Information for Ontario
Ontario's Algoma Country Region
Algoma Country runs from
Elliot Lake in the east, Sault Ste. Marie in the southwest, to past
Hornepayne in the north. It includes Wawa, Chapleau, Blind
River, St. Joseph Island, Spanish, Thessalon, and White River.
Algoma Country offers the rugged
shoreline of Lake Superior, museums, casinos, camping, sea kayaking,
skiing, trains rides, lock tours, horseback riding, history,
snowmobiling, and an abundance of provincial parks, to name just a
few things you can do here.
The Algoma Central Railway takes you
through some awe inspiring landscapes. In the winter take the Snow
Train for a look at our northern wilderness few get to see. See
where Winnie The Poor was born. Go sea kayaking on warm days, visit
a wide range of museums on raining days, and try your luck at a
casino in the evening. Visit Cockburn Island, and find out why in
1996 it was listed as having a reeve, a treasurer, a clerk, a roads
engineer, a municipal office, 84 households, but only a total
population of two! Fly in, boat in, or drive in, Algoma Country is
sure to have something to keep your family happy and entertained
during your next vacation.
