Welcome to Camp Conewango, the Four Season Resort on the north shore of Lake Talon. The Camp is within the Mattawa River Provincial Park and surrounded by the natural beauty of Crown Land and has much to offer for the entire family.
There is an abundance of clear lakes and remote wilderness areas to explore. For those who enjoy wildlife: our neighbours include deer, bear, wolf, fox and all the small creatures. You can paddle a canoe or kayak along historic waterways and follow the same route taken by the voyageurs.
For fishing enthusiasts, Lake Talon offers a large variety of fish. From our door you can hike, ride an ATV, or mountain bike on miles of marked trails. For the hunter or explorer this is deer country with miles of trails and logging roads which allow you to see wildlife in its natural environment.
