Wakami Lake Provincial Park
Wakami Lake Provincial Park lies within the vast Boreal Forest on the edge of the Arctic watershed. The park’s rustic campground with 59 sites provides a base for excellent walleye and northern pike fishing, boating, canoeing and kayaking on 15 km-long Wakami Lake. After a day of fishing, enjoy a fresh shore lunch of whitefish.
The park’s historic logging trail marks the transition from horse logging to mechanized logging. A collection of actual logging equipment is showcased to teach visitors how logging was done 60 years ago.
