DescriptionA settlement at the concealed mouth of the Mississagi River between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie, Blind River was so named because the approach to the river could not be seen from Lake Huron. Historically a lumbering town, it is now the site of Cameco Ltd., a uranium refinery. The importance of the forestry industry to the area is depicted by the bronze Northern Ontario Logging Memorial next to Timber Village Museum.
A modern marina facility is available to accommodate boaters. The area also is noted for its camping, hiking trails, beaches, hunting, fishing and ice fishing, golfing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and boating.
