About South River

South River, Ontario

 

 

 

 

South River is a village on Highway 124 near Algonquin Park in the Almaguin Highlands region of Parry Sound District of Ontario, Canada. It is about halfway between North Bay and Huntsville or a 3.5-hour drive north from Toronto. South River has access to the Algonquin Park for canoeists at Kawawaymog (Round Lake). South River is also on the route to Mikisew Provincial Park on nearby Eagle Lake

 

 

 

 

History 

 

 

 


Logging in the area began in the 1860s, but it was not until 1881 when the first settlers, Robert Carter and his wife, arrived following the completion of the Grand Trunk Railroad. Within a few years, they opened a general store and the new community, located on the eponymous South River, had hotels, a bank, a butcher shop, and jeweller. The river itself provided the power for a sawmill and grist mill, while also being used for log driving. In 1907, the village separated from Machar Township and was incorporated, with W.J. Ard as first reeve.

 

 

 

 

 

Local Industry and activities

 

 

 

 

A colourful local landmark is the Algonquin Motel, which uses painted cabins and rooms to attract visitors. The motel has been in operation for about seventy years.

South River is the access point for another tourist attraction: dog sledding on the North Algonquin Dog Sled Trail. Park permits are required. Visitors can arrange a trip with Chocpaw Expeditions, which is based in South River. Chocpaw Expeditions has been operating in South River for forty years. Chocpaw runs dog-sledding expeditions, canoe trips, and hiking trips for young people who are trying to qualify for awards under the Duke of Edinburgh's Award program at Gold, Silver, and Bronze levels. In 2014, Chocpaw Expeditions provided training, dogs, and equipment for a charity trek by officers of the Toronto Police force. They will sled 100 km through Algonquin Park to raise money for Victims Services.

South River is also home to Voyager Quest Outfitting. The Stewart Coughlin Riding Ranch provides horseback rides and riding instruction. A popular swimming spot is Eagle Lake Narrows, which is served by a general store that rents canoes. The Hockey Opportunity Camp, for boys and girls from 7 - 16 years old, is also on Eagle Lake.

The Swift Canoe and Kayak Factory has been in South River since 1989. It employs about twenty people. In the summer, Swift canoes are for sale next to the Tourist Information centre. There are many locations for freshwater fishing for smallmouth bass, whitefish, pickerel, rainbow trout, speckled trout, brook trout, lake trout, splake, ling perch and smelt.

There is a golf course, the Eagle Lake Golf and Country Club, which after decades as a nine-hole course, started expanding. It is currently a ten-hole course.

The town has a public library. Artists Doreen Wood and Sue Nugent live in South River. Artist Margaret Cunningham is in Eagle Lake. In town, Renée's Café brings live music and concerts to South River.

Arts and crafts also attract tourism. One noticeable local enterprise is the studio of Groovy Glass Beads, where unique hand-made beads are made and sold. Ron Post makes handmade knives and sheaths. Other crafts are found at The Northern Crafter's Collective, Rustic Blessings, and the Bear Chair Company.

South River has a successful dog-sled racer in Rene Marchildon. He was the 2011 winner of the 250-mile Irving Woodlands Can Am Crown International Sled Dog Race in Fort Kent, Maine. The 2011 race was completed by only six teams in dangerous blizzard conditions. Marchildon broke trail for the others, gaining their respect. He came second in this race in 2005. In 2007, he won a middle-distance race, the Willard Jalbert Memorial Can Am Crown 60-Mile Race. Marchildon has been racing competitively since 1999. He breeds his own dogs.
