|Welcome to the wondrous Red Lake - land of the fabled gold rush, home of the
Norseman planes and waterways teeming with a variety of fish. Come and lose
yourself in the tranquil nature that Red Lake is famous for. Let the water lap
at your ankles, ease the boat into a private cove or have a friendly tug-of-war
with a willing participant at the bottom of the lake. This and so much more is
waiting for you when you discover the beautiful Red Lake district!
Red Lake is a vast body of water, measuring a length of more than 50 kilometres in total. With arms that branch off and shorelines that stretch as far as the eye can see, the possibilities for angling opportunities are varied and expansive. Fish an open bay for cruising bass, or a deep breakline for hungry walleye - whatever your choice or style of angling, Red Lake will cover every base down to a T.
Summer is not the only time to enjoy the splendor of the area. Watch the breathtaking colours of the trees as they change their hue come fall. Ice fish for the big one as the lake hardens its outer shell during the winter months. Or watch the bird migration and the flora sprout up during the whimsical days of spring. Whatever the season, Red Lake is the ideal place to enjoy it.
Red Lake is located in Northwestern Ontario, approximately 170 kilometres north of the Trans Canada Highway, and the district is comprised of six communities. Located in the Temperate climate zone, winter can reach a chilly - 40 degrees Celsius and summer can see the temperature rise to +30 degrees Celsius. All in all, it's the perfect playground for the child in all of us…
Canoeing - Woodland Caribou Provincial park offers 1,000 backcountry campsites for the wilderness adventurer. Leave not a trace of your passage. Every bit of debris, every scar is an affront to the natural landscape. Camp at known campsites and use existing fire rings, or better yet, gas stoves. Structures such as lean-tos, tables, and benches are not allowed to be constructed at campsites or any where else in the park interior. Practice a pack-in/pack-out, no trace camping philosophy. With approximately 1,000 paddlers using the park each year, the solitude and serenity you seek is guaranteed. Many have described the Woodland Caribou experience to what Quetico was like 30-40 years ago. If you choose to come in September, be it to enjoy the quiet explosion of colour around you or to hear the moose calling you may very well be the only one in the park. Click here for some outfitters
