Woodland Caribou Provincial Park. Water Routes

Woodland Caribou Provincial Park, located between Red Lake and the Manitoba border, is home to large herds of woodland caribou. As Ontario's 5th largest Provincial Park, it offers over 1,600 kilometres of canoe routes. You can paddle the fur trade routes of the Hudson Bay and Northwest Companies or explore a chain of unnamed lakes. The abundance of connecting waterways provides the canoeist with the flexibility to plan unlimited and unique canoe routes within the park. You are more likely to see a woodland caribou, a moose or black bear than a human being. Woodland Caribou Park is accessed primarily by aircraft, but there is water access via Red Lake to the Gammon River System (Douglas Lake). Main water access points from the east are lakes such as Knox, Douglas, Leano, Sydney and Eagle.
