Wawa is best known for its famous big Goose Monument that overlooks the entrance to this picturesque community. This historical monument marks the opening of the last link of the Lake Superior section of the Trans-Canada Highway more than 50 years ago.

Wawa’s location on the northeastern shore of Lake Superior makes it a natural stop when travelling around the Lake Superior. It’s a wonderful destination for fishing, paddling, and winter adventures like snowmobiling. The abundance of inland lakes and rivers makes for many remote wilderness adventures. You’ll find a number of accommodations, restaurants and things to see and do here. The Heritage Doors located at parks and scenic locations are original works of art that tell stories of local pioneers and community characters.

Visit Scenic High Falls and Silver Falls. Just a few minutes’ drive from the Goose is Sandy Beach. Made famous by Group of Seven painter A.Y. Jackson (Shoreline, Wawa, Lake Superior) this gorgeous beach is a natural gathering place for locals and visitors. Learn the history of the Group of Seven in Algoma and the history of the Indigenous people who settled the area.

There are numerous Wawa festivals and events including the Blueberry Fair, Canada Day Celebrations, the Festival of Lights, the Wawa Winter Carnival and Wawa Music Festival to name a few.

Visit the Tourist Information Centre located at the junction of Highway 17 and 101. Travel Centre Staff are local experts and can answer all your questions about the area. The Centre is open from May to Thanksgiving.

Don’t Just Take Our Words for It; See What Our Guests Have to Say About the Outdoorsman Motel

  • Stayed at the outdoorsman, last minute, after a long drive across northern Ontario. The place has been totally renovated with super cute, cabin decor, and was immaculately clean. I travel a lot for work and the bathroom, was probably one of the best I've seen. It had a huge, new bathtub, which is near impossible to find anywhere else. They are normally so small and gross at most places, but not here. But most importantly, again... It was so clean. The owners were also super nice. We came to ask for some ice and he handed us crystal glasses to mix a drink. Fresh cookies in the morning was also a nice touch. Would definitely recommend.

    Extremely friendly staff! Lovely spot to stay. We stopped here for one night on our way through the town and decided to stay here over the other spots in town and we are SO happy we did! The rooms were spotless and clean. You could smell the cleanness of the room. The bathroom looked brand-new and just renovated. There was wifi, tv, fridge, microwave, table and a queen bed in the room. Very comfortable room and gave a lovely "home" feeling. We received free coffee in the morning and fresh baked cookies! The staff were very genuine, kind and friendly. Definitely will stay here again if we pass by again! Definitely recommend!

  • I was dreading the thought of looking for a room in Wawa on a Sunday night but we were too tired to keep driving. I chose this Motel after reading so many positive reviews. It is gem! Don't let the rustic appearance of the rooms fool you. The decor is not old and musty, it's beautiful and comfortable. Our room was very clean and had an updated bathroom. We would certainly stay there again.

  • y The room was clean and comfortable. Nicely decorated. The bathroom had apparently been recently re-done, as it was very clean and BRIGHT. I went to the office to get ice. Ray, the owner, asked if I was making a cocktail to un-wind, which I was. Ray handed me two glass, cocktail glasses, as he did not want us drinking out of plastic glasses. A touch of class, on Rays part. The owners were absolutely great in making sure their guests were comfortable. We would definitely stay here again..... Go Packers.......

    We are driving from Ottawa to Vancouver with lots of overnight stays in chain hotels. This stay was by far the best. Clean, comfortable and friendly. Highly recommend. Only minor criticism was that as we had to leave very early, coffee was not available. Pot in the room would have been icing on the cake.

    We were traveling cross-country to relocate and needed a stop in Wawa along our route. Becuase we were traveling with pets, our choices were limited and some of the places -- even national chains -- were run down and it was evident that NOBODY who worked at them cared about their guests or their business. Our expectation were quite low when we arrived at the Outdoorsman Motel in Wawa, but were surprised and delighted. It is charming and the owners have clearly gone out of their way to create a clean, inviting experience for their guests. Lots of little touches that show they care deeply about the role a good motel plays for a weary traveller. We loved that they had all of the take-out menus from local restaurants in the room and offered us some extra towels and cloths becuase they knew we were traveling with pets. Highly recommended.

    Love this place ❤️. Its warm and cozy. The new owners welcome you like family. The outdoorsy and country theme is inviting. Brand new everything from the rugs to the unique lamps. Took a day long motorbike ride with friends and and were happy to rest at this little gem. They even provided free shammys to wipe our bikes down. The new owners are delightful and helpful if you need anything. The rooms have a full size fridge and freezer to store anything you may pick up across the street at the local grocery store. There is also a beer store and restaurants less than a block away. Outside there are new barbecues and also lawn chairs for you to enjoy the fresh air. Last but not least , fresh delicious coffee and just baked cookies offered in the morning. We will most definitely be staying again.
