Opasquia Provincial Park
Between Lake Winnipeg and Hudson Bay, Opasquia (pronounced O-pas-q-way) is a designated Wilderness Park amid the vast stretches of unpopulated terrain. It is a non-operating park, which means it does not have any visitors’ facilities and the only way in is by air, but it also means you will find that ultimate solitude. Backcountry camping is still permitted, and there is even one fishing outpost/outfitter within the park’s one million acres (473,000 ha). In Ontario, you can find outfitters and floatplane service for Opasquia at the end of the road in both Pickle Lake and Red Lake. In Manitoba, Bissett and Matheson Island are the closest services to this remote park. Check with your outfitter or floatplane service for costs; air charter service is charged by the kilometer/mile and will vary with the price of fuel.
