Temiskaming Shores, a city in Northeastern Ontario is located along the southern edge of the Clay Belt area, near the Quebec border on the shores of Lake Timiskaming. It was created by the amalgamation of the town of New Liskeard, the town of Haileybury, and the township of Dymond in 2004.
The Municipality of Temiskaming Shores is a vital and thriving group of communities along the scenic western shore of Lake Temiskaming. This is the commercial hub of a huge agricultural and mining region. There are also several excellent hotels, restaurants, resorts and lodges to look after all the needs of the traveler.
One of the most popular gatherings is Summerfest, held each year over the Canada Day holiday. The event brings the community together for music, food and fun. Summerfest is also popular because of the annual Biker's Reunion. More than a thousand riders roar into town for a few days of fun, relaxation and charity rides.
The city also has a local heritage festival to celebrate the traditions and history that have grown up here. New Liskeard and Haileybury both have waterfront facilities and modern marinas. This is a key reason why so many boaters take advantage of a spectacular boat trip along the Ottawa River waterway. It allows boaters on that river to travel all the way north to Lake Temiskaming and New Liskeard. There are hydraulic trailers on the river that allow boaters to bypass the hydro dams and rapids. Boats up to 30 feet in length can be accommodated. Altogether the waterway offers more than 500 kilometres of scenic cruising.
The sun shines most of the time over this part of the North, but even when its gets cold, there is still so much to do and enjoy. Snowmobiling is a huge and popular way of life in the North. It is evident in Temiskaming Shores where local snowmobile clubs maintain more than 300 kilometres of groomed trails.
