Thompson, Manitoba

Campgrounds are available south of Thompson at Paint Lake Provincial Park.

Thompson is dubbed the Hub of the North and has a number of services not usually available in a city with a population of only around 13,000. Among these are two malls and judicial facilities for the areas farther north. Its economy has been largely linked to mining since the discovery in 1956 of a major ore body. Other major industries are related: milling, smelting and refining of nickel, including processing of raw nickel concentrates from Voisey's Bay, Labrador.

A recently completed walkway/biking pathway called Spirit Way features wolf statues. Its 10 ft. wolf mural is a reproduction of a Robert Bateman piece and is the only mural in existence that is derived from one of his works.

Paint Lake, about 37 km south and east of Thompson, has the province's largest marina and a Precambrian shield boreal forest setting. The lake is spotted with many small islands. The park is used for summer and winter activities.
