The best camping near Caribou River Provincial Park guide



Embark on an adventure through Caribou River Provincial Park, a vast expanse where the boreal forest meets the tundra. With no direct road access, this park promises a true wilderness experience. Venture along the Caribou River system, navigate rapids, and marvel at waterfalls. The park's remote nature makes it perfect for wilderness camping, with visitors encouraged to use existing campfire rings to minimize their impact.

When to go

The best time to visit Caribou River Provincial Park is during the short subarctic summer, from late June to early September, when the weather is milder. Winter months can be extremely harsh, with heavy snowfall and temperatures that can plummet well below freezing, making it suitable only for the most experienced adventurers.

Know before you go

  • Wilderness camping means no designated campsites; choose spots with signs of previous use.
  • Access is limited to aircraft or extended canoe or snowmobile trips; plan accordingly.
  • Prepare for rapidly changing weather conditions and pack suitable gear.
  • Permafrost and eskers shape the terrain, so tread lightly to preserve the fragile ecosystem.
  • Respect wildlife and maintain a safe distance at all times.
