Location Location

At a point 6.4 kilometres beyond the Sand Lake Gate, turn right (north) and proceed 8.3 kilometres to the south end of McManus Lake. Note that travel below McManus Lake on the Petawawa River is prohibited because of the military artillery range, and travel upstream is difficult beyond Whitson Lake. This access point serves chiefly as a pick-up spot for canoeists descending the Petawawa River from Lake Travers (Lake Travers Access Point). Latitude and longitude of Access Point: 45.945182°, -77.606144°
