sand bar

Sand River (Ontario)

The Sand River (French: rivière Sand) is a river in the Algoma District of Ontario, Canada which flows from Sand Lake and empties into Lake Superior south of Wawa, Ontario.

The Ojibway name for the river is Pinguisibi. Where pingui means fine white sand and sibi means river.

The river descends to the lake in a series of low cascades in Lake Superior Provincial Park. The river is named after the sand bar formed across its mouth. A picnic area can be found at the mouth of the river next to Highway #17 where many travelers stop to enjoy a nice view of the cascading falls as the river nears Lake Superior.
