Day 27: Dryden’s Northwestern Tent & RV Park to Ignace’s Davy Lake Campground

Dusk in the Shield

Today you will bike on a lonely road towards the Ignace. Big rig traffic in this area can be quite intimidating to cyclists. Although these trucks are big and loud, the drivers are professionals and have usually driven this road many times. Expect to encounter more big rigs than commuter traffic in this area.

Aaron Provincial Park, on the shores of Thunder Lake, is a good place for a break or to spend the evening. Sandy beaches, playgrounds and a full service campground make this park a popular place during summer months. To book a site in an Ontario provincial park, visit their website or call 1 (888) ONT-PARK.

After leaving Aaron Provincial Park you will bike between Thunder Lake on the north, and Wabigoon Lake on the south, towards the town of Wabigoon. There are a few small stores and restaurants close to the highway there.

Your destination for the evening is Davy Lake Campground in the heart of Ignace. Ignace, population 1 431 has a grocery store, bank and a hardware store. It is located just south of Sandbar Lake Provincial Park. Davy Lake Campground offers laundry, internet access and a small store.
