Acanthus is an unincorporated place and former railway point in geographic Deacon Township in the Unorganized South Part of Nipissing District in northeastern Ontario, Canada.[1] Acanthus is located within Algonquin Provincial Park on Cedar Lake on the Petawawa River.

It lies on the now abandoned Canadian National Railway Beachburg Subdivision,[2] a section of track that was originally constructed as the Canadian Northern Railway main line, between the divisional point Brent to the west and Odenback to the east; it had a passing track.
