Have you ever wanted to visit a a meteor crash site? Look no further! The Sudbury basin in Fairbank Provincial Park was formed 1.8 billion years ago when a meteor crashed into the Earth. This is the second-largest known impact crater on Earth, and one of the oldest. As well as being on the shores of the Sudbury basin, this park contains Fairbank Lake, one of clearest spring fed lakes in Northern Ontario. The original name for the Lake “Wa-Shai-Ga-Mog” is the Ojibway word meaning “clear water”. Popular activities are, of course, swimming and paddling along the beautiful public beach. There is also a short, but challenging, hike up the bedrock outcrops. At the top, you can take a break and experience a panoramic view of the surrounding forests, the Fairbank Fault, and the beautiful blue waters of the Lake. If you are camping at the park, there are forested sites available right on the water, each with its own little beach! You can also enjoy winter activities in this park. Please contact the park for more details.
