It’s hard to believe that at one time, the village of L’Amable (pronounced La-Mab) had horse racing, cricket fields, stage service and more, although some of the buildings do still stand northwest of the highway, off the Old L’Amable Road. Here you will find an old pine Presbyterian Church (circa 1881) and the first graveyard established in North Hastings, the remains of millworks and dams. The village was named after the lake, which took its name from young L’Amable Lavallee, a local aboriginal boy who tragically died near the falls at the lake’s inlet.

Robinson Lake Picnic Area
Just south of L’Amable, near the junction of Hwy 62 and Hwy 620, on the west side is a nice little lakeside picnic area.
