Lake Superior Provincial Park

Right on the heels of my Wawa post, I thought it useful to mention Lake Superior Provincial Park.

If your fishing trip takes you anywhere near Lake Superior Provincial Park, do yourself a favor and plan some time for this most beautiful park.

Lake Superior Provincial Park is 1,600 square kilometers of raw and majestic beauty, accessed by highway 17 North out of Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, just south of Wawa.

Artifacts uncovered in the park have been carbon dated as early as 500 BC and you can view Agawa Rock Pictographs estimated to be between 150 and 400 years old. The park's history includes hunting, trapping and lumbering.

In addition to hiking and canoeing, the park is open to hunting and fishing, including ice fishing. You can fish for trout, salmon, pike and walleye in the park, although trout and salmon are most common.
