Chippewa Falls is located about 55 km north of Sault Ste. Marie, as you wind your way around beautiful Batchawana Bay. The falls themselves are visible from highway 17. The place has a picnic/rest area where you can relax and watch the falls.
Batchwana comes from the Ojibway name obatchiwanang which means ‘where the flowing water rises to a boil through the force of its current’.
A commemorative plaque is situated here depicting the half way point of the Trans-Canada Highway. Numerous hiking trails too.
