More on Sioux Lookout

Daniel Mittag writes:

Sioux Lookout is a really relaxing place to be in the summer. There is a fairly low pace of life and most afternoons, on nice days, are spent boating, at the beach or fishing for walleye.
The Blueberry Festival takes place every August and is a pretty large 10-day-long festival with live music, games, bocce tournaments, baking competitions and a ton of other activities. It is open to everyone and is a celebration of Sioux Lookout and it’s history/culture.
Here are a few other facts on Sioux Lookout:
  • Sioux Lookout is known as “The Hub of the North”
  • major centre for essential services in Northern Ontario
  • one of the busier small airports in Canada
  • tourism is a main source of income, thanks to a large population boom in the summer
  • world-class walleye (pickerel) fishing in the summer attracts people in droves to fish the pristine lakes
  • Sioux Lookout has great beaches and there is usually a ton of water sports (wakeboarding, water skiing, tubing) in the summer
Attractions:
  • Frog Rapid Camp: tourist camp/boat rentals/fishing expeditions. Family owned and operated since 1939. Really cool place to spend a weekend/week.
  • Knobby’s Restaurant: only open in the summer, cool local hangout that’s a log cabin-style place overlooking the lake and float plane base. Great food and fresh fish daily.
