Out of 250,000 freshwater lakes in the province of Ontario, Lake Nipissing is the fourth largest--excluding the Great Lakes. While a very large lake, it is also very shallow with an average depth of 4 to 5 metres. Boaters have to watch out for the many sandbars  found along its uneven, irregular shoreline, the perimeter of which is approximately 1100  km. In its deepest part the lake has a depth of 52 metres. It is about 65 km long and approximately 25 km wide. Dotted throughout the lake are many islands, some inhabited by summer residents, others inhabited only by nesting cormorants.  Its size alone makes Lake Nipissing a valuable natural resource. But, in addition, it is home to over 40 species of fish and is the natural habitat of many birds and small animals.

It’s also home to many people who inhabit the cities, towns, and villages along its shores.  Because of its natural beauty and the rich bounty found in its depths, Lake Nipissing is the heart of the tourist industry that feeds the economy of this area. But, it is also a source  of true pride for the people who call it home.
