Wakami Lake Provincial Park

Park

This is the perfect, secluded place to escaping the bustling city. Wakami Lake Provincial Park is set in the vast Boreal Forest along the edge of the Arctic watershed. The park has a rustic campground; the perfect place to wake up and start a day of adventure. Here you will find first-rate walleye and northern pike fishing, and canoeing or kayaking on the 15km-long Wakami Lake. After a day out on the water, come to the beach for a swim and picnic lunch, while admiring the scenic views around you. The park’s Historic Logging trail illustrates the change from horse logging to mechanized logging, between 1920 and 1940. Several old logging machines are on display to teach visitors how this industry functioned 60 years ago. Along the other trails, you’ll see examples of nature’s natural logger, the beaver. The park has two resident beavers, so keep your eyes peeled for their active lodge! Hidden Blog Trail is the spot for plant-enthusiasts, with its large variety of fauna. There are even some carnivorous species, such as the pitcher plant and sundew. Wakami Lake Provincial Park, with its intriguing natural and cultural features, is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
