Murphys Point Provincial Park - 2014

Murphys Point Provincial Park is a provincial park near Perth, Ontario. The 1,239-hectare (3,060-acre) park features natural areas prepared for hiking or skiing as well as access for day-use, camping and water sports at Big Rideau Lake. Facilities include a Park Store, Visitor's Centre and several "Comfort Centres", with flush toilets, showers and laundry facilities for the multi-day camper.
It also hosts the restored early 20th-century "Silver Queen" mica mine, the ruins of a sawmill and several historic pioneer buildings including the Lally Homestead. The area was mined for mica, feldspar, and apatite. During the summer season guides tours are offered to visitors who would like to see the inside of a pioneer-style mine, you may also see what energy source they used, what the mine looks like and wildlife that lives there. They also do ghost walk alongs and see exactly what they do. Source - Wikipedia
