17.8: Kerr Lake

Kerr Lake 1—like Sandy Lake (figure 17.7)—is a water-filled depression in moraine covering Riding Mountain. Also like Sandy Lake, it is just south of the boundary 2 of Riding Mountain National Park 3. It supports cottage developments, seen on the east shore of the lake 4. The lake offers good fishing and the surrounding woods and marshes support hunting (outside the national park) for big game, moose, elk, deer, and bear, as well as smaller game, rabbit, duck, and goose. The lake is approached from the east by a gravel road 5 that leads to a trail that wanders along the east shore 6.
