Marsh Bay Resort is a quiet family style camp nestled on the shores of the Montreal River, just off Highway #11. Open year round, our services include cottages, camping and trailer sites, fishing, hunting and snowmobiling. The Montreal River is a calm body of water and is one of the main tributaries of the Ottawa River System.
A Perfect Location
Our camp is in a peaceful rural setting, but we are only a few minutes from all amenities. For the shoppers in the crowd, we have modern malls and four large grocery stores in Temiskaming Shores. Our four local towns all have liquor stores and offer all kinds of dining, ranging from fast food outlets to good family restaurants. Churches of almost every denomination are found within a few minutes' drive.
Great For Family Getaways
Discover this great family destination this summer, we also cater to motorcycles, especially during the year round Biker's Reunion in Temiskasming Shores. Visit us in the winter time to ride the wonderful snowmobile trails throughout Ontario's Wilderness Region - some of the best in Canada, or skiing - cross-country & downhill.
Our RV Sites are rented on a nightly, weekly, monthly and seasonal basis. Our RV sites provide power (20 and 30 amp), water and sewer hook-ups. There are shower and washroom facilities available within easy access of all the RV and camping sites. Arrangements can be made to store your RV at the resort during the winter months. Grass coverage allows for a pleasant stay with less mess in your camper.

Marsh Bay Resort is located on the Montreal River, which is home to many species of fish including Walleye, Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Perch, Rock Bass and White Fish. The river depths vary from 5 to 70 feet, providing a good variety of structure and habitat for the many fish. You can expect to catch more than enough fish for shore lunch and dinner. There is the occasional trophy-sized fish to be found in the Montreal River, but guests are encouraged to return these to the river and only keep the fish that will fit easily into the frying pan.
All of our cottages are non-smoking. Cottages #4, #5, #6 & #7 are pet friendly. Pets are not permitted in Cottages #1, #2, or #3. The cottages have fully equipped kitchens, 3 piece baths, living room areas, screen porches, BBQ's and picnic tables. Pillows, comforters and blankets are provided for each bed. Guests are to bring their own sheets and towels or request that linen be provided at an additional nominal fee.

Marsh Bay has three canoes and one kayak to rent to allow you to explore the Montreal River in a quiet, eco-friendly way. There are also fishing areas that are difficult to reach by boat, because of the number of submerged trees and rocks, but are easily accessible under the power of a paddle.
We also have a boat launch on site. You are welcome to bring your own boat and motor or rent one of ours.
Our Guest Recreation Room provides guests with a place to gather and play board games, or watch a show on the satellite television. Wireless internet is also accessible in the Guest Recreation Room.+ More
