Wabakimi Provincial Park is the world's largest wilderness canoe reserve... millions of acres and bigger than Yellowstone! With its rare woodland caribou and remote rivers, Wabakimi embraces elements of the rugged Canadian Shield and boreal forests. Paddle into solitude on the 12,000 lakes within the park. There are over 2,000 kilometers of lake and river canoe routes in the park. Some of the major canoe routes include the Allanwater, Flindt, Pikitigushi, and Ogoki Rivers, and while most of these rivers offer whitewater opportunities, for the more timid, almost all river obstacles are by-passed by portages. This vast wilderness is accessible by canoe, train or float plane. Canoe outfitters can assist you in planning a trip into this vast area of untouched wilderness. Fishing for walleye, northern and trout is exceptional. Wabakimi Wilderness Park is adjacent to other Ontario Provincial Parks. These adjacent Canoeing Parks are:
Kopka Waterway Park
Adjoining Wabakimi Park's southern boundary, the Kopka is a picturesque river of whitewater and scenic waterfalls, interspersed with sizeable lakes, and terminates at Lake Nipigon.
Brightsand Waterway Park
An excellent canoeing river, the Brightsand adjoins Wabakimi Park (and the Allanwater River) from the south, and is accessible from the Graham Road, which runs north from Highway 17 just west of Upsala.
Albany Waterway Park
This long river runs borders the northerly tip of Wabakimi and provides a river canoeing experience. The experienced canoeist can follow this waterway all the way to Hudson Bay if he chooses.
