Boating - Motorized

With over 500 lakes on the Ottawa and many of these lakes are large enough for motorized boats.  Fishing is very popular as well as waterskiing.  Most lakes have boat landings available to the public.  Black River Harbor, one of only two harbors in the forest service system, provides a boat landing and docking providing access to Lake Superior.
