Quetico Provincial Park

Quetico Provincial Park, one of the first parks established in Ontario, is a wilderness sanctum of international acclaim. Encompassing 469 456 hectares of lakes and rivers carving the Canadian Shield, the park is revered by paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts who desire the tranquility and challenges of a true wilderness experience.

The new Paul Kane exhibit is up in the Quetico Park Information Pavilion. This exhibit was at the Royal Ontario Museum last year. It tells the story of the painting and the results of an archaeological investigation at the site.

Boil Water Advisory for Dawson Trail Campgrounds: Water must be tested by the Local Public Health Laboratory before it is safe for use. The quality of the water is unknown at this time. Water can be rendered safe for drinking if boiled for at least one minute. All notices will be removed from the taps as soon as we have received confirmation of acceptable laboratory results. We should have more information by the middle of next week (~May 27). In the meantime, non-potable water is available in the campground.

Despite periods of warmer weather, there is still frost in the ground which is affecting our septic systems. The comfort station (washroom building) in the Ojibwa Campground and at the day use area have frozen septic lines. These comfort stations will remain closed until the lines thaw so that systems can functuion properly. All park users are invited to use the fully functional comfort station in Chippewa Campground or any of the privies located throughout the campground.

What was the Q100 Stewardship Project  

 The Q100 Stewardship Project was launched in celebration of the Centennial anniversary of Quetico Provincial Park and its American counterpart, Superior National Forest in 2009

Thank you for your past support of the Q100 Stewardship Project as a Partner or Supporter. The Q100 program is officially coming to a close at the end of March 2015. The site will live on. Areas that were formally reserved for Q100 members will be opened to all sometime in the spring of 2015.  All Supporter/Partner logos and web links have been removed from the website.
