What You'll Like :

Gull River Provincial Park is noted for its multi-day canoe tripping opportunities. The opportunities for angling are numerous and since much of the river is good moose habitat and there are a few documented aquatic-feeding areas, viewing opportunities are excellent. Day use scenic viewing of a waterfall is possible with trail access (approximately 500 m) from the Detour Lake Road. This waterway contains kettle, moraine and outwash features, steep slopes and fisheries habitat. It provides a waterway linkage from Lake Nipigon to other protected areas and waterways.

Location: The park, which spans over 80 km, begins at the Garden Lake Road (Hwy. 811) on the Mooseland River. It travels in a northeasterly direction meeting the Gull River, then onwards to the Gull Bay First Nation, 5 km to the west of Hwy 527. It is located approximately 160 km north of the City of Thunder Bay and 93 km south of the Town of Armstrong.

Park Facilities: There are no visitor facilities available.
