Featured Experience
The fish are biting
L&A is an angler's paradise. With over 100 lakes in the area, you know there’s going to be an abundance of fish! See if you can reel in a Walleye, a Smallmouth Bass or a Northern Pike. Bragging rights go to the one who hooks the biggest trophy.


We’ll supply the water, you bring the boat!

Launch from one of our public boat launches (we have more than a few!) or dock at Loyalist Cove Marina in Bath or Conservation Park in Napanee and enjoy the sights. With so many places to explore, you’re going to need more than a day!

Scuba diving
