Crowe Lake, ON
The Crowe River is a river in eastern Ontario which arises in Haliburton County and flows south from Paudash Lake near Bancroft, through sparsely inhabited Precambrain Shield country in Peterborough County, and passes through a number of lakes including Tangamong Lake and Crowe Lake near Marmora. Here it enters Paleozoic limestone-plain country in Hastings County and continues south to join the Trent River at Crowe Bay in Northumberland County just north of Campbellford. Unusual outcroppings of Precambrian Shield through the limestone appear at Allan's Mills and just above Crowe Bridge. The river drains an area of about 2,000 km².
At one time, the river was used to transport logs down to sawmills at Marmora. The river powers several small hydroelectric generating stations.
At "The Gut" Conservation Area, the river flows through a steep narrow gorge, while at both "Callaghans Rapids" and Crowe Bridge Conservation Areas, it flows over smooth limestone and limestone steps; popular sites for springtime kayakers and summertime swimmers.
Tributaries include the North River and Beaver Creek. The river is named after the Crowe family - pioneers in that area.
