I'm planning a canoe trip in the Matawa River Park from Trout Lake (leaving from Portage Park - where I gather from my Chrismar Adventure map that there is overnight parking), and since there is no overnight parking at the Pimisi Bay Picnic Area, I will leave a car at Blanchard's landing.

Looking at Google maps, there appears to be quite some development going on at Blanchard's Landing (Country Cabins and Campground, Talon Lake Campground and Marina). Can one still park a care at Blanchard's Landing without paying fees or having it towed away. Is there any free parking further downstream, short of Mattawa?

Thanks for your help!

Blanchard's Landing is a public launch, and is still free. Parking is minimal, but I've never seen it full.

Bumping this old thread in hopes of getting some info as well. Does anybody know of the status of overnight parking here? Hoping to leave a vehicle overnight Saturday to start the Mattawa at the end of Lake Talon.

you can check with the Township of East Ferris about parking at the Portage Park.: http://eastferris.ca/ContactUs.aspx

Blanchard Land contact: Township of Bonfield.: https://bonfieldtownship.com/contact-us/

You may run into heavy ice still on the Mattawa River. All our lakes are still ice-bound.

also depending on where you are coming from there have been many multiday highway closures due to flooding.

Thanks for those contacts, I'll try them out tomorrow. Hopefully the ice is gone by the time I go around the second weekend of May! Would be coming in from Sudbury, so no worries about the washout on Bisset Creek
