What You'll Like :
This waterway park contains an incredible diversity of landscapes, from island-speckled lakes, to meandering rivers, bedrock uplands and expansive wetlands, as well as towering stands of old growth pine and rocky cliffs
Part of Temagami’s 2400km network of portages and waterways, the park contains segments of a number of canoe routes that link with other parks, conservation reserves and Crown land.
Archaeological evidence of the area’s rich Indigenous heritage dates back 6,000 years, and canoeists will travel on ancient portages or “nastawgan”.
Remnants of the horse logging days and old lumber camps are found along many of the lakes in the park
The trails in Obabika Lake Old Growth Forest take hikers through one of Temagami’s old-growth Red and White Pine stands, hundreds of years old and untouched by logging.
