Driving instructions

Any map will easily get you to Hearst Ontario. Hearst is located on Hwy 11 East of the 631 intersection (the direction you will be coming if you come from Sault Ste Marie). 

  • Do not follow GPS directions to Oba however. They are misleading.

  • Hearst to Oba is about 120 kilometers South of Hearst

  • On Hwy 11 at Hearst, turn south at the light (second light if you’re coming from the West) at Highway 583 South.

  • On Highway 583 South, go about 12kms.

  • In the middle of a right curve in the road, turn left. (There is a small sign that says Oba.) 

  • After the left turn, immediately turn right on a dirt logging road (Caithness Road). You should now be going south. 

  • No more cell service beyond this point.

  • Stay on the main road. 

  • You do not cross any railroad tracks until you get to Oba. If you cross railroad tracks, you’ve made a wrong turn.)

  • Watch for the little signs to Oba. (See below) 

The first turn will be just past the 66 mileage marker        The second turn will be about 26kms

(turn right)                                                                       (keep right)

It may feel like you’ll never get to Oba. Don’t worry, it can be slow going. 

  • The last stretch of your trip is about 10kms. 

  • Once in Oba, follow the road in, to the railroad tracks. 

  • Cross the tracks and continue until you see our Cameron Lake Fishing Lodges sign. BE CAREFUL. Watch for trains.

  • Turn right at the sign and follow the road past the cemetery (on your left) and past the old shacks down the hill to our boat launch. You’re there! 

Someone will meet you at our landing, to guide you down the river to Cameron Lake!
