It’s the last weekend of July and we say get ready to cast a line. Many of the parks featured this week have excellent fishing just off the shore or get adventurous and try your luck out on the water.
Wakami Lake Provincial Park sits very near the “height of land.” That is, the place where water either flows to the Great Lakes and eventually out to the Atlantic Ocean, or north to Hudson Bay and the arctic watershed.
It’s also a place where the southern forests of Sugar Maple and Yellow Birch give way to the trees of the boreal forest. Poplar, White Birch, Jack Pine, Balsam Fir and Black Spruce begin to dominate here.
Bald Eagles and Osprey are commonly seen fishing the productive waters of the lake. Wakami Lake is one of the best Walleye lakes in the northeast. Wildlife is abundant. And so is the quiet…
Celebrate the summer solstice surrounded by nature.
We’ve got plenty of waterfront campsites available for the weekend, and a few cabins too!

Fishing season’s not here yet, but that’s no reason not to plan your dream getaway now.
If you’re planning a northern adventure in 2019, we’ve got a few fishing trips to add to your bucket list:
Bog. Swamp. Fen. Marsh. Muck, mud and mire…
It sounds terrible, doesn’t it? When movie directors want to make things hard for their characters, they sometimes pick a wetland to chuck them into – think Humphrey Bogart in the classic movie “African Queen”, where he struggles day after day to pull his boat through an impenetrable swamp.
Wetlands get a bad rap, but they are hugely important to all of us.
Without them, things would be a lot more difficult on old Planet Earth. Like big sponges, they store water from snows and rains, and then let it out when things get dry. They provide rich habitats for plants and animals to live in, and they create “biodiversity”: the variety of life.
