Woodland Caribou Provincial Park - August 2003
A Northern Ontario Canoeing Gem
Woodland Caribou Provincial Park is over 1.2 million acres of pristine wilderness that has never been logged. Similar to the Boundary Waters and Quetico this park is composed of lakes too numerous to mention connected by short portages. On our trip however we saw no other canoeists and had most of the lakes to ourselves. If you haven't been there you owe it to yourself to visit. If you have been there, I'm sure you'll be back.
Brent Vredevoogd, co-founder of Paddling.net invited his father-in-law to experience Northern Ontario and his first canoe trip ... but not likely his last.
We started on Wanda Lake, south of the Bloodvein River, and made our way north to the Bloodvein. We made our way east and south through Larus Lake, Murdock Lake, Knox Lake, and out to the Johnson Road entry point. We traveled upstream on the Bloodvein although you could rarely notice any current in this section of the river.
