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.

    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!

    My husband and I stayed here twice, on our honeymoon road trip. On the way up, we decided to book here and we loved it! We loved the cabin vibe of our room. It was very clean and comfortable. The gentleman checking us in was very nice. They even offer some baked goods and coffee in the morning. We loved it so much, we decided to stay there again on the way back. It is a very small town so there's limited things to do but Lake Wawa is beautiful! Highly recommended!

    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.

  • This quiet, clean, pet friendly motel in Wawa is one of the best spots we've stayed while traveling the TransCanada. There's a park with a playground directly across the street as well as a grocery store + several restaurants in walking distance. Owners are very kind and accommodating, they obviously love what they do. A note for my fellow vegan/lactose intolerant travellers: they had both Silk Oat and almond milk out for coffee service in the morning. What a thoughtful touch! We will be back again and again. Highly recommend.

    I came in late and the owner waited up for me and even helped park my big moving van for me. It was so nice and the decor allows you to feel at the cabin. Loved the seated shower stall. Very clean. No complaints at all.

    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.

    My corworker and I stayed at the Outdoorsman for one night earlier in September. We really enjoyed out experience! The room was very clean, equipped with a large fridge and microwave. it is conveniently located right in Wawa, walking distance from the downtown. Ray was very helpful and friendly and was able to share more information about the area.

  • The best hotel experience I've had. The rooms were tidy and well kept. The full size fridge and freezer as well as the barbecues were a great feature for someone like myself who was staying for an extended period of time. The coffee and cookies available early in the morning made for a great start to my work days and the owners were incredibly friendly and personable.

  • Ray greated us and was very friendly. Our room was fresh smelling, very clean and had everything we needed. Cute decor. We are doing the Lake Superior Circle tour on our motorcycle and have stayed in various places along the way. We would definitely recommend The Outdoorsman. Also close enough to places to walk to eat if you don't want to ride your bike to dine.

  • 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.

    thumb Robert Rose
    May 30, 2022

    This is a great place to stay. The owners are friendly and totally on the ball. We had asked for extra bedding when we had called to book ahead and... boom... there it was in the room. They have coffee and cookies in the morning. We didn't really feel comfortable backing our trailer between some truck and the owner jumped right in and backed it up for us. Will stay again!

    thumb M Lamothe

    Great place for our family of four. The room was really clean and the bathroom looked brand new. Staff and owners very friendly and accommodating. Best part, the motel is right next to a playground so entertaining our 2 year old was easy. I would stay here again.

    I have been to dozens of motels across Canada, but this motel is by far the best!! Not 5 stars but 10 stars!! Ray and Lynn, together with their staff, are great people. Ray and Lynn make you feel almost like your family from the first moment. The rooms are beautiful, everywhere is clean, everything is working, WiFi is amazing, they even invite you for a coffee and cookies in the morning! This motel is better than many 4 star hotels!! I have been here twice and will come again. Thanks Ray and Lynn you are the best!!!!
