Stokely Creek

Stokely Creek has a 40+-year history of land conservation, designing, constructing and maintaining a trail system throughout the 8000 acre preserve, and is partnered with the Algoma Highlands Conservancy to manage this exceptional piece of Canadian Shield geography. Agoma’s Water tower Inn & Suites holds stewardship of 600 acres of protected land on the city’s northside, and we are proud to call our Algoma Highland’s neighbours friends.


Cross Country Skiing

Stokely/Algoma Highlands is one of the four largest Nordic ski areas in North America. Also very snowy…annually, 200 inches of lake-effect snowfall. 130 km are groomed for classic and skating ski styles, but there are many additional km of sometimes-groomed but well-signed trails. Ski to ice-covered lakes, enjoying the pristine silence and the snow-draped evergreens. Stay on the flats, or climb as high as King Mountain’s 1880-foot vertical.


Stokely Creek offers an extensive trail system with over 30km of pristine showshoeing trails and access to the cross-Ontario Voyageur Trail System. Every January, Stokely holds their annual Snowshoe Fest which attracts over 200 participants.

My first stay at the Water Tower Inn was after a family trip across Canada. We pulled in to the brand new facility in the wee hours of the morning after 5 weeks of camping. It was heavenly!!!! So much so that it became our first and last night stop whenever we headed west. Those stays are something of a legend in my family and this July I had the chance to show my son why. On a cold rainy day, coming back from Thunder Bay, we ditched the tent and checked in on our last night. I wouldn't have thought it could be better than my memories but it was. From the warm welcome at the front desk to the 2 hours we spent in the water. Thanks to the wonderful staff, facility and service the legend continues!
