Description

The camp is situated on Little Clear Lake in a fully wooded area with lots of wild life. Camp Wirribara has a hall with a large kitchen and dining area, two large sleep cabins with a separate alcove for leaders, one small meeting/sleeping cabin, indoor male and female washrooms accessible by wheelchair, and kybos. All buildings are equipped with propane heaters and lights. Electricity can be provided by generator. Sandy beach with two docks form a swimming area. The Ministry of Natural Resources stocks the lake yearly with trout. Although enough area is cleared out for some thirty tents with six fire pits, space abounds for many more. A large cleared field exists nearby along with many trails and lakes in the area. Great place for a base camp from which to do overnight hikes. Camp is available year round. During the winter months the last 9 km is accessible by snowmobile only.

The camp was built for Junior Rangers in the 1940s. In 1980, Nipissing District purchased the buildings and reached a Land Use Agreement with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. The land will remain Crown Land as it is a Natural Historic Geological Area. The camp sits on the Boulter Esker, the longest in Ontario. Little Clear Lake is a kettle lake.
