Obabika River

Backcountry Camping

1. The Experience:

Obabika River Provincial Park is part of the Temagami region and offers connections to other provincial parks in the area. This park offers an incredible diversity of landscapes, from meandering rivers to island-speckled lakes, and rocky cliffs to expansive wetlands.

Angling is popular in this park with opportunities to catch Trout, Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, and Northern Pike. Bird watching and wildlife viewing are excellent in the area, as the diversity of tree species provide a variety of habitats. Wildlife viewing is common throughout the park.

Fine sand beaches, slit shorelines, and rocky headlands offer swimming opportunities and access to the water. There is a system of day-use hiking trails spread through the old growth forest area, many of which require a full day or more to explore.

There are over 100 marked campsites in the park, as well as 10 marked portages. Most campsites have box privies.
