Nagagamisis

Biking

Cycling is available only on park roads. Mountain biking opportunities are available outside the park on the many bush roads winding through the forest.

Birding

Nagagamisis lies within the vast boreal forest region. This is often called the songbird nursery, as hundreds of bird species nest here each summer. Warblers are the most colourful and have the prettiest songs, but many other birds can be heard and seen in the park, including many types of woodpeckers, ducks, finches and flycatchers, as well as fishing birds like Great Blue Herons, Ospreys and Bald Eagles.

Boating

Enjoy the extensive boating opportunities on Nagagamisis Lake. Launch your boat and pull it up on shore, especially if you camp on one of the waterfront sites.

Canoeing

There are excellent canoeing opportunities on Nagagamisis Lake and Park Lake. Nagagami and Shekak Rivers both provide backcountry canoeing opportunities for experienced canoeists.

Fishing

Fish for Walleye, Northern Pike, Lake Whitefish and Yellow Perch, then clean your catch at a fish cleaning hut close to the fish smoker and playground.
