Visiting the Area
Visit the Twp of McGarry
The McGarry township includes the communities of Virginiatown and Kearns. It is situated on the border with Quebec to the east, along Highway 66 between Kirkland Lake and Rouyn-Noranda. Highway 66 was rerouted in 2017 due to concerns of collapse due to aging mine shafts under the existing road.
Being situated on Larder Lake, and being home to large amounts of anglers, the Larder/ McGarry Lions Club hosts an annual fish derby consisting of prizes for the largest pike, trout, and pickerel. There are also events for children, including catfish mini-derby and fish fry.
With a playground and several docks and boat launches, McGarry is the perfect place for a family day on the lake, be it for tubing, skiing, or fishing.
Located within minutes of the Kanasuta Ski Hill, McGarry is fantastic for those who enjoy the winter months.
