Like many Wabakimi trips, this one starts from the town of Armstrong. Although the town is extremely small, it does have a number of useful facilities: a motel opposite the gas station, a grocery store, and one restaurant. Other lodging is available near Mattice Lake.
The Little Caribou bridge is about 6km northwest of Armstrong and is an excellent starting point as Caribou Lake itself can be quite windy. Local outfitters can provide a short shuttle and safe parking. large pine cabin and later a smaller one (The Snail) into the hillside that was more efficient to heat in winter.
Check out the pictographs on Cliff Lake (shown on the supplementary page) and maybe the downed plane on Wash Lake.
The campsites are quite plentiful and like the portages are not marked but usually quite obvious. Bear in mind, however, that the portage crew only gets to each of the very many routes in the region about every two or three years.
From Smoothrock Lake we show two routes to Whitewater Lake. Berg River from Outlet Bay is the more interesting or, if you are short of time, take the shorter route from Lonebreast Bay (map 4a at the back). The Ogoki Lodge on Whitewater Lake is worth checking out. It was originally built as an eco-tourism destination with a main lodge built in the shape of a giant teepee. Although left in disrepair, it is to be restored as a commercial lodge.
