This map is the heart of Temagami – the octopus-like lake that has become one of Ontario’s more popular tourist destinations. Not only is this a superb paddling and hiking destination, but also a land of a thousand windblown islands, vast forests featuring stands of impressive old-growth red and white pine, fish worthy of great stories, and picturesque water’s edge cottages.
The Lake Temagami map includes the area from Obabika Lake to the west, Diamond Lake to the north, the village of Temagami, White Bear Forest and Cassels Lake to the east, and Wawiashkashi Lake, the edge of the Sturgeon River and Marion Lake to the south. It also includes Finlayson Point Provincial Park just south of the village, which can be a great base of operations, as can one of many lodges, guest houses or cottages in the area.
At 1:80,000 scale this map shows more detail than government topos including campsites, portages, historic features, fish species and the incredibly detailed land and waterscape you’ve come to expect from The Adventure Map™. The back side is covered with colour photos and text detailing the natural and human history of the area along with suggested routes, safety tips, contact info and much more. This one has quickly become the standard for on-the-water navigation.
Though it covers the area of several government topos and has considerably more detail, this single map is less than a third of the cost. Plus it overlaps the edges of our surrounding maps.
Other guides in the Temagami series include Temagami 1-Northwest which overlaps the top edge of this map, Temagami 3-Marten & Temagami Rivers Area which overlaps the bottom right edge, and Temagami 4-Northwest & Sturgeon River, which overlaps the west edge of this map.
