The beautiful and wild Pukaskwa National Park is located in northern Ontario, Canada and protects some of the longest undeveloped shoreline on the Great Lakes. The park is a mix of boreal forest, marshland, and coastline of Lake Superior and covers 725 square miles. Highlights of the park include the Coastal Hiking Trail and two suspension bridges, one across the Willow River and the other across the White River. Weather at Pukaskwa National Park varies greatly throughout the year and even throughout the day. Be prepared for shifts in weather at any time, and bring rain gear and warm clothes in case of a sudden change. Hiking, enjoying the beach, and kayaking are favorite activities for visitors of the park. Hike down to Horseshoe Beach during the summer to explore the dunes and sandy shores. Pukaskwa National Park is also home to the Coastal Paddling Route, which is a multi day backcountry paddling adventure for those who want to experience the pristine wilderness along Lake Superior. And the Anishinaabe camp inside the park is not to be missed. Visitors can learn from interpreters about the culture, history, and traditions of the Anishinaabek people. Pukaskwa National Park is fairly remote. The town of Marathon is 3 miles away, while the park is a 3.5 hour drive from Thunder Bay and a 5 hour drive from Sault Ste. Marie. The park is open from late spring to fall and facilities are closed November to May.
