Your journey begins in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario Canada, where on the morning of departure you will load your gear into the baggage car and then board a coach on the regular passenger train for an incredible 114-mile excursion to the world famous Agawa Canyon wilderness park.
Upon your arrival to the Park, you will unload your gear from the passenger train and get settled into the Camp Car, which will be waiting for you at its designated site on the house track. Canyon Park Rangers will also be on-hand to run through the Camp Car’s operating systems and provide assistance or answer questions during your stay.
The 'Canyon View' is a former Green Bay and Western caboose, fully equipped to accommodate up-to four persons comfortably. On-board facilities include a small galley kitchen, separate dining area with 3/4 size refrigerator and a three piece bathroom with shower.
There is one bedroom with a single bunk bed and a lounge area with two double sofa beds. A diesel generator provides electricity and the car is fully air conditioned.
The Camp Car comes equipped with all linens, dishes, cooking utensils and drinking water. The only things you need to bring are your food, beverages and personal items.
PLEASE NOTE: Canyon Park is a remote wilderness location, only accessible by rail and we ask that you remember to pack accordingly.
As well, there is a private out-door area nestled in the trees setup with a gas barbecue, screen house, picnic table, lawn chairs and a campfire pit. The car also comes with two canoes outfitted with paddles and personal flotation devices.
Agawa Canyon provides a breathtaking back-drop to your eco-adventure. The park itself is kept in pristine condition with trails leading to the most scenic spots, including four sets of waterfalls. Hiking opportunities extend beyond the park with trails on top of the canyon wall.
Bird life in Canyon Park is incredibly varied and includes a variety of raptors such as golden eagles, broad wing hawks and American Kestrels.
The Agawa River is home to brook or speckled trout and there are numerous pools within easy canoeing distance. A fishing licence is required and it would be appreciated if you would consider the conservation practice of catch and release.
So whether you're an outdoor enthusiast or rail-fan, looking to hike, canoe, swim, just relax or capture the incredible beauty of the area with film or paint, Agawa Canyon Park is a true oasis in the northern wilderness and an incredible setting for anyone who loves nature.
