Glamping doubles this year

Glamping's second season in Temagami will double its first, says King of Glamping, Kim Cowan.

Misabi Adventure Company continues glamorous camping in solitude on Obabika Lake.

The standard package will mean a stay at a campsite for a week with day trips to aboriginal spiritual sites, old growth or a sweat lodge, escorted by Alex or Natasha Mathias of the Temagami First Nation. Obabika is their traditional family territory.

Misabi pioneered wilderness glamping in Canada. This summer it will add a Parry Sound glampsite and a Learn to Camp program.

Rabbit Lake Road re-opens

A spring washout on Rabbit Lake Road is repaired sufficiently to allow road vehicles.

The washout, just west of Glasford Lake, disrupted access to the Ottawa-Temiskaming Highland and Grand Campment hiking trails. It did not hinder Rabbit Lake access.

MNR cautions that the short-term repair is not suitable for transports and other heavy vehicles.
