Lake Shamineau is an extremely clean lake with excellent water clarity. The lake area is 1,626 acres with a maximum depth of 52 feet and an average depth of 17 feet. The shoreline circumference is 11.31 miles and the lake length is 3.13 miles. The lake supports a diverse fish population and offers many angling opportunities.

The resort has a beautiful beach, with a shallow, sandy swimming area and is a great swimming lake offering clean and clear waters. The resort overlooks the north shore of Lake Shamineau where Camp Shamineau owns about a mile of lakeshore. This offers guests a great view of the lake, with a scenic, undeveloped shoreline in the background! We hope you come see for yourself the true beauty of Lake Shamineau!
