Sioux Lookout, Ontario, Canada - A Northern Experience

Sioux Lookout is situated on Pelican Lake, part of the English River-Lac Seul Water System. Sioux Lookout is an important service centre in the heart of the Patricia Region. You can stock up on food, bait and tackle and other supplies in town or stay overnight in a hotel/motel. Blueberry Festival, Sioux LookoutThere are many resorts in the area offering great fishing or hunting and many are perfect for a family vacation. If you're looking for a very secluded remote cabin, there are many outposts cabins to fly to from Sioux Lookout. You can even fly to all-inclusive American Plan fly-in resorts. Enjoy the annual Blueberry Festival held every August. Visit Ojibway Provincial Park about 25 kilometers southwest of Sioux Lookout on Highway 72. Natural features you'll find include labrador tea, wild rice, lady slipper and water lily. The campground on Little Vermilion Lake has a sandy beach for swimmers. Eleven kilometers of picturesque hiking trails wind through the backwoods. South of Sioux Lookout is the village of Hudson and beautiful Vermilion Lake, known for its clear deep water and Big Vermilion Beach, one of the nicest swimming spots in the area.

Sioux Mountain, site of a 1700s battle between the Ojibway and invading Sioux is located across the lake from the Town site. Legend has it that the Ojibway camped at the peak of Sioux Mountain so they could see approaching Sioux canoes from a great distance and set up a successful ambush. During the ambush the entire invading party was killed or drowned except for one small boy, saved by a compassionate Ojibway woman. He was adopted into the tribe and later became one of its most respected chiefs.

The Town of Sioux Lookout derives its name from the Ojibway-Sioux confrontation. Hiking trails still lead to the peak of Sioux Mountain though the view is now regarded as more beautiful than menacing.
