Charleson Recreation Area is an area of fantastic recreational opportunities located on the northern edge of Atikokan, ON.  Summer or winter, if you prefer your activities motorized or not or maybe even a mix of both, there is something to attract every outdoor activity enthusiast. If you like your adventure mixed with a bit of high octane, there are motocross tracks open to the public with several events throughout the racing season; a 4x4 mud racing track which holds the very popular Mudfling weekend every summer and snowmobiling on world class trails in the winter.
