Red Rock


Red Rock is a small township within the district of Thunder Bay in Northwestern Ontario. It is in the traditional territory of the Anishnaabeg and the Métis. Red Rock sits just west of the Nipigon River on the shores of Lake Superior. The surrounding scenery is unmatched, nestled between towering cliffs and rugged shorelines. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation, including hiking, popular fishing tournaments, and many other water sports. There is also the popular Red Rock Folk Festival in the summer. Live performances and workshops that will help you “find your folk” alongside over 2,000 other music enthusiasts. The Paju Mountain Run is another famous attraction. It boasts climbs for runners of all levels up the local Paju Mountain. The town’s economy is driven by the paper mill since there are abundant forest resources in the region. Nestled among the forested region is Neys Provincial Park. There you might see the historic Prisoner of War camp, elusive wild caribou populations, and unique geological formations.
