Exploring Lake Temiskaming
Marinas & Boat Landings
There are two marinas situated in the City of Temiskaming Shores. One is located in the former town of Haileybury and the other, in New Liskeard. They are both fully serviced. The Haileybury marina includes 176 slips – 92 of them feature water and hydro. In New Liskeard, the marina includes 106 slips – 80 feature water and hydro.
There are many beaches in the communities that make up Temiskaming Shores, Cobalt and area. Lake Temiskaming itself features two beaches in Temiskaming Shores alone – New Liskeard Beach and Haileybury Beach. The beach in Haileybury is staffed with lifeguards in the summer and even features an exciting waterslide and a kid-favourite waterpark activity that many have dubbed “The Mushroom”. Another favourite beach in the area is Bass Lake in Coleman Township, just a few minutes’ drive outside of the Town of Cobalt.
Restaurants & Picnics
Pack your lunch and enjoy a nice picnic along Lake Temiskaming! There are plenty of picnic tables situated along the New Liskeard Beach – and they’re just steps away from a mini-putt and a children’s playground, too! In the former town of New Liskeard, close to Lake Temiskaming, there are a variety of places to eat – Big Scoops, as the name suggests, serves super-servings of ice cream, along with other treats that include poutines and hot dogs. Rooster's Bar & Grill offers in-restaurant and patio seating for folks who wish to enjoy a fancier meal and Tim Hortons is just a short walk away from the beach in New Liskeard. You can also enjoy hot (and cold!) coffee, tea and local baked goods in downtown New Liskeard’s favourite independently-owned bookstore, Chat Noir Books. Haileybury’s beach is just a few minutes’ walk away from R U Hungries, serving homemade salads, delicious hamburgers and poutine, cold beverages and ice cream while offering comfortable seating. Just across the street is the very popular Tri Town Pizzeria.
Conveniently located just along the Lake, you will find the Waterfront Inn in downtown New Liskeard, right beside Rooster’s Bar & Grill. In the former town of Haileybury, steps from the beach you will find the Haileybury Beach Motel and the Leisure Inn. Not a far walk from the beach, the Presidents' Suites are located throughout the residential parts of town. Offering top-notch service and friendly staff, those who provide accommodations in Temiskaming Shores are very proud of their region and always look forward to welcoming each and every one of their guests.
