So, as I sit here waiting for a furnace repairman rather than out on Cook's Bay, my thoughts are all about heat. In that mind frame, my wife asked me where we should camp for Canada Day. My top 2 choices are 6 Mile Lake and Restoule. Can any of you give me any feedback, positive or negative, about either of these parks? I'm also open to other suggestions but since it will only be a long weekend trip, distance is an issue. As for the fishing, I'd rather catch as many different species as possible rather than dozens of fish of 1 or 2 species. The particular species doesn't matter either -minnows, suckers, bass, walleye -all are good. Thanks in advance.

I can only speak to six mile lake. The fishing is great with multiple species to be caught. Have caught everything but a muskie in the lake. The early morning and late afternoon is the best to work the weeds along the shoreline. The camping is great with a very large camp ground

We went to six mile this summer, very nice park but we got a site we could see the lake from and the traffic going by on the roadway was brutal. Other than that it was a nice place! If we go again we'll be away from the road for sure. Just my 2 cents, but everyone likes different things!

Restoule is my favourite camping place. I've been the last 3 years in a row. I've caught bass, pike, musky, walleye and panfish. Stormy Lake right beside it and still in the park, is great fishing too.

Especially great area because it offers good variety of fishing for "big stuff" for me, but still bass and panfish for the kids. Also great campground, beach and hiking trails for the family.

I have been fishing and camping at restoule for almost 30 years. I have also been to six mile several times over the years. 10 out of 10 times i would choice restoule. Six mile is great for us for short 2 day trips for anything longer we drive the extra to restoule. Lake has some great fishing ,park is more secluded and less busy then 6 mile.You have lots of back country lakes to fish with little to no pressure on some of the lakes. walleye pike musky bass lake trout tons of water to explore with lots of crown land surrounding the lakes.park has some great sites on the water 2 beaches and some great hiking trail,plus north bay is only 40 minutes away for day trips.
