Restoule is located south of Lake Nipissing, and north of Ontario’s famous cottage country. Despite being north of this area, Restoule is a major centre for cottages, as is the entire Loring-Restoule region. The largest nearby city is North Bay 65 kilometres by road northeast of Restoule.
Restoule is a 9 kilometre drive southeast of Restoule Provincial Park. There is only one way to get into Restoule, and that’s on Highway 534 from the east. There’s a secondary route from the west from Dokis territory and leads into town on Hawthorne Rd. Entering the village, one can see the main General Store off the highway on the right. The main centre of the community however can be found off Highway 534, across the Restoule River. On this side of the river, there is a Royal Canadian Legion (Branch #639), a Lion’s Club, Community Centre, Outdoor Hockey Rink, Play structures, and a United Church. The Pentecostal Corner Gospel Church is 5 km east of the village at the intersection of Hwys. 524 and 534. There are several housekeeping cottages, camps and lodges.
Cottages dot the shores of both Restoule Lake north of town and Commanda Lake south of town. Also dotting the rolling countryside are various farms. Most of all, the scenery is dominated by majestic forests on the Canadian Shield.
Restoule has broadband Internet access and cell phone service provided by Bell. As of August 2020, there is Fido/Rogers coverage (albeit ‘roaming’) in the area, including at nearby Restoule Provincial Park.
