Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands

What You'll Like :

Formerly known as Dalton Digby Wildlands, this park is one of the most diverse and least disturbed natural areas found in Central Ontario. Containing more than 50 landform vegetation patterns, this site has limited or no recent history of logging. Its low-rolling topography includes organic soils, flat sandy deposits, and bare bedrock uplands with shallow soil patches.

Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands Provincial Park is an 82,793 acre (33,505 hectare) natural environment class park spanning from Haliburton County on the east side of the park, through the northern townships of the City of Kawartha Lakes; to the District Municipality of Muskoka on the west.

QEII Wildlands is a non-operating park with no maintained public facilities or services. Visitors should be prepared to use appropriate route finding and safety practices as interior travel beyond access points requires navigating in remote semi-wilderness environments. Cellular service cannot be relied upon as a means of communication or navigation within the park.

Access points are located at:

  • 1115 Devils Lake Road – Township of Minden Hills
  • 1526 Black River Road – City of Kawartha Lakes
