General Info:
We offer a unique and memorable tourism experience for Canadian and international visitors.

"Widgawa" means "a friendly meeting place" in the Ojibweh language, and during its hundred-year history, has accommodated prospectors and gold miners (1911-1939), hosted a visit from US President Franklin D. Roosevelt (August 1943, and is the last lodge that accommodated Group of Seven artists, who painted the Algoma and La Cloche landscape, that is now Killarney Provincial Park.

Today, this place is the West Gate to Killarney Park, the official Ontario Parks Permit Issuer and Hwy 6 Access Point to the most beautiful part of the park back-country, Grace and Nellie Lakes.

We offer complete outfitting, historic cabin accommodation (>42 people), plus group and wilderness camping, hiking trails, canoeing on crystal clear lakes and climbing white quartzite ridges for spectacular views of a landscape that has inspired much art and peace of mind.
