Missanabie is situated on the edge of the World’s largest Game Preserve. We are at the northern end of Hwy 651 and 73 miles from Wawa and 214 miles from Sault Ste. Marie. We are on the shores of beautiful Dog Lake. Dog Lake has over 300 miles of shoreline, many islands & grassy bays. Fish for Walleye, Northern Pike, Jumbo Perch, Smallmouth Bass, Lake Trout, White Fish. Missanabie is a small town with a year-round population of 20 people.
The town was born at the time of the North West Fur Trade, and is home to one of the only original trading posts still standing in this part of Ontario – quite a feat, having been built in 1886!
Also, still standing and now privately owned is the Missanabie Hotel.
In its heyday, Missanabie was both a mining and lumber town, with a sawmill on the outskirts and a prosperous gold mine called Renabie 11 miles away. Now, however, the town’s mainstay is tourism, and you will find the atmosphere to be relaxed and welcoming.
