Backcountry ranger on the Missinaibi River

The Missinaibi River is one of the longest and most famous canoe routes in the Hudson Bay Basin: 500 km of whitewater river, from the Arctic Basin to James Bay.

This summer, our Northeast Resource Management Team traveled 185 km of that river working to maintain the interior of Missinaibi Provincial Park.

Our management teams do a truly amazing job protecting the beauty of our provincial parks.

Planning a trip?

There are five main canoe routes located within Missinaibi, with over 75 associated campsites. These are very remote places; Amenities are rustic (a private bathroom, a fire pit, and a few tent sites), so self-sufficiency and backcountry experience are essential.

Fish for species such as walleye, northern pike, whitefish, and smallmouth bass throughout the park. Lake Missinaibi has been a fishing destination for anglers from around the world, but it still remains wild and uncrowded.

These campers had a great time exploring the route from Mattice to Moosonee through some of the river’s most spectacular scenery, including Thunderhouse Falls, Stone Rapids, and Hell’s Gate.

Are you ready for Missinaibi?“This will remain one of the most memorable experiences of my life – a unique combination of camaraderie, relaxation, perseverance, solitude, bewilderment and sense of achievement define what it is to experience some of nature’s most pristine and inaccessible places.”
