Pukaskwa National Park


Pukaskawa National Park (pronounced “puck-a-saw”) is located on the shores of Lake Superior. Here you will find crashing waves, towering cliffs, and hidden sandy beaches. The region is rich in Anishinaabe First Nations culture, including many reconstructed Anishinaabe camps. There is also no shortage of wildlife in the region, including bears, moose, beavers, loons, and even the elusive lynx! This being one of the most remote parks, it has the longest undeveloped shoreline of all the Great Lakes. There are plenty of backcountry hiking and paddling routes for the adventures, along with two suspension bridges and extensive trails for camping along the way. While exploring, you might come across one of the many crystal clear waterfalls or some hidden treasure! This is a very popular geocaching destination — turn your hike into a thrilling treasure hunt for the whole family! Pukaskwa offers a true escape into nature and is a must-visit for anyone wishing to experience the true wilderness of the Great Lakes.
