Aaron Provincial Park is located near Dryden and the sandy beaches provide a playground for the clear, shallow waters of ancient Thunder Lake. 

Aaron is an ideal family stop for swimming and hiking trails. The trails wind through white cedar and aspen forests, and double as ski trails in winter.

Plants and Wildlife
The park's Thunder Lake is a remnant of the ancient glaciers that covered Ontario tens of thousands of years ago.  As these massive moving fields of ice shifted and melted, they left behind a huge lake called Agassiz.  Over the years, Lake Agassiz receded creating hundreds of smaller lakes, like puddles after a rainstorm.  
Fringing Thunder Lake, are mixed forests of aspen, jack pine, white cedar and balsam, typical of the boreal region.  The forest is home to moose, white-tailed deer and black bears.
