Wawa, Ontario, Pop. 4,100, is a picturesque lakefront town on the Trans-Canada Highway (17), 216 km (135 miles) north of Sault Ste. Marie. It is a mining town, but better known to many people as a center for outdoor and wilderness adventures. Opportunities for boating, hiking, fishing, hunting and exploring the vast Canadian wilderness abound. We found it an ideal stop on our trip around Lake Superior. The beautiful setting alone was enough to make us fall in love with Wawa at first sight. We left reluctantly, promising ourselves that we would be back.

Pros and Cons

    I absolutely love finding these wonderful hidden gems. The falls are stunning, but the Wawa Goose monument is fantastic!!!! Wishing you all many Happy Trails!

    Wawa looks simple but the falls made it different. Your good description of it did justice to the place.

    Interesting tips on a beautiful area. Too bad that moose didn't wait for you to get out your camera, though. (When I was in high school we used to go canoeing in the Quetico -- quite a ways west of Wawa, actually.)

    Very helpful page - I'll be in Wawa next week! (I'm finally doing that "circle tour" of Lake Superior that I've dreamed of.)

    Traveling is a remarkable thing, every day something new is learned. I always thought Wawa was a 7-11 type convenience store in Pennsylvania (wink, wink) Kat

    I remember a fishing trip my Dad made to Wawa! I had forgotten all about it! Thanks for the memories. Marcia
