Route 3 – Sandy Bottom Lake

Sandy Bottom Lake offers a variety of recreational experiences for the whole family. Raven Haven
Beachside Family Park is both a day and overnight recreational park owned and operated by the Municipality
of the County of Annapolis.

The park site offers camping that includes full service and unserviced tent/trailer sites, cabin rentals
and a hostel, supervised swimming, canoe, kayak and pedal boat rentals, washrooms, a canteen and picnic
facilities. Raven Haven is a member of Hosteling Canada and Hosteling International.
The park offers public access to the lake throughout the paddle season. It is open between mid June
to Labour Day weekend.

The lake, although densely populated in some areas for cottage development, has many natural and
secluded sections of shoreline that provide an opportunity for a quiet paddle. Sandy Bottom Lake is also the
connection to the Milford Lakes and Mersey River routes. During higher water, it is possible to paddle across
the lake, through Charlton Meadows, and with a few short portages, link into Lily Lake at Highway 8 and

Many prefer to explore the lakeshore perimeter, small coves and the island in the western section of
the lake. Charlton Meadows is a highlight for many paddlers, as once you paddle across the lake and enter
the narrows, you are in the middle of the “wilderness” where turtles and waterfowl can be observed. Due to
beaver activity, the narrows are sometimes blocked, necessitating a small lift. The Meadows are definitely
worth an exploration.
