Lovesick Lake Park

#4738 Highway 28, K0L 2H0, (705) 654-3587

You are now travelling on Lovesick Lake. Although the beauty of this lake alone is enough to play on one’s heartstrings, the name draws on a 19th century tale of unrequited love. It is said that a handsome young native man, Richard Fawn, had fallen in love with a young Irish settler, named Katherine. After many unsuccessful attempts to charm the young woman, Richard withdrew to a small island on this lake. After spending some time alone on the island lamenting his lost love without food or sleep, Richard returned to his village where his friends named this “Lovesick Lake”; a name that lives on today.
