More on Sioux Lookout
Daniel Mittag writes:
- 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
- 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.
