"French River: Richly endowed with natural beauty, historical interest and sporting advantages, French River is one of the most desirable vacation districts in Ontario. Within the last few years it has become highly popular because of the establishment here of a Bungalow camp, which, charmingly located on a rocky bluff, commands a magnificent panoramic view of the river for some miles. The camp consists of a number of small bungalows accomodating one, two or four people, and a large central building for dining and recreational purposes. It is close to good fishing grounds, and a supplementary camp has been established at another fishing spot, Pine Rapids, at some distance from the main camp."
