The Waterfront

Swimming Area

We have a beautiful waterfront property, which gets extensive use through the summer.  The beach area is open for use each day during family camp, 1–5 pm, weather permitting. During this time lifeguards will be on duty and all campers must obey their rules and instructions.  There is no swimming permitted within the buoy lines when the lifeguards are not on duty. The family camp swimming area is unsupervised and is open for your use, but is “use at your own risk” and parent supervision is required.

We offer swimming lessons Monday to Friday during family camp.  $30 for the week.  Space is limited.


Canoes, kayaks and sailboats are available for rent.  A liability waiver must be signed.  See the lifeguards to sign out boats and make payments.  Boats are not available for rent during kids camp programming.

All campers must wear a PFD (Personal Flotation Device) when boating.  Please be sure to find the correct size and wear it properly.  We ask that when you return PFDs, you hang them neatly and help up to keep the area tidy.  Please use all PFDs only for their intended purpose.

There is great fishing at Camp Mishewah, both in Round Lake itself and the nearby creek.  You may find Lake Trout, Yellow Perch, Lake Whitefish, Burbot, Northern Pike, Longfin Smelt, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, and Walleye in the lake.  We often hold kids fishing contests during family camp.  Steve Balzer is always glad to chat with any campers about fishing at Mishewah.

Canadian residents between the ages of 18 and 64 years must purchase a valid fishing license to legally fish in Ontario, however, there are four Ontario Family Fishing Events through the year (two during the summer), a province-wide opportunity for Canadian residents to fish Ontario waters without the otherwise mandatory fishing version outdoors card.

Family Fishing Event dates are:

  • Family Fishing Weekend in February (February 15-17, 2020)
  • Mother’s Day Weekend in May (May 9-10, 2020)
  • Father’s Day Weekend in June (June 20-21, 2020)
  • Family Fishing Week in July (July 4-12, 2020)
