where it enjoys the prevailing onshore wind. The campground is approximately 35 kilometers from Temiscaming and is accessible by automobile by way of the Maniwaki road.
It is beautifully wooded with pine and other trees and is restricted to 5 well-spaced campsites, each of which has a picnic table and fronts on the lake.
A lovely sand beach runs along the whole shoreline in front of the campground.
Amenities include a bath house with hot and cold water, showers and flush toilets which make camping here a little more civilized.
Our campers usually bring their own boats which may be launched at the campground. Our floating dock will simplify loading up for your fishing excursions. Larger boats should be put in at the concrete ramp at the Lodge as Bear Bay has no boat launch or hook ups. Our campground keeper will check you in and will have fishing permits available.
This campground is restricted to a small number of tents or camper trailers, so call ahead – Reservations are required!
An access map will be provided with your reservation confirmation.
