Trip Idea

A drive along the Nipigon River

Wildlife viewing and sightseeing

Cameron Falls road runs from Nipigon, along the west side of the Nipigon River North to Lake Nipigon (Forgan Lake).

This crack sealed road is well travelled and provides great views and wildlife viewing. The Trip starts at Highway 525 (Cameron Falls Road) which head north from Highway 11/17 at the Nipigon Petro-Canada.

Lofquist Lake
A small municipal Park and local swimming hole with gravel beach and floating dock. Great views, stocked lake for fishing and a great little lake for canoe/kayaking.

Deer Lake Mountain Trail
A two to three hour moderate hiking trail with great views into the heart of the Boreal forest.

Alexander Falls Dam Lookoff
Parking area and short trail just past the boat launch. A trail leads to a viewing platform for the Dam and falls.

Cameron Falls – The other bridge over the Nipigon River.
The other bridge across the Nipigon River, a single-lane Bailey Bridge which leads to Cameron Falls Dam. An excellent view of the power of the Nipigon River. Cameron Falls was a townsite with the houses since removed and some moved to Nipigon.

Jesse Lake
Large and deep flooded lake which doubled in size with the Dam below. The Nipigon River flows along its eastern banks.

South Bay Road
Gravel road to the southern access point to Lake Nipigon

Pine Portage Dam – Forgan Lake
The newest Dam and Lake Forgan which is directly attached to Lake Nipigon. This is considered the upper river.
