The Rock Pine is located on Frenchman's Bay which is part of the Marten River waterway system.  The bay connects to Marten River and (little) Marten Lake by way of a very large culvert that goes under Hwy 11.   Small boats with a low drag have no problem maneuvering between the two bodies of water under the bridge. The nearby Provincial Park is accessible from our docks just by following Marten River north. 


(little) Marten Lake feeds into (big) Marten Lake which then connects to Bruce and McPhee Lakes further east.  Wicksteed Lake has a dam so is only accessible by a boat launch that is just a short 5 minute drive away.  

These lakes and rivers are considered some of the best fishing waterways around. There is plenty of lake trout, walleye, pike, bass, perch, pickerel and whitefish with the occasional sturgeon to be found. 


The Temagami area (which includes Marten River) is also considered the

Canoe Tripping Capital of the World.
