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.
