Chapleau Travel Guide

Chapleau, Ontario is often called a "town for all seasons." Snowmobiling is a major draw for Chapleau. Trails are abundant and well groomed and are considered by many to be the best Ontario has to offer. What Chapleau is best known for is being the gateway town to the Chapleau Crown Game Preserve, the largest of its type in the world.

There are countless lakes and streams to fish, vast timberlands full of wildlife photo opportunities, eagle feathers to gather in the wild, and scenic beauty aplenty. Beautiful hiking trails that start almost downtown and quickly take you into the heart of the Northern Ontario bush. There are many resorts that will pick you up in town by boat and take you deep into the quiet of the Canadian bush where you can watch eagles soar over your cabin, see bear wandering across the lake and have wild ducks line up to great your boat as you disembark.

Chapleau has a golf course, good restaurants, a museum, bed & breakfast homes, motels, adequate shopping, and lots of friendly people.

Chapleau is located in central Northeastern Ontario, in the heart of the Canadian Shield. Chapleau is geographically isolated; the nearest cities are Sault Ste. Marie, Timmins, and Sudbury, but all are more than a two hour drive away. Provincial Highway 129 links the town with Highway 101, running east to Timmins and west to Wawa. Hwy. 129 also runs south, connecting with the Trans-Canada Highway, Highway 17 at Thessalon, 227 km from Chapleau.
