What You'll Like :

Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands Provincial Park is a 33,505 hectare park that contains more than 100 habitat types and is a vast biological engine renowned for its rock barrens, and beaver fens. Although extensive, this habitat is fragile please follow the principles of leave no trace.

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

This park provides unique opportunity for a sustainable, semi wilderness recreation experience. Rugged canoe routes involving lakes, wetlands, and portages, and home to over 100 km of the Ganaraska Hiking Trail (The Wilderness Section www.ganaraska-hiking-trail.org) and a limited number of backcountry campsites
