Albany Waterway Park This long river runs borders the northerly tip of Wabakimi and provides a river canoeing experience.
The experienced canoeist can follow this waterway all the way to Hudson Bay if he chooses. Albany River Provincial is located approximately 165 kilometers northeast of the Town of Sioux Lookout.
The Albany River is a historic fur trade route and the river winds its way through rugged precambrian shiled rocks as it makes its way towards Hudson Bay. This is a post glacial landscape as the retreating glaciers and the river itself have left their marks in the shape of moraines, drumlins, and a variety of water-shaped landforms. Albany River is a "wilderness" park and as such has no formal visitor services or developed campsites. Wilderness canoeing is the number one activity enjoyed by visitors to the park along with spectacular fishing for brook trout along the river itself.
