About the Park

Home to the Ojibway people of yesterday and today, an area once travelled by fur traders, and home to one of the largest groups of woodland caribou south of Hudson Bay, this cultural landscape promises ancient pictographs, howling wolves under starry skies, soaring eagles, solitude and adventure. Classified as a “wilderness” class park, it spans 1.2 million acres/486,235 ha. Many paddlers visit the park, and never see another person for the duration of their trip!

Plan Your Trip

This northern wilderness “where nature still rules” is so remote that canoe trippers and sport fishing enthusiasts reach its backcountry campsites and outpost lodges only by water or by air. An active surrounding community of outfitters, guides, lodging, and fly-in services, makes getting into the remote backcountry easier than ever.
