Old Baldy-Frontenac Arch

This 53.5 hectare (132.5 acre) property is located on the northeast shore of Charleston Lake. Old Baldy provides connectivity for wildlife to nearby Charleston Lake Provincial Park, Bay County Park and Leeder’s Creek/Wiltse Lake Crown Land. The property supports a mosaic of forests, surrounding a series of beaver ponds and marshes, and the area provides habitat for at-risk-species including Snapping Turtles, Eastern Wood-pewees, and Ribbon Snakes. Old Baldy gets its name from a natural rock formation that looks like a human head found on the cliffs overlooking Charleston Lake.
