Add to my ‘Favorite Lakes’ on Lakelubbers

Located in Ontario Canada's Sunset Country, Lake Nipigon is a destination into a remote area of pristine wilderness and the largest lake entirely within the boundaries of Ontario. With towering cliffs, hundreds of islands to explore, and the unusual green black sandy beaches, Lake Nipigon is outdoor enthusiasts paradise.

The word Nipigon means "deep clear water" as named by the First Nations people who live in the area and have called it their home since 8000BC. These people relied on the lake area for fishing, wild plants, small and large game for survival as well as their clothing. Fur traders moved to the area in the mid 1600's and discovered the vast abundance of beaver, otter, fox, and muskrat and began to settle the area with numerous trading posts and forts. Because of the remoteness of Lake Nipigon, the beauty and wildness has been relatively unchanged since those early days.

Lake Nipigon Provincial Park is located on the eastern side of the lake and is considered a natural environment park which protects the landscapes and special features of the area while providing access to the public. As you gently float through the cool water, you will be awed by the large caribou roaming the area, the numerous bald eagles soaring over the towering cliffs, and the endangered white pelicans sitting on their nests.

Throughout the secluded areas are vacation rentals for visitors from resorts, isolated cabins, campgrounds, and outfitters' lodges that offer everything from hunting trips, fishing guides, or kayaking tours. The shores of Lake Nipigon offer opportunities for swimming, boating, canoeing, kayaking, hiking trails and vantage points for just sitting still, breathing fresh air, listening to nature and enjoying the landscape or stars and northern lights. Once you visit, you may not want to leave this heaven on earth so perhaps you may decide to purchase a piece of this water front real estate for your own.

Noted for the world's largest brook trout caught at over 14 pounds, Lake Nipigon is an anglers' paradise. With over 500 islands, numerous bays and coves, fish habitats are too numerous to count. Walleye, northern pike, lake trout, rainbow trout, Coho, Chinook, pink salmon, whitefish, and perch are all waiting to take your bait. The lake freezes in late December and the ice breaks up in late April to early May but don't worry, because ice fishing is great here too.

All around Lake Nipigon, the wondrous land of Ontario's Sunset Country boasts an area of thousands of lakes, thick forests, wilderness landscapes, and abundant wildlife. Hunting for bear, moose, and whitetail deer is excellent and as well as the thousands of great fishing spots for anglers. The area is also known world wide as a top ice climbing area.

Roaming moose, soaring eagles, Northern lights, pristine beauty all await your arrival. Pack your gear and head to Lake Nipigon in Ontario, Canada.
