Township of Pickle Lake
The Township of Pickle Lake is located at the end of Highway 599 in Northwest Ontario. Highway 599 is a year round accessible highway that meets the TransCanada Highway 17 at Ignace Ontario. You can also access 599 off Hwy 516 from Sioux Lookout Ontario. There is something exciting about “the end of the road” and this phrase brings with it an image of wilderness. The community’s slogan of “The Last Frontier” is truly the feeling that you get after you have traveled the distance from Ignace and Sioux Lookout to the community. Pickle Lake is at the end of the paved road, however, you can continue traveling north on a gravel road for another several hours. In the winter this road joins the “ice roads” that lead to dozens of First Nation communities that rely on this form of transportation for their leisure travel as well as their goods and services. Many of these remote First Nations north of Pickle Lake are the original Wasaya owner communities and remain so today.
The Pickle Lake region has something to offer everyone interested in exploring Canada’s great outdoors. It really is wilderness fishing, hunting and canoeing at its best. You’re encouraged to come and explore the vast untouched virgin Boreal forests, go fishing in the regions many lakes for the great tasting Walleye/Pickerel or fish for the large Northern Pike, bird watchers will enjoy the bald eagles, owls and sand hill cranes, while hunters will find plenty of opportunities for trophy moose, grouse, geese and other game birds.
Pickle Lake is the home of a full service Municipal Campground and RV Park. The community’s modern airport is an important hub for Wasaya Airways as it fly’s people, supplies, fuel and freight to and from the remote First Nation communities and the region’s Fishing and Hunting Outpost Camps as does Wasaya’s floatplane partner based in Pickle Lake.
