Welcome to TEMAGAMI
Here lies a unique lake, breathtaking 3000 miles of shoreline and over 1200 islands… your wilderness dream come true! Where the trees tower like giants, old growth forests with majestic pines whispering in the wind. Welcome to Temagami!
In Ojibway, Temagami (te maw ga mee) means "deep water by the shore", and our lake has lots of it, with some areas 100 feet deep only 20 feet from the shoreline.
Relaxation is just a paddle away. Listen to the haunting call of the loons, hear a beaver slap its tail on the sparkling crystal clear water or see a huge gangly moose. Camp in one of the beautiful parks or at a hand-picked island site. Tour the many arms and bays in a boat or cruise in a houseboat. When the wilderness has left you weary, spend the night with us in one of our cozy resorts, rustic lodges or housekeeping cottages, while your children enjoy their stay in one of the excellent youth camps.
Our town offers unique shops for gear and souvenirs, a gas station, great restaurants, a bank, and ATM.
Scenic sites abound, take a scenic flight over this vast wilderness region and Caribou Mountain, or try the view from the Caribou Mountain Fire Tower (climb 100 stairs). On a clear day, from the tower, you can see Maple Mountain. Part way up Caribou Mountain visit the trapper's cabin and beaver pond. The numerous trails of the White Bear Forest begin here. The White Bear Forest is a hikers haven of 1242 hectares conservation reserve named after Chief White Bear.
Want total seclusion? Fly into one of the back lakes, outpost cabins and enjoy peace and tranquility.
Lake Temagami is only one of many lakes in the Temagami & Marten River area. Cross Lake, Diamond Lake, Lady Evelyn, Cassels Lake, Herridge Lake, Angus Lake, Net Lake, Jumping Caribou Lake, James Lake and many more have so much to offer.
Temagami is world renowned for its canoe routes with some of the most beautiful and serene backcountry routes ever seen. Whether novice or pro, for canoeing and kayaking there is a route for you!
Fishing these lakes is a fisherman's paradise. It's the challenge of hooking one of the elusive monster lake trout, walleye or northern pike.
When the snow covers the ground and water turns to ice the adventure changes. The fisherman's boat turns to a hut, the hikers trails turn into passes for the snowshoers, skiers and snowmobilers.
Come and enjoy an experience of a lifetime and the memories will last forever. EXPERIENCE TEMAGAMI!
