About Blind River:

Located on the north channel of Lake Huron in the Algoma District, the Town of Blind River has a unique waterfront heritage. Situated at the mouth of the Mississagi River and the Penewobecong (renamed Blind River by the Voyageurs because the river’s mouth was not visible from the canoe route), this area has been a gathering spot since the early 1600s.

The Town of Blind River was incorporated in 1906 and is well known for its logging history. Its year-round activities, arts and cultural events and endless wilderness trails makes it a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts and festival seekers alike.

Blind River offers a full-service marina, natural sand beaches, tennis courts, 18-hole golf course, arena, parks, interpretive trails, museum, art gallery, restaurants, boutiques and much more.
