Top of Lake Superior (Highway 17)

The true north shore of Lake Superior combines wild beauty with outstanding fishing for trout and salmon from Rossport, Schreiber and Terrace Bay. In spring, anglers seek steelhead from streams entering Lake Superior. The region also offers many inland lakes for walleyes and Northerns at drive-in resorts near Manitouwadge and Hillsport. From White River, you can take a train or floatplane to first class lodges on wilderness lakes.

Amethyst Mine Panorama
Amethyst Mine PanoramaAmethyst Mine Panorama is the largest deposit in North America. It was discovered in 1955 as a result of a road being built to the forest fire lookout tower (McTavish Tower) visible from the mine sight.
