Haliburton Highlands

The Haliburton Highlands Water Trails (HHWT) Map Guides are a must-have for anyone planning on tripping and camping in the area. The maps are produced by the Township of Algonquin Highlands Trails Department in partnership with the Ministry of Natural Resources.  These Map Guides are the official and most up-to-date maps available for the Frost Centre and Poker Lakes areas.

About The Frost Centre Area:

The Frost Centre area encompasses approximately 26,500 hectares of rugged backcountry provincial crown, municipal and private lands comprised of mixed forests and 60+ lakes, some with cottages and others that are undeveloped. There are numerous canoe route possibilities, 171 interior canoe/boat-only access campsites and 70 portages. There are a limited number of road access campsites which are primarily found along the Sherborne Lake Access road.

This area has something to offer to all levels of canoeing/camping experience, skill and ability. It’s an ideal getaway for families and paddlers looking for two- to three-day trips.

The area can be accessed by 11 public access points, most of which are easily accessible off of Highway 35 North. Significant natural and aesthetically pleasing features can be found throughout the area, from waterfalls, to natural old growth forest, to the Black River head water wetlands. Some notable areas are two conservation reserves - the Clear Lake conservation reserve is an area representative of old growth Hemlock forest and is protected from future logging operations. The Dawson Ponds Conservation reserve was established to protect provincially-significant floral features.
