Highway 11 cuts through the township intersecting all of the townships concession roads affording residents quick and easy access to that transportation artery. By the same token, it allows emergency responders quick and easy access if required. Kirkland Lake is less than a 30 minute drive north and Temiskaming Shores is just a little over 30 minutes to the south. On the west side of the township, Hwy 573 provides quick and easy access to the Town of Charlton and also connects with Hwy 11 at the South Wye.
With a country lifestyle there is an abundance of wildlife in the area. It is not unusual to see moose, bear, deer, wolves, coyotes, foxes, lynx, etc., along the concession roads, in fields, and even in your backyard. In the spring and fall, huge flocks of geese are regular visitors to township fields. A more recent addition to the township's plethora of wildlife has been sandhill cranes and raccoons. Although there are no lakes in Chamberlain Township, there are many lakes and rivers within a short drive for fishing and recreational opportunities.
