Woodland Caribou Provincial Park

Ontario’s Woodland Caribou Park shares a boundary with Manitoba’s Atikaki Park, but nature knows no boundaries. Here begins the Bloodvein River, a Canadian Heritage River which draws paddlers from around the world. Park permits are required of paddlers, and the revenue generated from permit sales is reinvested in the management of the park. Let us help you plan your next adventure in one of Ontario’s great natural treasures.
