You hear a lot about Temagami in the news and from friends who have cottages and cabins. Yet I was surprised just how tiny the town is considering the tourism business up here. There is a lot to do in Temagami if you like the outdoors. But if you like the indoors, well, dont expect much of a town or any urban evening attractions, because the town itself is tiny.
Temagami is a town of about 800 an hour-plus from North Bay. The town was first settled in 1850 when the Hudson Bay Company set up a trading post on Lake Temagami. The ONTC railways came through in 1904 as silver was found in Cobalt to the north, and Temagami became a town of trappers, traders, and prospectors.
Temagami is one of the last parts of Ontario with old growth forest, and was the subject of intense protests against logging in the 1980s. Temagami is Ojibway for deep water by the shore. It is also where Englishman Archie Belaney found fame as Grey Owl, an Aboriginal devoted to environmentalism.
Today Temagami is largely dependent on forestry and tourism. There is a fair amount to do in Temagami. There are two provincial parks nearby, Finlayson and Lady Evelyn-Smoothwater. Temagami is a starting point for a number of all season activities, including boating, dogsledding, canoeing, cross country skiing, swimming, fishing, camping, houseboating, hunting, and guided tours. There are also a nature interpretive centre, some craft shops, and an art gallery.
The area used to be littered with forest fire towers that were up to 1000 metres high one of which has been maintained as an attraction that you can climb. It is one kilometre from Highway 11 on Caribou Mountain, but isnt really visible form the highway.
Temagami is relatively small but has tourist amenities. Theres a grocery store and a couple of shops. There are numerous camps, lodges, and other places to stay, including Inn The Woods Motel and Bed and Breakfast, Leisure Island Houseboats, Lindas Wigwams, and Temagami On Ice Bungalows.
