Lake Rossignol is the largest fresh water lake in Nova Scotia.  It provides the canoeist with the opportunity to enjoy a remote adventure with a true wilderness feel.  Damming of the Mersey River and flooding of the upland in 1928 created the modern Lake Rossignol.  Ten smaller lakes merged to create a unique area full of interesting rock formations and a vast shoreline littered with extraordinary, often massive, pieces of driftwood.
