The Towns and Cities
of Northern Ontario
Pickle Lake in Sunset Country
Pickle Lake owes its beginnings to
the discovery of gold in 1929 at Central Patricia and at Pickle Crow
along the Crow River. Six years later, the town was booming with two
mines in production and quite a few other businesses started to
flourish. Even a soft drink bottling plant was established in the
area around 1940.
Today, both Central Patricia and Pickle
Crow have disappeared but Pickle Lake still thrives.
This community holds the distinction of
being the northernmost community that is year round accessible by road.
With many thousands of kilometers of rivers and lakes waiting to be
explored, Pickle Lake is “the last frontier”.
Pickle Lake offers the opportunity to
view the boreal forest that has remained untouched for centuries. Lakes
abound and so do the fish. The walleye is the most sought after catch.
Moose hunting is also another attraction in an area where the hunter
might be the first person ever to wander in the region.
