Magnetawan is a historical village in Canada. It is on the Trans Canada Trail, in the middle of a 78-km stretch.
Magnetawan is about 25 miles (40km) north of Burkes Falls, which sits right on Route 11 on your way to North Bay. From Toronto, take 400 N to 11N to Burkes Falls, and follow the signs to Magnetawan.
In the late spring and early summer, use light lures like Rapalas... Jitterbugs after dark on a calm night. Later in the summer, fish deeper with worms and crayfish. Ahmic is one of the most beautiful lakes in the area. 12 miles long - 43 miles of shoreline, much of which is pristine and not developed. There are places on the lake where you cannot see a cottage, a road or another boat.
The Downtown General Store is an old fashioned grocery store with wooden floors, candy racks, fishing equipment, clothes and gifts... It's been around for at least 100 years and hasn't changed much at all. If you ask, they'll drive your groceries down to the dock and load them. Ask Heinens to do that!
If you want a fantastic, cheap, friendly meal, visit the Magnetawan Inn... Right in the center of town. Ask for Susan... have some ice cream and simply relax.
There's a liquor store just down the street, but your best bet is to buy your liquor and beer when you cross the border at the duty free shop (if you're from the US).
