Hazelwood Lake is one of the closest inland lakes to the City of Thunder Bay. Located only 25 minutes from the City, this large, semi-wilderness area is perfect for full day family outings. Enjoy a refreshing swim at the beach, a relaxing evening of fishing and barbecuing or a leisurely walk along one of the many trails. In the winter you can explore the trails by snowshoe.

Hazelwood lake has more hiking opportunities than any of our other areas giving you yet another reason to come back to spend the day.

  • Orange Trail: An easy 2.5 km loop with beautiful views of the lake
  • Forest Community Trail: A 2.5 km loop that winds through the forest
  • Dam Trail: 1.5 km one-way trail follows the river and ends at an interesting dam
