Canoeing

Wabakimi Provincial Park offers canoeing opportunities in a world-class setting.  Canoeists in the park should be experienced, but have the choice of selecting trips that are calm and relaxing, or offer more adventure. Park staff and local tourist outfitters are more than happy to discuss your trip plans with you and help you select the route that suits you best.

Wabakimi boasts some of the best fishing in Northwest Ontario, including opportunities for trophy fish. Species such as walleye, Northern Pike, perch, whitefish and Lake Trout are found throughout the park.

Hunting

Hunting is only permitted in specific areas of the park, seasons, and locations. Contact the Park Office for more information.
Hunting is subject to Ontario’s Hunting Regulations.

Swimming

Surprises are around every corner in Wabakimi and many of our lakes boast beautiful beaches which are perfect for taking a relaxing swim after a long day paddling.

Winter Activities

Winter camping, ice fishing, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are permitted, but access is limited during the winter months. There are no groomed winter trails in the park.
Ice fishing is subject to Ontario’s fishing regulations.

Winter visitors should take extra precautions. Wabakimi’s isolated location means help is not nearby. Only those with significant winter camping experience should consider an overnight stay in the park.
