Spent two weeks canoe camping in the park and saw only two other parties and that was in the same day. Saw a caribou swimming. Scenery was outstanding. This was our fifth time to the park. My husband loves the fishing.

The area is primarily for canoeing. However, there are some lodges in the park. We have set up a tent base camp for the past two years and canoed the area. We use to canoe rivers, but age has caught with us. We explore the area and fish. What a find. As we paddled up one river we saw two... More

I learned many things on this trip, one of which is that I suck at reading topo maps. I also learned that sometimes you need someone's help to get you out of a muddy bog. Even though I didn't get as far into the park as I'd have liked, the trip was amazing. I'm accustomed to marked portages and well... More

With only 700 visitors a year, this a great place to get away from it all. Having now done 8 trips, we go to not see anyone else. Pristine lakes, wildlife, fishing, northern lights are all great parts of as WCPP visit.

Just like most of northwestern Ontario Woodland Caribou Park is a true reflection of living in the north, very few people, no noise, no congestion, lots of wildlife. Sunrise and sunsets are beautiful. Access is difficult. It would be nice to have a road skirt the park boundary to give more of the public easier access.

Flew from Red Lake to Viking Island Lodge, for the last seven years, for probably my favorite week of the year! Great fishing, and a great organization. Truly "Gentlemen Fishing!"

Viking Island is within Woodland Caribou Park. A very small camp on an island in Douglas Lake. We enjoy the park, the quiet, the scenery, and the adventure with a roof over our head at night.
