Ruby Lake Provincial Park incorporates three small lakes, wetlands and a mesa-cuesta named Doghead Mountain with cliffs and ravines that provide important habitat for bald eagle, and peregrine falcon, both of which are species of risk in Ontario. Ruby Lake Provincial Park is part of the OLL Great Lakes Heritage Coast Signature Site and is classified as a natural environment park. Ruby Lake is also located adjacent to Parks Canada’s National Marine Conservation Area.

Activities: The rugged terrain and extensive trail system offer park visitors opportunities for day-use that include hiking, scenic and wildlife viewing and nature interpretation. Access to he park may also be gained from Lake Superior by boaters and sea kayakers. Winter activities include informal cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

Location: The park is situated on the north shore of Lake Superior, at the mouth of the Nipigon River near the towns of Nipigon and Red Rock, and the Red Rock First Nation. The park does not include any waters of Lake Superior. Nipigon and Red Rock are both approximately 2.5 kilometres (straight-line distance) from the western boundary of the park.
