Lake Nipissing

When the glacial ice began to retreat about 9000 BC, the Nipissing Basin formed an eastern extension of Georgian Bay and drained into the Ottawa and Mattawa Rivers. With the gradual tilting of the land, the lake began to drain westward some 7,000 years later, thereby creating the French River.
