Paint Lake Provincial Park

Northeast Parks

Misty Paint Lake morning

Paint Lake, with its countless islands, is the centerpiece of this park. Around every corner, from every small bay, the lake offers you a different view of the grand northern landscape. The enticing waters, and rugged Precambrian Shield make this area a magnet for outdoor adventurers.

Where to Stay

At Paint Lake, two campgrounds provide basic and electrically serviced sites. Group campsites are also available. A lodge in the park offers you added comforts year-round.
