Hi all. I'm new here, but not new to Temagami. We used to canoe trip here every summer, and have done several routes, but not in the past 15 years. We are planning a trip for this August and are bringing wives / children (no younger than 8), and are looking for a fairly tame route with large campsites. Small lakes and rivers would be best but not critical. We have four days / three nights.

Was considering the Marten River, Red Cedar, Hangstone, Jumping Caribou route. Really would like a loop but not critical. Have read a bit about the Obabika River route, and also the Matabichwan River route. Will those work for us? Any other suggeestions?

Much appreciated!

Great site, by the way. Glad I found it.

I should have added...we have also been looking at the Chiniguchi area. We have never canoed here before.

Is it busy in mid summer? Would you recommend this area?

Is ther a good outfitter for this area?

Thanks again!

On the Obabika River there is just the one campsite which is marked on the map. Very windy and close-in river, which is not necessarily for everyone.

Chiniguchi would work for you, along with many other areas. This map shows the heaviest traffic areas:

There is just one outfitter in Chiniguchi, and only a partial outfitter: Sportsman's Lodge. George Robbins is the proprietor.
