Chapleau

Welcome to the friendliest town in the North. Situated in the heart of the Boreal Forest, near the height of land separating the Atlantic and Arctic Watersheds, a wilderness vacation playground awaits you. Chapleau is known as the gateway to the Chapleau Crown Game Preserve. The Preserve is an area of more than 700,000 hectares, home to wildlife viewing stations and drive-in tourism opportunities.

The area is served by numerous camps, lodges and campgrounds. Our district contains four provincial parks with camping facilities. The area’s three fly-in services are ready for take-off if you are seeking a remote vacation. If you prefer to rest and relax in town, our motels or bed & breakfasts will cater to you. Ontario’s finest wilderness is at our doorstep we offer some of the best fishing, hunting, canoeing and boating.

Chapleau was crowned Canada’s Ultimate Fishing Town 2011 by the World Fishing Network. Chapleau has a wide variety of fish species to choose from: northern pike, walleye, smallmouth bass, whitefish, yellow perch and trout. Our hundreds of lakes and rivers can accommodate your preferences if you’re an extreme or inexperienced angler. Shore or boat fishing, remote fly-in or portage fishing, or just a stroll down one of Chapleau’s rivers. We have what you want!

For the ATVer, countless roads and trails offer amazing riding experiences in spring, summer and fall. In winter, experience our spectacular snowmobile trails through the Boreal wilderness, or ice fish on the nearby lakes. Local guiding services are available year round. Chapleau is accessible by road and the airport is a ten minute drive from town. We host a golf course, retail stores, restaurants and a modern health care facility. A regional rail passenger service known as the Budd Car connects Chapleau with Sudbury and White River and provides access to a number of tourist establishments.
