MNR Road Closure Sign – Behind Capreol, Ontario

MNR_RoadClosure_Sign_Capreol_OntarioOne of our members came across another MNR Road Closure sign while hunting this fall and snapped a photo. There are a lot of good lakes, not accessable, by this road system anymore.

    Would like to know where this sign was posted I travelled up this road to get up to camp in Felix many times but did not see this sign, is it down by South end of Thor or by the Welcome Lake Road

      at least the ministry posted one here. The last fishing trip we tried to go on ended in a hurry when we discovered the decommissioned road system……no signs…just a road with deep dangerous areas because they pulled the culverts… waste of time, money, all the disappointment paid for by our license fees. Thanks m.n.r. I’ll be remembering this come election time….

      This is my photo.. The picture was taken coming south from the Tillie Lake road cuts, just before you get to Fire Lake road.

    I saw one of the OntORA signs at Lake Duval north of Blind River. I was in the area for this year moose hunt. We have a camp just south of Toosee Lake. We have been fishing from that camp for the last 10 years or so.
    What is that sign saying that the MNR to close that lake?

    Thanks

    My husband and I have had the same experiences. We enjoy fishing, hunting and camping behind Capreol as well as other places near where we live. We have noticed that many of the places we used to go with our sons are no longer accessible to us due to signs such as the one posted.

    I listened to your commentary on MCTV News the other day. I, too have been perturbed about MNRF’s actions at road closures….especially permanent ones, once logging has been finished. Temporary closure during harvesting operations may be good to protect the workers and their equipment….and protect recreationers on the roads from logging trucks. Did not this whole issue come about due to certain remote resorts crying about the problem with individuals coming into lakes (considered almost private domains) via their own transportation methods (e.g. ATVs, etc.). My take on this was that…..if said remote resort or fishing camp wants to ensure privacy for specific areas, then they should be forced to license the area….and pay for all the protection and other issues that forest industry does on their, often huge acreages, license areas. Currently, what kind of costs other than for their own purposes (only minimal land use tax paid to province) do remote fly-in resort?
