Temagami Wilderness Adventures



This 400 hectare provincial park can be located south of Temagami just off Hwy 11 at the junction of Hwy 64. The park is nestled along the scenic Marten River offering all amenities such as showers, laundry facilities and flush toilets with 62 of the 190 campsites equipped with electrical access for trailers. Within the park is a 5km hiking trail as well as a short nature trail which travels through a previously logged area, but it is still lined with old-growth white pine and your able to stop at an old restored logging camp along the way to take in the sights, have your lunch or just have a rest before the journey back. As well as just hiking along you could be practicing the newly learned skills in basic map and compass reading in relation to a G.P.S. unit, in a one day practical training session that is offered through Temagami Wilderness Adventures by a certified G.P.S card holder. For the water enthusiasts picnic areas, sandy beaches and a boat launch located next to the river provides access to the beginning of a peaceful and relaxing canoe trip through the scenic and serene Marten River Loop.


The Marten River Loop is a 2 day canoe trip which makes for a great week-end getaway at a slow relaxed pace with very little difficulty along the route without numerous portages to cross over to access other lakes. This allows for you to travel from the Marten River to Marten Lake and portage over to Wicksteed Lake, where the route continues along to Bruce Lake before meeting up with Marten Lake again. This is a relatively easy canoe route with some potential for wind problems on the larger lakes, but the one portage of 2,400m(7,874ft) being the biggest challenge for the most part, the other portage is only 190m(623ft). With very little effort you’ll be able to experience the joys and pleasures of canoeing as well as enjoy a night or two of camping in between on one of these wonderful lakes. In the middle of Bruce and Wicksteed Lakes lays the Kenny Forest Provincial Nature Preserve, this 22,000 hectares of natural, pristine forest lies within an enormous tract of land called the Nipissing Crown Game Preserve. In this Nature Preserve which has become an important wildlife refuge no trace camping is permitted. The philosophy is “Leave nothing behind, but your footprints” at the any of the many rustic campsites that can be found along the shoreline of all three lakes. The active and wild shoreline of these three lakes has become home to many small mammals such as the beaver and muskrat and just maybe a majestic moose may be seen dining on some aquatic vegetation early one morning.


The Marten River/Wicksteed Loop is for the more adventuress and more experienced canoeist mainly due to the length of time it takes to complete 7-9 days. The route covers many rivers and large lakes with the wind posing a problem in those large bodies of water as well as over 20 portages, although, only one being over 500m (1,640ft). The loop travels in a counter clockwise direction from Marten River Provincial Park over several large lakes to Lake Temagami and on to return to the Temagami River with many easily located rustic campsites along the way. For a shorter canoe trip, camp out along the shores of Red Cedar Lake which is at the end of the picturesque Marten River Waterway.
