The park’s vast expanse of pure wilderness provides infinite options for winter adventurers.
The park is unserviced during the winter months but the park gates are open during the daytime from January 1 to the end of March so visitors can still enjoy the park. Most roads remain unplowed and form part of the snowmobile trail system. For those who enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, the park offers un-groomed scenic trails.
Unserviced wilderness camping is also available, as well as ice fishing for perch, trout and landlock salmon on Big Nictau Lake (bring your angling license and your equipment).
