I'm planning a canoe trip this summer to Temagami with my son, our first trip in 17 years. His business is such that he has to be in constant touch. His cell phone provider is Verizon. Can anyone tell me if there is reliable cell phone service in the Temagami area?

Providers usually have coverage maps if you go to their website. Pretty easy to determine.

I have to think it's unlikely you'll get good service far from highway 11. Someone else could probably answer better than myself. I'm just going off of this: https://www.ertyu.org/steven_nikkel/cancellsites.html

Thanx. We're doing the loop from central access through Shiningwood Bay, Wasasinka Lake, Cross Lake, Portage Bay, Cross Bay and back to central access. Does anyone know how coverage is on this loop?

Did you check the map I posted against the loop map?

Yes, I did. Thanx. And I called Verizon, Temagami Outfitting Co. and a hotel just north of the central access. Verizon told me there is coverage. Temagami Outfitting and the hotel told me coverage is spotty. We're looking in to renting a satellite phone.
