Rainy Lake is famous for its smallmouth bass fishing. The community is home to the Fort Frances International Bass Classic fishing tournament.

Accommodation choices range from hotels and motels to lodges and resorts to outpost cabins to campgrounds.

Fort Frances is the oldest community west of Lake Superior.

The Fort Frances Museum includes information on attractions and history of all of Northwestern Ontario. Get some exercise by walking along the waterfront out to the rapids where Rainy Lake flows into Rainy River. The next half-mile takes you through Pither's Point Park and onto the shores of sparkling Rainy Lake. Stop and check out the logging boat Hallett. The 60-foot, 57-ton boat was built in 1941 and once was the largest and most powerful boat on Rainy Lake.
