Wabakimi Provincial Park
In the heart of Northwestern Ontario, the Wabakimi Provincial Park is pure grandeur. It is home to Woodland Caribou, moose, eagles, and wolves. Known for its high quality fly-in fishing and hunting, Wabakimi is one of the world’s largest boreal forest reserves and wilderness areas. Wabakimi is an Ojibway name meaning “Whitewater” as there are many rapids found in the rivers throughout the park. It was established in 1983, and expanded almost six-fold in 1997. The park’s current size is 892,061 hectares (8,920 square kilometers, 3,444 square miles, or almost 2.3 million acres.) It is now the second largest park in the Ontario Parks system, (the largest is Polar Bear Provincial Park, near Hudson Bay.)
As the premier Ontario fly in fishing destination, Thunderhook Fly-Ins offers exclusive access to the lakes, rivers, and streams in the Wabakimi Provincial Park. Almost all of our remote outpost camps are located in the park, along with our Ontario fishing lodge on Smoothrock Lake. All of these locations are accessible by air only. If you are looking for the ultimate adventure in the park you may want to try an Ontario moose hunt with us as well.
