The Missinaibi River is one of the longest and most famous canoe routes in the Hudson Bay watershed – 500 km of whitewater river, from the Arctic watershed divide down to James Bay.
This summer, our Northeastern Resource Stewardship Crew traveled 185 km of that river working to maintain Missinaibi Provincial Park‘s backcountry.
Check out this video of their travels:
Our stewardship crews do some truly amazing work protecting the beauty of our provincial parks.
Planning a trip?
There are five major canoe routes located within Missinaibi, with over 75 associated campsites. These are very remote sites; amenities are rustic (a privy toilet, a fire ring and some tent spots), so self-reliance and backcountry experience is essential.
Fish for such species as walleye, northern pike, whitefish and small-mouth bass throughout the park. Missinaibi Lake has been a fishing destination for anglers from all over the world, but still remains uncrowded and wild.
These campers had a fantastic time exploring the Mattice to Moosonee route through some of the most spectacular scenery on the river, including Thunderhouse Falls, Stone Rapids and Hell’s Gate.
