If you get through the road with no issues it's good. The vehicle parts strewn on the side of the road should indicate what your up against. Things to be alert for on the trip in is logging trucks gravel beating your equipment for 100km and wild life, the road washes out after heavy rain so stay alert go easy. just when you think the road is getting better it will surprise you. The lake is long runs east to west so if the wind picks up the lake is dangerous for canoe or small boat.but very scenic. Have a safe trip.

Stunning landscape but VERY dusty, dirt & gravel road. My first visit to a Provencial Park of any kind in Canada but an adventure all the same. We just didn't expect to have to drive 75 km to get to visitors center. We passed numerous logging trucks (some loaded and some not) that barreled down the dusty road leaving us surrounded in a cloud of dust. There were only 2 trucks that checked on our safety and slowed down to keep from burying us in their dust. This road is not meant for small cars and in fact would recommend an SUV or pickup armed with 4-wheel drive. Be in the lookout for black bear who seemed intent to walk alongside the road. Some would scurry away while others would pass with a look of curiosity as the moseyed on down the road or into the heavy brush. We enjoyed the many wildflowers scattered along the road! BUT be aware that if you get out of vehicle to look or take pictures.....the bugs are atrocious. Take plenty of deet and keep your head and face covered as they will bite. All in all the trip to Missinaibi was WELL WORTH every moment of experience. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer and didn't see any more wildlife or birds.

For a real nice place to get away from the hum-drum and routine of modern life a trip to the north woods is ideal.
We headed north past Sault Ste. Marie to a mere speck on the Canadian map, a tiny town called Chapleau. Nearby is a provincial park and its where we began our north woods exploration. We stayed in a large cabin that resembled more of a fixer-upper barn, yet having all the basic creature comforts that can be found in the woods.. Looking back, it was all that one would ever need when getting away from all of it.
It was comfortable, dry and for the most part warded off the forest critters. Outside was a nice quiet lake that we fished in each day of our stay, an oversized canoe that we paddled around in and which took us to our many little excursions about the lake. We also hiked and took photos of nature's bountiful setting. Blue skies, hardwood trees, ie birch, oak, pine, etc.
One afternoon it rained and afterwards a huge arc of a rainbow framed the lake from side to side. It was technicolor gorgeous!
For a restful and relaxing vacation in a woodsy wonderland clime and away from that real quick-time, the Canadian northwoods is the answer.

Went for day of fishing on the lake. The walleye was great and the lake was even better. There's a great boat launch and fish cleaning station. Quite the trek to actually get to the park (80 some kilometers on a dirt road), but the nature and scenery at the end of the road makes up for it. Didn't actually stay at the camp grounds but there appeared to be nice and clean.
