I made my way to Wabakimi Provincial Park in northern Ontario for a solo canoe trip in 2017. I found easy drive up access to the park and surrounding crown lands from the small town of Armstrong. I spent 15 days out, paddling a big loop to the north through large and small lakes and all kinds of weather conditions. The portages and fishing were great, and I went 12 days without seeing another person.
This was a loop trip starting near Armstrong, Ontario. I travelled through Caribou Lake, Smoothrock Lake, north to Whitewater lake and west into the Grayson River. I portaged west into the Palisade River, then went south to Kenoji Lake and up the Ogoki River to Wabakimi Lake. From there I travelled back east through Lower Wabakimi Lake and on to Smoothrock Lake to complete the loop and on back to the starting point through Caribou lake. This trip is a 5 part video series with maps, beautiful scenery, good fishing, and a wood canoe. Enjoy!
In Part 1 I launch on Little Caribou Lake, travel to main Caribou Lake and head west. I enter the park in the western outlet arm of Caribou Lake and wander through the portages to Smoothrock Lake, then turn to the north.
