Powassan, "the friendly town" had around 1200 people in the 80s, but then merged to include Trout Creek, South Himsworth and other neighbors. It is a small, hockey loving Northern Ontario town 30 km or so south
of North Bay, Ontario.
To the west lie many nice lakes, nice fishing and access to the South Shore of Lake Nipissing.
Wade's landing, the South River, and other camps give access to the water.
Nipissing Village is a tiny village with one of the nicest Canada Post offices in Ontario (go check it out)
Bowman's chute is a small falls near the bridge over South River. Access is going northwards on the first road on the west side of the Bridge over the South River.
One can canoe the South River from near Powassan (Bingham Chute)?? which is a very nice trip. One must portage the Nipissing Power Plant, however the wooden barrel type turnstock(??) tube taking water to the dam turbines is worth the trip.
After Bingham Chute(?) the South River meanders its way to Lake Nipissing.
Near downtown Powassan, there is a nice hike in 'The Pines' up to 'The Mountain' Nice view.
