White River and Pukaskwa River Paddling Routes
White River and Pukaskwa River Paddling Routes © Parks Canada
The White River offers a wilderness white-water adventure. The White is easily accessible and can be paddled any time of year during the open-water season. Many wilderness adventurers leave from White Lake Provincial Park and travel four to six days to the White River's mouth, at Lake Superior. A short paddle one-hour north on Lake Superior brings paddlers to the Hattie Cove Visitor Centre.
The Pukaskwa River is remote and difficult route at on the park’s southern border. Navigable only during spring run-off, from May to early June, the route is maintained through the cooperative efforts of Parks Canada and Manitouwadge High School.
