Activities

Camping & Accomodation

Car Camping

The campground is perfect for those who need access to electricity and amenities. The almost 100 campsites offer everything you could ask for, with one-third being able to accommodate large trailers or tents only! There are water taps close by in case your hydration needs arise during outdoor activities like hiking & fishing; comfort stations provide relief from fatigue after spending hours outdoors playing on the many different types of terrain available (from easy paved paths which allow people without disabilities quick accessibility around town); while laundry facilities will make sure that dirty clothes are clean before they leave home again – this time hopefully paired up more appropriately than their first trip into laundromats 🙂

Group Camping

Aaron has one group campsite.  The site accommodates 15 to 50 people.  Water taps and vault toilets are on site. The area is within walking distance of a comfort station, the beach, and hiking trails.
Reservations can be made online or by phone, or by calling the park directly at (807) 938-6534.

Hiking, Biking & Paddling

Hiking

Aspen Trail – 2km, moderate 
The Aspen Trail will introduce you to stands of boreal forest consisting of aspen, birch, Jack Pine, Balsam Fir and spruce trees. Walk through the remnants of the terrific wind storm of 1973 and over bare rock surfaces scarred by glaciers which melted 10 to 15 thousand years ago! Look for signs of White-tailed Deer, such as browsed branches, tracks and pellets. All the while you will be entertained by Aaron’s 26 species of warblers, as well as other boreal songbirds.

Eastern White Cedar Trail – 1.2 km loop, easy
A stroll down this trail will help you appreciate the history and ecology of Aaron. You will walk through large, historic stands of trees, hike along the shores and wetlands of Thunder Lake and climb up a slope to a clay plain. See how many species of amphibians, mammals, birds, trees, flowers, lichens, and mosses you can spot along the way.

Biking

Biking is a popular way to wander through Aaron and view the Eastern White Cedars that line the campground roads. Children are reminded to wear a helmet when biking.

Paddling

Boating

Boating is permitted on Thunder Lake is the perfect place to go when you want a day on the water. Whether it’s windy or not, there will always be an opportunity for fun with all your friends!
