What You'll Like:

  • This wilderness park is a paddler’s paradise offering almost 2,000 km of maintained canoe routes on a myriad of rivers and lakes.
  • Enjoy solitude and commune with nature; Woodland Caribou welcomes fewer than 1,000 paddlers per season. This undisturbed boreal forest is home to one of the largest groups of woodland caribou south of Hudson Bay.
  • Two major river systems – the Gammon and Bloodvein flow through the park; Bloodvein River is designated as a Canadian Heritage River
  • Excellent fishing for walleye, Northern Pike and Lake Trout and areas with Smallmouth Bass and muskellunge
  • This area is valued by local Indigenous people who call this home and who honour the area with stories and teachings. Pictographs (rock paintings) are located throughout the park and must be treated with respect.
  • Woodland Caribou is part of the Pimachiowin Aki World UNESCO Heritage Site established in 2018 in partnership with four First Nations and the Ontario and Manitoba governments. This linked network of protected areas has been recognized for both its cultural and natural significance.
  • Woodland Caribou is open year-round
