What You'll Like:

A component of the Lake Nipigon Basin Signature Site, Black Sturgeon River is an important recreational waterway for fishing, hunting and canoeing. The rugged landscape has diverse features including a glacial spillway and cuestas. The park provides day-use opportunities for angling on its many lakes and rivers; paddling opportunities along its entire length, especially between the former Split Rapids Dam and Nonwatin Lake; as well as using the beach areas for family picnics and swimming. During the winter, the park provides cross-country skiing and snowshoeing opportunities.

Location: Located northwest of the Town of Nipigon. The Black Sturgeon River begins near Lake Nipigon and flows into Black Bay on Lake Superior. The park stretches approximately 72 kilometres northerly along the Black Sturgeon River from Lyon Township to the Philips and Benner baseline at the top end of Black Sturgeon Lake.
